Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In this best of the series to date, Aurora (Roe) Teagarden, the former librarian returned to her roots in Lawrenceton, Ga., marries Martin Bartell, the rich, secretive and charismatic businessman she met in Three Bedrooms, One Corpse (1994). For their home, Martin buys the house once occupied by T.C. Julius, his terminally ill wife Hope and their teenage daughter. Six years earlier, the Julius family had disappeared without a trace, leaving only Hope's mother in the garage apartment. Martin lets the apartment to an old Vietnam buddy, Shelby Youngblood, and his wife Angel, who seem suspiciously like bodyguards to Roe. As questions about Martin's past and present disturb her newfound happiness, Roe determines to solve the Julius family mystery, enlisting Angel's help. A vicious attack and a stunning discovery lead the two women to New Orleans and a dramatic set of answers to puzzles old and new. The author's brisk, upbeat style keeps tension simmering under the everyday surface, while Roe's inclination to girlish chatter (a trial in earlier works) is restrained.

From Library Journal

Aurora Teagarden, who gave up librarianship when she inherited money, marries the handsome businessman she met in Three Bedrooms, One Corpse (LJ 3/1/94). They settle down in his wedding gift to her: the so-called Julius house, named for the family who disappeared from it six years earlier. Aurora eventually discovers what really happened; unfortunately, she also uncovers a few unsavory things about her husband. Suspense sprouts from tiny seeds planted early on, and the tensions of a new marriage and an old mystery provide much fertilizer. Good reading, augmented by solid characterization and occasional humor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big changes for Aurora Teagarden Dec 23 2008
By Pacey1927 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
"The Julius House" is the fourth Aurora Teagarden mystery. Aurora Teagarden went for years without dating. Then in a brief amount of time she had a torrid relationship with a police officer which fizzled fast, and another relationship with the town minister, that never truly heated up. Now 31, Aurora is getting married to an older man, Martin Bartell, who she realizes that she doesn't REALLY know. She knows Martin has big secrets but she is ready to marry him anyway. Charlaine Harris never really spells it out for the reader, but I believe that Aurora feels like she is becoming a 'spinster'. She wants marriage, a real relationship with a man so much that she doesn't care that he has secrets as long as she can pretend they don't exist. Shortly after she and Martin marry, Aurora learns some of his secrets. And now Aurora finds herself with a new house, the Julius House, and its mystery of how the family disappeared six years ago. That mystery is a good, entertaining one, but even more pressing is what Martin is hiding. The new characters are Martin's 'friends' who have moved into the apartment attached to the Julius House, and they are intresting as well. Angel is particular was well drawn and I can't wait to see if anything intresting comes from her character. Altogether this was an extremely strong volume to the series. I think I enjoy this one better than then Harris's Shakespeare's series. I also think this series is getting more engrossing as the go along. Recommended to Charlaine Harris fans as well as mystery fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as Good as Previous Books, But Still A Great Author! March 19 2003
By Silmarwen - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Julius House is the fourth book in the Aurora Teagarden series. Aurora "Roe" has finally recovered from her injuries incurred at the end of the last book and is happily engaged to Martin Bartell, her handsome, older, richer boyfriend. For her wedding gift, Martin buys her the Julius house, the perfect house for her. Many people think she is crazy for living there due to the sudden disappearance of the Julius family who used to live there. Roe doesn't worry about it in the slightest and concentrates on glorying in her happily engaged status. She loves being the bride instead of the bridesmaid and pushes any doubts about her soon-to-be-husband aside. When they return from their perfect honeymoon in England, Roe settles in to redecorate and get settled. She is surprised when Martin informs her that two of his friends are down on their luck and that they will be moving into the apartment over the garage. Still, Roe is in love and excited to meet some of Martin's friends and does her best to welcome them. She soon discovers, however, that they are really there to guard her. When pressured, Martin confesses that he is a gunrunner in South America and that he is always worried about retaliation. To take her mind off of this confession, Roe decides that she is going to find out what happened to the Julius family and drags her bodyguard along for the ride. She soon discovers that sometimes it is better to let secrets remain buried...
I admit that the whole Roe/Martin wedding was a little contrived, but Roe really has wanted to get married all of her life and is extremely flattered that such an attractive, wealthy gentleman would be in love with her. It was fun to see Roe's thought processes as she dealt with extreme changes and challenges in her new life. I quite enjoyed the whole Julius family subplot and, though the ending was a little bit too shocking, Roe's whole investigation was quite logical and shows how one determined person can often put clues together that other people missed. As with the her other books, Charlaine Harris offers the reader a host of interesting supporting characters, many amusing details about the mystery and a fun, fast read for those who enjoy this type of genre. I feel that Harris' other mystery series starring Lily Bard (Shakespeare set) is stronger and her Dead Until Dark series is cleverer, but anything that Harris writes is worth reading!
