Aurora "Roe" Teagarden works as a librarian in her hometown of Lawrenceton, Georgia. She is also the building manager for the townhouse community she lives in that her mother owns. But, Roe has a passion -- it's crime. So, she's a member of Real Murder, a group that meets monthly to discuss a real murder and whether they believe the murderer was indeed caught or who the murderer could be. It's all interesting and harmless intellectual fun until someone starts to murder the members of Real Murders and setting up the scenes to match historical cases. Now it's a case of finding the murderer before he or she kills again. From official release/information:
From back of book: The First Aurora Teagarden Mystery.
With those fellow crime buffs, Roe belongs to a club called Read Murders, which meets once a month to analyze famous cases. It's a harmless pastime--until the night she finds a member dead, 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.
