Aurora Teagarden has never forgotten the first murder case she got involved in. The serial killer terrorized Lawrencetown and she was right in the middle of things. Now the story is about to hit the small screen and a film crew and everything that comes with it is in town to shoot scenes from Roe's life.

Roe isn't pleased about the whole circus but can't help getting involved. Her ex, Robin, wrote the book that was made into the screenplay and her stepson has a role in the production. Also an Emmy award winning actress is playing the part of Roe and wants to get to know her. So of course Roe obliges and then things start to get complicated.

The famous actress is found dead and Roe is threatened. Roe starts to have feelings for Robin again but isn't sure if she really wants to give up her widow status as well as her house. There is never a dull moment in Roe's life and if there is a body to be found you can be sure she is close by. Hopefully this time she won't be the body being found.

Last Scene Alive is a brilliant as the previous books in the series and as always kept me guessing till the end. Roe was different in this book and rightly so after everything she has been through. However this time I found her more likable and not as boring. It was also great to see how the other people in town are getting on and to revisit some of the past. The last few books centered around Roe's new life and it was nice to go back to the good old days.

This book, if I remember rightly, is the last but one in the series that is being re-released and I am now keen to see how the author finishes the series off. Charlaine Harris is an amazing author and even though this series is not in the least paranormal, written before her vampire series raise to fame, it is still worth reading if you like the author.

Maybe I'll give this series another try. I read two of them, I think this one might have been one of them. I wasn't overly enamoured with them, but kept up with the rest of Charlaine's series and stand alones. I love everything else she's written.
