If I could be a fictional book character...I'd love to be Aurora. She's spunky, fun and adventurous, plus, you can't beat her love for libraries and mysteries!

Charlaine Harris has a way with telling stories, and she never disappoints. ( )

As always Charlaine Harris writes clearly and easily. The story was a bit lackluster this time and the book was average, although enjoyable. ( )

Aurora is startled when she is informed that an elderly reading friend who has died left her home and savings to Aurora. But what she finds comes with the inheritance is a mystery that needs solving before it turns even more deadly.

This was a fun read, especially when Roe is forced to deliver the baby of her former arch rival. Looking forward to more. ( )

This book's plot was very stretched and ultimately pointless. The reasoning behind the whole thing was very contrived and unconvincing.

The first book was ok. On the basis of this book, I won't be continuing with the series. ( )

so Aurora still bored me but the mystery was neat. i did figure out some of it but not enough to give away the ending. ( )

Book description
Copied over from Amazon: "Aurora Teagarden's life was pretty much in order, though she wouldn't have objected to a nice relationship. All things considered, however, there wasn't anything to complain about. Then Jane Engle died. Aurora and Jane had been friends - not particularly close friends, but they'd both been members of the Real Murder Society and on occasion had shared tea, as well as an interest in crime. So Aurora was surprised to discover that she was named in Jane's will as the heir to her home and some money . . . about a half million dollars, in fact. A nice house, a lot of money . . . things were looking up nicely. But the house held a secret - a fact that was frighteningly obvious the first time Aurora went there and realized that someone had broken in, had been searching for something..."
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425219798, Mass Market Paperback)

Death comes calling on a small-town librarian whose life is passing her by.

Aurora "Roe" Teagarden's fortunes change when a deceased acquaintance names her as heir to a rather substantial estate, including money, jewelry, and a house complete with a skull hidden in a window seat. Roe concludes that the elderly women has purposely left her a murder to solve. So she must identify the victim and figure out which one of her new, ordinary-seeming neighbors is a murderer-without putting herself in deadly danger.
