The Julius HouseLarge Print - 2009
After thirty-one years of being single - practically a spinster to the folks of Laurenceton, Georgia - Aurora "Roe" Teagarden is finally getting married. Her fiance is Martin Bartell, a newcomer to the area, who works for the town's most powerful and largest employer. Though not much is known about Martin, Roe is headover-heels in love and rejects her family, friends, and the minister's advice that she should learn more about Martin. But when friends of Martin's, the Youngbloods, take residence in the new garage apartment, Roe begins to feel that they're scrutinizing her every move, and acting more like wardens than tenants. And when Martin's answers fail to reassure her, she begins to question what kind of man she's fallen in love with.
