Sleep Like a Baby
An Aurora Teagarden Mystery #10
Minotaur Books, September 2017
From the publisher—
In Sleep Like a Baby, the latest installment of the #1 New York Times Bestselling Charlaine Harris’s Aurora Teagarden series, Robin and Aurora have finally begun their adventure in parenting. With newborn Sophie proving to be quite a handful, Roe’s mother pays for a partially trained nurse, Virginia Mitchell, to come help the new parents for a few weeks. Virginia proves to be especially helpful when Robin has to leave town for work and Roe is struck with a bad case of the flu.
One particularly stormy night, Roe wakes to hear her daughter crying and Virginia nowhere to be found. Roe’s brother Philip helps her search the house and they happen upon a body outside… but it isn’t Virginia’s. Now, not only does she have a newborn to care for and a vulnerable new marriage to nurture, Roe also has to contend with a new puzzle — who is this mystery woman dead in their backyard, and what happened to Virginia? This heart-pounding and exciting next installment of the Aurora Teagarden series will leave fans happy and hungry for more.
Why am I waiting so eagerly? I’ve enjoyed every series Ms. Harris has ever done and I was SO happy when she started this one back up last year after a too-long hiatus, 13 years. (I’m also addicted to the Hallmark movie series). Aurora has always struck me as somebody I’d like to know in real life and her snoopiness doesn’t pluck my nerves like in some other cozy series. All in all, Roe is a good sleuth and entertains me to boot 😉
