Publisher's Summary

Will her killer fashion sense prove fatal?

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.

    "Makes me want to change my job."

    I love all of these books. I guess it helps that I'm from Atlanta and have had to suffer through quite a few TERRIBLE southern accents, and Cassandra Campbell does a great job of affecting the accent without throwing the entire south into the boonies.
    When I first bought the paperback book about 6 years ago I had expected more sex, but by the time I got engrossed in all of the men in Carlotta's life I was just as enthralled by all of the sexual tension! Jeeze.
    Anyway. I love these books. There're more coming out next year, and I can't wait. Go for it.

    Oh, and I almost never know who the "bad guy" is. It's ridiculous. I re-listen to these more frequently than I do any other books in my library.

    "I didn't hate it but not my cup of tea"

    I should start by saying that I love sci-fi and romance mixed with a good twisting plot. So when I chose this book I assumed that not having the Sci-Fi won’t be that bad since I still get 2 out of 3.

    (Spoiler alert you might want to stop reading now)...


    I was wrong - there is NO romance either (so that left me with 1 out of 3), the reason I said spoiler alert was because maybe there are some hopeless listeners out there who will listen to the whole 11hours of this book hoping that the romance is around the corner – well it ain’t.

    So for the remaining 1 (twisting plot), the book (for me personally) was slow to pick up and didn’t really until the last 1.5h (which makes it 9.5h of not very satisfying listen). The twist was alright but I just didn't care at that point. There were too many long description of going to work, working, coming back home etc.

    The book has 2 main characters that make stupid decisions and end up paying for them so it imitates the life of most folks with the knack for stupidity. Personally, I don’t like those story lines in movies or books (I will add that I don’t like the show “weeds” for this same reason so if you like that show ignore my long comment).

    "A really good series"

    This book is the first in the series. As with any series the characters aren't fully developed but they are interesting and the plot is good.

    A little romance between 3 possible suitors, a little mystery that seems to involve murder, and family drama as her parents are on the run and she tries to care for her 19 year old brother who lacks personal judgement and self-control.

    I quickly bought the second in the series and am really glad that I did.

    "Only Listened because I paid for it"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    no one - was slow - plot was predictable - main character no redeeming qualities


    Has Body Movers turned you off from other books in this genre?

    not in this genre but from this author


    How could the performance have been better?

    had some suspense , some humor ANYTHING - was truly awful


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Body Movers?

    the simpering make out sessions , the internal thoughts of the main character


    Any additional comments?

    Please don't waste your money on this one ...

    This book was very entertaining and fun. I am going to be checking frequently to see if the rest in this series come out through Audible. Really hopeful!

    "Not great but I like the characters"

    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.

    "Disappointed"

    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.

    "Was looking for a new series to start.....found it"

    I enjoy a real variety of fiction, so I always try to keep a few series of books going at the same time, depending on my mood - I have loved the Janet Evanovich books for my "light reading", but had read everything she had, so I started searching for "new to me" authors. I did enjoy this book, although, I am sure as the series goes on and the characters are fleshed out/developed more thoroughly, I will get more into the story line. All in all, I do not regret this purchase, and look forward to reading the next in the series.

    "Will be reading more of this series."

    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.

    "Body Movers Good 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.
