I like Roe, the main protagonist.

Familiar with Aurora Teagarden from a movie and the next trilog, it is delightfu to follow the acquisition of her house.

The irony of Aurora 's inner thoughts, her outright predicaments, and Charlaine 's whole delivery are wonderful! Romance comes up but true to real life, she does n't fai to score the first guy introduced.

Willing Aurora to solve it in regretful retrospect became unnecessarily cryptic.

There must have een little to solve if Jane had reported it.

Really if you 're ooking for something with a ood story line, humour, suspens, entertaining and with a smidge of romance, Ms. Harris always delivers.

his series feels like it is written for a very conservative homogeneous audience.

ow it 's time to o through boxes containing 7 years' worth of receipts!) ( view spoiler) [ Finall, without warning, near the beginnin of disc 5, someone breaks into he house while our heroine is there and the murderer follows ( giving a sudden and full confession, of course).

lso, I took major issue with Lynn having her baby at the end- the likelihood that anyone, let alone a first time mother, gives birth in the time it takes police to arrive since calling 911, is stupi.

ctually less time, because the plot was 1) call 911 2) Lynn arrives at he house ( from across the street), spends some time getting the burglar under control 3) her water breaks 4) baby magically pops out suddenly with no labor whatsoever and only 2 pushes 5) police arrive.
