by Charlaine Harris

Series: Aurora Teagarden #9

Genre: Mystery

Publication date: October 4, 2016

Synopsis: Aurora Teagarden is basking in the news of her pregnancy when disaster strikes her small Georgia town: four kids vanish from the school soccer field in an afternoon. Aurora’s 15-year-old brother Phillip is one of them. Also gone are two of his friends, and an 11-year-old girl who was just hoping to get a ride home from soccer practice. And then there’s an even worse discovery—at the kids’ last known destination, a dead body.

While the local police and sheriff’s department comb the county for the missing kids and interview everyone even remotely involved, Aurora and her new husband, true crime writer Robin Crusoe, begin their own investigation. Could the death and kidnappings have anything to do with a group of bullies at the middle school? Is Phillip’s disappearance related to Aurora’s father’s gambling debts? Or is Phillip himself, new to town and an unknown quantity, responsible for taking the other children? But regardless of the reason, as the days go by, the most important questions remain. Are the kids still alive? Who could be concealing them? Where could they be?

With Christmas approaching, Aurora is determined to find her brother…if he’s still alive.

After more than a decade, #1 New York Times bestseller Charlaine Harris finally returns to her fan-favorite Aurora Teagarden series with All the Little Liars, a fabulously fun new mystery.

The reasons this book appeals to me:
  • I read a number of Charlaine Harris’ mysteries before she wrote her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series. I liked them a lot so I’m really excited to have a new book in the Aurora Teagarden series.
  • This gives me a lot of impetus to go back and re-read the earlier books since I don’t remember a lot of what happened in the series.
  • The mystery and story sound great!

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. I have this one and I’m so excited about it! I love the Aurora Teagarden and this newest one sounds really good. I’d love to go back and reread the earlier books but I doubt they’ll be time. I do want to try though. Have you seen any of the Hallmark movies? They’re not nearly as good as the books but they’re still pretty fun.

    1. I decided not to request the book since I wanted to read some of these earlier books before reading this one…since I can’t really remember much about the books! I didn’t know there were Hallmark movies, Katherine. I’ll have to search for them after I reread the books.

      I’ll look forward to reading how you like this new book. I hope this book means Ms. Harris is going to write more mysteries.
