This is a review of the novel “A Bone To Pick”, the 2nd novel in Charlaine Harris’ Aurora Teagarden Series. It follows on from “Real Murders“.
Aurora has not had a great couple of weeks, unmarried herself, she must attend the wedding of her mother (her second wedding) and of her ex-lover Arthur and his new girlfriend Lynn. To Aurora’s utter dismay, Lynn is also visibly pregnant. To top things off, Aurora must next attend a funeral of a friend and fellow member of the now disbanded club Real Murders, Jane Engle.
Completely to Aurora’s surprise, Jane has left everything to her. Her sizable bank account and her house. This house however, comes with a rather unpleasant surprise. Aurora quickly realises that Jane has left her with another mystery to solve. And it’s not just any old mystery. It’s a murder mystery.
And to make matters worse, Aurora suspects that the culprit may very well be any one of her new neighbours of her newly acquired house.
Entertaining and quite true-to-life, the second book in the Aurora Teagarden Series is just as good as the first.
