8 Bodies is Enough (Body Movers) Kindle Edition
Carlotta Wren is off on another adventure--this time following a lead from her jailbird father to Las Vegas to find out what happened to her long-lost mother. Unaware of Carlotta's mission, her brother Wesley tags along with grandiose designs of winning big with a secret bag of cash he found. But as soon as the Wren siblings hit Sin City, their luck runs cold. A dead man spoils Carlotta's plan and before she knows it, the entire gang from Atlanta has descended to aid, abet, and aggravate. Wes has problems of his own when it turns out the found money belongs to seriously bad men who want it back.
You might lose more than you can afford...
With the odds stacked against them, Carlotta and Wes keep rolling the dice. Too late, Wes learns he's accidentally blown his father's case wide open. Someone wants the Wrens--all of them--to cash in their chips for good. And when Carlotta uncovers the real reason behind her parents' disappearance, it yanks her life in a new direction.
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
"Bond has successfully switched to the crime genre, bringing along her trademark humor and panache." --Booklist
If you're looking for laugh-out-loud books, check out the BODY MOVERS series! To-date, titles in the series include:
PARTY CRASHERS (prequel)
2 BODIES FOR THE PRICE OF 1
3 MEN AND A BODY
4 BODIES AND A FUNERAL
5 BODIES TO DIE FOR
6 KILLER BODIES
6 ½ BODY PARTS (novella)
7 BRIDES FOR 7 BODIES
8 BODIES IS ENOUGH
9 BODIES ROLLING
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.
And that's where I almost moved this review to three stars. This book was short. I finished it in a couple hours (granted, I'm a fast reader, but it was still a very quick read for me). And the last 15-20% gave me whiplash Bc I felt like it was so rushed. I'm actually shocked that she's not considering this the end of the series with how it all wrapped up. Not that I'm sad, I really want Carlotta's relationships to be fleshed out and be able to see how they play out in a new reality that Ms. Bond has given us. But I think the rushed, almost frantically thrown-at-us plot of this book will temper my excitement a bit for book 9.
In the end, I give this four stars because I read it in one sitting, I laughed and got choked up. I enjoyed it, but I didn't love it. Maybe I shouldn't have read the earlier books leading up to this release, because all the main characters that we've grown to love feel a little flatter than they used to. But I hold out hope that book 9 will give a fresh twist to a series that I've been loving for years, and will continue reading as long as she writes it.
Personally, I really hope Carlotta ends up with Coop. Peter doesn't deserve her. I don't think he'll ever truly put her first like she deserves. Jack is an arrogant jerk and if Carlotta ends up raising his kid (the kid that was only conceived out of Jack's selfish spitefulness to prove he wasn't in love with Carlotta) I'm going to be seriously ticked off. Carlotta deserves a lot better than that. Coop really let me down when he went off the rails, but he seems to be back on track in this last novel. He's a good friend and the only one of the 3 who I believe will put Carlotta and her needs first no matter what. I hope the Big Clue at the end of Book 8 as a lead up for Book 9 doesn't end up taking Coop out of the running for her affections. It has me worried. I might wait and read the reviews of the next book before purchasing if that is the case.
This book broke my heart when I realized that Jack and Carlotta wouldn't get together in this book. Carlotta gets engaged to Peter who is so wrong for her and Jack is with Liz who is having his baby. Like what?! Noooooo! We finally had Carlotta ready to realize that she loves Jack....*stomp foot*. Stephanie Bond definitely creates really good dialogue between these characters. It isn't forced. It seems natural. We definitely get a twist at the end. I was not expecting it - so it gives me hope for Carlotta & Jack :) :)
The only complaint about this book was that it certainly wasn't long enough! Now, I have to wait for another book!

I won't give away any spoilers, but I really hope that Wesley finally gets his act together after this book as his continual screwing up is getting beyond irritating. I'm tempted to skip his chapters, but I can't because they can affect Carlotta's. Otherwise, I enjoyed the rest of the characters.
If you haven't read the previous books of the series, don't read this one as there is no point. You're missing 7 books of backstory that you need to follow this one.
I will still continue to read this series. Hopefully, with the main storyline wrapped up, Ms Bond will reboot the series with a juicy new storyline.
