Sleep Like a Baby (#10)

Previous: All the Little Liars

Being a new mother can be murder in New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris’s latest heart-pounding mystery starring the inimitable Aurora Teagarden, Sleep Like a Baby

Robin and Aurora have finally begun their adventure in parenting. Everything is going swimmingly but when Roe’s mother offers to pay for live-in childcare for Sophie, how can she refuse? Baby Nurse Virginia proves to be a godsend when Robin has to leave town for work and Roe is struck with a bad case of the flu. Then, one dark and stormy night, Roe wakes to hear the screams of her daughter…and, lo and behold, Virginia is nowhere to be found. Instead, Roe happens upon a dead body in her backyard who is definitely not Virginia. As if the demands of new motherhood weren’t enough, now Roe must unlock this shocking double mystery. How can she manage to find Virginia and a killer. . .on so little sleep?


“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.”

Publishers Weekly

“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.”


“As always, Harris transports us not only into the summer heat of Georgia but plops us down in Roe and Robin’s living room in the middle of everything [...] Make room in the To Be Read Pile.”

Kings River Life Magazine

“After reading SLEEP LIKE A BABY, I have a renewed appreciation of the author’s writing skills, as well as a reminder of how much I enjoyed this series in the past. I am hoping the author treats us to more of Roe’s adventures in the future.”
