In Sleep Like a Baby, the latest installment of Charlaine Harris’s Aurora Teagarden mystery series, Robin and Aurora’s newborn Sophie is proving to be quite a handful. They hire a partially trained nurse, Virginia Mitchell, to come and help the new parents for a few weeks when Robin has to leave town for work and Roe is struck with a bad case of the flu.
One particularly stormy night, Roe wakes to hear her daughter crying and Virginia nowhere to be found. Searching for her reveals a body outside… but it isn’t Virginia’s. Now, not only does Roe have a baby to care for but a new puzzle to contend with — who is this mystery woman dead in their backyard, and what happened to Virginia?
‘Harris’s engrossing 10th Aurora Teagarden novel… 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.’ — Booklist
‘A heroine as capable and complex as P. D. James’s Cordelia Gray.’ — Publishers Weekly on the series
