This was the first Aurora Teagarden book I read, and I thought reading the series would make me like the character , but instead I pretty much detest her The mystery itself is okay, but Aurora s internal monologue drove me crazy for the entire book I also really noticed how she s always dressing in shades of yellow, orange, brown, or dark green, and the description of the clothes make her sound like she s twenty years older than she is The other characters also seemed to dress in these colors In the first or second book Aurora was rather plain and mousy, but now men notice her or come on to her like she s some great beauty There s a little bit of the changing glasses for frames to fit her mood in this book, but luckily we no longer get the prattling on about how weird her name is.The story begins with a movie crew coming to town to film a 2 part miniseries based on the book by Robin Crusoe about the serial murders from the first Aurora Teagarden mystery Aurora spends a good chunk of the book acting all angry because the townspeople are happy to have Hollywood come to town, and acting like she s the major victim here Really What about the families of people who
I liked this one but it s a bit dreary due to Roe s recent loss Hopefully the next one is better because I really enjoy this series. I have definitely been enjoying this series as we go along Perhaps it is also the trip down memory lane as the series starts in the 90s, so the descriptions of hair and clothes and no mobile phones is quite endearin
I wanted to read this book before watching the TV movie Although I have read other Aurora Teagarden mysteries I have not necessarily read them in order and with this one I realized the importance of reading them in order to get Aurora s history and the history of the town.This one reflects back to the first in the series The story of the first murder mystery Aurora solves is brought back when it is being made into a movie and the
With book 7, Charlaine Harris brings Aurora back around full circle She s single, she s entrenched in the movie version of the events that started the series, and lo and behold, Robin Crusoe is back on the scene But although there are many similarities between Roe then and Roe now, we re keenly aware of how much she s changed By her own admission, she s a kick butt rich widow who s not afraid to be blunt and than a little eccentric As always, one thing never changes Roe is a mini murder magnet Trouble seems to follow her no matter what Bu
The last one available at this time, it s better than the rest, but I wouldn t suggest reading them out of order You can, but there is a lot of history to catch up on She did much better at creating a mystery not just one, yet still kept the same style It s not quite the same kind of candy book as the first of the series certainly showed her maturing as a writer It s still light engaging, a fun read with no pretensions to be anything else A good mystery with a bit
Quick read which I found by chance in the library Read the previous books in the series and what I like is that Aurora s life isn t perfect, and she doesn t make ridiculous leaps of reasoning when solving a crime Often it s a chance encounter or a conversation, or in some cases a blow on the head. Maybe if I d started with the first one of this series I would have liked this one, but it was definitely a disappointment The main character is rather pathetic, constantly talking about her independence while turning to various men in her life and being rescued
Aurora Teagarden s past is back to haunt her, and this time it is preparing to go onto the small screen Roe s first opportunity to deal with murder first hand was when she was in the Real Murders group, a number of local residents of Lawrenceton, Georgia, with an interest in true crime Things got a little out of hand when certain members decided to make true crime something to read about Those adventures made up the first book in this series, Real Murders.Robin Crusoe, famed author and one time boyfriend, helped in solving the crime as well as took an opportunity to write a bestselling book based on the events Roe was less than pleased with the latter part, and is now going to be confronted not only with past events, but her ex boyfriend, and she is not sure if she is ready for that even with her new status as a widow In fact, she is still heavily grieving the loss of Martin in the last year.Crusoe s book has been picked up to be made into a two part television mini series, and it is going t
