Publisher's Summary

Best-seller number five from Charlaine Harris' beloved Aurora Teagarden series places the amateur sleuth directly in harm's way. Detective Sergeant Jack Burns and Aurora never got along, and now Jack's dead body has been dropped from a plane directly into Aurora's back yard. Murder is personal this time for Aurora - but has she received a message, or a gruesome warning?

It's not supernatural, it's just super...

Charlaine Harris hits it out of the park with this suspenseful thriller. We knew she could write about vampires and werewolves, here she shows that she can write about real life as well. Aurora Teagarden is a great character in this excellent series. listen soon.

A very good book

I enjoyed this book, just as I have enjoyed all of the Aurora Teagarden series. The writing was engaging and entertaining. However, I felt that the ending was a bit far fetched. It's a good read and I reccomend it to everyone who likes cozy mysteries.

I laughed, I cried

What made the experience of listening to Dead Over Heels the most enjoyable?

I just enjoy the characters that this author creates. They are like some of my friends and I can identify with most of them. Having grown up in a small town I understand the dynamics that are going on.

What did you like best about this story?

The things that Aurora says are so real life, and she has a quirky sense of humor

Which character ??? as performed by Therese Plummer ??? was your favorite?

I really like how she reads Sooki.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Each book in the series is better than the first!!

The story was excellent and kept my attention from the first to the very end and I wanted more.

Lil bit churchy...

I read a lot of historical churchy fiction (Shardlake) and the churchiness isn’t annoying. Maybe it was churchiness together with barren lady envy of pregnant friend that was annoying. And really clean “I go to church but I’m really sexy”-ness. I don’t know. It’s a good church lady mystery...

Not as good as the movie

I don't say this often, but the book is not as good as the hallmark movie . I find Aurora to be a complainer and critical of other people . This is not how she is potrayed in the movie . So for this time… Watch the movie instead of reading the book.

Enjoyed this one very much!

Kept my interest. I love this narrator. If you enjoy a good mystery, it is easy to get hooked on this writer.
