About this book:
Charlaine Harris returns to her Aurora Teagarden series with book 9, All The Little Lairs. This was my first Teagarden book and within the first 10 pages all I kept thinking was why I hadn’t put this higher up in my To Be Read pile?
I loved Aurora the minute I met her. I love Harris’ love for public libraries.
In All The Little Liars, Harris has woven a page-turning mystery set in a small town that is growing to a large suburb adjacent to Atlanta. Everybody knows everybody which is both quaint and aggravating. To top it off Aurora and her famous novelist husband, Robin Crusoe, are just getting adjusted to married life and the pregnancy they have kept hidden from friends and family. And because family traumas never have good timing, Aurora’s half brother, Philip, is now living with the newlyweds as he couldn’t deal with the separation of his parents. Everything seems new for Roe (Aurora) who is constantly thinking of this new life growing within her that is already making its presence known with morning sickness and exhaustion. All in all it seems like it is going to be a nice homey Christmas. That is until Philip and three other teenagers go missing.
Life immediate turns surreal, but Aurora and Robin can’t sit at home doing nothing. And we are happier readers because they don’t.
Calling All The Little Liars a page-turner doesn’t do it justice. I found myself with that avid reader problem: do I put down the book and get some sleep or stay up all night and have fun reading it until the end? For several days I only allotted myself 10 pages a day as I tried to extend my reading pleasure. But I got to the point where I couldn’t put down. I had to know. Much to my husband’s disappointment I gave in and read all night. I loved every single page all the way to the end. And I was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise as I hugged the book and sad good-bye to Aurora — for now. I’m hooked on this series and the first eight books will be on reserve at my library today. Don’t miss out on this lovely read that feels like you have reconnected with a long lost friend and the two of you haven’t missed a beat in your friendship.
