Freshly married and overcome with joy over finding she’s expecting Aurora “Roe” Teagarden has everything falling into place in her life at the moment. That is until four teens go missing, one of which is Roe’s own half brother who had been living with her and her husband.
With everyone becoming frantic when the kids aren’t anywhere to be found the police are quickly called in but unfortunately things only get worse when a dead body is found. While the police are conducting their investigation Roe and her new husband begin their own investigation to help try to find the missing teens.
All the Little Liars is the ninth book in the Aurora Teagarden series by Charlaine Harris but the first of the series which I’ve read myself. I have seen a couple of the movies based on the books though so I was somewhat familiar with the characters and setting involved in this series before starting this one but it still seemed to read alright without the others. Having read the Sookie Stackhouse series I knew I would probably love these books so no better time to try than when I saw this up for review.
Aurora Teagarden is such a likable character, a down to earth small town librarian that can’t help but want to help others when things go wrong. The setting is one in which everyone knows everyone so it’s easy for the main character to go snoopy in her investigations and ask around digging for details in the small town. I spent the entire read with the question of what could possibly of happened to these kids and really enjoyed the journey to finding out along with the ending to the story.
Overall, a great cozy mystery, enjoyable even not having read the others in the series but being a fan of Charlaine Harris already I really should go back and read the others!
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
