In Which Aurora is left Holding the Baby.....
on 21 August 2017
You'll be in for a great big roller-coaster of a ride with this sixth instalment in the (never boring) life of Aurora Teagarden - the immensely likeable protagonist created by Charlaine Harris. This one's a corker. Aurora is settling nicely into married life with Martin - things can only get better. Right? Wrong! Trouble arrives - in the form of Regina, Martins' niece, holding a baby. From then on in, the ride begins in earnest. Fast paced, closely plotted, cleverly written and keeping it real - Charlaine Harris does not disappoint her readers. The finale is upsetting - but it only serves to keep her characters all the more real - and, thankfully, there is plenty more to come. This novel can be read as a standalone (there are plenty of references and some explanation of past events) but there is a definite timeline to the series of books and much more enjoyment can definitely be had by reading them in succession. Highly, highly recommended for readers who love a cleverly plotted, well drawn mystery with a big, big heart.
