I was sent Charlaine Harris Oct 4th release All the Little Liars to review and finished it Thursday night. I found this to be a very well written and easy to read. I read the entire book in one sitting. The characters are easy to like and understand and the author did a great job of balancing the good news with the bad. This book reads like a cozy mystery and for most intensive purposes it is a cozy, except that it breaks the unwritten rule that children are not the ones put directly in harms way. This is however is a very relevant and very plausible mystery. It feels as though it was ripped from the headlines of CNN. The setting, time of year and emotional turmoil of this mystery played well into the story line and kept me turning page after page.
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?Charlaine Harris please click here.
