Enhance your purchase
Carlotta Wren has been looking forward to her wedding day since she was a little girl, and she wants it to be perfect. But even as she plans a blowout wedding, she has other worries on her mind.
In the process of trying to prove her former coworker was murdered, she may have stumbled onto a coverup with national implications—not to mention learning she’s blood related to someone with whom she has, um, unpleasant history.
If she lives long enough to say I DO!
And while she’s pledged her hand to one man, another man is dogging her heels, and her heart. She has the perfect dress, the perfect ring… and the perfect man? If only she could see into the future…
As Carlotta closes in on a murderer, she realizes she’s in the crosshairs of some powerful people who want her dead—if planning the wedding doesn’t kill her first!
Praise for the BODY MOVERS series:
"Body Movers is one of the most delightful series I have read in quite some time. Stephanie Bond shows her audience what a wickedly funny mystery should be all about." --Suspense Romance Writers Book Review
"Stephanie Bond's Body Movers Series is an absolute hoot!" --TheRomanceReadersConnection.com
"Bond has successfully switched to the crime genre, bringing along her trademark humor and panache." --Booklist

Q: Do I have to read the BODY MOVERS books in order?
A: It's best to read the first book BODY MOVERS before 2, 3, 4, etc. But PARTY CRASHERS stands alone as a mystery. Carlotta Wren is a secondary character in that book, so you can circle back to read PARTY CRASHERS later (and see Carlotta before she was scared straight!).

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book seems forced with too many plotlines that ended too quickly. I understand that the author might not have wanted to continue the series, but this story could have been resolved over a much longer book - or split into two midsize books to do it justice. All of the wonderful detail of the story and personality of the characters is missing.
When she's on her game, Stephanie Bond is one of my favorite authors. I dropped her from autobuy when she began splitting her books into novella size chunks and then just stopped reading her work, except for the Bodymovers series. It's a bittersweet goodbye to this group of characters and to this author for me. My four star review is mostly for nostalgia's sake.
It's not that I mind that Carlotta wound up with
Jack. I was team Coop, but it was clear Carlotta had more chemistry with Jack. It's that Carlotta left Coop at the alter and then ran off to marry Jack that very day without even having the decency to break things off with Coop! What kind of monster does that to someone, let alone to someone you profess to love? Are we just supposed to be happy that Carlotta and Jack get their happy ending and never mind the emotional devastation she wreaked on someone who had done nothing but love, support, and cherish her? Is she a sociopath, or just breathtakingly cruel and selfish? The ending was so hideous that it's tainted my view of the entire series. I wish I could go back and scrub the last chapter out of my brain. All that said, I do recommend the book...as long as you stop reading before the last chapter.
*Before the ending, my one complaint with the series was the extreme overuse of the word "murmured" and the phrase "made a rueful/mournful noise." They come up so nauseatingly often that it makes one wonder if Carlotta is pathologically unable to speak at normal conversational tones or use her words to articulate unhappy feelings. How did the editor let that happen for 12 entire books??
I've waited years for this story to come to a conclusion...I realized I'd become too invested in the characters when one of the books came to an unexpected end with a shocking cliff hanger that left me in pieces heartbroken, as if it had happened to me. I know, I know...
it's just a book...get a life, woman!
But this is exactly what should happen
when characters are so wonderfully disfunctual and left in the hands of a terrific author!
This last book in the series was well worth the wait! Thank you, Stephanie!
It's been quite the Ride!
But the ending…ugh!
Whether readers were on Team Cooper or Team Jack no one could have been happy with Carlotta’s behavior! The author did not give her characters the send off they deserved.
Recommend this book if you have read others in the series just for the closure factor. But very disappointing.
I was enjoying the series until the author started dragging out the storyline and the cliffhangers were starting to be more frustrating than 'who shot JR.' Back in the day when the Dallas cliffhanger ruined a good TV series, you only had to wait 3 months to find out who the culprit was -- not years! If it wasn't for the wait and the storyline stretches, I would have given this series at least 3 stars.
