Three Bedrooms, One Corpse (#3)

Previous: A Bone to Pick | Next: The Julius House


Aurora Teagarden’s decision to become a real estate agent turns out to be a life-or-death choice in this mystery from #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris.

Aurora “Roe” Teagarden had always worked for a living, until an unexpected legacy gave her the money to quit her librarian job. Now, with time on her hands, she decides to try selling real estate. Her mother, after all, is Lawrenceton’s premier real estate agent, giving her a head start on this new career!

But at her first house showing, Roe discovers the naked corpse of a rival broker in the master bedroom. When one of her mother’s colleagues falls under suspicion, Roe is determined to clear his name. 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…


“Nicely done Southern small-town ambiance, a torrid affair sensitively handled, and breezy, unpretentious style.”


“Clearly focused plot, animated description of character and real estate, and sparkling prose commend this breath of fresh air to all collections.”
