Dead Over Heels: Synopsis Of Hallmark Movies And Mysteries Movie
She’s a librarian by day, but by night, Aurora Teagarden, who everyone calls Roe, is an overly excited crime buff who busies herself solving the latest homicide mysteries in her small town.
And when she isn’t solving crimes, Aurora Teagarden is planting beautiful pansies in her homegrown garden. But tragedy strikes while Aurora enjoys a day of girl talk with a friend as they attend to the flowers. In a scene like right out of a movie, a dead body literally drops from the sky and into her yard.
It was a close call for Roe, she could have been killed instantly. Now, she needs to find out who the dead man is and how he ended up dropping from the sky.
The victim turns out to be none other than Frederick Burns, a local detective and captain at the Lawrenceton Police Department who Roe despises. However, just because she didn’t’ like the guy doesn’t mean that she wanted to see him dead.
Captain Burns’ death was no accident, an autopsy report reveals. In fact, Burns was already dead cold before he was thrown from the plane. Since his murder, everyone in the police department has been impacted by his absence. Now someone will have to step in to fill the captain’s shoes.
To solve this case, there are a slew of suspects to consider since Burns was a cop who had to face many dangers on a daily basis. And while most people are killed by someone they know, it doesn’t seem that investigators believe that the captain’s widow is involved. Instead, Lawrenceton investigators soon zero in on Aurora as the prime suspect.
But what connection does she have to this case? Couldn’t there be someone else besides Roe who wanted to see the captain dead?
One thing is for sure, if Aurora doesn’t fit the pieces of this murder mystery puzzle together in a hurry, she just might end up in jail serving time for a crime she didn’t commit.
