This is the third movie in the Aurora Teagarden Mystery series. Aurora Teagarden is a beautiful young librarian with a passion for solving murders. A member of The Real Murders Club, a group of crime buffs who meet to discuss notorious unsolved homicides, Aurora has a reputation as an expert crime sleuth in her small town. At an open house showing, Aurora meets Martin Bartell, a charismatic gentleman with a mysterious past, and happens upon the body of a local realtor who was strangled in the backyard. When the police arrive at the crime scene and open a homicide investigation, Aurora decides to launch an investigation of her own.
Gathering clues and examining evidence, Aurora discovers that a valuable painting has been stolen from the open house. When a second realtor turns up murdered in another home for sale, Aurora compiles a list of suspects connected to the town’s real estate scene, narrowing it down to those with an interest in the art world.
As Martin becomes increasingly attracted to Aurora, mounting evidence has the police – and Aurora - looking at him as their main suspect.
But, as her investigation unfolds, Aurora has other ideas. When her best friend, a local newspaper reporter, disappears, the librarian-turned-sleuth must race to rescue her from danger, solve the crime and bring the real killer to justice. And she just might find romance along the way.
