2.0 out of 5 stars No happy ending to this book! Is it the end of the series?
I really enjoyed Charlaine Harris's mysteries, both the Aurora Teagarden and Lily Bard ones. But be forewarned -- this book does not have a happily-ever-after ending. Her mysteries are never "cozy", but I found this ending very upsetting and don't understand why she chose such a sorrowful happening, unless this is how she has decided to ring down the curtain...

This review is from: A Fool and His Honey: An Aurora Teagarden Novel (AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERY) (Paperback)
A Fool And His Honey is the sixth novel in the Aurora Teagarden series by American author, Charlaine Harris. The unexpected arrival in Lawrenceton of Martin's niece, Regina, with a very young baby no-one even knew she had, sets in motion a series of events that have tragic consequences. The murder of Regina's husband, Craig, and the disappearance of Regina herself leaves Roe holding the baby. Much as she may have wanted her own child, with her inexperience in this field, Roe finds her resourcefulness running low with the challenge and responsibility of suddenly looking after this tiny life. Travelling back to Martin's home town with the baby and encountering his ex-wife again end up being the least of Roe's worries. Harris weaves an intriguing puzzle that keeps the reader guessing. It is refreshing to find an author who is not afraid to age her characters and have them face real-life problems which don't always resolve neatly and happily. Roe is portrayed realistically and her inner monologue is very enjoyable: I especially liked her summarising her situation in a Country Song Title. As this instalment ends on a low note, I am glad there are two more to come and look forward to Last Scene Alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Targarden tale, 4 Sept. 1999
By A Customer
Aurora Teagarden is very happy as she loves her new spouse Martin Bartell very much. She fully enjoys her work at the library and that her home just a mile outside Lawrenceton, Georgia is near her beloved mother's residence, but far enough away for some relief.
However, today turns into an ugly nightmare for the contented Roe. It starts simply enough when the person delivering wood goes crazy due to someone planting an illegal drug within his bottle of acetaminophen. Things turn even nastier when Martin's niece Regina arrives with an infant. No one even knew the lass was pregnant. A few hours later, Regina has vanished leaving behind her baby and her murdered spouse. Martin and Roe decide to track down their errant relative by following her trail to Ohio, not knowing that a killer awaits their findings.
A TASTE OF HONEY, the fifth Teagarden amateur sleuth tale, is an intriguing blending of a Southern cozy within a dark mystery. The exciting story line will leave readers enthusiastically seeking the previous tales. Roe remains a wonderful character whose needs and desires add much depth to her persona. The support cast provides a realistic feel of desperation that makes the plot feel as if it actually has happened. Charlaine Harris makes reading fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light entertainment, 20 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a good story which kept me guessing 'whodunit' all through. Although it contained murder and assault and enough tension to keep me reading, it still managed to be enjoyable. Charlaine Harris obviously has a good sense of humour and I easily warmed to her Aurora character who was very believable, and yet not real enough to give me nightmares..

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Teagarden mystery, 14 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great book with some great twists and turns as well as really poignant moments.
I love all Charlaine Harris books but at this stage in this series it feels a bit samey. That said however, I couldn't put the book down.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just love Aurora Teagarden, 15 April 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book veers away from Lawrencton, and follows someone from Martins family, with a brilliant plot, and a sad ending, it is just as gripping, if not more so than the previous Aurora books. A great read for all Teagarden fans.
