Aurora Teagarden, mild-mannered librarian, has spent her entire life in the same small Georgia town. Along with her sister-in-law Poppy, Roe has finally earned a coveted spot in the Uppity Women, an exclusive group that does more than flower arranging. But Poppy is a no-show on their induction day. Roe stops by Poppy's house to find out why and is shocked to discover Poppy dead on the kitchen floor, and it's not by accident. There's no lack of suspects, since both Poppy and her husband were unfaithful. Even the detective in charge of the case, Roe's former lover Arthur Smith, has a past with Poppy. As if that weren't enough, Roe has rekindled a relationship with another old flame and things are moving fast, with plans to meet his mother at Thanksgiving. She's also acquired an unexpected house guest: her half-brother, who's run away from his parents' home in California. Balancing her personal life while looking into Poppy's murder isn't easy, but Roe is determined to give it -- and Poppy -- her best effort. And when Roe discovers that the crime scene has been ransacked, she knows someone is desperate to hide a secret. Roe will have to dig through Poppy's life to uncover the truth and bring the killer to justice. Poppy Done to Death is the engaging eighth installment of the Aurora Teagarden mysteries by #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris. The series has been adapted into film for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

I don't know why people in the comments before this are announcing this is the end of the series. The next book, Sleep like a Baby, in the series is on order at the library and ready at booksellers. So ignore people who are trying to spoil the book for you and just enjoy it.

Another very good book in the Aurora Teagarden series. I have enjoyed this series from the first book right up to this one. In this book Aurora (Roe) is still in a relationship with Robin, although she is not sure where this relationship is going at times. This book starts out with Roe finding her sister-in-law murdered when she goes to her house. Then her step brother, Philip, shows up after hitching a ride from California. Roe of course is trying to help everyone with their problems while dealing with her own. She finds herself tired all the time and putting on a little weight. Could she be pregnant? It seems it is one thing after another, but everything does work out in the end. I don't want to give anything away by saying more. I am really looking forward to the next book, which I am sorry to say that I think will be the last book in this series. I am sure you will enjoy this book.

Good plot - main character less annoying than usual!

FINAL?! END?! SERIOUSLY?! The Aurora Teagarden series was a favourite of mine, this book being tied for the best with the first, Real Murders, in my opinion. The murders, in addition to Aurora's personal life consisting of constantly changing lovers and real estate, were extremely captivating. Excellent characters and plot. Very interesting!

The Aurora Teagarden series comes to a close with Roe's step-sister-in-law getting murdered right before she is set to be inducted into "Uppity Women" an exclusive book club (what an idea!). As usual Roe is in the middle of things. Things are also getting more serious with her on-again flame, Robin. I enjoyed this series very much. Great light reading/listening for the bus commute and all the audiobooks are available on OneClick Digital.

The final Aurora Teagarden mystery is an entertaining end to the series. I liked reading a bit more about Aida's stepchildren and their wives. The new characters were interesting and moved the story along well. Also, Roe and Robin's HEA was just what I would have wanted for our feisty heroine.
