Body Movers: 2 Bodies for the Price of 1 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With fugitive parents, a brother dodging loan sharks, a hunky cop who's made her outlaw family his business, and her ex-fiance back in the picture, Carlotta Wren thought her life couldn't get any more complicated.

And then:

Her fugitive parents phone home.

Her identity is stolen by a look-alike.

Her look-alike is found, well, dead.

Under suspicion for murder, Carlotta discovers that her devious double might have been bumped off accidentally — and that she could be the real target! Throw in dealing with her motley crew of family, friends and wannabe lovers, and Carlotta begins to think that jail isn't such a bad alternative after all.

Review:

"Bond's charming new Carlotta Wren mystery (after 2006's Body Movers) has all the ingredients for a chic sleuth-a-thon, from identity theft and designer clothes to dead bodies and poker. Rich girl — turned — Neiman's shop girl Carlotta was left at 18 to raise her 10-year-old brother, Wesley, after their parents, Randolph and Valerie, skipped town to avoid investment fraud charges. Ten years later, snarky Atlanta DA Kelvin Lucas has reopened the case. Grouchy love interest Det. Jack Terry wants information that Carlotta's afraid to divulge. Randolph makes a mysterious call to Carlotta and also gets in touch with Peter Ashford, her attentive ex-fianc. Wesley, an oddly likable slacker and compulsive gambler, believes in their dad's innocence, but Carlotta's not so sure. When a woman with Carlotta's car and I.D. apparently kills herself, Lucas requests a fake funeral to lure her parents back. Bond keeps the pace frantic, the plot tight and the laughs light, and supplies a cliffhanger ending that's a bargain at twice the price. Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)"

If you like romance, mystery and humor all in one book, then you are going to LOVE Body Movers 2! The men are sexy, the mystery is fun, and the story has some hilarious scenes. Stephanie Bond knows what her readers want and she definitely delivers it in this fantastic new installment in her mystery series.
