Real Murder (A Lovers in Crime Mystery Book 2) by Lauren Carr

When Homicide Detective Cameron Gates befriends Dolly, the little old lady who lives across the street, she is warned not to get lured into helping the elderly woman by investigating the unsolved murder of one of her girls. “She’s senile,” Cameron is warned. “It’s not a real murder.”
Such is not the case. After Dolly is brutally murdered, Cameron discovers that the sweet blue-haired lady’s “girl” was a call girl, who had been killed in a mysterious double homicide.

Meanwhile, Prosecuting Attorney Joshua Thornton is looking for answers to the murder of a childhood friend, a sheriff deputy whose cruiser is found at the bottom of a lake. The deputy had disappeared almost twenty years ago while privately investigating the murder of a local prostitute.

It doesn’t take long for the Lovers in Crime to put their cases together to reveal a long-kept secret that some believe is worth killing to keep undercover.

My Review: Real Murder by Lauren Carr


I love to read Lauren Carr's mysteries. Real Murder fits right in with her Lovers in Crime series. There are a lot of murders over the years and other crimes in two or more states. Joshua and Cameron have to figure out who did what in whose case. There are many suspects, lots of mysteries to untangle, humor and lots of ice cream. You might be able to guess parts of the stories but probably not all of where the book is taking you. Also a clean murder mystery.

I really like the characters in this series of books. While Joshua and Cameron are the main two characters there are many characters in the series that really add to the stories, and the humor including the animals.

Joshua Thorton is Prosecuting Attorney. He is also one of the last persons to talk to a Deputy before he disappeared years ago. He felt he left his friend down. He is just newly wed to Cameron. Joshua is also the father of 5 kids. The only one at home is Donny 16.

Cameron Gates is a homicide detective in neighboring state. She gets hurt on the job and given two weeks off. It does not stop Cameron from working. Cameron has a big cat that looks like a skunk. He brings a lot of humor to the story.

I enjoyed Real Murders and look forward to reading more of Lauren Carr's stories in the future.
