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.
All the Little Liars by Charlaine Harris
Aurora is happily pregnant, living content with her new husband and her ½ brother Phillip, when suddenly her world is torn apart when Phillip and three other kids disappear. Of course, Phillip being a new comer to town and a runaway, is blamed for their untimely disappearance. Now Aurora must pull out all the stop to uncover the mystery behind the missing kids before it’s too late.
Harris writes a tale that uncovers bullying and hate crimes all within the heart of Aurora’s home town. This puts a deep strain on Robin and Aurora’s new marriage but when Aurora’s father arrives pointing fingers it makes Aurora dig deep to find the strength to push on to what’s important…the missing children.
Another fabulously penned mystery by Charlaine Harris, All the Little Liars faces the terrible social situations of today while providing a mystery that you can really sink your teeth into.
Although this is a series, All the Little Liars was my first read in this series but won't be my last with plans to back read the rest. I found it quick and easy to follow and didn't feel like I was trying to play catch up or lost by missing previous books.
I received this ARC copy of All the Little Liars from St. Martin's Press - Minotaur Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication October 4, 2016.
