Aurora's Flying High

Candace Cameron Bure in Dead Over Heels: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery (2017)

When Aurora (Candace Cameron Bure) is leaving work she is approached by Captain Burns (Craig March) who needs to talk to her boyfriend Martin (Yannick Bisson) as soon as he returns to town. The next morning Aurora is out in the garden when a plane flies low over head and a body is thrown out, landing in her garden, the body is Captain Burns. Despite trying to behave and not get involved in the case Aurora can't help herself especially with Tim (Jeremy Guilbaut) back in town and helping.

Why and who? Those are the two ingredients which are the source of most modern made for TV murder mystery movies; why was someone killed and who was the killer. Why and Who have been the foundation of all the Aurora Teagarden movies and they are again here, and the writers certainly do a good job of keeping the why and who secret for as long as possible. It is one of the reasons why "Dead Over Heels: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" ends up being more engaging than you might expect, as unlike other made for TV murder mystery movies this one keeps you guessing with a trickle of information and possibilities till eventually the case is solved. And of course I won't tell you why or who but as the storyline develops and certain characters keep on cropping up your suspicions start to form.

But on top of the murder mystery we also have the return to characters that we have got to know over the previous movies and as such we have the town's detective frustrated by Aurora's amateur sleuthing yet knows she is good. And then there is the growing relationship between Martin and Aurora with Aurora fearing he plans to propose. All of these bits are there as are newer character developments as Aurora's journalist friend and a cop start acting cutesy around each other.

What this all boils down to is that "Dead Over Heels: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" delivers all the elements which fans of this series of murder mystery movies enjoy. And whilst Aurora Teagarden movies are not my favourite murder mystery movies I have to admit that they do a good job of delivering that blend of murder mystery and catching up with friends to make "Dead Over Heels: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" entertaining.
