Delighted by a recent inheritance, librarian Aurora Teagarden turns her hand to real estate, but her new profession is threatened when she stumbles upon a corpse while showing her first house

Blackwell North Amer
It's a simple if shocking question, and former librarian Aurora Teagarden is just the person to find the answer.
Basking in an inheritance that makes her financially independent, Roe's looking for a new occupation. Her days as a librarian are over. Real estate might be fun, she thinks. And who better to teach her the tricks of the trade than her Lauren Bacall look-alike mother, Aida Brattle Teagarden Queensland, who happens to own one of the major real estate firms in town?
Signing on as an apprentice, Roe agrees to show an expensive house to some out-of-town clients. The house has its charms, but the clients are not too thrilled with what's been left behind in the master bedroom: the corpse of real estate woman Tonia Lee Greenhouse.
And Tonia's only the first victim. It quickly becomes clear that the killer is someone familiar with the real estate community in Lawrenceton, someone who has access to the houses that are on the market.
Roe's not too sure she likes real estate, after all. She hadn't counted on murder. But she definitely likes her well-to-do client, Martin Bartell. In fact, it may be love at first sight.
With memorable characters and lots of small-town southern charm, this witty and wise mystery proves that author Charlaine Harris is among the best of the new generation of crime writers.

In this book, Aurora Teagarden decides to try her luck at real estate only to find the body of one of the staff at her mother's real estate office dead in the house she has to show. She meets Martin Bartell, while showing the house and it is love at first sight. While she is getting used to her new job and boyfriend another murder happens. Roe seems to be where a body shows up. She is now looking at her co workers as possible murderers. Another very good book in this series.

still trying to decide if I like this heroine or not. Aurora Teagarden #3. She was in a mystery club, discussing old murders, and now, has "fallen" across another personal murder. Her love life has more interest to her, than the murder, I feel.

This book was good, but I have to say that I started losing interest in the series after this one. I found the Roe-Martin relationship to be a bit boring. I don't really like the changes in Roe once she gets invested in the relationship. So yes, I enjoyed the book, but now that I've read past it, I have mixed feelings.

This is a great Roe Teagarden mystery. The mystery is fascinating and thought-provoking, with a couple neat false leads. Roe remains one of the most winsome characters and I really like the Roe-Martin relationship.

This is a cozy mystery series. I was originally interested because I enjoy Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. I don't like this series as well; and I was disappointed that the main character, Aurora Teagarden, is only a librarian for the first book in the series.

Aurora Teagarden tries her hand at selling houses to possibly take over her mother's million dollar real estate business should she retire. Along the way murders happen to the real estate agents. Extremely excellent read. Charlaine Harris you go girl! I am never disappointed with your books. I highly recommend this series for the murder mystery lover.
