Aurora "Roe" Teagarden's fortunes change when a deceased acquaintance names her as heir to a rather substantial estate, including money, jewelry, and a house complete with a skull hidden in a window seat. Roe concludes that the elderly woman has left her a murder to solve. Now she must identify the victim and figure out which of her new, ordinary-seeming neighbors is a murderer - without putting herself in deadly danger.

I'm the kind of person who can enjoy a book and if I really enjoy it - can start to read / hear it all over again! I blame the dyslexia.
This is the second in the series I've tried. Will try one more- but I don't find character as funny or sympathetic as Snookie.
The quality of the narrating is very good and allows the listener to relax and enjoy the story.
I enjoy a wide variety of 'cozy' murder mysteries and I would put the Aurora Teagarden series in this group.
The Sue Grafton Kinsey Milhone are another mystery series that I enjoy, but I think these are less 'cosy'
Therese Plummer manages to narrate with drama, while making the whole experience of listening to the story relaxing.
Aurora inherites a fortune, but is that all...
For something undemanding to snooze to under a beach umbrella this would do very well. The pace is not fast, the characters are non-threatening and all in all it's a safe read.
