Finally deciding on a wedding present for each other, Aurora (Roe) Teagarden and Martin Bartell exchanged gifts. Knowing Roe's fascination with true crimes, he gave her a home that had been the site of 3 missing persons almost 6 years ago. After the honeymoon was over, Martin went back to work and Roe jumped right into her investigation mode, trying to find out what had happened to the Julius family, with the help of the new garage apartment tenant, Roe was determined to find out what had happened in her home.
***3 Book 4 ….. The mystery of the Julius family has been around for a while, I really expected more out of the investigation process. I was disappointed in the amount of time that was spent on this mystery, it was too easy, too predictable and treated too much as a distraction from Roe’s marriage problems. I didn’t like Martin being put in such a negative light ( I really enjoyed his character - till now), I hope CH can save Martin and their marriage in the near future. The ending of the book was a large let down, the mystery was easily over and the marriage was left in a bit of a questionable position. Dead Over Heels is the next Aurora Teagarden mystery, it is time to track that book down.
