I'm on a binge re-reading all of the Aurora Teagarden books. This one was a brand new one for me and the style of it felt different (which I guess is not completely unexpected since there's been 13 years between this one and the previous book in the series). It felt dark and depressing. I love the humor of all of the previous stories and this one has none and it makes it harder to get through the story. I also agree with other reviewers, - the story itself is hard to believe. I still managed to finish the book in a day and a half and can't wait to read the latest book in the series.
