I am very not happy with this series now, and it's author. What a complete waste of time, reading through it all.Harris decided a few novels ago, that the reason Roe could not have children with her husband (at the time) Martin, was because she has a "deformed uterus". Roe was understandably upset. A novel or two later, it was described as "malformed", and Martin had died. Another novel later, Roe could date, and eventually sleep with, former boyfriend Robin, the writer who had left for Ca. at t [...]

I love these Aurora Teagarden mysteries! I have thoroughly enjoyed them all equally. They are like candy - super quick reads but with substance, humor and terrific character development. I find myself laughing out loud quite a bit a Roe's antics and her ability to get herself into the craziest situations. In this particular story Charlaine Harris incorporates a lot of character development in regards to Roe's family and friends, which was wonderful! Getting to know these secondary characters mor [...]

About the same as the other books in this series, but the plot just wasn't up to snuff. Light, fun reading. A likable character who just seems to have murders going on around her. This one might have been a bit more complex & better EXCEPT I thought the cover was a spoiler & it was! That's just wrong. The cover of my edition showed Aurora (view spoiler)[ standing in front of a pool. The character who is murdered is her SIL who doesn't have a pool, but her next door neighbor does & we [...]

This book appeared to be the last in the Aurora Teagarden series. There were 8 books from 1990 to 2003. I enjoyed the series but still had several in my TBR stack. Then Hallmark's mystery channel picked up the Aurora Teagarden series and two new books were written. One was released in 2016 and the other one in 2017. Hopefully, there will more going forward. Charlaine Harris is a diverse author. She has written several series and each is uniquely different. It is like a different author wrote eac [...]

A fitting end(?) to the series. Although I read the rest of the books back in 2009, I found it incredibly easy to fall back into Aurora's world. Charlaine Harris has a knack for creating eccentric, memorable characters. It took but a moment for me to remember the gossip about the various inhabitants of Lawrenceton and I was pleased to catch up on the latest news.There were a few plot threads left hanging, making me hope that Ms. Harris visits Roe in the future. Perhaps a short story allowing us [...]

Originally, I had saved this book until right before All the Little Liars came out, because I wanted to read them close together. Well, I got caught up in other books and this one just slipped my mind, but when I went to a bookstore the other day and saw it, I knew I had to pick it up (Especially since All the Little Liars has been out for a year, and Sleep Like a Baby is almost out!). I am sure glad I did it, because I forgot how good these were!The thing I love most about these books is the wa [...]

I am glad this is the last in the series. Each book and the series in general has been rather uneven and seemed a bit experimental. Experimentation can be a good thing, but far too often the way these books were written rubbed me the wrong way. In some of the earlier books I could see Aurora trying to emulate Sally Jesse Raphael by having brightly colored eyeglass frames, but this book came out in 2003, and Aurora was still doing it. The ridiculous way Aurora had several pairs of glasses and wou [...]

I can't believe this is the same author who wrote the Sookie Stackhouse series. The Aurora Teagarden series is absolute trash. There are so many inconsistencies within the stories and there are gaping holes in the plot of each novel. The main character herself is one of the most annoying characters I have ever encountered in a book. She is supposedly 29 (if I remember right) when the series begins and 35 when it ends, but she acts more like 65. She is incredibly whiny, self-centered and shallow [...]

This book was the proverbial last straw, breaking my support of this author. You know, I *enjoyed* the Sookie Stackhouse books, even though the writing was poor and the plots were flimsy. I raced through the Harper Connelly books, even though they were, well, ridiculous. The Lily Bard and Aurora Teagarden books have just done me in though. I've struggled through this particular series, put off by unlikeable characters, plots implausible even for a mystery serial, a writing style less developed t [...]

I like these cozy murder mysteries by Charlaine Harris. Her Sookie Stackhouse series about vampires have made her much more famous. I suspect that the supernatural setting is more intriguing to readers (I like them too), but I enjoy the small-town natural setting of these Aurora Teagarden mysteries. I've read all eight of the series so far. Aurora is a librarian and I have enjoyed watching her fictional life unfold, with mysteries to solve, romances to agonize over, murderers to catch, and corre [...]

I'd recently read the first two or three books in the series, and when I came across this one in a stack somewhere picked it up. Big mistake. Don't jump from book #3 in the series to book #8. Huge things change. In fact, the protagonist Roe Teagarden, who finally seemed to grow a spine by book #3 is back to her mamby-pamby second-guessing. (Dear god, is she really a 105-year old woman in a 30-year old's body?!) It was gaggingly cliched, and with the trite way it ended I will not be able to read [...]

Well, after reading the whole series I finally have given one 4 stars. 4 for an interesting plot, 4 for well developed characters and 4 for best improved writing. I hope there are more Aurora Teagarden's to come. Now, it still drives me nuts that she calls her step-sibling a "brother-in-law" half of the time. Where's the editor? This series got me through a five day flu and I thank Ms Harris for keeping me company.

Aurora Teagarden is back again with a murder that hits closer to home. Aurora's step sister-in-law has been murdered and Aurora is the one to find the body. There are many suspects and until the author began to give clues near the end, I had no idea who was responsible. Poppy was involved with a lot of men and each man seems to have been in love with her and wants to find the murderer. Meanwhile someone has ransacked Poppy's home. Who is doing the searching and what are they searching for? Meanw [...]

Aurora sister-in-law is killed and of course Aurora's the First on scene and the first to investigate. I do not understand Aurora's ability to stumble upon murders or why she always insists on hiding and taking evidence and then wondering why cases are not solved as quickly. I did like where the personal storyline went between her and her boyfriend as well as her brother coming back.

This is the first Aurora Teagarden book and it is book #8 in the series. I didn't feel confused by not reading the other books. After seeing that the Hallmark Mystery Channel has several Aurora Teagarden movies, I was curious enough about Aurora to finally grab a book that was on sale. I enjoyed this easy reading book with characters whose other adventures I am adding to my TBR lists.

Nope. My review for the first book, Real Murders, was for too optimistic and hopeful.Having sex on a regular basis didn't make Aurora more interesting. Instead, we're treated to more whining and sulking over her tilted uterus. Just adopt already! It won't be your kid, but guess what? You looked after a baby for a few days and couldn't handle it, so maybe that's a sign you shouldn't have kids. Adopting an older one that can speak and use the bathroom on it's own might be the best idea. But no. In [...]

La verdad, me ha decepcionado que este sea el final de la serie de libros de Roe. El misterio no me ha gustado nada y tampoco lo ha hecho Roe, la protagonista, que si en el libro anterior parecía que iba a volver a ser ella misma en este no está tan claro.(view spoiler)[Para empezar, que Poppy, la cuñada asesinada de Roe, pase de ser la madre del año a ser una ninfómana con un trágico pasado en el que su padre abusaba de ella me choca muchísimo. Que hayan salido todos los novios de Roe du [...]

#8 in the Aurora 'Roe' Teagarden series. This cliffhanger ending 2003 series entry is the last to date (Jan-2016), but there appears to be a #9 scheduled for Oct-2016. This entry deals with the murder of Roe's step-sister-in-law Poppy and has a lot of sleuthing by Roe and her other S-S-I-L, Miranda. Some deep, dark secrets are unearthed but the entry is not as dark as #6, A Fool and His Honey (1999). After returning to Lawrenceton , #7 Last Scene Alive (2002), writer Robin Crusoe who left town, [...]

Aurora’s step-sister-in-law Poppy is found dead in her own kitchen. Roe is trying to find out who could have done it. Her investigation uncovers multiple dark secrets in Poppy’s life.This book in my opinion is the best Aurora Teagarden mystery. The writing style is extremely close to the one in the first books in the series and it is very pleasant to get back to it. Mystery is captivating and keeps you guessing until the very end. Once again the book is filled with small town gossip and secr [...]

Review - I still love Aurora as a character, and her and Robin as a couple. In a lot of ways they make more sense together than Aurora and Martin did, but I can't imagine Aurora and Robin together as they were in the first book. The series would end brilliantly here, but there is room to carry on the story if Harris decides to. I don't know what her plans are in that direction. The description is as vivid as ever and the storyline is well-executed.Genre? - Crime / MysteryCharacters? - Aurora Tea [...]

I always expect a series to end with a bang or a nice little bow. No matter how they end I always feel like there should be more. I cant deny I’ll be curious as to what happens to Roe next – however, the idea that she would find yet another dead body or find herself in the middle of yet another murder mystery in the middle of this small southern town is quite preposterous. So – yes, it was nice run of a series but surely it had to end. I really liked getting to know Roe & see her chang [...]

Very much did not like this book. Everything was too obvious. Poppy was obviously killed by her neighbor to get in the club, why else mention it so early on? Roe was obviously pregnant, why else mention the womb thing again, and the physical aspects of her well being? And I just didn't get the whole thing with Phillip, I feel like she (the author) was setting something up there, but it just never came to fruition. Overall a very frustrating end to the series. Let down again by Charlaine Harris.

If all the books in this series were like this one, I'm very glad I happened to pick up the last one. This book was kind of stupid and the ending was so completely ridiculous and simple that I almost can't take it. Having read all the Sookie Stackhouse books and knowing what a great writer Harris can be, I'm kind of confused by how silly this book was. Although, considering how crappy the Sookie series ending was, I guess I'm not surprised.

I picked out the murderer as soon as s/he appeared on the page. Then I kept waiting for the character to be introduced againd waiting, and waiting. An author needs to drop a few more clues or it's a rigged game.Poppy herself, a man magnet with a buried past, was worth reading about, especially when man after respectable man owned up to loving her. But I'm glad that Charlaine Harris got better as she kept writing (so often it's the other way around.)

Just reread this whole series and I can safely say I really wanted aurora to be the one that died!Also doesn't anyone in this town show concern for STD's?! Forget the sanctity of marriage, how about simple health concerns?More of roe feeling sorry for herself, more of apparently every man in town wanting to sleep with her. Honestly her name should be Mary Sue, not aurora.Charlaine Harris needs to limit her series to 4 books at most IMO.

What an awful way to end a series!!! Problems that have been the main issue magically fix themselves, we are forced to care about the death of someone I frankly can't remember being of any importance before this book, and let's not open up how lukewarm her relationship with Robin was. Bland; boring as dry toast. This series could have been saved if things ended with Last Scene Alive but Harris instead choose to squeeze out one more formulaic book for a paycheque. Super disappointed.

Lots of stuff, really, that one has to willingly suspend disbelief over, but that tends to be the case with many a cosy mystery.Anyway, this last book in the Aurora Teagarden series was neither outstandingly good nor particularly bad - having already read the first seven, I went into it with certain expectations, and more or less got what I expected, so a solid three stars it is.

This is the last book in this series and, frankly, I'm glad it is finished. It is not the author's best work. I find the main character too sanctimonious. In this one, Roe discovers her stepsister-in-law murdered and her teenage brother shows up on her doorstep unannounced. Good riddance Aurora.
