So Carlotta Wren's life hasn't turned out as she planned. She didn't plan for her parents to skip bail for a white-collar crime, leaving her to raise her brother. She didn't plan on having the silver spoon ripped from her mouth and forgoing college to work retail. She didn't plan on her blue-blood fiancé dumping her. And she didn't plan on still being single 10 years later, working at Neiman Marcus, with no idea where her fugitive parents are. But she's coping.
Until her lovable brother is arrested, and the hunky cop decides to reopen her parents' case.
Her brother becomes a body mover for the morgue, and his sexy boss gets Carlotta involved.
Her former fiancé's wife (a good customer) is murdered, fingering Carlotta.
With three men in her life, Carlotta has added motivation to help bag a murderer to keep her own well-dressed body from being next on the list!
Your move: check out the rest of the Body Movers series.

It's not a great book but I did enjoy it and I liked the development of characters. Because it's a series I'll most certainly listen or read the others to see what happens to them and how the main characters handle their parents abadonment.
I prefer a series for traveling; one that is fun, entertaining, and clever to the point of distraction.
This is a book, yes, but the story is notably missing. It appears to be the introduction (only) of the series, the set up, so to speak, which has been stretched to fill the book by using lots of page-filler words. Had it been a paper book, I would have done some major skipping. I wasn't drawn into it, but instead felt as if I had to stand outside and just look in windows where there were mannequins being moved around from point A to point B. It has a familiar and underlying style of a dime-store romance novel, and that is reason enough for me not to pursue book #2. This one was a waste of my time and money.
I really enjoyed Body Movers. I found it to be pretty funny with a good story line and I had not figured out the killer before the end. I enjoyed the narrator also. I will be continuing with this series.
I really enjoying this series. I think the narrator does a great job. The only complaint I have, is series seems to be drawn out. I have completed 5 of the books and have book six, mostly complete. I thought six was going to be end, but looks like at least one more book, maybe even more.
CAROLTTA AND HER FAMILY GIVE A GOOD STAGE FOR INTERACTION WITH DANGER AND MYSTERY. THE CHARACTERS ARE REALISTIC AND EXCITING
It's not a book full of surprises or witty turns of phrases, but it's a decent listen. The author refers to characters as "the woman" or "the man" so often that it is distracting (and makes you wonder if her editor was asleep at the wheel). But, it's perfectly fine for an easy listen.
