Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery (2015) Rated NR

A librarian hosts a Murder Mystery book club, but when the members start dying like the characters in the books they are reading, she must uncover the murderer before the club has another victim. Based on the book by Charlaine Harris. Starring Candace Cameron Bure, Marilu Henner, Lexa Doig

This is the second film that Hallmark has done for the Aurora Teagarden series.  I didn’t watch the first one, Bone to Pick, yet, but I have it on my DVR.  That said, I did feel a little out of the loop as far as references to past event and people were concerned. I also thought there were too many characters, but maybe I wouldn’t have felt so overwhelmed had I seen the first film, where several were introduced.

What I did enjoy was watching Candace Cameron Bure in the role of  Aurora Teagarden. She seemed truly fascinated by the mystery, yet she expressed great compassion for the victims involved. The film also manages to keep the tone light, despite the heavy subject matter.  There is also a building sense of urgency as Teagarden seeks out the murderer. This is a film worth a watch.
