Though a small town at heart, Lawrenceton, Georgia, has its dark side—and its crime buffs. One of them is librarian Aurora “Roe” Teagarden, a member of the Real Murders Club, which meets once a month to analyze famous cases. It’s a harmless pastime—until the night she finds a member killed in a manner that eerily resembles the crime the club was about to discuss.

As other brutal copycat killings follow, Roe will have to uncover the person behind the terrifying game, one that casts all the members of Real Murders, herself included, as prime suspects—or potential victims.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Peter | 2/19/2014

    " A good mystery, little old fashion. The style of wrtiting reminded me of Agatha Christie's books - especially those of Miss Maple. However, it is light reading compare to Dame Christie as there is no "excitement". Well written book. Looking forward to reading 2nd book - A Bone to Pick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanne | 2/13/2014

    " Quick easy to read murder mystery, the sort of book that doesn't require your brain in gear. Enjoyed the premise of the murders, and most of them I was aware of. Did feel this could be longer, the ending was very quick and felt a little flat, however I'll read the next to see what happens next. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/22/2014

    " After reading the Sookie Stackhouse books and eating them up, I bought all of this series...all of them. Ug! I am slowly going through them- haven't picked one up now for at least half a year. This series is so boring. I just don't understand how she can hit home with one series and suck so bad on another. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Draper | 1/11/2014

    " I don't know what it is about Aurora, but I just love this whole series. I like Charlaine's characters because they are almost always strong, solid, people. I enjoy a good leading lady. ;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keli Wright | 12/29/2013

    " now that I have read everything by Stephenie Meyer I thought it was time to move on to Charlaine Harris. I decided to start with the "Aurora Teagarden" series...I really liked this and had NO idea who the murderer was until the VERY end :) I look forward to reading more in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Polly | 12/14/2013

    " Good mystery. Off beat heroine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wealhtheow | 12/8/2013

    " Good mystery novels with a sensible Southern heroine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alissa | 11/18/2013

    " this was a pretty good book. not her True Blood but a good mystery novelist! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 10/19/2013

    " This book seems very much like a first effort. The mystery was interesting, but I'm curious to see how the series progresses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 10/14/2013

    " Ok very light and quick read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katty | 8/14/2013

    " This was a good, quick read. Not exactly the best I've ever read and it didn't come anywhere close to Sookie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaun | 6/24/2013

    " This is such a cute character! I think that the reason why I like Charlaine Harris' characters is because they are so relateable! I think that my fav so far is Roe, because she's a librarian! Okay, I'm not a librarian, but I love books and I work at Borders! I can't wait to read the rest now! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 6/23/2013

    " This was a very quick easy read. I was looking for something just fun, not intense or emotional and this fit the bill. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elise Stokes | 4/22/2013

    " I like Charlaine Harris as a writer, and really enjoyed this series. Aurora Teagarden is an eccentric, charming, little sleuth, who becomes entangled in all sorts of bizarre murder mysteries in her hometown. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sophie | 1/9/2013

    " I liked this, although the main character did not do much detective-work, tbh. More like, was in the wrong place at the right time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 11/3/2012

    " After all the raving about Sookie Stackhouse I've listened to from friends and family, I was interested to see how Mz. Harris handled a murder mystery - pleasantly surprised! Will continue this series, and check out her other murder mystery series as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hhsuzie | 7/18/2012

    " I got hooked on this series instantly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 6/29/2012

    " One of her earliest works. Entertaining, but not as gripping as her later series so far. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kileen | 3/14/2012

    " I've read 6 of this series in 3 days. It's a beyond easy read and pretty simplistic as far as mystery writing goes. Still, it kept me interested and I always love the characters Charlaine Harris writes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 3/13/2012

    " This is Harris' typical style but I didn't enjoy it as much as her other series. Roe seems more believable as a character, but her life - and by extension the book - seemed a little flat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christa | 3/11/2012

    " Good cozy read. I'll definitely continue the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cori | 2/10/2012

    " I mostly liked this book. I think I was expecting it to be a lot funnier, more in line with the Sookie books, but it was surprisingly lacking in the humor department. The mystery was well done, and it was fast paced. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 6/26/2011

    " Murder mystery series that somehow manages to be...light-ish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 6/23/2011

    " didn't like it as much as I thougt I would. I probadly will not continue with the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maria | 6/21/2011

    " This series never grabbed me like the Lily Bard or early Sookie Stackhouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 6/15/2011

    " Much better series than the Lily Bard one. I actually care what happens to the people in this book. While it wasn't that hard to figure out who the killer was, I enjoyed getting to the resolution. I look forward to reading more of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tami | 6/15/2011

    " Great start to an interesting series. Goes to show librarians aren't always meek & mild!
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leanne | 6/7/2011

    " I really enjoyed this. Different to what I have been reading recently. A lovely change. Did not suspect the murderer at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lissa | 6/6/2011

    " A fun murder mystery. I didn't solve the murder, but had a great time figuring out what murder was being imitateed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 6/4/2011

    " I think this may be Charlaine's first book. It is not her best, but I will continue the series. Unlike some of her other series this does not have anything supernatural in it. The plot was interesting and it was a suprise ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judith | 5/31/2011

    " Quick read but not much substance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerri | 5/28/2011

    " Looking forward to reading the next books in the series! "

    " The description on the book jacket was the best part of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 4/29/2011

    " I enjoyed the series..but not really my favorite. I probably wouldn't read again, but enjoyable nonetheless. "
