What's the world coming to when you cant relax with a glass of ice-cold beverage in your own backyard without a body falling from the sky into your garden?
Part-time librarian and amateur investigator Roe Teagarden has good reason to ask herself this question when the remains of one of the Lawrenceton, Georgia police departments finest catapults into her flower bed. The mystery deepens as two federal agents arrive to investigate the murder. Its only when Madeleine the cat provides a clue that Roe begins to realize that using her yard as a temporary landfill may have been no accident and that Roe herself could be in terrible danger.
My Review :
My return visit to Lawrenceton via Audible was fast and furious at first. After listening to the first four books one after another I didn't have any Audible credits left and listened to something else. With my new credit I jumped on book #5, Dead Over Heels and from beginning to end I had to wonder if I had missed out this book when I read the series all those years ago.
There was only one part of the story that I really remembered but it could have also been mentioned later in the series. All the rest of the story seemed completely new to me. Nothing felt familiar and maybe, just maybe, I missed this one out? I will have to check because until now I have vaguely remembered the plot and storyline of the series.
So this felt new to me but it didn't feel bad. It was another well written Charlaine Harris cozy and I loved listening to it. The characters are interesting and the setting has become familiar and it really feels like I have been there and know the people. I can't wait to listen to the rest of the books in the series and already have them on my Audible wishlist.
If you are a Charlaine Harris fan and haven't tried her other books then you really should give them a go. Aurora Teagarden is no Sookie but they could be sisters or cousins.
