    1. This was the first Aurora Teagarden book I read, and I thought reading the series would make me like the character more, but instead I pretty much detest her. The mystery itself is okay, but Aurora's internal monologue drove me crazy for the entire book. I also really noticed how she's always dressing in shades of yellow, orange, brown, or dark green, and the description of the clothes make her sound like she's twenty years older than she is. The other characters also seemed to dress in these co [...]


    2. Another awesome installment in the Roe Teagarden series! The previous book was the darkest one to date, so this story started with a bit of back story and caught us up to where Roe is now. The murder mystery took a bit longer to show itself, but when it did begin the mystery was terrific and not obvious at all. I appreciate how much Charlaine Harris invests in her characters and the realness they have, due to her great writing. It makes the stories so much more enjoyable!


    3. I wanted to read this book before watching the TV movie. Although I have read other Aurora Teagarden mysteries I have not necessarily read them in order and with this one I realized the importance of reading them in order to get Aurora's history and the history of the town.This one reflects back to the first in the series. The story of the first murder mystery Aurora solves is brought back when it is being made into a movie and the movie people come to town. One of the things I like about A.T. i [...]


    4. With book 7, Charlaine Harris brings Aurora back around full circle. She's single, she's entrenched in the movie version of the events that started the series, and lo and behold, Robin Crusoe is back on the scene. But although there are many similarities between Roe then and Roe now, we're keenly aware of how much she's changed. By her own admission, she's a kick butt rich widow who's not afraid to be blunt and more than a little eccentric. As always, one thing never changes: Roe is a mini murde [...]


    5. The last one available at this time, it's better than the rest, but I wouldn't suggest reading them out of order. You can, but there is a lot of history to catch up on. She did much better at creating a mystery & not just one, yet still kept the same style. It's not quite the same kind of candy book as the first of the series & certainly showed her maturing as a writer. It's still light & engaging, a fun read with no pretensions to be anything else. A good mystery with a bit more rom [...]


    6. Maybe if I'd started with the first one of this series I would have liked this one, but it was definitely a disappointment. The main character is rather pathetic, constantly talking about her "independence" while turning to various men in her life and being rescued by other women. The mystery isn't terribly mysterious, even with multiple killers/plots. This one just isn't my cup of tea.


    7. Tras el dramático final del anterior libro de la saga estaba deseando leer más de mi carismática Roe. Estaba intrigada sobre todo por el camino por la que la llevaría la escritora y como haría que afrontase cada uno de los obstáculos puestos en medio tras la tragediaEn este séptima entrega los habitantes de la localidad de Lawrenceton se ven obligados a revivir los asesinatos llevados a cabo en el primer libro "Unos asesinatos muy reales" ya que el caótico y excéntrico mundo de Hollywoo [...]


    8. Quick read which I found by chance in the library. Read the previous books in the series and what I like is that Aurora's life isn't perfect, and she doesn't make ridiculous leaps of reasoning when solving a crime. Often it's a chance encounter or a conversation, or in some cases a blow on the head.




    9. Loving Aurora’s adventures still on book 7! Can’t wait to begin book 8! Already starting to feel anxious about what I’ll do after I finish book 10!



    10. Aurora Teagarden's past is back to haunt her, and this time it is preparing to go onto the small screen. Roe's first opportunity to deal with murder first-hand was when she was in the Real Murders group, a number of local residents of Lawrenceton, Georgia, with an interest in true crime. Things got a little out of hand when certain members decided to make true crime something more to read about. Those adventures made up the first book in this series, Real Murders.Robin Crusoe, famed author and o [...]


    11. About a year has passed since Roe's husband Martin passed away after a heart attack. In this book, Harris revisits indirectly "Real Murders", the first Aurora Teagarden mystery, with the events of that story being filmed for a television miniseries in Lawrenceton. On the scene are Robin Crusoe, a mystery writer upon whose works the film is based. Oh, by the way, Robin had also been interested in Roe at the time but subsequent events had put an end to any real relationship. Also, Martin's son, Ba [...]


    12. An Aurora Teagarden Mystery. The seventh to be precise. Roe's caught up in grieving her loss from the last book; meanwhile, a movie based on the book based on the murder from the first book of—lean into it—the Aurora Teagarden series is being filmed in town, and Roe can't get a moment of peace. Then, wouldn't you know it, there's a murder on the set.But the murder doesn't happen until about halfway through the book. This is more about Roe than it is about the mystery, and since Charlaine Har [...]


    13. I'm rounding up considerably, but I prefer that to rounding down.I haven't read all or even most of this series, but Harris makes it fairly easy to dive in anywhere. I assume that readers who have followed the series and read all the books in order will find more depth and interest in the characters than I did, but I found the characters, and the book as a whole, entertaining and occasionally intriguing.I leave it to those who have lost a spouse or other life partner to decide how well Harris po [...]


    14. This book was great! I was on shaky ground with this series after the fifth and sixth books but Last Scene Alive blew me out of the water. It may be my favourite one of the series. The plot was great, there were believable and clever sub-plots and the writing was on form.It's set around the murder of one of the cast, of the movie based on Aurora's life- and I love anything to do with acting and movies and TV and directing. It's one of my fantasy jobs to act so I really loved reading about it fro [...]


    15. Aurora is now widowed for almost a year. She is sad but ready to move on with her life. Suddenly, her long-gone love interest Robin Crusoe shows up in Lawrenceton for the filming of TV series based on his book about the murders narrated in the first Aurora Teagarden mystery "Real Murders." Martin's son Barrett appears in Roe's life too as he has a small role in the series. Filming goes on as scheduled; our heroine gets a taste of Hollywood; everything is exciting. That is until an actress who pl [...]


    16. This Aurora Teagarden mystery takes up after Roe becomes a widow. As she is still going through stages of grief and missing her deceased husband, she finds that her life has become somewhat sterile. When an old friend, Robin Crusoe comes to town along with a film crew to shoot the story of the murders Roe and her true crime book club were involved in, she finds herself unwillingly drawn into the process. When the star chosen to portray Roe is murdered, she finds herself involved in the who and t [...]


    17. Un libro más lento que los anteriores que tenían como protagonista a Roe Teagarden, pero es que era necesario. Roe tiene que superar muchas cosas y eso no es fácil, así que en este libro sacrificamos un poco de acción para verla evolucionar, sentir y se agradece. Después de 7 libros ya me parece que Roe es casi de la familia y francamente el anterior libro me gustó más bien poco, primero porque Roe ni parecía ella misma y luego por el acontecimiento final, que me cabreó mucho. Así que [...]


    18. before: This is the reason I read books in a specific order. I might not ever open this one up if it weren't "next on the stack," even though I've had it for over two years. After #6, I'm not sure why the author decided to go forward with this characterter: This was as good as #'s 1-5. I still cannot forgive the 6th book, but I'm not the forgiving type. I guess for some people grief is just another part of life and not the perminantly soul crushing experience I've always found it. Still, I read [...]


    19. Reseña completa: capitulo-26/20Decepcionada me he quedado tras su lectura. Esta no es una saga que haya comenzado a leer desde el principio y aunque se pueda leer de forma independiente he sentido desconexión con sus personajes. De todos modos no le daré una oportunidad a la saga, aunque sí a la autora con su saga de vampiros a ver si la cosa mejora en esa.


    20. The 3rd book of the 2nd omnibus finds Aurora recovering from losing her husband, and finding something new to get upset about - a movie crew has come to Laurencetown to make a film of Robin Crusoe's book about the murders featured in the first book in the series. It's more of the same smalltown observations, Roe getting all moralistic and judgemental, and solving the murder mystery again, and of course men falling in love with her despite her really odd taste in clothes and glasses


    21. I really didn't like this book either. I feel Aurora really acted out of character, especially considering how quick she was to have sex with Robin, and the "naughty" behavior she displayed. The story with Patricia didn't really make sense either, why throw that in? And since when did Aurora think Perry was gay? I was just very unhappy with this book, but I keep reading the series because I'm invested in the character and I want to see how it ends.


    22. I read this just to finish the series. I had been buying the books, but I stopped with this one because I didn't want to waste anymore money on them. In fact, I've given them all away to a friend. Roe is one of my least favorite Charlaine Harris characters ever. This series is subpar.


    23. Aurora drives to the motel to meet Robin and the others for dinner; they depart for dinner in a van; Robin and Aurora leave the dinner in a cab, which takes Aurora to her home.Next morning Aurora gets in her car and drives to the movie set.Are there editors for paperback books?


    24. More of a 3.5 because it got back to what I really enjoyed from books 1 to 3. I also feel like bringing back Robin as love interest for Aurora helped lighten her back up as a character. More fun than the last few, that's for damned sure.


    25. Read this series while recovering from foot surgery. Perhaps I've OD'd on the character at this point but this particular story was too much same-o, same-o for me.


    26. Od śmierci Martina minął już rok i Aurora w miarę się pozbierała po stracie małżonka. Jej rutyna wciąż jest ta sama: praca - dom. Do tego mieszkanie na uboczu nie pomaga wkręcić się znów w życie miasteczka. Do czasu, gdy scenarzyści z Hollywood postanawiają nakręcić serial na podstawie książki dawnego przyjaciela Roe - Robina Crusoe. A co jeszcze dziwniejsze, ma to być serial o niej i o Robinie w rolach głównych. Całe Lawrenceton jest zachwycone i podekscytowane tym, ż [...]


    27. The writing's fine2.5 Aurora (the protagonist) is not1, maybe 2 stars. Just can't get into her personality or her outlook on life. She matured a bit for this one, but she's still rather whiny for her age, not to mention foolish, considering her former membership in a murder club. If the reader can see these things coming from a mile away, how can she not?Roe's ex from many years ago, Robin, has returned from Hollywood to look in on his book (about Aurora and the murder club and their small town' [...]
