Charlaine Harris Books Overview
Though a small town at heart, Lawrenceton, Georgia, has its dark side and crime buffs. One of whom is librarian Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden, a member of the Real Murders Club, which meets once a month to analyze famous cases. It’s a harmless pastime until the night she finds a member killed in a manner that eerily resembles the crime the club was about to discuss. And as other brutal ‘copycat’ killings follow, Roe will have to uncover the person behind the terrifying game, one that casts all the members of Real Murders, herself included, as prime suspects or potential victims.
Death comes calling on a small town librarian whose life is passing her by. Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden’s fortunes change when a deceased acquaintance names her as heir to a rather substantial estate, including money, jewelry, and a house complete with a skull hidden in a window seat. Roe concludes that the elderly women has purposely left her a murder to solve. So she must identify the victim and figure out which one of her new, ordinary seeming neighbors is a murderer without putting herself in deadly danger.
Third in the Aurora Teagarden series, one great new look. Deciding if she wants to go into real estate becomes a life or death choice for Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden. A naked corpse is discovered at her first house showing. And when a second body is found in another house for sale, it becomes obvious that there is a very cool killer at large in Lawrenceton, one who knows a great deal about real estate and maybe too much about Roe.
Love at first sight turns into newlywed bliss for former librarian Aurora Teagarden until violence cuts the honeymoon short. Wealthy businessman Martin Bartell gives Roe exactly what she wants for their wedding: Julius House. But both the house and Martin come with murky pasts. And when Roe is attacked by an ax wielding maniac, she realizes that the secrets inside her four walls and her brand new marriage could destroy her.
When death comes from out of the blue, part time librarian ‘Roe’ lands smack in the middle of a baffling murder case in the latest Aurora Teagarden mystery from 1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris. Roe never liked Detective Sergeant Jack Burns, but she never wanted to see him dead especially not dropped from a plane right into her own backyard. Luckily, even Lawrenceton, Georgia’s, finest know that Roe couldn’t possibly be in two places at once, so her name is crossed off the suspect list. But then other strange things happen around Roe, ranging from peculiar her irascible cat turns up wearing a pink ribbon to violent her assistant at the library is attacked to potentially deadly her former lover is stabbed. Clearly there is a personal message in this madness that Roe must decipher before it is too late…
Charlaine Harris’s beloved amateur sleuth, liberated Southern belle Aurora Teagarden, makes her long anticipated return in this charming mystery about family secrets and small town intrigue. Everything in Roe’s life finally seems to be going her way. She’s newly and quite happily married to Martin Bartell, happy to be back at her part time job at the library, and settled into her dream home just outside Lawrenceton, Georgia and there haven’t been any dead bodies in Roe’s life for quite a while. But when mild mannered Darius Quattermain goes crazy in her backyard when he should be stacking firewood, it turns out to be just the first in a string of troublesome events. The next is the arrival of Martin’s flighty niece Regina, who shows up unannounced with a baby no one knew she was expecting. Before anyone can figure out what’s going on, Regina disappears, leaving behind her baby and her husband, Craig, whose brutally murdered corpse is discovered on the outside steps of Roe and Martin’s home. Now the existence of the baby is only the first question of many such as, Where did Craig come from? Who went after him with the ax? And why? Roe and Martin abandon the sunny warmth of Georgia for snowy Corinth, Ohio, hoping that tracing Regina and Craig’s steps will get them some answers. In this fifth book in Charlaine Harris’s series blending mystery, humor, and a hearty helping of Southern charm, there’s just no telling what they’ll find.
In the first installment of the Aurora Teagarden series, Real Murders, the small town of Lawrenceton, Georgia, was beset by a series of horrific murders. Librarian Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden teamed up with true crime writer Robin Crusoe to catch the killer, and the results of their investigation have gone down in Lawrenceton history. Now Robin is back in town, set to begin filming the movie version of the terrible events of so many years ago. Of course he’s not alone he brings with him a cast and crew the size of which nearly overwhelms the tiny excitement starved town. Roe is disturbed to discover that the film’s crew includes her stepson, who despises her, as well as an actress set to play her in the film. Everyone in Lawrenceton suddenly goes movie crazy, mentally composing awards acceptance speeches while prancing around the fringes of the set awaiting discovery. Roe’s not so crazy about the whole thing…
and neither is a secret, vicious murderer. When bodies start dropping, it’s up to Roe to reprise her role as amateur sleuth and stop the carnage before it gets out of hand. It’s no problem for the beloved small town librarian in this wonderfully cozy installment in the adored Aurora Teagarden mystery series.
On the way to a lunch meeting of her local book discussion group, the Uppity Women, small town Southern librarian Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden is shocked and dismayed to find her sister in law Poppy lying bloody and dead right outside her own back door. Poppy had her flaws, certainly she and her husband were having trouble staying faithful to each other but she didn’t deserve to be so brutally murdered. Investigating a case like this is never easy, of course, given the gossipy atmosphere of any small town, what with Poppy and her husband’s extramarital affairs, the local police detective who also happens to be a former boyfriend of Roe’s and his seemingly unresolved feelings for Poppy, and the need to protect Poppy’s family. But Roe is also coping with a burgeoning romantic relationship as well as the sudden appearance of her teenaged half brother. All in all, it’s a lot for one woman to have on her plate, even one as together as Roe. Longtime readers and new fans alike will delight in Roe’s exploits as she employs her impeccable knowledge of small town politics and enchanting Southern charm to solve the crime in this wonderful installment of Charlaine Harris’ terrific cozy series.
Lily Bard is a loner. Other than the day to day workings of her cleaning and errand running service, she pays little attention to the town around her. But when her landlord is murdered, Lily is singled out as the prime suspect, and proving her innocence will depend on finding the real killer in quiet, secretive Shakespeare. From the Paperback edition.
There’s something rotten in Shakespeare…
Lily Bard was running from shattering memories when she moved to Shakespeare, Arkansas. Now cleaning houses pays her bills. Working out helps her heal. Still protecting her scars, she hides a hard body and impressive skill at martial arts under baggy sweats. And nobody knows how strong she is until racial violence has her looking behind closed doors for a killer doors to which a housecleaner might have the key. When Lily uses her training in goju to help a black man jumped by white teens, she does it for justice…
only to hear he’s been abducted and beaten to death a few weeks later. Then a bodybuilder is killed at her gym. Both incidents jar Lily’s need for security and refuge. Looking into closets, sweeping under rugs, she soon uncovers enough dirt to confirm that something sinister is growing in her adopted town. Getting involved could endanger her life. But Lily is seeing a new man and dreaming new dreams. And no one can make this strong woman run again.
What makes Charlaine Harris’s Lily Bard novels stand out among traditional cozy mysteries is the decidedly noirish spin she puts on the seemingly typical charming southern town of Shakespeare, Arkansas, and on her heroine. Lily Bard, a karate devotee by choice and a cleaning woman by trade, is a woman with a dark past; she’s fiercely protective of her independence and reserved about herself. In short, Lily makes a refreshing, compelling amateur sleuth. In Shakespeare’s Christmas, Lily’s third appearance, she heads home to Bartley, Arkansas always an uncomfortable scenario for the introverted Lily for her sister Varena’s Christmas wedding. But Lily’s got more to worry about than being a bridesmaid for a sister to whom she’s no longer close. Soon after she arrives in Bartley, Lily’s private detective boyfriend shows up too, and not just for moral support: He’s investigating a four year old unsolved kidnapping. Try as she might, Lily can’t help but get involved when she discovers that the case hits dangerously close to home for Varena’s new husband is the widowed father of a girl bearing a remarkable resemblance to the vanished child.
Welcome back to Shakespeare a charming Arkansas town with endless back roads, an eclectic mix of residents, and a dollop of noir. Featuring cleaning woman/karate expert Lily Bard, Charlaine Harris’s series puts a unique spin on the traditional cozy to create mysteries that ‘work on every level. The writing and plotting are first rate and Lily is appealing in her own prickly way’ Washington Times. In the latest installment, Lily discovers lifelong Shakespeare resident Deedra Dean murdered inside a car parked in a woodsy area outside town. Determined not to get involved, Lily wants to leave the police work to Sheriff Marta Schuster and her team of deputies, and concentrate on cleaning, high kicks, and her boyfriend Jack’s impending visit. But when Deedra’s notoriously promiscuous lifestyle provides an extensive list of suspects but very few clues, Lily has no choice but to resume the roll of amateur detective and join the investigation. In this fourth book in Charlaine Harris’s highly acclaimed and darkly compelling series, Lily Bard delivers a hard hitting mix of Southern charm and street smarts, a combination so alluring that long time readers and newcomers will be dying to visit Shakespeare again.
Cleaning woman and karate expert Lily Bard is a woman with a complicated past. Trying her best to cope with her terrifying memories and horrible nightmares, she decides to join a weekly group therapy session in her hometown of Shakespeare, Arkansas. At first, Lily can hardly believe the number of her fellow Shakespeareans that share her life experiences. As it turns out, the group members’ feelings aren’t the only things that need sorting out they assemble for a session and find a woman dead, killed in bone chilling fashion and deliberately left on display to send a twisted message. Who would commit such horrendous crime, and who is the intended recipient of the message?Before long, Lily becomes embroiled in this disturbing murder and its aftermath, one in which the brutal killer’s motives are entirely unclear. The truth is, the situation has dredged up more than a few of her own terrible secrets, and she may not be able to rest until she can untangle the who and why of this terrible crime. But can she accomplish this before the killer strikes again, and before her nightmares send her over the edge? Shakespeare’s Counselor is the most complex and absorbing installment yet in Charlaine Harris’s engaging, original, and more than slightly dark mystery series.
