Book Review

by Charlaine Harris

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth

RT Rating

The second book in Harris' Aurora Teagarden series -- originally published in 1992 -- is an enjoyable and intriguing cozy. Aurora is a delightful, realistic and funny character. Her reasoning moves her forward in her investigation, and her wit gets her through. The pacing is comfortable; it never races forward, but it never feels too slow either.

Southern librarian Aurora ("Roe") is having an interesting week. First she finds out that Jane Engle,
a member of her disbanded crime
discussion group, has passed away. Then she learns she's inherited the woman's substantial estate. Everything seems great until she finds a human skull in the house. Roe knows Jane loved discussing crime but never thought she'd partake in it! Now
she must figure out what Jane was
up to before she finds any more
body parts. (Berkley Prime Crime, Feb.,
