I have just finished reading this installment of the Aurora Teagarden series and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is, in my opinion, the best so far.

In 'Three Bedrooms, One Corpse' Aurora begins working at her mother's real estate firm, and stumbles across the body of a fellow Realtor during her first house viewing. When another Realtor is found dead during a viewing, and her new love interest is placed under suspicion, Roe begins to investigate the world of real estate and the employees of the local firms, including the one owned by her mother. A surprise ending leaves you longing to know what happens in the next installment!

I would recommend this book to anybody who has begun reading the Aurora Teagarden series. It is an easy read that can be picked up any time of day and is easy to get into. I am looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Aurora Teagarden, having given up her part time job in the library on a whim, is trying to decide whether to become a realtor (estate agent for UK readers). Unfortunately the first house she visits with clients contains the carefully arranged corpse of a fellow realtor which is enough to put anyone off the job before they've even started. The client however is another matter and Aurora falls in love on sight with Martin Bartell.

I enjoyed this fast paced mystery story with its frightening ending. Aurora is an entertaining narrator and is far from perfect which makes her all the more human. I was not wholly convinced by the romance but I thought the characters were well drawn and the murderer definitely creepy.

If you want light reading in the crime and mystery genre then try the Aurora Teagarden series which started with Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Novel (AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERY) and A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Novel (AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERY) and continues with The Julius House: An Aurora Teagarden Novel (AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERY) All four stories can also be found in one volume The Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Omnibus 1: Real Murders, A Bone to Pick, Three Bedrooms One Corpse, The Julius House (AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERY)

I was not sure if I was going to enjoy this book as at the start it was too American and all I could see were those 1980s soaps but once I had read a couple of chapters and the characters had been drawn I found the plot well developed and the murders a bit grisly but not too bad. I did fall for the red herrings and of course did not guess who eventually was found to be the killer. I liked the idea of a former librarian being into investigating and how lucky her mother was an estate agent in English terms. The women in the plot apart from Roe did sound awful and I found that very amusing so does that mean that Americans also dislike estate agents? The book was easy to read and kept my interest and I found a need to get another chapter read more quickly than some books. The book appears to paint a glamorous picture of life in the outskirts of a big city but we all know that is fiction. All told I will look out for another Charlaine Harris book and think if you like a grisly murder with a bit of sex thrown in then this is a good read.

Aurora's estate agent mother has problems - thefts from houses up for sale, dead bodies found in two of them. Usually so unflustered, she now is a bit - especially as the corpses are those of her staff.

Aurora (now ex-librarian) as usual relates, this third novel in the series immeasurably better than the second. Some may feel too much attention is given to showering, attire and hairstyles, but tiny Aurora is desperate for a worthy husband and wants to look her best.

Quite intriguing and enjoyable, until the very end - a contrived violent climax the result of incredible silliness by the culprit and total stupidity on Aurora's part.

This early Charlaine Harris seems to pre-date mobile phones (which would have made a real difference in several sequences), but contains aspects to become very familiar - not least a horrendous battering for her heroine. There are interesting insights into the work of estate agents (in America, realtors) - convincing detail a feature that enhances all her works.

A bit tame compared with the later Sookie and Harper novels, but this gentle offering is pleasant enough.
