Real Murders: Aurora Teagarden Mystery, #1

Real Murders (Aurora Teagarden Mystery, #1) Real Murders by Charlaine Harris

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I started this series with book #2, so I had to go back and catch up. I like the device of a group of people who are interested in old murders. The club Aurora belongs to studies famous murders, especially unsolved murders and discusses them, only this meeting was very different from previous ones. This night someone was murdered and arranged to mimic a famous murder and a member was the victim. As the plot progresses, two things become apparent; someone was killing members of the group and the murder had to be someone IN the group.

Aurora Teagarden is the main character and she is very appealing. The surrounding cast are not as well developed, but are interesting and become more developed as the series goes on. I liked the mix of characters and look forward to reading more of Harris' books.
