After inheriting a modest fortune, Aurora Teagarden decides to try her hand at being a real estate agent, working at her mother’s agency. Her first assignment is to show a local mansion to dashing newcomer Martin Bartell. But when they discover the body of a rival real estate agent in the master bedroom, Roe quickly realizes her new profession is more dangerous -- and exciting -- that she ever imagined.
Roe begins her own investigation of the murder, even as sparks fly between her and Bartel. When a second real estate agent is found murdered, Roe suspects the killer may be closer than she thought. She will have to use her natural sleuthing skills to unmask the murderer before another empty house for sale becomes a crime scene.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris comes an unforgettable cast of charming characters and an intriguing puzzle to solve. Real Murders, A Bone to Pick, Three Bedrooms, One Corpse and the rest of the Aurora Teagarden mysteries have been adapted into film for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
At loose ends after her adventures in A Bone to Pick , former librarian Aurora Teagarden pitches in to help her mother Aida, a busy real estate agent in Lawrenceton, Ga. On her first unofficial showing of a house, Aurora discovers the naked corpse of a rival realtor in the master bedroom. Somewhat daunted, Aurora and her no-nonsense mom determine that the culprit must be another real estate agent--someone who could have gotten the key from Aida's office without raising suspicion. Then the body of another broker is discovered in another house for sale. Adding to Aurora's distress is her growing attraction to mysterious Martin Bartell, whose company has transferred him to Lawrenceton to reorganize its plant. Plucky, charming Aurora must choose between the dependable, uncomplicated Episcopalian minister whom she has been chastely dating and Martin, whose responsibility for laying off workers makes him dangerous to know. Meanwhile she and her mother question Aida's staff, other brokers and friends to determine who killed the realtors. With the disbanding of the Real Murders Club (which informally rehashed true crime cases), Aurora has time to sleuth to her heart's content in this high-spirited Southern cozy. Mystery Guild alternate.
