Aurora "Roe" Teagarden has unexpectedly inherited from a deceased acquaintance - and estate includes a skull hidden in a window seat with a murder to solve. Another nice read. ( )

About the same as the first, maybe a shade better. It's a mystery. A little romance, but mostly a fluff book. For some reason, I find them very engaging, though. Off to read the next. ( )

Quick entertaining read from Harris. Shes always a fun storyteller. ( )

I'm not sure what to make of this book. Other than a murder there isn't much mystery. No sleuthing to be seen here. The "who done it" is solved by no one really. It's just dumb luck. There is another lackluster budding romance that is no better than in the first book. Aurora strikes me as unfeeling greedy little thing in this book. She's so happy with her inheritance without much regard to the dead friend that left it all to her. Then she decides she doesn't want to work anymore. She just seems rather unfocused and uninspiring in this book. ( )

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.
