"Fast-paced, well plotted, and exciting"
It has been over a year since Aurora "Roe" Teagarden's
husband has been murdered but the Lawrenceton, Georgia
librarian is still in deep mourning. She is not at all
happy that a Hollywood crew is coming to town to shoot the
scenes from "Whimsical Death" based on the first homicide
Roe ever solved. Also coming to town is Robin Crusoe,
Roe's ex-boyfriend, and the person who helped her solve the
case but subsequently went on to write the book on their
investigation that has led to the movie.
Roe is also unhappy that her stepson Barrett is starring in
the movie because they despise each other. When Robin hits
town, old sparks ignite and Roe begins to realize that the
movie filming might be a blessing in disguise. What Roe
doesn't know is that there is a murderer amongst the
Hollywood set. This person plans to kill the movie's star
and target Roe as his next victim.
Fans of the Aurora Teagarden series will like the way the
heroine displays her grief while moving on with her life.
Readers will delight with the appearance of a new man in
Roe's life, one that is different than her deceased
husband. It is very easy to see why Robin and Roe click.
The story line is fast-paced, well plotted, and exciting
with enough twists and turns to keep readers on full alert.
