'A heroine as capable and potentially complex as P. D. James's Cordelia Gray' (Publishers Weekly) Death comes calling on small-town librarian Aurora Teagarden in this entertaining mystery from #1 New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris. Going to two weddings - one of a former lover - and a funeral for a member of her disbanded crime study club keeps Aurora "Roe" Teagarden quite busy for a few months. Unfortunately, her personal life seems to be at a standstill - until her fortunes unexpectedly change. After the funeral Roe learns that Jane Engle, the deceased, has named her as heir to a rather substantial estate, which includes money, jewelry, and a house complete with a skull hidden in a window seat. Knowing Jane, Roe concludes that the elderly woman has purposely left her a murder to solve. So she must identify the victim and figure out which one of Jane's ordinary-seeming neighbors is a murderer - without putting herself in deadly danger . . .
After an accident several years ago, Dean Kropp couldn't work in his business as a caterer to the stars due to his injuries. Fortunately he had insurance. They would take care of him, right? Wrong. Navigating the ins and outs of laws that vary from state to state, fighting insurance companies working diligently to deny claims, and the labyrinth of paperwork and rules for government aid are exhausting . . . when you are healthy. Try it while healing from an accident, "or two, or three." Are you prepared if life takes a nosedive after an illness or injury? Do you have a clear understanding of your vehicle insurance? Do you know your rights if you are hurt in a no-fault accident? Would you be able to make a comeback after being out of work for seven years? Many of us avoid thinking about these questions. Often, when bad things happen, we are not prepared. Dean's story will give you a better idea of what you may be up against if you are injured -- and how you can protect yourself.
