Fun quick read. Story mov.ing along nicely ( )

Pretty light book to read in bed to relax during these busy times. It took me a little while to warm up to the Robin Crusoe character because of the cheesy (to me) name, but he turned out to be okay. For a while, it seems like Roe's PT job as a librarian might have been any job, but the library ended up playing a role in the mystery, which I was happy to see. All in all, a pretty satisfying story. ( )

Although I didn't intend to read more in this series, I figured (since I had the book) I'd fill in the gaps. Not a bad installment. The character is realizing more her own selfishness and at least this time Roe wasn't targeted because some other character was inexplicably obsessed with her. An ok mystery, if a bit obvious. ( )

Murder mystery, romance, loops withing loops. Fun ( )

The Aurora Teagarden books should be read in order, as the messy nature of her personal life is almost a bigger feature than the mysteries.

This one brings back a lot of the characters from the first novel, including the love interest.

I originally picked up the series because I like books that feature bookstores, libraries, etc. in their mysteries. Unfortunately, the library aspect of these books is more in name only than in the plot or theme of the books. I decided to finish out the series anyways, because I found the main character amusing and some of the writing worked for me (although too often the plots did not--sometimes I can solve the murder halfway through the book) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425228142, Mass Market Paperback)

From the New York Times bestselling author of Dead Over Heels and the Sookie Stackhouse novels.

Roe is still in mourning over her husband's death when a movie company arrives in Lawrenceton. They've come to make a film based on a book written by her one-time boyfriend Robin Crusoe, a book that detailed their shared investigation of a series of murders that occurred years before.

But when the lead actress-who is playing Roe-is killed, Robin and Roe join forces once again to thwart a killer, without knowing that Roe herself is the next target.
