Title: A Bone to Pick
Series: Aurora Teagarden #2
Author: Charlaine Harris
Genre: Cosy Mystery
Synopsis: Aurora “Roe” Teagarden’s fortunes change when a deceased acquaintance names her as heir to a rather substantial estate, including money, jewelry, and a house complete with a skull hidden in a window seat. Roe concludes that the elderly women has purposely left her a murder to solve. So she must identify the victim and figure out which one of her new, ordinary-seeming neighbors is a murderer-without putting herself in deadly danger.
“Somewhere, somewhere in this house, lurked a problem. For some reason, Jane’s legacy wasn’t entirely benevolent.”
My Rating: ★★★★☆

This one is a little bit funny… Pretty much everything changes for Roe at the beginning of the book which makes all the developments of the first book obsolete. It’s almost like a new first book in a series.
As for the mystery, Roe doesn’t actually do much investigating but her character is strengthened which I think will make for better subsequent books in the series.

Happy Friday! This weekend I’m reading The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix. I’m also still listening to The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires so I have two Grady Hendrix books on the go at the moment. This guy has got a bit of a thing for convoluted titles. My Best Friend’s… Read more
