(81)Real Murders by Charlaine Harris

Librarian Aurora "Roe" Teagarden and her friends are gathering for a meeting of their "Real Murders" club.  The group gets together to discuss real murders to examine the evidence and determine if there were other possible conclusions.  Except tonight the group becomes part of their own story.  Roe discovers the body of their friend and her body is staged to look like that of the murder victim they were going to discuss that night.  Their quiet little burg soon is under the thumb of a murderer as more  victims turn up and they all are connected to the recent cases the group have recently discussed. Will Roe and the handsome mystery writer who just moved to town be able to solve the crime before more people die?

Real Murders was a cozy little mystery that is set in a cozy little Southern town. It was obviously written several years ago and references to watching a movie on the VCR was the dead give away.  But that aside, the book was quaint.  No gore.  No grit.  No edge.  It was just cozy. I think I was expecting a little more "edge" from Charlaine Harris, but it didn't keep me from liking the book.    After I finished the book I found the Hallmark movie based on the book that was buried on my DVR,  It was a little more current, but I was disappointed by some of the changes.

Bottom line - Real Murders is a "cozy" way to pass the afternoon.
