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?
“A delightful series.”—Library Journal
“Don’t be lulled. This is Charlaine Harris, who is the equal of the legendary Shirley Jackson in conveying the sinister lurking beneath the everyday.”
"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."
