When Robin Crusoe returns to Lawrenceton to create a film, Roe Teagarden is surprised to learn that her estranged stepson is part of the crew, and when the neighborhood goes film crazy, an unknown murderer begins a killing spree.

McMillan Palgrave
In the first installment of the Aurora Teagarden series, Real Murders, the small town of Lawrenceton, Georgia, was beset by a series of horrific murders. Librarian Aurora "Roe" Teagarden teamed up with true crime writer Robin Crusoe to catch the killer, and the results of their investigation have gone down in Lawrenceton history.

Now Robin is back in town, set to begin filming the movie version of the terrible events of so many years ago. Of course he's not alone-he brings with him a cast and crew the size of which nearly overwhelms the tiny excitement-starved town. Roe is disturbed to discover that the film's crew includes her stepson, who despises her, as well as an actress set to play her in the film. Everyone in Lawrenceton suddenly goes movie crazy, mentally composing awards-acceptance speeches while prancing around the fringes of the set awaiting discovery.

Roe's not so crazy about the whole thing...and neither is a secret, vicious murderer. When bodies start dropping, it's up to Roe to reprise her role as amateur sleuth and stop the carnage before it gets out of hand. It's no problem for the beloved small-town librarian in this wonderfully cozy installment in the adored Aurora Teagarden mystery series.

Another good book in this series. Aurora Teagarden is learning to live her life without Martin in it. She decides to sell her house and move closer to the city. Robin Crusoe has come back into her life when the story he wrote is going to become a movie. Again, just when Roe thinks things might be back to normal, there is another murder. It seem someone is in love with Robin and is stalking him. I like the way Charlaine Harris writes. She keeps you wondering who is the murderer right to the very end.

Aurora Teagarden, a year removed from the sudden, tragic death of her husband Martin is starting to take an interest in life again. A movie crew is in town shooting the movie from the book her friend Robin wrote about their first murder adventure. Robin is also looking to rekindle his and Roe's relationship. When the star of the movie turns up dead, Roe gets involved in spite of herself. Good installment in the series.

Roe Teagarden is an interesting and feisty character - not an annoying character trait in sight with this heroine. I really loved her interactions with the people in her town and the Arthur and Robin characters.

Very fast-paced and enjoyable.

Another excellent Aurora Teagarden mystery. Charlaine Harris outdid herself yet again. I like to try to solve the mystery before I reached the end. I would never have guessed the ending to this one. I highly recommend this book!!
