A HOOT A MINUTE IN THIS MURDER MYSTERY

Ms. Vaughan, must be a real hoot to be around, as her books are so full of twists, turns, and characters you both love and love to hate.

I adored this little bit bawdy, romantic, murder mystery. But then again, there hasn’t been one of the Laura & Gerry Mysteries that I didn’t like. I’d read anything by Ms. Vaughan, I love her writing that much.

Meet Laura in this fun first book in the series

Great first book in this fun series that I read out of sequence and still enjoyed very much. Corpse magnet, Laura, is on her own in this first book written before Gerry joins her on her misadventures. She’s a funny, sarcastic, unpredictable character who takes up sleuthing when a dead body turns up in her apartment. More than a little motivation, that’s for sure! Several secondary characters add interest along with more than a little sleaze as Laura sets out alongside Detective Inspector Jeff Gibbons to find out whodunit. I’m not going to tell you that, of course, or reveal how Laura figures it out. You need to read this book and have the fun doing that for yourself

Amazing

This book is a thrilling page turner that sucks you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat. It’s very smooth and easy to read, amazingly detailed, and unpredictable which I love because I hate figuring out a book before anything really happens. I highly recommend this book.

“The “corpse magnet” is back!” – “Dead Men Don’t Swing” (Laura & Gerry Mystery #4) by Karen Vaughan

The “corpse magnet” is back!

Dead Men Don’t Swing is Karen Vaughan’s bawdy, comedic take on amateur sleuthing. It’s book four in her Laura & Gerry Mystery series. Lots of detective lingo is delivered with wit and sarcasm by the protagonist, Laura. That’s not surprising if you’ve read Vaughan’s previous books in the series, and given the fact that the author has done a bit of stand-up comedy. 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! Things are not as they seem in this suburban Canadian apartment complex. It turns out there’s a whole lot of hanky-panky going on in this mid-rise Peyton Place, some of it pretty kinky stuff, too. There’s no shortage of pervs and perps on any floor, in addition to the ever-annoying, tenant-from-hell, Stella. As I type the name, I hear Marlon Brando screaming it at the top of his lungs in A Streetcar Named Desire. And, speaking of movies, the photographer played by Jimmy Stewart in Hitchcock’s Rear Window, would have been hard-pressed to know where to shoot first with all the action going on in this complex! Laura, studying to become a CSI, makes the best of the situation and starts racking up the A-pluses as she incorporates aspects of the investigation into her homework assignments. Of course, even an A-student can get into trouble when word gets out about the direction in which her studiousness is leading. Laura is soon stalked, badgered, and beleaguered by tenants and non-tenants alike as the ‘serpentine’ [if you read the book you’ll get my choice of words] plot twists put Laura and her husband Gerry to the test.

Right from the start you know you are hooked!

Right from the start you know you are hooked! I mean how many people wake up to find a body had been delivered to their sitting room while they slept?

This is a good mystery with some romance thrown in. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Karen Vaughan has created a great character in Laura Hamilton. She is funny, smart with a wacky sense of humour – you just have to love her! Will she be able to find out who put the body in her apartment? Who actually was the killer? There isn’t a dull moment in this book, more like a roller coaster of ‘events’ to keep you guessing what comes next!

There are lots of surprises throughout and it certainly makes you keep turning the pages. Altogether a great book, a definite to be recommended.
