#10 in the Aurora Teagarden Mystery Series
In the latest installment of the #1 New York Times Bestselling Charlaine Harris’s Aurora Teagarden series, Robin and Aurora have finally begun their adventure in parenting. With newborn Sophie proving to be quite a handful, Roe’s mother pays for a partially trained nurse, Virginia Mitchell, to come help the new parents for a few weeks. Virginia proves to be especially helpful when Robin has to leave town for work and Roe is struck with a bad case of the flu.
One particularly stormy night, Roe wakes to hear her daughter crying and Virginia nowhere to be found. Roe’s brother Philip helps her search the house and they happen upon a body outside… but it isn’t Virginia’s. Now, not only does she have a newborn to care for and a vulnerable new marriage to nurture, Roe also has to contend with a new puzzle – who is this mystery woman dead in their backyard, and what happened to Virginia? This heart-pounding and exciting next installment of the Aurora Teagarden series will leave fans happy and hungry for more.
Poor Roe and Robin! Trouble is attracted to them like a bear to honey!
Trying to adjust to life as a new mother is proving to be a challenge. Sleep deprived, and now sick, Roe is happy to have Virginia back to help out while Robin is off to Nashville to accept an award.
But when she is jostled out of sleep by the baby monitor and her little girl crying, she can’t find Virginia anywhere. And when she spies a body lying in the backyard that isn’t Virginia she calls the police.
They take care of the body but where is Virginia? Her car is still parked out front and she has disappeared.
So who is this mystery woman in the yard and who killed her? Will life ever be normal in their world? Things happened at such a quick pace that this was a quick and easy read.
I look forward to seeing what is next for Roe and Robin.
