Sleep Like a Baby by Charlaine Harris

What They Say....In Sleep Like a Baby, 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.

What I Say....This will be known to me as the Aurora Teagarden gets the flu book.  I mean seriously, I've never seen any mom I know get this much help when they're sick, including bringing in a night nurse for the baby.  Usually moms soldier on because you have no choice. This was like man-flu.

But it ends up backfiring, because Roe ends up with a dead woman in her backyard and a missing nanny.  Robin is out of town, but still seems to be getting the side eye from the neighbors as to his involvement.

As Roe starts to recover from her illness, she starts trying to solve the mystery.  In the meantime, she has a sudden illness in someone close to her, friends who seem to be acting a little strangely to her, and a teenaged brother with a girlfriend.  Even putting in a security system seems to put them in more danger!

This was one of the better entries in the series.  Sometimes I feel like I need an org chart to remember all of the characters from over the years.   This was a sweet, easy read and I really enjoyed it.
