Summary

Librarian Aurora Teagarden reckons she knows everything about her fellow townsfolk, including which ones share her interest in the darker side of human nature, as she and her friends have formed a club to discuss real life killings. But fiction soon becomes fact as more and more bodies are discovered, and the similarities between prior murders and those of Aurora's fellow townsfolk become frighteningly common.

Missing Snookie

Now starting to listen to this series. Enjoyed this and just downloaded book 2. At that point I'll know if I will follow all the series- so far don't see why not.

Cheesy but a real good listen.

Pure cheese but right up my street for a light hearted crime listen. I love the small town murder genre. Almost like a more modern Murder, She wrote. Highly enjoyable.

Excellent murder mystery

If you could sum up Real Murders in three words, what would they be?

A murder mystery written with plenty of humour. The characters were easy to relate to and brought to life by Therese Plummer.

What other book might you compare Real Murders to, and why?

I really enjoyed meeting the main character Aurora Teagarden, and look forwards to the rest of this charming series.

What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The author creates a charming heroine, in Aurora Teagarden. Written with a gentle sense of humour, this is a murder mystery which will keep you guessing right to the end.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Therese Plummer's performance is faultless. She brings all the characters to life, and makes the book a real pleasure to listen to.

A short and sweet old fashioned murder

It isn't big, it isn't clever - there is no one escaping personal demons or heavy psychology. It is however satisfying and a light and enjoyable listen!

Bland

The narrator was good. I have very much enjoyed other Charlaine Harris books. The 'Midnight Texas' series was very good! I liked maany aspects of the three books and will listen to them again. I was hoping to find another enjoyable series with 'Real Murders'. But it is not for me. I might have persevered on to the next book in the hope that it improves. Going by the reviews, I don't think this will happen. I'm cutting my losses and won't pursue this series any further. However, I will keep a lookout for other Charlaine Harris books that are more to my taste. Fingers crossed.
