Light read. Not on a par with the Sookie Stackhouse novels but entertaining. ( )

This second installment was a pretty quick read, and I enjoyed seeing how threads from the first book of this Aurora Teagarden series showed up in the second. I did feel like this story was more "day-to-day" goings on, and less suspenseful than the first book of the series, Real Murders.

One of the surprises in this book for me was that Aurora "Roe" quit her job at the library. Her job was one factor that interested me in this series. I'll be interested in how Aurora's character develops as the series progresses. ( )

A Bone to Pick has Roe inherit a house and alot of money from one of the old members of Real Murders. In the house she finds a skull that has been there for a few years. Someone on the street is a murderer and is trying to find out who has the skull. The stage is set up for the next book to have alot of changes. Not her best series but it's an ok one.

Short and sweet, it's a pleasure re-reading these Aurora books. I thought there would be some hinky math with Lynn and Arthur's child and the date when Aurora and Arthur broke up, but it looks like my imagination got the better of me there. ( )

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.
