OrangeReviewStarAurora Teagarden is on top of the world. Newly married to crime writer Robin Crusoe, she is pregnant with their first baby, happily working in her hometown library and excited to spend the holidays with her family, including her 15-year-old half brother Phillip, who hitchhiked across the country to live with her. The week before Christmas, however, Phillip and his friends go missing while on an innocent car ride. The situation turns dire when one of the teens is found dead and their car abandoned. Never one for sitting on the sidelines, Roe chases as many avenues as she can think of (while fighting morning sickness) to find her brother.
VERDICT Harris's last Aurora Teagarden novel, Poppy Done to Death, was released over a decade ago; this ninth book jumps right back in to the story with ease. Fans can only hope that with the popularity of the Hallmark movies featuring Teagarden (currently there are two, corresponding to Books 1 and 2), Harris will continue to add to the series.
