Format: Mass Market Paperback
Diminutive librarian Aurora Teagarden learns that Robin Crusoe, a true crime writer, she worked with many years ago to solve a string of murders is returning to Lawrenceton, Georgia, USA. He is coming to film a movie based on his book about the murders. Of course, when the crew arrives, additional murders are in the future.

This is a mystery; in reality they're a number of mysteries in the book. In terms of the protagonist's extended description of her emotions and social interactions, there might be a temptation to classify this as a cozy mystery, except for the tasteful and non-gratuitous descriptions of a number of sexual encounters.

The author has no dearth of characters. In the first chapter alone she identifies, by name, between one and two-dozen characters, and in the next two chapters she probably doubles that number. New named characters are added in subsequent chapters. This has the effect of making the story seem real. It also means that unless you have a very good memory, you will need to make some notes about the characters when they first appear, as there is no indication as to which will prove important later on.

Unusually for a mystery, here the protagonist's personality was as interesting as the main plot. Ms. Harris' has the unique ability to make you feel that Aurora is a real, rather than fictional, person and talking to you as a close friend. She presents Aurora so that she's easy to like, and wish you had her as a next-door neighbor.

Considering the high quality of the writing, there were some unexpected, albeit minor, editing flaws, e.g., "of" instead of "for", "a on a" instead of just "on a", "that" instead of "than", etc. These proved to be only minor reading distractions.

This is the penultimate book of Charlaine Harris's 'Aurora Teagarden' series, (which my library does not hold), so in order to read the full series , I ordered it to read before the last book in the series was available from my library.I was mildly wary of ordering it from America, but it was in good order, with a $2.50 label on it !!
It arrived within the time allocated, in good condition.
It has Charlaine Harris's expected skill and interest for me.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Last Scene Alive is the seventh novel in the Aurora Teagarden series by American author, Charlaine Harris. Almost a year after Martin's death, Roe is going through the motions of life when Hollywood comes to town to shoot scenes for a two-part TV movie of Whimsical Death, Robin Crusoe's novel about a serial killer in Lawrenceton (see Real Murders, the first Aurora Teagarden mystery). Roe has mixed feelings about Robin's arrival, and is not at all happy about the movie, even though it is bound to benefit the town. Soon enough, she finds herself on the movie set, and much to her horror, present when the body of the murdered starlet who is playing Roe herself is discovered by her stepson, Barrett Bartell, also starring in the movie. Detective Arthur Smith, still holding a candle for Roe, gives her plenty of unwelcome advice. This installment has Roe receiving nasty mail, being attacked, buying and selling a house, rediscovering sex, getting stabbed, trying to accurately judge the reactions of actors and unmasking a terrorist. There is stalking, drugging, suffocation, assault with an Emmy, a mystery father and a disguise. As always, Harris's plot is original and her main character is highly likeable. Harris also introduces some of the characters for the next and final instalment, Poppy Done To Death. Another excellent read.
