"In the first installment of the Aurora Teagarden series, Real Murders, the small town of Laurenceton, Georgia, was beset by a series of horrific murders. Librarian Aurora Teagarden teamed up with true-crime writer Robin Crusoe to catch the killer, and the results of their investigation have gone down in Laurenceton history. Now Robin is back in town, set to begin filming the movie version of the terrible events of so many years ago. Of course he's not alone- he brings with him a cast and crew the size of which nearly overwhelms the tiny, excitement starved town. Roe is disturbed to discover that the film's crew includes her stepson, who despises her, as well as an actress set to play her in the film. Everyone in Lawrenceton suddenly goes movie crazy, mentally composing awards-accepting speeches while prancing around the fringes of the set awaiting discovery. Roes' not so crazy about the whole thing... and neither is a secret, vicious murderer. When bodies start dropping, it's up to Roe to reprise her role as an amateur sleuth and stop the carnage before it gets out of hand."

That part disappointed me, but the rest was good....Continua
