Book Review of Real Murders (Aurora Teagarden, Bk 1)

Real Murders (Aurora Teagarden, Bk 1)
reviewed on


This book was unlike any other mystery I have read (just like most of Charlaine Harris' books are unlike any other vampire novel I have read, etc.). I was unable to figure out the mystery until she told us---which is very rare for me in a book. The characters are well-developed in this book, and I look forward to the second (and third...) books to see what's in store for Aurora Teagarden and her relationships.

One thing about Charlaine Harris' writing that irks me, however, is her complete lack of disregard for the "two men at once" situations she writes into most of her books. The heroines of all of her books seem to always have two men on the hook at once---but she never seems to get questioned regarding it, or have anything happen because of it... we'll see if anything comes of that in Book Two for Aurora.
