Aurora's been around long enough to know that when a day starts out with your handyman going crazy in your front yard, it probably won't get any better. Sure enough, when her husband's niece shows up unexpectedly, drops off a baby, and disappears, Aurora is overwhelmed. And then the niece's husband turns up dead, having met his demise at the end of an ax blade. To find her niece, Roe and Martin retrace her steps from sunny Georgia back to snowy Ohio, where they will uncover dark family secrets - at their own peril.
"Gossipy, blithe, often funnywith a wind-up thats fierce, shocking, and poignant. A winner for Harris this time out." ( Kirkus Reviews)

I've enjoyed all the books in this series so far. Unfortunately, I read "Chad's" review and one of the major plot twists is revealed. Skip that review, if having part of the ending revealed is not your cup of 'Tea' (pun intended)! Otherwise, I enjoyed this book as much as the others in the series.

If you LOVE Sookie, you'll love Aurora...
Would you consider the audio edition of A Fool and His Honey to be better than the print version?
I have never read the actual books... But I have listened to all the books in this series..
What was one of the most memorable moments of A Fool and His Honey?
I couldn't pick just one. I think the stories, in all of this series are delightful. I fell in love with Aurora and she is very reminiscent of Sookie Stackhouse. It's like reading a Sookie novel without the supernatural aspect.
What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?
I thought she did very well with the characters and I appreciate that Charlaine Harris knows how important it is to stick with the same narrator, if they are good. She was good. She had the characters down, and gave them the perfect southern touch they needed.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Aurora Teagarden, Unluckiest Girl EVER! OrSookie....Off Steroids... :) or Aurora Teagarden... Amateur detective, who's actually better than the real police... Or....Poor Aurora! Won't people stop dying around her? lolI don't know... But those all represent her character... :D
Any additional comments?
I know this series is over (for many years) as well as the Southern Vampire Mysteries... But I want MORE...MORE AND MORE! Charlaine Harris really could add to Aurora's life...kind of pick up where she left off in the last book. I'd love to read them. I'd love to see her brought back to life... :DCharlaine Harris has a way of writing that makes you feel good inside, like comfort food. There aren't many writers that can make me feel like that. It's like putting on a favorite pair of slippers. Her stories just make me feel comfortable, safe and warm and able to actually relax for a while. I think she writes in a way that makes people feel like they can identify with the characters. I really do love her style of writing.I DO wish she would NOT have written the Sookie Stackhouse companion. I just couldn't sit through it and actually returned it... :( maybe I would have liked it better in hardcover. And the last book I purchased was just a very short book that let's you know what happened to everyone in Sookieville...I didn't care for it. It was only about 45 minutes long and made me feel like the writer was just squeezing out every penny she could get out of the Sookie Stachouse character. I don't know, I felt like she should have just left it alone...and not published both books...it would have been nice to see them on a blog or her website, you know, a thank you for the fans type of gesture, but she didn't do that, she made more money off them and for some reason, that just didn't sit right with me. I feel crappy saying that about one of my favorite authors, but it's just how I felt when I was listening to them. Sorry... I really DO hate saying anything negative about Charlaine Harris because she is a GREAT talent. One of the best writers, ever...in my opinion.
