Murder at the Book Club
Aurora Teagarden (Candace Cameron Bure - Journey Back to Christmas) is not just a book lover she is also a huge fan of crime novels and runs a regular book club for fellow fans of crime literature. But then the wife of one of the members of the group is killed and it mysteriously mirrors a murder in a book they were going to be discussing. And it doesn't stop there as other members of the book club also seem to become targets and everyone in the club is a suspect, whilst for Aurora it gives her a great chance to use her knowledge from all the crime books to try and solve the crime.
What have Candace Cameron Bure and Lori Loughlin have in common? Some might mention they are both attractive and I am sure those who watch movies made for TV will say they have appeared in many TV movies since they were both young. But they have another thing in common, they have both played amateur sleuths with Loughlin playing the crime solver in the "Garage Sale Mystery" TV movies and Candace Cameron Bure starring as a crime solving book lover in "Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery", which I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be the first in a series of Aurora Teagarden movies.
What that means when it comes to "Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" is that we are in the realms of the light with Aurora being comically determined in trying to solve the crimes even when she has the police getting angry at her. And in typical fashion she is the one who keeps on investigating even when the police thing they have solved the case. It is all extremely typical but for fans of Hallmark murder mystery movies, those which feature likeable characters or who in particular like Candace Cameron Bure will enjoy this. As such I am not going to waste time and effort really mentioning the crime because it is little more than a vehicle for Candace Cameron Bure to shine as Aurora which she does.
What this all boils down to is that "Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" is a fun but typical Hallmark murder mystery movie where we have a civilian solving a crime in a semi comical manner. For those who are a fan of Candace Cameron Bure or have enjoyed movies such as "Garage Sale Mystery" this will be right up your street.
