NOW AVAILABLE IN AUDIO BOOK TOO - Narrated by Skyler Rankin.
I love the way Vaughan has her characters interact with each other. They are well developed and believable. Her scenes are described in such a way you can easily picture them.
Moreover, let's not forget the humor she added! Murder and humor are her trade mark, and the humor is woven into the story at the appropriate time and adds the perfect comedy relief.
I highly recommend "Over Her Dead Body" to anyone who loves a good murder mystery and some good laughs!
A DELICIOUSLY MURDER IN A SECRET SWINGERS GROUP - DEAD MEN DON'T SWING BY KAREN VAUGHAN - BOOK 4 IN THE LAURA & GERRY MYSTERY SERIES
Laura and Gerry have moved from Scarborough to North York. Death has followed them to the highrise they manage and Laura has to deal with a tenant with attitude as well as a dead one in the dumpster. Cookie the corpse magnet strikes again in this hilarious yet slightly bawdy mystery.
In this book, Laura and her husband Gerry are back dealing with another murder investigation since, as Laura explains, she's a 'corpse magnet.' This time a dead body turns up in a dumpster at the apartment complex where Laura and Gerry are managers, having fallen to his death from the balcony above. Not likely an accident—the guy is wearing boxer shorts and sporting a tricked-out stiletto in his forehead. Oh yeah, he's missing some sensitive body parts—yikes!

She looked through the opening of this enormous canopy enjoying the lovely foliage and wishing she was already deep inside.”

Story of a young man's escape from Russian ruled Poland in 1913.
Grandfather fought for his freedom not unlike the slaves who fought for their in the south around the time of the civil war. Grandfather escaped from a communist regime in Russia and Poland to make a better life for himself and his family. The things this man had to endure during his escape from what sounds like a living hell makes me realize the pursuit of happiness of the human race. A place to live in peace, freedom, liberty and justice. The author of this book is his granddaughter a lovely person who carries on her grandfathers legacy in a beautiful and endearing way. Read this short excerpt of Grandfather's life. It is humbling to say the least. A feel good read.
In nineteen-thirteen, when Lucjen finds out that he will be drafted into the Russian military, and forced to fight his friends and neighbors for the Russian Czar. He and his friend Franciszek, join twenty other people in an harrowing escape to the Americas.
Ms. Drewa's short story of her grandfather's escape holds all the fear, terror, and hardship one would expect if they themself were living through it.
I hope that Ms. Drewa turns this suspense filled story into a novella. This brief glimpse into the times leaves one begging for more.
Kudos to Viv Drewa for taking on the telling of her grandfather's journey. A must read for both history buffs and those who love adventure, and suspense
