In Charlaine Harris's A Bone to Pick, the 2nd installment in the Aurora Teagarden cozy mystery series, she had given us a chilling cozy with this small town mystery. For Roe, it all started with her mother's remarriage and the funeral of Jane Engle, a close friend of Aurora's. First it began with the windfall that landed on her doorstep when she inherited her home and a load of money. And then she discovered a skull buried in Jane's old home. For this small town librarian, she had gotten to know Jane's neighbors and deliberated on staying or listing this home in this creepy neighborhood. While she discovered new feelings for love with the local minister Aubrey Scott, she had became the central focus when the skeleton was found down the road and learned that one of her neighbors had committed a crime or two in the past, when she had an unwanted visit at her own home.
This was another charming small town cozy mystery. I continued to care about Roe and how she dealt with her newfound wealth and her own security and feeling for Aubrey. I continued to love the small town location for this series. I thought some of her neighbors were a bit off. This cozy would give you a thrilling mystery with every page with drama, non-stop action, intrigue and a hint of romance.
