Barbara Colley, author of the Squeaky Clean Charlotte LaRue mystery series says:

“A TALENT FOR MURDER gives a whole new meaning to the term small-town busy bodies. Fun and a bit quirky, this terrific cozy mystery by Teresa LaRue is full of memorable characters and enough suspects to keep you guessing until the end. A wonderful debut!”

A TALENT FOR MURDER simply oozes Southern charm and attitude …
