Overview

Poppy Done to Death (Aurora Teagarden Series #8) by Charlaine Harris

Eighth in Charlaine Harris’s acclaimed Aurora Teagarden mystery series—now in a new hardcover edition.

Not just any woman in Lawrenceton, Georgia, gets to be a member of the Uppity Women Book Club. But Roe’s stepsister-in-law Poppy has climbed her way up the waiting list of the group—only to die on the day she’s supposed to be inducted.

What makes Poppy’s murder even worse are rumors of infidelity on both sides of the marriage swirling around town. To find the killer, Roe must determine if the sordid stories are true. Suspects abound, and the things she uncovers make her question her own heart, but her passion for the truth drives her on—into the path of the cold-blooded killer.

Lawrenceton, Georgia librarian Aurora Teagarden is adjusting to widowhood just fine now that the worst of her grief is over. She is romantically involved with Robin Crusoe and is now a member of the Uppity Women, a prestigious group of females involved with literacy, and other social and political matters. It is by invitation only and Aurora is delighted that her stepsister-in-law Poppy is going to be inducted into the group.

She is positively mortified when Poppy doesn¿t show up to the meeting and rushes over to her home to lecture her, but instead finds her murdered body on the Kitchen floor. Poppy had many secrets and Aurora¿s family is trying to cope with the gossip and scandal. Roe is happy to find that her half brother Phillip is going to stay with her a while even though that puts more stress on her. While his presence takes her mind off the tragedy temporarily, she is pulled into the murder investigation by circumstances beyond her control and almost gets killed in the process.

Charlaine Harris has taken her heroine in a completely different direction and readers will be happy to see the protagonist find the double dose of happiness she so richly deserves. There is a lot of action in this delightful cozy, and not all of it is directed at solving the homicide. Roe gets a chance to become reacquainted with the brother she was forbidden to see for some time and helps her in-laws and her mother cope with a loved one¿s death. POPPY DONE TO DEATH is a terrific cozy, one readers will want to put on their keeper shelves.

If you are a lover of Aurora then you will truly love how this ends. The story is a grabber all the way through. I wish that there were more in the series...

Having now read all of the Charlaine Harris's books I can only say "Thank you Charlaine !!" The stressful non-fiction world of everyday life seems to fade away when immersed in Roe Teagrden's world. All the elements are there - characters, murder,suspense, love - fun! I will admit it took me the first two Roe books to get hooked but I love her character. I heartedly recommend the Roe Teagarden series!

Great story. So glad Aurora is finding love again. Wonderful characters abound in this story. Ms. Harris creates such imaginative stories in all of her books. "True Blood", southern vampire series, with Sookie Stackhouse is another one of Ms. Harris's great series and I highly recommend the books to any age group. The one thing I object to is HBO has taken a nice, decent storyline and sexed it up with soft-porn and characters unlike the ones in the books.

I've enjoyed this whole series, but this one is my favorite, so far.

This is the first Aurora Teagarden book and it is book #8 in the series. I didn't feel confused by not reading the other books. After seeing that the Hallmark Mystery Channel has several Aurora Teagarden movies, I was curious enough about Aurora to finally grab a book that was on sale. I enjoyed this easy reading book with characters whose other adventures I am adding to my TBR lists.

If this book were a person, she would be an airhead. The plot is pretty transparent, but is entertaining enough to keep you interested if you don't want or need to be seriously engaged.
