      Summary: Robin and Aurora's newborn Sophie is proving to be quite a handful. They hire a partially trained nurse, Virginia Mitchell, to come and help the new parents for a few weeks when Robin has to leave town for work and Roe is struck with a bad case of the flu. One particularly stormy night, Roe wakes to hear her daughter crying and Virginia nowhere to be found. Searching for her reveals a body outside . . . but it isn't Virginia's. Now, not only does Roe have a baby to care for but a new puzzle to contend with - who is this mystery woman dead in their backyard, and what happened to Virginia?

Booklist Reviews 2017 August #1

The latest in Harris' popular Aurora Teagarden series finds her settling into the role of a nursing mom, happily changing, feeding, and burping "the most beautiful baby in the world." Don't be lulled. This is Charlaine Harris, who is the equal of the legendary Shirley Jackson in conveying the sinister lurking beneath the everyday. Slyly, quietly, she keeps the suspense building, dropping details into scenes that appear about as dull as dishwater. A noise in the next room, a soft knock on the door. The flowers that arrive anonymously. Then come the discovery of the body in the backyard and Aurora's missing babysitter. A neighbor swears he saw Aurora's husband at the murder scene. Couldn't be, could it? He was out of town, wasn't he? The tense, edgy undercurrents persist as Aurora goes through the prose of her life: a visit to her ailing stepfather, a clash with the fussbudgets next door. Finally, we witness the violence Harris has been preparing us for all along, and we learn what 4-foot-11, ex-librarian Aurora is capable of doing when the need arises.

In her tenth outing (after All the Little Liars), Aurora Teagarden is tending her newborn but is laid low by the flu while her husband is at a conference. At the same time, her nurse disappears and a body is found in her backyard. There may be too many details of family life for some, but this entry is certain to be a hit with fans of the series and the Hallmark TV show featuring the protagonist.

In Agatha-finalist Harris's engrossing 10th Aurora Teagarden novel (after 2016's All the Little Liars), the Lawrenceton, Ga., librarian and first-time mother comes down with the flu just as her mystery writer husband, Robin Crusoe, is about to leave town for an important writers' conference. Aurora is relieved when home aide Virginia Mitchell agrees to help with the baby, Sophie, while Robin is away. When Aurora is awakened in the middle of the night by Sophie's wails, she discovers that Virginia has disappeared—and there's a body in the back yard. The dead woman turns out to be Tracy Beal, who once stalked Robin and tried to murder Aurora. Did Virginia kill her, or did a neighbor really see Robin lurking about the back yard around the time that Tracy died? Harris smoothly weaves together several seemingly unrelated threads to create a richly layered tale of how the bad choices people make in life can come back to haunt them. 100,000-copy announced first printing; author tour. Agent: Joshua Bilmes, JABberwocky Literary. (Sept.)
