Charlaine Harris has charmed audiences recently with her noirish cozy series starring Lily Bard. Now she returns to her cozy roots with her first Aurora—Roe—Teagarden mystery since Dead Over Heels. Roe and her new and considerably older husband Martin are settled into their new life quite nicely when everything changes with the arrival of Martin's niece Regina. The flighty Regina lands on their doorstep with a baby no one knew she was expecting, then disappears a few hours later leaving both the baby and her husband's brutally murdered corpse in her wake. Roe and Martin must try to answer all the questions in this sticky case: whodunnit, why, and where (as in, Where the heck did this baby come from?). Fans of Roe's earlier exploits and of Lily Bard will be delighted by Harris' reprisal of the Teagarden series.

"There are many small details that quietly ring true while adding humor and humanity to the narrative."--The Mystery Reader "Readers who like mysteries starring strong, witty, southern women will like this one, too, but they had better be prepared for a surprise."--Booklist "Live-wire action, small-town antics, unexpected plot ramifications, and a humorous tone make for fine reading."--Library Journal "Gossipy, blithe, often funny with a windup that's fierce, shocking, and poignant. A winner."--Kirkus Reviews "Harris mixes elements of a cozy and her darker themes with skill and panache."--Publishers Weekly
