Book Review: Real Murders
TITLE: Real Murders
PART IN SERIES: Book 1 in the Aurora Teagarden series
AUTHOR: Charlaine Harris
PUBLISHED: 1990 (rereleased 2007ish)
GENRE: series, mystery
PREMISE: Librarian Aurora Teagarden is part of the Real Murders club and during the meeting she discovers the dead body of one of the club members and arranged to resemble the case the club was just about to discuss...
MY REVIEW: As with Harris's other mystery books (Harper Connelly, Lily Bard) I mostly was intrigued by the mystery part of this. I like Harris's mysteries. She manages to keep them fast-paced, to keep you stumped, and get the atmosphere just right.
The writing is average and I was tired of the love triangle business (not her fault but since this is the current trend going on right now...) but other then those qualms this was a fun quick cozy mystery to read. Will be looking into the rest of this series for sure.
WHO SHOULD READ: Charlaine Harris fans, cozy mystery fans
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five mystery books
