    I would like to read a book that shows a scene where the reader can reach in and smack a character on the back of the head when they do something stupid. True reader participation! Hahah! Of course if someone smacked me every time I did something stupid I would need to wear a helmet all the time. Any way, in this book our characters do not improve in their emotional intelligence. Our heroine chases the guy who lies to her the most and her brother continues to make bad decisions.

    *thud-thud-thud* That's me banging my head against the wall. Stephanie Bond's third installment in her "Body Movers" series has me wanting to smack every single character upside the head!

    The further into these books I get the less I like them. I have the next two in the series and I'll probably read them but honestly I'm asking myself if I should even bother. Instead of a review of the book, let me give you a review of the characters. Carlotta = Spineless. She's basically a doormat for the men in her life. She seems to like it. Wesley = Selfish and self absorbed. He's sleeping with Liz, his lawyer who has also slept with his father. He doesn't seem to think there's anything weird a The further into these books I get the less I like them.

Liz = Slept with Carlotta's father, brother, and the detective Carlotta slept with. The pharmaceutical companies that make treatments for STDs no doubt send her a christmas card every year. Coop = seems like a halfway decent person, but like all decent people in these books, gets treated like dirt. Chance = Wesley's best friend who treats women like a toilet (a place to relieve himself). Wesley seems to think he's not a bad person. The characters in these books are really odious. I guess the good thing about these books is they give people who watch Jerry Springer something to read on the beach.

Now both of them have more secrets and menance. Carolotta continues to keep three men on a string, moving back and forth into seduction and out again. She cannot make up her mind, is led by her hormones, and inhibited by the unresolved conflicts her her life. Of course there's a mystery to solve and she moves into the middle of it led by her curiosity and boredom. The mystery itself is entertaining and well spun with a satisfactory and injurious ending. Carlotta spends a lot of time inadvertently getting hurt and narrowly escaping death. The ongoing story about her parent's flight from justice deepens and becomes more complicated to the point of being tiresome. I like the characters and the writing but enough already, solve this mystery. That way Carlotta can decide which man is for her. It's not sexual tension with witty repartee any more. Time for a new plot. This one is twisted and annoying. I'm going to keep reading the series in the hopes that what is good and endearing about these character endures and what has become boring just fades away.

    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.

    I like this series but sometimes Carlotta Wren gets on my nerves. She's got three men dangling on the hook and IMHO two of the three aren't worthy. So what's the dilemma? Detective Jack Terry is hunting her runaway (from justice) father and plans to have him incarcerated. What's the attraction here? Peter Ashford, her high school boyfriend/fiance, dumped her like a hot potato when the charges against her father were announced. Hello!

On the other hand, Dr. Cooper Craft is a wonderful man who is head over heels in love with her. It seems like no contest to me. Her wishy-washiness is driving me nuts. And don't get me started on her brother, Wesley - what a loser! Anyway, Carlotta gets involved in the murder investigation of a celebrity and as usual her life is in danger. She's hit by a car, she's almost strangled to death and she's involved in numerous incidents involving guns and body snatchers. Regardless of the personality issues, this is a great mystery and a wonderful adventure for the whole gang.

    For someone with a supposedly genius IQ, Wesley is making a lot of bad decisions! And I hope Carlotta makes a decision soon about the guys, even though they always seem to be conveniently available whenever she gets into trouble! Again the murder mystery is almost secondary to the continuing saga of Carlotta's missing parents that I also hope we get some resolution soon!

    Oh, my! There's so many things going on! What curveball will the universe throw at Carlotta next? Is Wes able go five minutes without getting into trouble? Will Jack be able to redeem himself even if he's just doing his job? And what about Hannah, Peter and Coop?

    Registered on Bookcrossing: http://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/8... Great book in this mystery/romance/suspense series. It's been years since I read the last one. Carlotta Wren is a great main character. If you like the Stephanie Plum series you would like this one too.

    She’s one of the worst people I’ve ever read... why can’t I stop reading these books?? I honestly HATE Carlotta or however you spell her real name. She’s stringing alone men for her fathers sake.

    This one was def not the best one. I really was mad at Carlotta most of the book, thinking WHY are you getting yourself into this mess for no reason? At least the last two cases involved you. Also, I hope she has health insurance all that time she is spending In the er. I don't know what to make of Wesley's newest addiction or the fact that he is ok doing his fathers mistress because he reminds her of his father?!? And how is it all these dumb decisions are not catching up with him? Like leavi This one was def not the best one.

    *spoiler alert* I refuse to read another book in this series. Carlotta Wren is a pushover, and I'm sick of wishy-washy main characters. This is incredible!!! Where have all the good female leads gone?!!! I'm not gonna waste anymore time reading about her being a human doormat.

    Carlotta needs to cut her brother loose to sink or swim on his own. His bratty spoiled selfish behavior takes away from the mystery. It also brings in too much extraneous baggage.

    Another one down. And I’m starting to hate all of them. Carlotta for some of her really dumb choice. Wes for pretty much everything he does. Peter for being so stupid and putting Carlotta at such a weird place. Detective Terry is just kind of gross for leading her on and being a jerk but at least he rescues her? And Cooper…for not demanding that she be better. He’s pretty much the only one left I like! Carlotta’s off work still healing from her incident at the end of 2 Bodies for the Price of 1.

Coop invites her to join him on a trip to pick up a VIP body, and she agrees to go since on the way is a stop where her dad’s finger prints were just found. Then the VIP body has some mystery surrounding it – what was the cause of her death? Ugh. I hate all of them and all their poor decisions and how dumb they all are. 6.5 of 10 overall and 4.5 of 5 readability. Off to read the next one because it’s sort of like a bad train wreck of drama that I just can’t look away from… For more reviews, check out bedroopedbookworms.wordpress.com!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Another fun read that irritatingly did little to move any major plot lines forward. While the book was enjoyable it still did not move any major plot lines forward: Carly still has 3 guys on the hook and there haven’t been any big break throughs in her fathers case. That being said more issues have been lined up for future books in the series: Wesley’s budding drug addiction, his existing gambling addiction, Liz being slutty, etc.

    More waffle than Huddle House, Cracker Barrel, and IHOP together, but still loads of fun. Want to smack the crap out of Wesley just about every time he moves; for a genius he sure is a slow learner - too bad Carlotta gets a lot of the blowback from his stupid decisions. Then on the other hand, she's surely the girl who goes into the dark basement when the axe murderer is on the loose. Makes for quite the roller coaster ride.

    This book is part of a series, the third book in and it depends very heavily on things that happened before. I want to reread this after I read the first two books in order. Also, I didn’t agree with some of the decisions Carlotta made. She is very recognizably human however with human frailties when it comes to romance.

    Cath Swart

    Easy read full of tongue-in-cheek moments. Carlotta remains a well written, relatable and endearing heroine. But she’s got to start showing her brother some tough love soon or this series could take a dive into annoying ... For now though there’s still loads of fun to be experienced between the pages of this book. Onward to book 4!

    Series gets a twist A lot happens in his book beside the main body mystery. The biggest surprise to me is when Wesley reveals what he's done for The Carver. I really am pulling for Coop but I'm afraid the good guy isn't going to win over Carlotta's affections. Jack is still a sleaze to me.

    I think I'm out. Wesley. Oh Wesley. I just cannot take his downward spiral. It's not what I consider enjoyable to read, and I don't like such heavy topics in my bedtime, unwinding activities. Plus, it's obvious Carlotta and Wesley will forgive their parents. I just can't.

    Wesley is the most irresponsible, childish, SELFISH character Ive read in a long time. Good job making me despise him so thoroughly. The love connection between Carlotta and Jack, Coop and Peter is delicious.
