For writing about small town America and you have yourself a very fun series Now on to book 5 This series is seriously iving me hives and an eye twitch I hate it with a mad weasel passionThe Julius House is slooooow It took Charlaine until page 106 to remember she was supposed to be writing a mystery series Until then it s just Aurora adjusting to her married life In fact the first 30 40 pages are simply about Aurora buying a wedding qasas-ul-quran gift for Martin She buys his childhood farm under false pretenses and the only reason Martin apparently wanted the farm was to keep his step dad from living there And the only reason the step dad wanted to keep living there was to keep Martin and his sister from living there Petty Martin now has his family farm and it is not mentioned again What in the hell is he planning on doing with it No one knows nor cares Martin s secrets really aren t that interesting nor was I surprised He s already shown in the previous book that he s manipulative and kinda skeezy But the insipid Aurora LOVES him as she reminds us constantly in the first 30 pages She tells the reader on nearly every page that she misses him and misses him and she misses him And she LOVES him so much And the sex isood And she misses him I was nauseated for the first half of the novel I rinded my teeth together when she searched for his ex wife just to see what she looked like also under false pretensesI truly did not care where the Julius family went At least if they had been beamed up on a spaceship it would have been believable and engaging Also why do the bad uys always confess when Aurora shows up In the second novel the bad Dead-End Road Mysteries guy is confessing while Aurora is helping deliver a baby Lame One clueives this mystery away like a Hear the Wolves giant blinking sign After that there is absolutely no reason to read the rest of the bookI was near page 200 before the ax wielding maniac shows up By that point I was so bored and put out with the protagonist I was cheering for the ax wielding maniac OFF WITH HER HEAD GET HER GET HER Sadly I was disappointed Since I already have aood froth of indignation built up what s up with her word choices I can t find the page number now and don t really desire to search for itbut she describes a truck as lurid Lurid means shocking and Valors Measure gruesome I skimmed back through the previous page or so to try to find any indication that something had happened in the truck that I missed because I tuned outto find no other references to the truck Did I just misread the word Nope There it was in black and white Lurid truck Charlaine honey did your editor justive up at that pointMy friend loaned me one book in the series Dead Over Heels Although I am stubborn and usually complete a series once I start it I think I m BFI Film Classics going to return them now I feel I ve suffered enough The Julius House opens with big changes in Aurora s life Whatever Harris was trying to doet us used to the changes or Tni Tata Dunia Baru Sistem Pertahanan go in a different direction the first portion of the book was incredibly dull to me I was even wondering if I wanted to continue reading the series especially since I didn t much care for Aurora s attitude Once weot past the initial chapters the action picked up and the last portion of the book was uite exciting A couple of new characters were introduced I really hope Angel sticks around She makes a وصف الاستعباد في مملكة فاس - مذكرات أسير سويدي على عهد السلطان مولاي عبد الله great sidekick for Aurora I was temping for a company that basically only needed someone to babysit the front desk While sitting there I saw this book at the receptionist s desk I like this book because it s a pop corn a uick read I loved the writing and the uirky characters The mystery wasn t really the main focus and normally I hate picking up a book in the middle of a series but I found that it was enjoyable It made me laugh and I think I ll pick up the other Teagarden novels to munch on for a short trip to the beach It is fortunate I didn t uit this series after reading the first book I amlad I carried on because they seem to Fiend get better This chapter in the life of Aurora Teagarden is both fun and exciting There is action than I remember from past books Some readers might be put off by the detailsiven to how Roe dresses but it adds to the charm for me The audio is very ood and I am enjoying that. Ovating the Julius house her misgivings about Martin's rather murky past recede But when Roe is attacked by an axe wielding maniac she realises that the secrets inside her four walls and her brand new marriage could destroy
