Publisher's Summary

New York Times best seller Charlaine Harris returns to her Aurora Teagarden mystery series with a fabulous new book featuring the small-town Southern librarian.
Aurora Teagarden is basking in the news of her pregnancy when disaster strikes her small Georgia town: four kids vanish from the school soccer field in an afternoon. Aurora's 15-year-old brother, Phillip, is one of them. Also gone are two of his friends and an 11-year-old girl who was just hoping to get a ride home from soccer practice. And then there's an even worse discovery - at the kids' last known destination, a dead body.
While the local police and sheriff's department comb the county for the missing kids and interview everyone even remotely involved, Aurora and her new husband, true-crime writer Robin Crusoe, begin their own investigation. Could the death and kidnappings have anything to do with a group of bullies at the middle school? Is Phillip's disappearance related to Aurora's father's gambling debts? Or is Phillip himself, new to town and an unknown quantity, responsible for taking the other children?
But regardless of the reason, as the days go by, the most important questions remain. Are the kids still alive? Who could be concealing them? Where could they be? With Christmas approaching, Aurora is determined to find her brother - if he's still alive.

Welcome back, Aurora!

I really enjoyed this series so I was pleased to discover that Charlaine Harris has decided to give us more of Aurora. We get to catch up on her life as well as friends and family. It is the usual cozy mystery where Aurora figures out what is really going on while the police don't have a clue. As she anticipates the birth of her baby, I am anticipating the next entry into the series, because we were left with many questions that need solving.

And, for those of you who are reading this because you have seen the series on TV, please start from the beginning of the series. It really does make a difference. You will also discover how much better the books are. The TV series sucks.

Another Harris Success

I have read all the Aurora Teagarden books and loved them. This latest is as good as the first. The main character is lovable and fun. The reader captured Aurora perfectly. Anyone wanting a light and funny listen can't go wrong with any of the Teagarden books.
