Charlaine Harris is one of my favourite authors and I have been hoping to get my hands on this series she wrote back in the 90's but they are hard to find. However they have finally been re-released and this first part in the 'Aurora Teagarden Mysteries' was well worth the wait!

Harris never disappoints and this series start had me hooked from the first page. I loved the main character 'Roe' and of course she is a normal girl from a small town with a normal job just like 'Sookie Stackhouse' and 'Lily Bard' from her other great books.

In this first part of the series 'Roe' is off to her monthly 'Real Murders' meeting. A meeting where some like minded people discuss 'real murders' and mysteries. However the meeting doesn't even start because a real murder takes place.

The murder is staged to look like a 'real murder' and then more murders happen as well as some other strange happenings. Before you know it everyone is a suspect and everyone is in danger.

Brilliant writing. Lots of twists and turns. Any Harris fan will enjoy this and any cosy mystery readers will also love this nicely thought out plot.

Now I am excited about the 2nd part 'A bone to Pick' which will be released early in the New Year!

It's weird she's so hard to find when she's so popular. My brick and mortar store only carries one of her books

Amazon and play.com are my best friends when it comes to buying books.

There is a 'british bookstore' here but the prices are way too expensive. Normal bookstores sell English books but the variety is poor.

Internet shopping rules!!! ;)
