Requested this book through PaperBackSwap.com on behalf of NeedSun who's collecting the series (but can't participate in PBS since she's in Canada). :(

Book Description
Sleepness nights, a cross-country chase and a temporary stint at motherhood turn Aurora Teagarden's life upside down. When her husband's niece Regina shows up unannounced on their doorstep with a baby and a secret, Aurora's perpetual curiosity leaps into overdrive—especially when the body of the girl's husband is found ax murdered in her own backyard.

Regina flees the scene, and Aurora is left holding the baby, struggling with the intricacies of bottles, diapers—and a mystery. What was Regina running from? Why was her husband murdered? The answers are hidden back in Ohio, and that's just where Aurora goes, husband, baby and all. But Regina's secrets are very dangerous and Aurora walks right into them—much to her own peril.

This is the sixth installment in Charlaine Harris's now defunct Aurora Teagarden mystery series, which go up to book number 8. In A Fool and His Honey, we meet a few new members of Roe's husband Martin's family, including Martin's niece Regina who has shown up on their doorstep with a new baby in tow, not even a month old yet.

Unfortunately, when Regina's new husband Craig turns up dead on the doorsteps leading to the garage apartment, and Regina suddenly goes missing, leaving baby Hayden behind, Roe and Martin need to head up to Regina's hometown in rural Ohio to find answers, and return the baby to... someone... anyone!

For some reason, this particular installment in the Aurora Teagarden mysteries seemed a bit more shallow than the previous ones, though it's hard to put my finger on exactly what was missing. By the end, I was left feeling a little bit empty, and I wonder if maybe that was done on purpose. You've got Roe's whole back story about how she can't conceive children, the fact that Martin was previously married and has an older son who doesn't really acknowledge Roe as his father's new wife and didn't even bother to attend their wedding, and then an even more jaw dropping surprise at the very end.

Overall, a quick and interesting read and definitely a pivotal point in the series. I believe many of the events that happened herein will be fairly significant for the last two books of the series.

This is now reserved for NeedSun, and will be included with the next package of books I sent to her.

Well, this book was really hard to rate. I found Aurora really whinny and not nearly as strong as in the previous books. She became quite annoying to me by the end... however....the end was quite a shock and that makes me want to rate it a bit higher. I love being surprised!

Winging off to Wyvernfriend.

Interesting and complicated and I enjoyed the read.

A quick read that I enjoyed. Roe has a tough time in this one, and again I enjoyed the fact that all the characters ( not just the villans) have faults and foibles..Just awaiting next partipants address before getting this moving. Apols for the delay x
