      Boring main character. Ugly love interests. (When someone is described as having a face with "character", you know he's not bringing the sexy). But, still a fun enough book because of the murders. The murders are all copycats of famous murders of the past.I don't know if my murder radar was out or something, but I actually never suspected the killer in this story. I like when I'm surprised by murderers. It's makes it more exciting.I never suspected this guy at all. I've been getting cozy with hi [...]

      After reading all the Sookie books, and then starting this series out of curiosity, I've realized that Charlaine Harris needs to quit preaching through her characters.Both female characters, Sookie and Aurora (not sure about the other two), have mentioned more than once about not having a boyfriend and being lonely and envying people who do date, both want babies, neither one feels comfortable sleeping around, both feel they should be more religious than they are, and it gets old really fast. (B [...]

      I decided to read this on a plane trip because it seemed easy to read and get into without having to think too hard, which is good because I get sleepy on planes. I don't often read mysteries but I'm determined to read everything Harris writes. I like her other two mystery protagonists, Lily Bard and Harper Connelly, but I have to say I like Aurora Teagarden the least. Aurora is pretty plain and boring, even without her being a librarian. She lives alone and doesn't even have a pet. She's 28 and [...]

      DNF-Disappointed. Within the first two chapters there were sexual innuendos and mentions of an unmarried couple having sex often and such along those lines. God's name was also misused. There's a really good reason I don't read secular fiction and even books that were turned into Hallmark movies with a Christian actress aren't even safe to read. Never thought I'd say I enjoyed the movie of a book better than the actual book.

    5. Amy on said:

      I like reading Harris' Southern Vampire series and I am a librarian so I thought I would give her Aurora Teagarden series a mystery (Aurora is a librarian). At first I was a little overwhelmed with the cast of characters introduced off the bat (12+ characters, some significant, some not so much). I did like that the murder was discovered within the first chapter or two. It is a drag when the murder happens 1/3 of the way through the bookOverall I enjoyed this book. I was hoping that Aurora would [...]

      ***2017 Summer Lovin’ Reading List***3.5 starsA typical Charlaine Harris setting for this mystery series, a small community in the South. As per usual, Harris nails the small town details, the over-entwined lives, the importance of reputation, and the somewhat rigid social roles that people get pigeon-holed into. Not an overwhelmingly wonderful mystery, but enough to keep me reading quickly right to the end and enough to encourage me to put a hold on the second volume at the library. It also h [...]

      Such a fun and easy read with quirky characters! I hadn't heard of this series and came across it through movies Hallmark produced, which are also really enjoyable. Aurora "Roe" Teagarden is such a likeable, honest and humorous character. She feels very real to me, in her struggles and Charlaine Harris does a great job with introducing a somewhat serious murder into each story. I look forward to continuing the series and sharing in Roe's experiences.

      Good start to the series. Review to come.

    9. Stephanie on said:

      *4.5 stars*I don't often read mysteries nowadays, but I loved the narrator's voice so much, it sucked me right in. I love librarian Aurora Teagarden, her intelligence, her sense of humor, and her deeply grounded, common sense attitude combined with her barely-hidden desire for adventure. I love her mom and her community, and for once, I'm actually really enjoying the love triangle Aurora is in. (Normally, I really dislike love triangles and just have to shrug and cope with them when they appear [...]

      Sometimes you just need to read a book that gives you goosebumps. This was one of those books, filled with intrigue, mayhem, and copycat killers this book had me up half of the night last night reading and it was amazing.The MC, Aurora was wonderfully written. When Aurora laughed you wanted to laugh, when she screamed you wanted to scream, when she fainted you wanted to faint. Ms. Harris did a simply wonderful job of writing Aurora as more than a fictional character, as an individual being, with [...]

      The action started immediately, but it took me a while to get into the story. This happens to me frequently with the first book of a series. I read mystery series more for the characters than the actual plot, so I seem to spend the first book getting to know the characters. Once that was out of the way, I became more and more interested in the plot. When it took a turn I didn't see coming, it was a breathless read to the end.

    13. Kate on said:

      I wanted to read this after hearing the Aurora Teagarden books were being made into a series of Hallmark made for TV movies. I figured the series must be fun if Hallmark was basing a whole set of movies on them, and I was right! This book was cozy, funny and well written. I liked the main character, who is a 28 year old librarian who belongs to a "real murder" club. When members of the club start dying in ways that are reminiscent of famous murders, she is thrust into the middle of the mystery. [...]

      To describe this in one sentence, I would say: Fast paced story with a smidge of romance. Gotta love how Aurora didn't lose her night sleep and didn't even try to choose between two guys. Those two were just there for support. You know - a kiss here & there, helping out with exploring while investigating a crime, good for conversation while exchanging theories of the murders and motives.Since it was fast paced read (for only one evening for sure,) it felt more like a novella to me and I didn [...]

    15. Katie Bock on said:

      Like many readers, I love reading every book by Charlaine Harris. If I thought it would make her writing more prolific, I would donate $10 out of each paycheck to Ms. HarrisThat said, the Aurora Teagarden series is not the one I'd recommend to first-time readers. In it, I miss the darkness of the Lily Bard novels and the manic fun (and sex scenes!) of the ridiculously famous Sookie Stackhouse novels. However, it is nice to find a Harris novel I could recommend to Grandma - if Grandma liked murde [...]

    16. Jim on said:

      Similar to Harris' other books, but without any paranormal elements. The heroine, Aurora, is pretty upbeat & interesting. She's 28, unmarried & has an odd hobby - she's a member of a club that discusses old murders. When club members start dying, she recognizes they're reenactments of old crimes & tells the police so. They don't believe her, so she is forced into figuring out who the killer is herself, but she doesn't jump into it with both feet. Very believable the way she stumbles [...]

      This is my second book series by Charlaine Harris and first book series that wasn't a YA series or paranormal but a first regular mystery series. I did enjoyed it though along with the twist and turns of the story. I picked this book up when I found out that there was a Hallmark movie about it and thought I would read the book series.

    18. Tracy on said:

      Entertaining. Not brilliant but a good way to spend a few hours on a summer evening. I was surprised by the murderer and that is a good thing in a mystery novel.

      A small town Real Murders club in Georgia gets a shake-up when suddenly their murder club is seeing someone is staging contemporary murders to mimic the more grisly and infamous murders of the past. Aurora Teagarden leads a quiet, though slightly lonely life as a librarian in her town. She is comfortable in the knowledge that she has a routine and knows her fellow townspeople well until the night she discovers a fellow murder club member's body killed in a horrific manner and the scene and situa [...]

      I expected this book to be so much better than it was. I think I should've given it 2.5 stars. It was just ok. Aurora is no Lily Bard. She is a member of a club that reviews real murders(hence the title). Someone in their town is going around and committing murders that they have reviewed. The killer kills a member of the club, while implicating other members of the club by using something that belonged to the member as a murder weapon. I had my suspicions about one of the members, but turns out [...]

    21. Jensownzoo on said:

      I started this earlier this week but just finished it today. Already a bad sign. I thought when I picked this up that it was a mystery novel with a librarian protagonist which was written by someone who's other work I rather enjoyed. Apparently, that was not enough to avoid a bad egg. This book was sparely written, in descriptions of the setting as well as development of the characters. One or the other I could have forgiven if blown away by the remainder, but not both. It seemed like a book tha [...]

    22. Pamela on said:

      I really wish there was an option to deliberately say, zero stars. I love Ms. Harris' Sookie books so very much, that I thought I would love all her books. Well, that theory is now dead in the water. While this book isn't her first book, it is her first series, and its horrible for lack of a better word. I'm not sure I can adequately relate my disappointment. The characters are flat. They're boring, you never really get a sense that its a person relating events to you. It's like you're reading t [...]

      Actual Rating: 3.5 StarsI'm an avid "Murder, She Wrote" and Agatha Christie fan and love those types of cozy mysteries involving amateur sleuths in small towns. The cast of characters and the mysteries are usually pretty diverse and interesting. This series by Ms. Harris does fall into that category, but wasn't quite as appealing to me as I would have liked.Aurora "Roe" Teagarden was okay as a main character, albeit a little bit boring and staid for a 28-year old, but she never really did a lot [...]

    24. Laura Bang on said:

      This book is basically made up entirely of tropes that I just don't like. The worst were the two love interests who are very territory males (ugh) and the fact that the main female character has complaints and/or dislike of every other female character.Besides that, all of the characters lacked character. They felt like cardboard-cutouts of boring people. Very few details about the town either. The mystery was okay, but I just wasn't really invested since the characters were all so flat.(I coul [...]

    25. Elyse on said:

      I really enjoyed the Lily Bard series but it took me awhile to start listening to another of Charlaine Harris's series. This one is quite a different situation than Lily Bard. A murder club?! Yikes! Reminds me of the murder club in Gillian Flynn's Dark Places. A murder club is definitely a dark thing. And seem to attract a wide array of people. I loooove that Aurora is a librarian! My dream job! I was guessing whodunnit the whole book. I watched the Hallmark movie after reading the book, quite a [...]

      I enjoyed this book so much more than the Sookie Stackhouse series, primarily because I like reading stories about humans solving mysteries. Aurora Teagarden is a librarian in Lawrenceton, Georgia. She is a member of a club real murders where members get together and discuss true murders that happened in the past. But suspicions fall upon the members when a string of murders starts happening emulating some of the old murders that took place in the past. And our librarian protagonist is under sus [...]

      I'm commenting on the entire Aurora Teagarden mysteries series in this one reviewIt is an OK series. The plotlines are entertaining, but the editing, in a word, SUCKS. The names of the characters (last names) get screwed up, the spelling errors are abundant, the prose doesn't flow, and it makes you stutter as you read it. That being said, I did enjoy the series. I read five of the books in one night. Easy read. Good brain dump. Harris' Harper Connolly series is much better and with a lot fewer e [...]

      While I had no trouble getting sucked into the Lily Bard and Sookie Stackhouse series, this one just didn't do a lot for me. The main character just seemed rather dull and somewhat lifeless, as did the other characters. It was a 'trip' revisiting the 90's, though, with the talk of Chevettes and answering machines. It was a quick, easy read, not just very compelling, I'm sad to say.

    29. Linda on said:

      The first time I read this book was in 2010 and I finished it on May 2, 2010. This is my 2nd time reading it and I am really looking forward to it. Don't mind re-reading a book that is light, interesting but I love that main female character is a "librarian". Yay!!

    30. Tari on said:

      I actually read this because I had seen the TV movie and knew it would be quite a bit different. So I didn't go into it expecting much of anything to be the same except of course for the characters I already knew something about. It moved along pretty fast and was interesting to read details that would have just been too much or not keeping with the mood of the TV station. The twists and turns were good and it definitely held my interest. Since I sort of knew who did it, I wanted to see how they [...]
