5) Real Murders by Charlaine Harris

The Blurb :

Though a small town at heart, Lawrenceton, Georgia, has its dark side-and crime buffs. One of whom is librarian Aurora "Roe" Teagarden, a member of the Real Murders Club, which meets once a month to analyze famous cases. It's a harmless pastime-until the night she finds a member killed in a manner that eerily resembles the crime the club was about to discuss. And as other brutal "copycat" killings follow, Roe will have to uncover the person behind the terrifying game, one that casts all the members of Real Murders, herself included, as prime suspects-or potential victims.

My Thoughts :

Best known for her Sookie Stackhouse Vampire series, Charlaine Harris actually has more mysteries under her belt than you would think. I have of course read them all but I decided to revisit this series via audio book. After all with so many books to read I will never get around to reading these again but listening to them is very doable.

The plot is well laid out and you don't really manage to guess who it is till the main character finally puts the pieces together. I was very happy listening to this one and couldn't even remember much about the story seeing it has been a while since I read the books. It was a great story and audio to listen to. I even found myself not reading my actual book to find out what happened next in this story. Quite addictive!

Aurora Teagarden is just like the other female lead characters Charlaine has presented us with. Sookie, Lily, Harper and Aurora could be sisters and I love each and everyone of them. Proper women all in small towns with the most amazing secrets and strange characters. While Sookie and Harper have the paranormal to keep her lives exciting the others have murders.

It looks like this series will be taking up all my audio listening time in the upcoming weeks. I already have the second and third book ready on my iPod and I intend on starting another this week. If you haven't checked out Charlaine's other books then you really should. She writes a super mystery.

I got hooked on Charlaine Harris books loooong before Sookie, and Aurora and Lily were my intros to Harris's mysteries. LOVE THEM! I reread both series in the last year, and had a blast with the revisit.

So tickled to see your review! I highly recommend these books!
