From Goodreads:
In the latest installment of the #1 New York Times Bestselling Charlaine Harris's Aurora Teagarden series, 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? This heart-pounding and exciting next installment of the Aurora Teagarden series will leave fans happy and hungry for more.

Well, the more Aurora Teagarden that is in the world, the better - especially because it means more Hallmark movies! I’m glad Charlaine Harris has returned to her world and I enjoyed all of the twists and turns that the series has taken. (Although, I must admit, whenever I read about how rich Roe is, I get jealous. It seems too easy.) Also, I can tell how much Harris’s writing has grown since her earlier books. The mystery in Sleep Like a Baby was intriguing and the obstacles of Roe being sick while caring for her baby made the story more interesting. Overall, I liked it and I’m hoping for more books!
