Description:

#1 New York Times bestseller Charlaine Harris returns to her Aurora Teagarden mystery series with a fabulous new book featuring the small-town Southern librarian.

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. 

After more than a decade, #1 New York Times bestseller Charlaine Harris finally returns to her fan-favorite Aurora Teagarden series with All the Little Liars, a fabulously fun new mystery.

My Thoughts:

This book follows beloved librarian Aurora Teagarden her husband Robin Caruso and her half brother Philip Teagarden in this book Philip and his friends Joss and Josh and a young girl Liza all go missing and the mystery of them is really building up.  Who kidnapped these kids and why?  Aurora is dealing with her new pregnancy and wondering what is going on with her brother Philip and his friends who would want to take them and why?  All signs point to something going on with the kids in school especially when Joss's girlfriend Tammy winds up dead.  Who killed her and why?

This series gets better every time I read it.  Aurora is at it again trying to figure out what is going on in town.  Which leads to a ransom of one of the kids and a bunch of other kids keeping secrets and to what degree will it take to get the other kids involved to start talking?

I can't wait to see what is next in the series especially with Aurora being pregnant and what the impending parenting will look like.  Such a fun series with so much going on!
