Publisher's Summary

So Carlotta Wren's life hasn't turned out as she'd 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!

Learn to pronounce the dang word!

Honestly, everytime I heard the narrator say the word "garage" I wanted to punch her in the face with my foot. It was distracting and really took away from the story, since whenever she said it I thought about it for at least 30 seconds and missed whatever came next in the story.

It was not funny at all, just sad

I felt very sorry for the main character through the whole book. The reviews called it funny. There was no funny for me. The heroine was so mired down in horrible situations that you could not see ANY happy ending for her. I don't think I will continue with the series.

This is a mystery for adults

This is the first mystery I've ever read that is on the spicy side. Nothing gross but it is sexy.
The narrator is very good but her pronunciation of the word "garage" bugs me to pieces! Ugh!
But listen anyway because it's a great story and I can't wait to listen to the next one!

What exactly is a geraj?

I enjoyed this book and I also enjoyed the narrator. Her voices were wonderful and I knew who was who for the most part. But I wondered if English was a second language or if she was from a different country. Her pronunciation of certain words (and there were several) drove me crazy. Garage was the worst one and she pronounced it geraj. Every. single. time!! How did no one catch this? The story was good, the plot was a little weak, but overall it was entertaining and I would recommend it. Anyone who might be interested, there was some language but not a lot and there was very few sexy scenes and those were PG 13 at best.

Narrator needs some work

I enjoyed the book, nice to listen to something a little lighter. The narrator could be good, she just needs to work on pronunciation. It is quite irritating when she says words wrong, it isn’t like an accent thing, just wrong. With a little work I think she could become a quality narrator.

Great story, but-

I would have enjoyed the story more if narrated with a Southern accent rather than...maybe this is a Chicago accent?
Where is it that people pronounce the second syllable or garage to rhyme with the word “badge”. Might not be so bothersome if the word didn’t happen to occur over and over and over in this book. Not sure I will make it through another book with this narrator. PLEASE GET A NEW VOICE FOR THIS SERIES!

Ho hum

It’s difficult to feel anything for this book, the characters are so lack-lustre and the narrator certainly does not help. The men are creepy and sound like they are coming down with bronchitis or recovering from a root canal. The main female is such a contradiction of character and extremely dull - conveniently dropping her bag frequently to reveal evidence and in need of “a big, strong man”.
It was basically one big eye roll and I had to keep rewinding because I zoned out with disinterest. Nothing worse in a romance when the reader/listener shudders with disgust at the advances of a main love interest because he’s a creep.

Shocking narrator

The main character is meant to be in her late 20s. The narrator sounds like she’s in her 60’s.
The love of her life sounds like a seventy year old with a mouth full of marshmallows!
Ruined the book for me and will stop me from listening to the rest of the series.
