Publisher's Weekly
An ingenious plot and sufficient flow of blood keep the pages flying in Harris's ( Sweet and Deadly ) third novel, as a series of killings patterned after celebrated murders is perpetrated on the small community of Lawrenceton, Ga. Twenty-eight-year-old Aurora (Roe) Teagarden, professional librarian, belongs to the Real Murders club, a group of 12 enthusiasts who gather monthly to study famous baffling or unsolved crimes. As a meeting is to begin, Roe discovers the massacred body of a club member. She recognizes the method of slaughter as imitating the very crime she was to address that night--suddenly her life as armchair sleuth assumes an eerie reality. The murderer continues to claim victims, each in the style of a different historical killer. Roe herself becomes a target, and also attracts two admirers, Robin Crusoe, a famed mystery writer new to Lawrenceton, and club member/detective Arthur Smith. Death seems to have infused new life into her waning social calendar, an irony not lost on this pensive character. Harris draws the guilty and the innocent into an engrossing tale while inventing a heroine as capable and potentially complex as P. D. James's Cordelia Gray. (Dec.)

One day i'll get around to the Southern ampire series, but in the meantime, I' m really enjoying Harris's other books and this was no exception. Aurora does seem a bit like Lily Bard sans muscles but this did not detract from this enjoyable mystery.

THis is now on it's way to CandyDarling


Journal Entry 8 by CandyDarling from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Wednesday, April 09, 2008
Received today, thank you!

I really enjoyed this first Aurora Teagarden mystery. Charlaine Harris has a distinct style that I like a lot, and so far none of her books have disappointed me. This series does remind me a bit of the Lily Bard series though.

It was nice to read a mystery book for a change. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

I mailed this with the second book, A Bone to Pick, to Morgaine77 a couple of weeks ago.

Journal Entry 10 by Morgaine77 from Münchenstein, Baselland Switzerland on Monday, August 18, 2008
Arrived safely in Germany. Looking forward to reading this! Thanks so much for sharing!

Journal Entry 11 by Morgaine77 from Münchenstein, Baselland Switzerland on Thursday, September 04, 2008
I absolutely loved it! Roe is a very loveable character and I very much enjoyed the mystery. I don't know what it is about Charlaine Harris, but so far, I liked all of her books, no matter from which series. I'm so glad I have the next book in the series already here and can start reading it right away! :-)

I'll hang on to "Real Murders" until I'm done with "A Bone to Pick".

Thanks so much for making this Ring available!

Journal Entry 13 by shaunesay from Olathe, Kansas USA on Sunday, October 05, 2008
Arrived in Kansas! Looking forward to the series! Note: I believe that Nan1970 is MIA with books owed on BookObsessed (and I see she is not on this list but was on the list for #2), so I will likely not send to her, but to NeedMoreZoloft instead. Thanks!

Journal Entry 14 by shaunesay from Olathe, Kansas USA on Thursday, October 23, 2008
PM'd NeedMoreZoloft to say I was ready to send this soon, but she asked to be taken off the ring, so I guess this copy goes back to CheriePie, per the directions!

Journal Entry 15 by shaunesay from Olathe, Kansas USA on Friday, February 13, 2009
Heading back to CheriePie this weekend, with #2. Thanks all, I'm now hooked on this series!

Received back from Shaunie last week. NeedSun wanted me to have these back since I originally got them for her. So thanks. I'll keep them moving to more readers. :)
