Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery on DVD

Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery
[DVD Real] 

Nice, classy adaptation of the first Aurora Teagarden novel by Charlaine Harris — which was one of her earlier mystery series, long before the Sookie Stackhouse books that ended up being adapted into the cable TV series True Blood.

Candace Cameron Bure is perfect as Aurora, and this TV-movie version of the story is filled with excellent character actors, familiar faces to anyone who watches TV shows that are produced in Canada (pretty much anything on the Syfy network). The mystery holds together fairly well, although there were some plot changes from the book.

Oddly, the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries cable network did this adaptation of the first book as their second Aurora Teagarden movie, and at this time they’ve produced four different TV-movies in the series. I look forward to seeing the rest.

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the rest of the Aurora Teagarden TV-movies, or other recent Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie series productions: A Garage Sale Mystery, The Gourmet Detective, Murder She Baked and The Flower Shop Mysteries.] [Also available in traditional print format.]
