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 trademark, 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! Five Stars *****
Laura Hamilton's fiance, Gerry, calls her a corpse magnet. Even if he is the one to find poor Ethel's body, he still blames Laura. Working part time as assistant building super and full time as manager of the Moose Burger Emporium, Laura's life is full. Unfortunately, dead bodies cross her path and she can't resist the urge to solve the murder. Over Her Dead Body is the second book in Vaughan's Laura & Gerry series. Funny and light hearted, it's also a murder mystery that keeps fans on the edge of their seats until the end. Vaughan's funny, sarcastic dialogue peppers the pages as the story revs up and drives onward. Her characters are wacky, dapper, sophisticated, slutty, raving lunatics or all around nice guys. Over Her Dead Body will keep you laughing all the way to the morgue. 5 Golden Acorns
