"Only you could buy a house that turns out to be a crime scene"
This Aurora Teagarden mystery finds out librarian sleuth looking to buy a house. The one she buys from Gabrielle Rose is the Julius House of the title. Made infamous by the fact the family who owned it a father, mother and daughter drove away in a car one night and just never came back. At least that's the legend of Julius House. Gabrielle Rose is the grandmother who inherited the place.
But demolishing legends in the process of solving mysteries is the Aurora Teagarden specialty. Just around the house she finds bits and pieces and one clinchable clue that makes this missing persons case a homicide.
It's a tale of greed, corruption, and young love run a muck. Note Yannick Bisson as Aurora's steady is really engaged in this mystery, Marilu Henner as Aurora's mother and Bruce Dawson member of Candace Cameron Bure's mystery club seem to hit a rocky patch in their relationship.
The one I would not want to be is Miranda Frigon who was on the original missing persons case. She definitely could get busted back to uniform for the boo boo she made.
One of the best of the series.
