A Bone to Pick
By Charlaine Harris
Book two in a world-famous storyteller Charlaine Harris's murder mystery series featuring a librarian who is a keen amateur sleuth
'A heroine as capable and potentially complex as P. D. James's Cordelia Gray' (Publishers Weekly)
Death comes calling on small-town librarian Aurora Teagarden in this entertaining mystery from #1 New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris.
Going to two weddings - one of a former lover - and a funeral for a member of her disbanded crime study club keeps Aurora "Roe" Teagarden quite busy for a few months. Unfortunately, her personal life seems to be at a standstill - until her fortunes unexpectedly change.
After the funeral Roe learns that Jane Engle, the deceased, has named her as heir to a rather substantial estate, which includes money, jewelry, and a house complete with a skull hidden in a window seat. Knowing Jane, Roe concludes that the elderly woman has purposely left her a murder to solve. So she must identify the victim and figure out which one of Jane's ordinary-seeming neighbors is a murderer - without putting herself in deadly danger . . .
