A book review of Sleep Like a Baby by Charlaine Harris. Post may contain affiliate links.
On a whim, I chose to read Sleep Like a Baby by Charlaine Harris. I hadn’t read one of her books in awhile. Once again, she proves herself to be an author that you can easily return to time and time again.
I haven’t read any of the other Aurora Teagarden mysteries, though I plan to. When I chose the book, I didn’t know it was a series. As I was reading it, there was occasional mention of an event that happened in the past. Many authors use this technique, but no one does it quite so well as Charlaine Harris. She lets you know that these characters have a history, but she doesn’t make it sound like some soap opera recap like some authors do.
The story revolves around Aurora Teagarden, her husband Robin, and their new baby daughter Sophie. Like most mysteries, there is a dead body. This time it is found in their very own backyard.
This is not one of those mysteries with lots of twists and turns that leaves you second guessing along the way and frantically turning pages to find out what happens next. It takes a more meandering route, taking it’s time, with the story unfolding. It’s as much about the characters as it is about the mystery.
It was just what I was in the mood for. Completely enjoyable.
I received an ARC of the book.
