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.
