Title: A Bone to Pick : An Aurora Teagarden Mystery
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Release Date: June 7, 2016
Time: 86 minutes
Librarian Aurora Teagarden is known around her small town as a master sleuth. When her friend Jane unexpectedly dies and leaves Aurora everything in her will, she also leaves a troubling murder mystery. It is up to Aurora to piece together the clues and solve the murder before she becomes the next victim.
I’ve watched three different Hallmark mystery series recently, and Aurora Teagarden is the one I’ve enjoyed the most. And it’s mainly because of the main character (Candace Cameron Bure), who is adorable, and I think fits this part perfectly. You may remember her as D.J. Tanner from Full House, or have recently seen her on Fuller House.
I also feel as if the mysteries themselves are a bit deeper than the other series, with more twists and turns.
Another reason why I enjoyed this movie so much is that she’s a librarian, is part of a True Murders book club, and solves mysteries. All three of those are things that appeal to me. If I could choose a book character’s life, hers would be very high on my list.
One thing that amused me greatly is the cameo of Charlaine Harris’s books in a library scene during the movie. Charlaine Harris is the author of the Aurora Teagarden mysteries, and it was actually her first series, long before Sookie Stackhouse (aka True Blood) or her Midnight, Texas Trilogy. You can read my reviews for the trilogy by clicking on a book number; Book 1, Book 2, Book 3.
If you enjoy reading Cozies, or like watching mysteries without blood or gore, you should definitely check this one out.
