Dead Over Heels - Charlaine Harris I enjoyed this short novel. Its heroine Aurora is not your usual lady detective. She's not a detective at all; she just happens to solve a crime, and judging from this book being #5 in a series, it's not her first solved crime either. I haven't read this series before and I'm not so enamored of the story that I want to continue reading the series, but I definitely want to read back, to know what happened in books ## 1 - 4.
Although the characters in this book are kind of flat, the plot is engrossing enough to allow a few hours of pure escapism. And the beginning is ingenious:
"My bodyguard was mowing the yard wearing her pink bikini when the man fell from the sky."
Can't imagine a better first line to a cozy mystery, can you?
