After attending three weddings in less than a year, including her ex-boyfriend's, Aurora Teagarden feels stuck in a rut. Then Jane Engle, an elderly member of the recently disbanded Real Murders club, dies and unexpectedly leaves her house and considerable estate to Roe But Roe soon realizes that her inheritance includes a tangled mystery in need of unravelling. Her new home comes with a surprise: a human skull concealed inside a window seat. Was Jane a killer? Hoping to put her fears to rest, Roe hides the skull and secretly begins investigating the most likely suspects, her new neighbors. Sleuthing is easier said than done while dodging questions from both her new love interest and her discerning police detective ex. But there's an unsolved murder, and Roe's determined to identify both the victim and the murderer before it happens again. With a plucky, charming main character, the clever second installment of the Aurora Teagarden mystery series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris is a delightful mystery that will keep readers guessing to the end. Real Murders, A Bone to Pick, Three Bedrooms, One Corpse and the rest of the Aurora Teagarden mysteries have been adapted into film for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was so fun and light that it broke my January reading slump. Who knew an inherited house would come with a riddle, neighbours, and new life changes. This is the second in the Aurora Teagarden series.

I did enjoy this book very much. Roe inherits a house and finds a skull hidden there. Now she doesn't know what to do with it. Of course Roe being Roe, she decides to hold it until she can find out who the skull belongs to. This book held my interest and had me wondering right up to the end. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Big changes for Aurora Teagarden after she inherits a house and a fortune from another member of the now defunct Real Murders club. Now that she's independently wealthy and Arthur (her boyfriend from Real Murders) has married someone else, what's in store for Roe? A new career? A new beau? New murders to investigate? All of the above? I'll give you one guess. This series of mysteries is quick, light-weight and fun.

I really enjoyed this book! I like where it takes Roe and how it changes her. If you liked the first one, you'll probably like this one too!

This was another entertaining Aurora Teagarden novel. The mystery was very engrossing and kept me guessing with a lot of false leads. I was disappointed that Roe's relationship and end of her relationship with Arthur Smith happened off the page between Real Murders and A Bone to Pick. I would have enjoyed reading about their relationship.
