The unassuming librarian-heroine of Charlaine Harris’ eponymous mystery series, Aurora Teagarden is 28 years old, single, and doesn’t need to look for trouble—trouble finds her. When she’s not working at her local library or researching famous murders, she’s tracking down—or being tracked by—psychopaths and serial killers. Either
despite or because of her penchant for interesting predicaments, she never lacks for gentlemen admirers and doesn’t mind a last minute run to the boutique for just the right outfit to wear on a date.

Kristen Hanley Cardozo’s skirt fits Aurora to a T. Understated and simple with a ripple of lacy color running round the hem and worked in a gorgeous silk/wool blend, it’s as perfect for dates as it is for shelving books or confronting criminals.
