Carlotta Wren's life has never been simple, but things seem to be spinning out of control. Cooper Craft, her friend and sometime body mover employer, has been arrested. Everyone thinks he is the Charmed Killer who has murdered many young women with a signature charm left behind. Despite overwhelming evidence Carlotta is the one person who believes Coop is innocent and she sets out to prove her theory.
Her investigation is not encouraged by Detective Jack Terry. Jack still has feelings for Carlotta, even though their romance has never really blossomed. Carlotta is currently living with her former fiance', Peter Ashford, both as a protective measure and in an effort to sort out their future together.
If juggling three men were not enough, Carlotta's black sheep brother, Wes, continues to cause her heartache. His addictive personality seems to have led to serious illegal drugs. She and Wes have had to struggle ever since their parents ran off and left them after a financial scandal.
In this sixth installment of the Body Movers series, author Stephanie Bond continues to entertain readers with flawed, but fascinating characters. Carlotta may have other faults, but she has a good heart and survivor instincts. Wes is a bad boy who seems to appeal to women with his charm and intelligence. The smooth, conversational style of this current novel and the earlier ones make them fun, quick reads.
Books four through six have been released back to back and this has been a reader's dream to have continuity in a fast-paced, suspenseful series. Each story has taken up right where the last one ended. At the end of 6 Killer Bodies there are still a few loose ends. A look at Ms. Bond's website informs that the fate of the Body Mover series is in the hands of the publishers. I hope they will approve future novels so I can spend more time with Carlotta and crew. In the meantime, I can enjoy the author's skillful writing in many upcoming projects.
