Third in the Aurora Teagarden series, one great new look.
Deciding if she wants to go into real estate becomes a life-or-death choice for Aurora "Roe" Teagarden. A naked corpse is discovered at her first house showing. And when a second body is found in another house for sale, it becomes obvious that there is a very cool killer at large in Lawrenceton, one who knows a great deal about real estate-and maybe too much about Roe.

Since Roe quit her job at the library, she's got a bit of spare time on her hands, so she decides to hang around Select Realty, which happens to be her mother's business. She wants to see if she likes it, and maybe then she can purs...more

There's a love interest introduced in this book who Aurora attaches onto rather quickly, and I never understood why. She talks to her mother and best-friend-from-afar about how much she likes him, but the conversations sounded more like Roe trying to talk herself into it than th...more

Maybe it's because Ms. Teagarden inhabits a(n) world/mentality/experience of female gender that I'm completely alienated by, and thus escaping to it through these novels is like a cheap form of space travel?
Well, this one is up there in terms of entertainment value, as the series goes. I thought, of the ones...more
En esta tercera entrega Aurora comienza a seguir los pasos de su madre como agente inmobiliario y su primera tarea es enseñar una enorme casa a un hombre nuevo en el pueblo, Martin, y su hermana, Barbara. Hasta aquí todo parece normal y la casa preciosa pero en el momento de enseñar una de las últimas estancias, se encuentran un cadáver, una de las agentes inm...more

It's all been slowly worsening since I started the first Aurora Teagarden novel. The first one was brilliant, the second good, and the third... meh.
In this book, what should be a sub-plot, Aurora's swift romance with a new older beau, takes center stage. Honestly, I'm reading these books for the murder, not for the romance. And I admit that at times I stopped, thinking "get back to the murder case, already!".
And as for the murder case, it's more seedy and less of a classic whodunnit than my b...more
Better than book two, that's for sure! Finally, Roe finds a man who is enigmatic and sexy, and wh...more
Aurora is asked to show a house for her mother. While walking through the house with the newcomers, they discover the body of a rival real estate agent.
The only good thing to come from the situation was that Aurora met Martin. The two of them practically fall in love at first sight.
But, despite Roe's love life changing for the better ( at least it appears that way), the whole town is on edge. When another murder takes place, Roe starts to take action.
I think I like this book more than the previous ones because it seems Charlaine Harris has finally found that little something that makes books addictive. And this "something" is certainly sexual attraction between her characters. She did a great job describing intereactions between Roe and Martin in this book. Although I have to...more
I think Charlaine Harris must observe the residents of her small town with a notebook and pen clutched firmly in her hand. Each person feels so real that they are almost familiar to the reader. That feeling that, 'oh, I know someone who does that'. Their per...more
I am a fan of Charlaine Harris's writing, having read all the Sookie Stackhouse novels, and the Harper Connelly series are some of my favorites. (I even got met Mrs. Harris when she was in Portland last month, and I wa...more
Seriously DO NOT CHASE DANGER. DO NOT BREAK INTO A MURDERERS HOUSE. CALL THE DAMN POLICE!
Also this book made me feel like I'd been banished to adverb hell for awhile. The dialogue tags almost always had an adverb to explain further what the words meant (because apparently understanding the words themselves mea...more
Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college (Rhodes, in Memphis) Charlaine was wr...more
