Title: A Bone to Pick
Series: Aurora Teagarden #2
Author: Charlaine Harris
Genre: Cosy Mystery
Synopsis: Aurora “Roe” Teagarden’s fortunes change when a deceased acquaintance names her as heir to a rather substantial estate, including money, jewelry, and a house complete with a skull hidden in a window seat. Roe concludes that the elderly women has purposely left her a murder to solve. So she must identify the victim and figure out which one of her new, ordinary-seeming neighbors is a murderer-without putting herself in deadly danger.
“Somewhere, somewhere in this house, lurked a problem. For some reason, Jane’s legacy wasn’t entirely benevolent.”
My Rating: ★★★★☆

This one is a little bit funny… Pretty much everything changes for Roe at the beginning of the book which makes all the developments of the first book obsolete. It’s almost like a new first book in a series.
As for the mystery, Roe doesn’t actually do much investigating but her character is strengthened which I think will make for better subsequent books in the series.

I was completely against Audible for so long. I thought it was overpriced considering I pay the same for Scribd and can listen to however many audiobooks I want (kind of) as well as ebooks. But of course with Scribd I don’t actually own the books and they may not have the book I want.… Read more
Ooh…thank you! Will do!
I recommend checking out that series and the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews.
I love fantasy books, but urban fantasy just sounds so….different. I love different.
I adore that miniseries!! I love rewatching it on Netflix when I can’t find anything new to watch.
Thank you so much! I would normally read about 5 or 6 books in a month so this was a…
