Aurora Teagarden's life was pretty much in order, though she wouldn't have objected to a nice relationship. All things considered, however, there wasn't anything to complain about. Then Jane Engle died. Aurora and Jane had been friends - not particularly close friends, but they'd both been members of the Real Murder Society and on occasion had shared tea, as well as an interest in crime. So Aurora was surprised to discover that she was named in Jane's will as the heir to her home and some money—about a half million dollars, in fact. A nice house, a lot of money...things were looking up nicely. But the house held a secret - a fact that was frighteningly obvious the first time Aurora went there and realized that someone had broken in, had been searching for something. It didn't take long to discover the secret: Jane had hidden a skull, and Aurora had just found it. Aurora Teagarden was no stranger to a good mystery, but she wasn't quite certain what to do with this one. Before she has a chance to consider her next move, someone decides that she already knows too much. Now she has a few more questions to answer: Whodunit? Who was it done to? And who seemed to keep on wanting to do it?

I did enjoy this book very much. Roe inherits a house and finds a skull hidden there. Now she doesn't know what to do with it. Of course Roe being Roe, she decides to hold it until she can find out who the skull belongs to. This book held my interest and had me wondering right up to the end. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Big changes for Aurora Teagarden after she inherits a house and a fortune from another member of the now defunct Real Murders club. Now that she's independently wealthy and Arthur (her boyfriend from Real Murders) has married someone else, what's in store for Roe? A new career? A new beau? New murders to investigate? All of the above? I'll give you one guess. This series of mysteries is quick, light-weight and fun.

I really enjoyed this book! I like where it takes Roe and how it changes her. If you liked the first one, you'll probably like this one too!

This was another entertaining Aurora Teagarden novel. The mystery was very engrossing and kept me guessing with a lot of false leads. I was disappointed that Roe's relationship and end of her relationship with Arthur Smith happened off the page between Real Murders and A Bone to Pick. I would have enjoyed reading about their relationship.
