The Julius House (Aurora Teagarden Series #4) by Charlaine Harris

Author of the books that inspired True Blood on HBO and Midnight, Texas on NBC

Aurora Teagarden is happily preparing for her wedding to dashing business executive Martin Bartell. As a wedding gift, Martin buys her the house of her dreams: the “Julius house,” infamously named after the family who vanished from the house without a trace six years ago. As Roe sets about renovating and decorating her new home, she’s never felt happier.

Then Martin suddenly rents the small apartment on their new property to an old army buddy and his wife, who seem to be more bodyguard than tenant, and Roe is sure her husband-to-be is keeping secrets. To take her mind off her suspicions, she opens her own unofficial investigation into the Julius family cold case. But when an axe-wielding stranger attacks her, Roe must determine whether it’s her husband’s secrets, the mystery of the Julius family’s fates, or both, that have put her own life on the chopping block.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris has once again brought Southern charm and an engaging mystery in this latest Aurora Teagarden installment. Real Murders, A Bone To Pick, Three Bedrooms, One Corpse, and the rest of the Aurora Teagarden series has been adapted into film for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

I am a cozy mystery reader and I am enjoying this series! They are quick paced and written well...I read this book in 2days. I am now going onto the rest of the series!

This book was my favorite with the plot that left me wanting more. "Roe" is such an intriguing character and her exploits with the dead are almost funny! A must read!

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.

Roe Teagarden is getting married. Her husband to be is buying her a house that no one seems to want. Because a family disappeared while living there. As usual she winds up in the middle of the mystery. Easy reading, interesting cgharacters. Now I'll have to read the rest of this series. I also reccomend her Shakespeare series, Harper Connelly, and Sookie Stackhouse(vampires and psychics).

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

Aurora "Roe" Teagarden has received a most unusual but welcome wedding present from her fiancé, Martin Bartell. He has given her "the Julius House", a local house that's been shrouded in mystery for the last 6 years since it's previous occupants went missing. Roe has always been drawn to the house, as well as the circumstances surrounding the unexpected and sudden disappearance of its previous inhabitants. But when she starts sleuthing, can she handle the things she discovers?It took me a little while to reacquaint myself with a few of the characters in this series. I didn't really recall Martin all that well, though I did remember her previous two boyfriends, Arthur the cop and Aubrey the minister. So either Martin came into the picture late in book 3, and I haven't yet read enough about him, or else he simply didn't make much of an impression on me. Nevertheless, that was the only character I didn't remember. And I quickly warmed to the familiarity of Roe and her family and friends from the small town of Lawrenceton, GA. This book and the next, Dead Over Heels were fairly difficult to find so I purchased them from eBay for a fair price and plan to give them to NeedSun. I'd actually planned to do that after I bought them last year, but she insisted I read the series first since I had been acquiring the majority of the early books for her. And I'm certainly glad I did. These are cute little cozies, not as dark as the Shakespeare series, but Charlaine's terrific writing style comes through just as easily in these earlier books, making them a joy to read. :-)

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.
