REVIEW: Body Movers 6.5 and 7 by Stephanie Bond

Several year ago a great friend recommended the Body Movers series to me. I immediately gobbled up books 1-6, heartbroken that there weren't any more at the time and because there was a pretty epic cliffhanger. I learned that Bond's publisher decided not to keep the series but now she's self publishing and back to the series. I'm thrilled!

6 1/2 Body Parts supposes what Carlotta Wren's life might have been like if her father hadn't been accused of embezzling and her parents hadn't disappeared leaving their eldest daughter to raise her brother Wesley.

This novella explores a dream-like, time travel theme which provides Carlotta with some important insights. Her life would certainly be different but not necessarily better despite having money and her parents present.  What she does discover is that her fates with Jack, Coop and others are entwined no matter the timeline.

I enjoyed this little detour of the overall arc but was glad it was short so that I could move on to the next book and find out what will happen to Carlotta's topsy-turvy world.

Final rating: 3 out of 5 stars

The 'Charmed Killer' is no more. Carlotta is safe. Her father is in prison and her brother Wesley is going to be a father! Poor Carlotta just can't get a break!  So when her retail job temporarily plants her in the world of wedding planning, she's happy for the distraction — at first. Because the happily-ever-after setting only heightens the stress surrounding the decisions she faces about her romantic life. The three hot men --Peter, Jack and Coop--vying for her attention aren’t going to wait forever for her answer.

Even at the bridal expo, Carlotta just can't seem to keep out of trouble, not when the model groomsmen start ending up dead! 

This was a fun mystery in a unique setting which parallels nicely with all the drama Carlotta and Wesley are facing in their lives.  I still have high hopes for Carlotta and Jack, but a new snag has put that relationship on the back burner--good for Wesley, not so much for Jack.

I can't wait for book 8, 8 Bodies is Enough because I need answers!  What's in Las Vegas? Why won't Carlotta's father talk to her? Where is her mother??!!!!!

Final rating: 4 out of 5 stars
