Another Meander with Aurora

In this installment we jump over the possible double lover dilemma that ended the first book and go straight into the aftermath of both a failed relationship and the death of a friend. It is another slow meandering stroll through Roe's life and it is mostly pleasant, witty, and humorous enough. The biggest problem with this story is that, even more so than in the first, the solution to the mystery is revealed rather than solved. The action at the end seems more than a little implausible as well. Moreover, we discover at the end that if Roe had been a little more methodical and a little less clever in the beginning, there would have been no mystery for her to solve--or attempt to solve, rather.

The narrator does a generally good job, but she does not use a Southern accent and her nasally voice doesn't hint of the South.

Still, this is a mildly enjoyable pleasant stroll through Aurora Teagarden's evolving life and worth the few hours of listening.

Team Teagarden All the Way!!!

Where does Bone to Pick rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Bone to Pick ranks pretty high among the audiobooks I have consumed. It kept my attention start to finish.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, it was engaging, funny, and an enjoyable read (listen).


Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

All of them. Some books really don't transfer well to audio, mainly because the characters are not distinctive enough for you to recognize them based on their actions/attitudes/tone. But Ms. Harris defined distinct characters who stand out alone.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was, and yes I did.
