I do highly recommend this book,
This review is from: The Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Omnibus 1: Real Murders, A Bone to Pick, Three Bedrooms One Corpse, The Julius House (AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERY) (Hardcover)
When a thick heavy book arrived and I saw that it was by Charlaine Harris my initial thought was what a pity, for it is a beautiful book, and I love handling and reading beautiful books. But my knowledge of Charlaine Harris is that she writes Vampire mysteries and I have an aversion to people that want to suck my blood and so I have always given the books a wide berth. However, it is such a lovely produced book that I just wanted to handle it, and so I decided to give it ago, and discovered that it featured amateur sleuth Aurora Teagarden, a five foot nothing thirty year-old. I won't deny that she took a little getting used to, but I am now hooked.
Aurora Teagarden lives in the Southern town of Lawrenceton, Georgia and works part time in a library, she has several times been a bridesmaid and is looking for a husband. Her mother is a realtor of considerable success, owning her own business, dressing like a model in vogue, and Aurora (Roe) feels that she falls short on several accounts, but she is a likeable heroine, kind, honest and looking for love. But what she keeps finding is corpses.
There are four volumes in this omnibus and it's been a wonderful journey to finish one book in the series and immediately start on the next. The mysteries have some delightful twists and `A Bone to Pick' the second in the series, is certainly bizarre. I do highly recommend this book.
