Longtime MG fave and bestselling author Charlaine Harris steps into the spotlight at 3:30 PM, to sign and discuss All the Little Liars, the new Aurora Teagarden mystery in more than a decade. Publishers Weekly noted, “Harris weaves a complex tale of difficult family dynamics that highlights the horrors of being a teenager. Aurora, a smart and witty protagonist, possesses all the Southern charm necessary to carry this entertaining series.”
In small screen news, viewers of the Hallmark Channel’s Aurora Teagarden mysteries may spot Charlaine in a cameo in forthcoming mystery movie, The Julius House. And NBC has picked up the television rights for the Midnight, Texas series, the latest of which, Night Shift, was released this spring.
This is a numbered event – numbers for the signing line are free with the purchase of All The Little Liars from Mysterious Galaxy. Books and tickets will be available for pick-up on Tuesday, October 4, starting at 10 AM!
Aurora Teagarden is basking in the news of her pregnancy when disaster strikes her small Georgia town: four kids vanish from the school soccer field in an afternoon. Aurora s 15-year-old brother Phillip is one of them. Also gone are two of his friends, and an 11-year-old girl who was just hoping to get a ride home from soccer practice. And then there s an even worse discovery at the kids last known destination, a dead body.
While the local police and sheriff s department comb the county for the missing kids and interview everyone even remotely involved, Aurora and her new husband, true crime writer Robin Crusoe, begin their own investigation. Could the death and kidnappings have anything to do with a group of bullies at the middle school? Is Phillip s disappearance related to Aurora s father s gambling debts? Or is Phillip himself, new to town and an unknown quantity, responsible for taking the other children? But regardless of the reason, as the days go by, the most important questions remain. Are the kids still alive? Who could be concealing them? Where could they be?
With Christmas approaching, Aurora is determined to find her brother if he s still alive.
At Midnight's local pawnshop, weapons are flying off the shelves--only to be used in sudden and dramatic suicides right at the main crossroads in town. Who better to figure out why blood is being spilled than the vampire Lemuel, who, while translating mysterious texts, discovers what makes Midnight the town it is. There's a reason why witches and werewolves, killers and psychics, have been drawn to this place. And now they must come together to stop the bloodshed in the heart of Midnight. For if all hell breaks loose--which just might happen--it will put the secretive town on the map, where no one wants it to be..
There is no such thing as bad publicity, except in Midnight, Texas, where the residents like to keep to themselves. When psychic Manfred Bernardo finds himself embroiled in a scandal and hounded by the press after one of his regular clients dies during a reading, he turns to enigmatic, beautiful, and dangerous Olivia Charity for help. Somehow he knows that the mysterious Olivia can get things back to normal. As normal as things get in Midnight.
Welcome to Midnight Pawn, one of the few businesses in a small West Texas community marked by the stoplight at the corner of Witch Light Road and the Davy Highway. Few pass through, and fewer stay – and most of the latter share two traits: a craving for privacy and secrets to hide. Newcomer (familiar to readers of the Harper Connelly series) Manfred Bernardo, who has just relocated to the rental house next to the pawnshop, empathizes with his neighbor’s concerns even as he endeavors to transition from outsider to resident. Readers and Manfred learn much more when the discovery of a murdered corpse and resultant official and unofficial investigations bring a number of hidden stories to light. Recommended for fans of Charlaine’s supernatural and suspense stories.
Aurora Teagarden is happily preparing for her wedding to dashing business executive Martin Bartell. As a wedding gift, Martin buys her the house of her dreams: the “Julius house,” infamously named after the family who vanished from the house without a trace six years ago. As Roe sets about renovating and decorating her new home, she’s never felt happier.
Then Martin suddenly rents the small apartment on their new property to an old army buddy and his wife, who seem to be more bodyguard than tenant, and Roe is sure her husband-to-be is keeping secrets. To take her mind off her suspicions, she opens her own unofficial investigation into the Julius family cold case. But when an axe-wielding stranger attacks her, Roe must determine whether it’s her husband’s secrets, the mystery of the Julius family’s fates, or both, that have put her own life on the chopping block.
