A Fool and his Honey (#6)

Previous: Dead Over Heels | Next: Last Scene Alive

Though Roe has proven she can handle just about anything, this part-time librarian may not be ready for the full-time crises that comes her way in the sixth Aurora Teagarden mystery…

Roe’s life finally seems to have settled into a comfortable pattern. Her marriage to Martin is going well, she’s back at work at the Lawrenceton library—and she hasn’t found a dead body in quite a while. But then one afternoon her handyman goes crazy in her front yard. Roe suspects this is a sign of more bad things to come. And she is right.

Soon Martin’s niece, Regina, shows up with a baby that no one knew she had. Then she disappears, leaving behind the child—and a murdered husband. To find her, Roe and Martin retrace her steps from sunny Georgia back to snowy Ohio, where they will uncover dark family secrets—at their own peril…


“Gossipy, blithe, often funny — with a windup that’s fierce, shocking and poignant. A winner for Harris this time out.”

Kirkus, Starred Review

“Live-wire actions, small-town antics, unexpected plot ramifications, and a humorous tone make for fine reading. For all collections.”

Library Journal

“A gripping tale […] Harris mixes elements of a cozy and her darker themes with skill and panache.”
