The long awaited continuation of the Body Movers series!
Carlotta Wren's life has taken a startling turn - she's not sure what's going to happen next. So when her retail job temporarily plants her in the world of wedding planning, she's happy for the distraction - at first. The happily-ever-after setting only heightens the stress surrounding the decisions she faces about her romantic life. The three hot men vying for her attention aren't going to wait forever for her answer.
On the other hand, at least the bridal show gets her away from body moving for a while, right? Wrong. Because when grooms all over Atlanta start dropping like flies, once again, Carlotta finds herself square in the middle of a murder mystery!

My parents told me that my very first word was...BOOK! That was no surprise to me. I have always been surrounded by books.
What a disappointment. Book #6 was very exciting, ending with a surprise; then there was a long wait for #7. The possibilities were endless...so why did this book feel like a "placeholder" for the real thing? First of all, there was a lot of backstory. If you haven't read #1-6, start there. Anyone who hasn't read #1-6 won't "get" all of the dynamics, so why bore your loyal fans with what they already know? Second, most of things that did happen in this book were entirely predictable. (I won't spoil this for other readers, but I'm betting many will feel the same.) Finally, the underlying mystery wasn't very interesting or personal and the mystery that I DID want to delve into was barely examined until the very end, pretty much leaving me in the same place I was at the end of Book #6. I'll also add that I roll my eyes every time Peter Ashford comes into the scene. LOL.
This is my last book in the series. Carlotta and Wesley continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. I'm through.
What is with the reader being changed. The original books had a women with a southern accent who was awesome. This reader was bad the male voices were nasally. Would I buy it again no.
After waiting so long for this book I was extremely disappointed. First, Cassandra Campbell did not narrate, why? Maureen couldn't even pronounce "garage" right. I wanted to scream every time she said it. And the voice she used for Peter made me hate him even more than I do. Second, Wesley didn't seem to learn anything from previous mistakes. Third, we had to wait for 3/4 of the book before Carlotta got a small chance to see her father. And finally the end just sucked! Just when things are looking good for Carlotta's love life, a really dumb thing happens. I recommend not wasting a credit on this.
I have been following the Body Movers series since it started, and I have loved each one, so when 7 Brides for Bodies came out, I was so excited. That excitement soon turned to frustration and disappointment, however, once I started listening. I absolutely LOVED Cassandra Campbell's narration. I feel like she did such a good job as Carlotta, I could really picture her in my mind. I understand that change takes some getting used to, but Maureen Jones really did a horrible job. I could get over not having the same Carlotta "voice," but I feel like she really missed the mark on it all. I don't feel like she got any of the inflections, her voices for the other characters, especially Peter were equally horrible, but the absolute worse thing for me was her constant mispronunciation of words. Who mispronounces "garage?" I understand that different people have different accents, and part of Cassandra Campbell's charm as Carlotta was the slight southern accent, which worked really well since this takes place in Atlanta. Maureen Jones did not sound like a believable Carlotta, or any other character for that matter. Please try to bring back Cassandra Campbell for the next book, or I will just have to read the print version because I don't think I can really take listening to Maureen Jones butcher anymore words or characters!
Everything! She can't pronounce basic words and her portrayal of the characters is unbelievable and forced.
Yes, because I really enjoy the series, and would for it to continue.
Please bring back the previous narrator, Cassandra Campbell!
I've enjoyed this series, but I just can't stand Peter. I'm really hoping Carlotta comes to her senses soon. The guy is so boring and smothering. At this point I'd rather Carlotta just end up alone. I've really come around to Jack, but that relationship is now a mess. Coop seems to have moved on...let's hope book 8, which I hear is the last, ends on a good note.
I love a good story! If I don't have time to sit and read, I listen to an audiobook.
after waiting 4 or so years for this book, I was not impressed by the end.
I loved the other books and I enjoy the series but this narrator is so bad! She miss pronounces words, does very strange voices for the characters and is just awful. I wanted to continue with the series because I've listen to the other six but it was painful and strange to listen to this one.
Not as good a Janet Evanovich but the off key folks are OK maybe a little too real for some folks to realize. I really enjoyed the first book. But the rest leave so many unresolved issues it is like being in the middle of a soap opera. You can read the first one and skip...to reading every other one. Would be OK. That is if you like the characters. If you listen to this please note. There was a change in narrators in book SEVEN. She was terrible. She turned one southern belle into a valley girl and maintained a upper mid-western accent through out. The word garage got so annoying I almost screamed out loud. Unlike waiting with baited breadth for the next Sue Grafton...I will read the next one but don't care when it comes out.
Why in the world would they change the narator? It did not help the story and the voice for Peter was horrible! I wish I had listened the the reviews before I bought his and would have read it myself. Huge mistake!
Keep the same narator, work on the story. Don't put a book out until it adds to the series.
