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!

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!

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.

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.

Garage and drama

The plot was good. The main characters were not likeable. The speaker cannot pronounce garage or drama.

Great Series!

I'm really enjoying the series however, I don't like the narrator's voice. If it wasn't for the voice, I'd have to say this is one of my favorites.

Love this author and this book!

My only negative assessment is that the narrator repeatedly mispronounces "garage."
It is so wrong, it is disturbing, especially since the word is used often.

Really great twists on the plot

I downloaded this book waiting for another one I had reserved to come in. I wasn't initially excited about it, but soon fell in love with the plot, twists and turns! I can't wait to listen to the next sequel!
