Stephanie Bond’s ‘Body Movers’ series is more of a romantic mystery than anything else. Bond has a great touch with adding humor to her stories, the mysteries are well-plotted, and there are ongoing and changing relationships (romantic and familial) that run throughout. There are currently six books in the series and the author’s website says there may be more. These books made me laugh and made me sigh and even get a little overheated in some spots. In some ways, this series reminds me of Evanovich’s ‘Stephanie Plum’ series.
In book three, Carlotta is recovering from events at the end of book two and has a few more weeks off work. When one of the men in her life, very sexy Cooper–current body mover and former head medical examiner, invites her along for a special body-moving job in Florida Carlotta can’t think of any reason to refuse him…er, the job! But this is Carlotta’s life so pretty soon there’s run-ins with corpse-snatchers, her brother Wesley tags along, she hears from her fugitive father, and she and Cooper…uh, you’ll have to read it for yourself to find that one out 🙂
This series is not deep mystery. It’s just fun. If you need a break from the normal routine, this is a series that might be for you.
