En este séptima entrega los habitantes de la localidad de Lawrenceton se ven obligados a revivir los asesinatos llevados a cabo en el primer libro "Unos asesinatos muy reales" ya que el caótico y excéntrico mundo de Hollywood deci...more

Decepcionada me he quedado tras su lectura. Esta no es una saga que haya comenzado a leer desde el principio y aunque se pueda leer de forma independiente he sentido desconexión con sus personajes.
De todos modos no le daré una oportunidad a la saga, aunque sí a la autora con su saga de vampiros a ver si la cosa mejora en esa.
after: This was as good as #'s 1-5. I still cannot forgive the 6th book, but I'm not the forgiving type. I guess for some people grief is just another part of life and not the perminantly soul crushing experience I've always found it. Still, I re...more
Aurora still lives in the same small town. [I have missed a book but it didn’t take long to catch up.] When the events of book one took place, a writer, Robin Crusoe, lived in town. He wrote a best seller based on t...more

The revelations at the end were a little odd and out of left field, but I've come to expect that. The various culprits were completely obvious though, being telegraphed from dozens of pa...more
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
If we're going to be honest about it, I have to admit I have a bit of an addiction to murder mysteries and thrillers. I'm not entirely sure why...anyway. I found this Charlaine Harris novel waiting on the Newly Arrived shelf at the library, and I couldn't help but take a peek.
I loved Harris's previous work (mostly The Sookie Stackhouse stories), but I always had a bit of an issue with a) her female characters and b) her narrative. The second isn't as annoying as t...more
Aurora's still dealing with the aftermath of losing Martin some time past and this volume is where she shakes off the depression of her widowhood and dives back into life. Of course, it's also the precise point when she comes up against the film crew, stirring up bad memories for Roe while bringing excitement to the re...more
