Baker & Taylor When Aurora Teagarden's delivery man goes crazy in her backyard, Aurora finds herself investigating a series of increasingly mysterious events, culminating in an ax murder
Charlaine Harris has charmed audiences recently with her noirish cozy series starring Lily Bard. Now she returns to her cozy roots with her first Aurora--Roe--Teagarden mystery since Dead Over Heels. Roe and her new and considerably older husband Martin are settled into their new life quite nicely when everything changes with the arrival of Martin's niece Regina. The flighty Regina lands on their doorstep with a baby no one knew she was expecting, then disappears a few hours later leaving both the baby and her husband's brutally murdered corpse in her wake. Roe and Martin must try to answer all the questions in this sticky case: whodunnit, why, and where (as in, Where the heck did this baby come from?). Fans of Roe's earlier exploits and of Lily Bard will be delighted by Harris' reprisal of the Teagarden series.
Blackwell North Amer Charlaine Harris's amateur sleuth, liberated Southern belle Aurora Teagarden, makes her return in this mystery about family secrets and small-town intrigue. Everything in Roe's life finally seems to be going her way. She's newly and quite happily married to Martin Bartell, happy to be back at her part-time job at the library, and settled into her dream home just outside Lawrenceton, Georgia - and there haven't been any dead bodies in Roe's life for quite a while. But when mild-mannered Darius Quattermain goes crazy in her backyard when he should be stacking firewood, it turns out to be just the first in a string of troublesome events.
Baker & Taylor When her husband's young niece arrives on the doorstep with a new, unexpected baby in tow, Roe is surprised, but the girl's equally sudden disappearance in the wake of a killing drags the reluctant couple into a murder investigation.
