4 stars-- Sleep Like a Baby (Aurora Teagarden #10) by Charlaine Harris

Yall. This is one of my favorite series from back in the day. And getting more of them 10+ years later.. yeeee! Gimme! Things are never calm for Aurora and Robin. A new baby, a missing babysitter, a stalker from the past? Oh, my! Not to mention family drama and some local crazies? Whew boy! Lot to handle when you're a new mama like our Roe. And it was such a good time!

I could not put Sleep Like a Baby down!

The characters are what get me. Roe and Robin deal with a lot of crap being thrown their way from all directions. That pressure and stress could easily make someone fold but they carry through and deal. I like these two! There's a quiet strength to them and their marriage and I just enjoy spending time with them. There's no heat in this one, fyi. But you still get that romance and bond which is nice.

There's a good bit of day to day detail as Roe and Robin go about their lives which, I think, could easily become boring in the wrong hands but somehow with this series it works. I quite enjoy just being tugged along as they deal with everything from food to baby care to ignoring their answering machine. lol

On the mystery front I was able to figure out most of it early on but it was still entertaining watching some final pieces fall into place.

All in all, a fabulous time. Sleep Like a Baby hit the spot. I fell in love with this series years ago and Harris has me falling in love all over again. Sleep Like a Baby hit the spot.

Robin and Aurora have finally begun their adventure in parenting. With newborn Sophie proving to be quite a handful, Roe's mother pays for a partially trained nurse, Virginia Mitchell, to come help the new parents for a few weeks. Virginia proves to be especially helpful when Robin has to leave town for work and Roe is struck with a bad case of the flu.

One particularly stormy night, Roe wakes to hear her daughter crying and Virginia nowhere to be found. Roe's brother Philip helps her search the house and they happen upon a body outside... but it isn't Virginia's. Now, not only does she have a newborn to care for and a vulnerable new marriage to nurture, Roe also has to contend with a new puzzle - who is this mystery woman dead in their backyard, and what happened to Virginia?
