I didn't enjoy this sixth Aurora mystery as much as the previous 5. I had to suspend belief over why the baby wouldn't be taken in to care by the state. It did become obvious in the end as the plot wouldn't have worked otherwise, but it still made it an implausible story for me.
The story starts off with the usual random event I have come to expect from Charlaine Harris but this had very little to do with the main plot and was only featured again right at the end, almost as if the whole event had been added in after completing the story.

It lacked the usual cosy mystery element for me and seems to have lost it's footing in this genre with this particular story. However it has not put me off reading the next one as I have grown so fond of Aurora I need to know what happens to her character.
