A Lily Bard Mystery: 1

Welcome to Shakespeare, Arkansas.

Lily Bard came to the small town of Shakespeare to escape her dark and violent past. So when she spots a dead body being dumped in the town green, she's inclined to stay well away. But she was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and despite her best efforts, she's dragged into the murder case.

Lily doesn't care who did it, but when the police and local community start pointing fingers in her direction, she realises that if she doesn't unmask the killer, her new life will not simply crumble. It will end.

Three Bedrooms, One Corpse

Charlaine Harris
Authors:
Charlaine Harris

Aurora Teagarden - Roe to her friends - has always worked for a living, until an unexpected legacy gave her enough money that she could quit her job as a librarian. Now, with time on her hands, she decides to try selling real estate - after all, her mother is Lawrenceton's premiere real estate agent, and she's happy to give Roe a head-start in her new career. But at her first house showing, Roe discovers a body - a rival estate broker - and to make matters worse, one of her mother's colleagues is looking decidedly guilty. When a second body is found, in another house for sale, it becomes obvious that the killer who's at large in Lawrenceton knows a great deal about real estate - and maybe a little too much about Roe. She is going to have to find out who is responsible, before she herself becomes the next bedroom corpse.
