Title: Real Murders
Series: Aurora Teagarden #1
Author: Charlaine Harris
Genre: Cosy Mystery
Synopsis: 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.

This totally surprised me! I usually feel a bit meh about cosy mysteries but this was great. I guess I just found the one that works for me. This was originally published in 1990 and you can definitely tell. Woman are portrayed quite differently now as opposed to back then in genre fiction but the book is still very enjoyable.
