This is a review of “Real Murders”, the first novel in Charlaine Harris’ Aurora Teagarden Series.
Aurora Teagarden is a librarian. She loves to read about famous and unsolved murders, and attends a Murder Club each week: Real Murders. It is her week to present on a famous murder, so she arrives early to prepare, and finds a real dead body. A fellow member of Real Murders is dead, and her death strongly resembles that of a murder that occurred long ago. Is it a mere coincidence?
A number of other murders begin to be carried out all over town, each bearing an eerie similarity to a famous murder case. Aurora vows to solve this mystery and discover who is behind these gruesome activities before anyone else gets hurt.
Full of humour, a bit of romance, danger and descriptions of day-to-day Southern life, this twisted murder mystery is an entertaining read.
