Charlaine Harris can't seem to write a bad book. SLEEP
LIKE A BABY is another excellent example. Aurora is back
and very pregnant. After delivering her beautiful
daughter Sophie, she is thrown into the world of loving a
child. Experiencing the kind of love only a parent can know.
being Aurora, life is never just simple motherhood.
Her husband, Robin Crusoe, goes on a business trip leaving
Aurora with Sophie, her brother, and a nanny, Virginia, to
help. The day Robin leaves, Aurora comes down with a full
blown case of the flu. Virginia is a life saver until Aurora
wakes up to a screaming baby and can't find
Virginia anywhere. If a missing nanny isn't bad enough,
what Aurora does find is a body in the back yard. Now
with a horrible case of the flu, Aurora must deal with a
missing nanny, a dead stranger, and a very hungry baby.
Aurora and Robin are a wonderful couple, along with her
brother and new baby Sophie, you have a family that you
love and want to follow. It sure helps keep the story
exciting, that if there is trouble anywhere then it will
involve Aurora or those close to her.
Aurora and Robin look into the case, even as the police
investigation progresses. They are practical and talk
though things in a manner that insures the readers can feel
their process working.
As I said, Charlaine Harris can not write a bad book. She
has the most wonderful characters written. You become
part of their lives and love their town. You want to go
over, share a cup of tea with Aurora and read Robin's
latest novel. I'm so glad the Aurora Teagarden
series is still
going strong. I can't wait to see what kind of trouble
she will get into next.
