Charlaine Harris is one of the best writers of regional cozies

In Lawrenceton, Georgia wealthy businessman Martin Bartell, the manager of the Pan Am Agra Plant, fell in love with Aurora ¿Roe¿ Teagarden from the moment they first met. Older and more sophisticated than her, they set a wedding date within weeks of their first meeting...
In Lawrenceton, Georgia wealthy businessman Martin Bartell, the manager of the Pan Am Agra Plant, fell in love with Aurora ¿Roe¿ Teagarden from the moment they first met. Older and more sophisticated than her, they set a wedding date within weeks of their first meeting. As a wedding present Martin gives his fiancée the deed to the Julius House.---------------- The house has a mysterious history because one night six years ago the family vanished without a reason or a trace leaving everything behind. When Roe finds something illegal that her new spouse is involved in, she tries to ignore her qualms by investigating what happened to the Julius family. Her inquiries almost kill her and it is only thanks to her tenant Angel that she survived the harrowing situation. When she finds the bodies of the family members, a new mystery surfaces that takes Roe and Angel into danger in New Orleans where people want them dead.------------------ Charlaine Harris is one of the best writers of regional cozies. Her amateur sleuth tales are filled with colorful characters, red herrings, plenty of suspects, and clues that ask more questions than they answer. The protagonist is a classical southern steel magnolia beautiful to look at with a strong metallic spine as she is not afraid to face danger and confront horrors even involving the man she loves.------ Harriet Klausner

Not the best

Is it just me or this specific book in the series was not as good as the other ones? Normally I wouldn't be able to put down a CH book, but I found myself forcing to finish the book. Odd.

I absolutely LOVED the first book in this series; it used real scenarios of murders and the characters were great. But I didn't find them developing much in this one. Something seems off about Aurora and her husband -- I don't know, I'm just hoping CH comes through with the rest of the series.

    Not great but not bad, either.

    The only book I really liked in this series is the first one. The rest of them are just okay, this one included. It's a quick, light read, though.

    Big Disappointment.. don't bother with this series!

    I have read several of the different series (and some of the short stories) by Ms. Harris, but this series is way too dull! The main character "Roe" has no personality and is about as deep emotionally as a drop of water and almost as exciting. I have read all the Sookie Stackhouse books to date, all the Harper Connely series and am working on the Lily Bard books now. I read books 1-4 of this series and decided against buying the rest, which is a first for me.

    Disappointing

    This is the third series I have read by Ms. Harris. I read the first four books of the series and stopped, which is a first for me. I kept waiting to feel some kind of connection to the characters, but I didn't. I loved True Blood books and the Harper Connelly series, but this one was boring!
