A Talent for Murder is a cozy, southern mystery filled with humor and colorful characters, with a touch of romance thrown in for added fun.

When Kate Spencer learns her aunt’s fiancĂ© is two-timing her with an old rival, she has no choice but to pass along the information to her mother. They are as shocked as the rest of the town when the rival turns up dead and the two-timing fiancĂ© disappears.

Making matters worse, the lead investigator happens to be Kate’s old boyfriend. If her aunt has any hope of being cleared, the trio must conduct their own investigation. Even if they have to alienate a few friends and tell a few lies to discover the truth.

If you're looking for a warm, cuddly, Southern cozy mystery with which to curl up, here it is. Teresa LaRue' s lovely A TALENT FOR MURDER simply oozes Southern charm and attitude ("Does she know what sort of people he comes from?") and yes, Southern judgmentalism ("low down double-digging weasel"). You've got to chuckle, because the characters are so true to life: reading this mystery is like watching a stage play [more "Arsenic and Old Lace" than "The Mousetrap"). And of course, there's got to be a murder, and all the wrong suspects are accused. There's amateur investigation, gardening, and romance. Get a cup of herbal tea, curl up in your favorite armchair, and just enjoy.
