The Julius House (Aurora Teagarden Series #4) by
Charlaine Harris PDF
Love at first sight turns into newlywed bliss for
former librarian Aurora Teagarden until violence cuts
the honeymoon short.
Wealthy businessman Martin Bartell gives Roe exactly
what she wants for their wedding: Julius House. But
both the house and Martin come with murky pasts. And
when Roe is attacked by an ax-wielding maniac, she
realizes that the secrets inside her four wallsand her
brand-new marriagecould destroy her.
In her seventh cozy outing, librarian Aurora "Roe"
Teagarden is back to form after the downbeat A Fool and
His Honey (1999). Roe and her once-significant other,
true-crime writer Robin Crusoe, team up to untangle the
results of their first foray into detection, Real
Murders (1990), in which they caught the killer who''d
been terrorizing the sleepy town of Lawrenceton, Ga.
Now Robin has capitalized on the experience to write a
bestselling novel, which is being made into a TV movie.
Of course, it will be shot in Lawrenceton, and the
whole town is delighted and eager to be involved,
except for Roe. Oh, she''s glad to see Robin again after
his years in Hollywood, but she''s not pleased that the
star of the film is Emmy winner Celia Shaw, her
successor in Robin''s affection, now also cast off. When
Roe''s unfriendly stepson, Barrett, turns up with a part
in the film, she hardens her heart until the second
morning of the shoot, when Barrett knocks on Celia''s
trailer door (after having spent the night there) to
find Celia dead, her bloody Emmy beside her. Now Roe
feels sorry for Barrett. The first investigator on the
scene is another old flame, Detective Arthur Smith.
Then Roe herself is threatened first by a venomous
letter, later by a Robin Crusoe fan who tries to kill
her. Harris''s style is well suited to the material,
frothy and fast-paced with a wealth of witty
descriptions: "Her voice was as crisp as if it''d been
in the vegetable drawer overnight." Take a well-earned
rest, Roe, don''t lose Robin and return soon.
