“With a wealth of witty descriptions,”* #1 New York Times
bestselling author Charlaine Harris produces an Aurora Teagarden Mystery to treasure. When a Hollywood film crew descends on the small town of Lawrenceton, Georgia, part-time librarian “Roe” gets a behind-the-scenes look at moviemaking—and reprises her role as an amateur sleuth…
It’s been nearly a year since her husband Martin’s death, and Roe Teagarden is still in mourning. All she wants is to be left alone to grieve—but that becomes impossible when a movie company arrives in Lawrenceton. They’ve come to make a film based on a book written by her onetime boyfriend Robin Crusoe, a book that detailed their shared investigation of a series of murders that occurred years before.
The locals are delighted. Roe is not. But Robin is beginning to win her over when the lead actress—who is playing Roe—is killed. Once again, the two of them join forces to thwart a killer—without knowing that Roe herself is the next target…
