A club that reviewed and discussed old real murder crimes was the setting of the first real murder that could be connected to the group. Finding the body and knowing the need to cooperate with the police, Aurora ’Roe’ Teagarden as well as the rest of the clubs members endured the scrutiny of the investigation process. Then there was more murders, the realization that the current murders imitated the older murders left everyone in the Real Murder club either a victim or a suspect.
(***3) This is an introduction to Roe Teagarden and the Real Murder club members. There are so many characters and some of them are not fully developed yet but a great start for this as a series. I was surprised by the ending and the ’who done it’ part, there are several suspects and several hints or clues that were misleading as well as a few that were not. A quick and easy read, a mellow suspense and not too graphic with the crime scenes.
