More About the Author

Stephanie Bond was several years into a corporate computer programming career when an instructor in her night school MBA program remarked that she had a flair for writing and encouraged her to submit one of her projects to academic journals. "But," Stephanie says, "all I could think was 'I wonder if I could write a romance novel?'" Bond grew up on a farm in eastern Kentucky where the entertainment choices were few. Luckily, she had a beloved aunt who shared her passion for reading. "When she visited once a year, she brought boxes and boxes of gothic novels by Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney and lush historical romances--I was in heaven! So suddenly thinking about writing in the genre of the books I loved was very exciting." After writing every spare moment for two years, Stephanie sold her first romantic comedy manuscript, IRRESISTIBLE? to Harlequin books. Two years later, she walked away from her corporate career to write commercial fiction full time. To date, she's published over 60 romance and mystery projects with Random House, St. Martin's Press, HarperCollins, and Mira Books, and is most well-known for her BODY MOVERS humorous mystery series. Her newest series is TWO GUYS DETECTIVE AGENCY (about two sisters whose last name is Guy). Stephanie lives in midtown Atlanta and is probably working on a story at this very moment.

6 Killer Bodies by Stephanie Bond 1 Jun. 2009
By jjmachshev - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Well, I've enjoyed the entire 'Body Movers' series from Stephanie Bond, but I must say I'm a little peeved. Everything I had read intimated that "Killer Bodies" would be the last book of the series. Apparently not! It's not that I didn't enjoy the book, I did, very much...but I was expecting ALL the issues to be resolved. Silly me.

Carlotta feels a bit like Chicken Little. Now that the cops have arrested her 'friend' Cooper, everyone seems to be convinced he's the 'Charmed Killer'...everyone but Carlotta. No matter how much evidence seems to be piling up, she just can't shake her belief in Cooper. And that's not Carlotta's only problem. The escaped, insane, former co-worker who tried to kill her is still on the loose and, as far as Carlotta is concerned, HE's a great suspect for the 'charmed' killings. And her former fiance Peter, who dumped her when her father and her family's wealth disappeared, is pressing her to deepen their relationship. And then there's her brother Wes, 19 years old. He's more of a child to Carlotta since she's the one who raised him for the last ten years...he's in BIG trouble--woman trouble, drug trouble, and mob trouble. Poor Carlotta would really like it if she only had to handle one problem at a time!

If you haven't read the previous five books, for goodness sakes don't start here. This series is filled with mystery, romance, and humor. Carlotta has three, count 'em three, men on a string and STILL can't decide which is right for her. She doesn't walk, but RUNS, where angels fear to tread in her efforts to clear her friends and find the killer and there are more red herrings than on a Maine fishing boat! I think I suspected just about everybody in the darn book, before the real killer was revealed.

"6 Killer Bodies" does have closure...of a sort. The 'Charmed Killer' mystery is solved. The mystery of Carlotta's father is not, but he does make another appearance. Wesley's issues become better...and more convoluted at the same time. And Carlotta's men...are still her men since there's just something special about each one. If only she could make a composite!

I did enjoy this book. Stephanie Bond knows how to mix humor, mystery, and romance and come up with intriguing stories and great plotting. But there's no way this is the last we've heard about Carlotta. So now I'm off to do more research on when I can expect the next installment in her crazy, mixed-up life.

A fun read with lots of action 18 Nov. 2010
By SusieJ - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This entry in the Body Movers series wraps up the trilogy within the series that was made up of books 4, 5, and 6. It picks up right where 5 ended and we get to find out who the Charmed Killer really is. Each book in the series has been better written than the last and this one is no exception.

The book moved along at a fast pace with lots of twists and turns. It's a real page-turner. I could hardly put it down. Our heroine Carlotta is one heck of an amateur detective, fearless, and incredibly loyal to her friends. The characters are well-developed, appealing, and differ from the usual romance characters. They're quirky and have some serious issues: drinking, drugs, gambling, crazy people after them, loan sharks, maybe even murder. Sounds like it would be really depressing, but it's surprising light. It's kind of a combo between romance and mystery lightened with subtle humor. It would be a great beach read.

The basic mystery continues... Carlotta and Wesley's parents abandoned them 10 years ago after the wealthy father was accused of fraud, leaving Carlotta with little money and a younger brother to raise. The D.A. and police are on the trail again and the father occassionally makes contact with Carlotta.

The basic romance continues as well.... Carlotta has three handsome, sexy, interesting yet very different men interested in her and she's not sure where her heart will lead her. There's wealthy Peter, her high-school love and former fiance, who broke up with her when her father was disgraced, but now wants her back and is amazingly kind and generous to her. There's Jack, the Atlanta PD detective who arrested her brother Wesley when he hacked into the county computer system, is on the trail of her fugitive father, and is also on the case of the Charmed Killer. And then there's Coop, the disgraced former doctor and Medical Examiner who is now a recovering (or not) alcoholic who works hauling bodies for the morgue and was willing to give her brother a job and has been a good influence on him.

As usual for this series, there is a cliffhanger ending. According to the author's website, she is under contract to write 7 and 8, but the publisher is holding off because there is a deal for a possible TV show. If that comes to fruition, 7 & 8 will probably be published to coincide with the show. So fans will have to wait to find out what happens to Carlotta's parents and her love life. Waaaahhhhh! I want the next book now!

6 Killer Bodies Keeps a Great Series Going 8 Jun. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you are new to Stephanie Bond and the Body Movers series, then back up to Book One and start there! The trilogy within the series began in Book 4, 4 Bodies and a Funeral, amped up the action in 5 Bodies to Die For, and wraps up in 6 Killer Bodies.

But the action for Carlotta Wren isn't what wrapped up here, just the mystery of the Charmed Killer, so named for the charm bracelet pieces he leaves in the mouth of his victims. Bond leaves us wondering who Carlotta will ultimately choose as a love interest, what will happen with her fugitive parents, and if Carlotta's errant brother Wesley will stay on the straight and narrow.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series that began with Book One, Body Movers. The indominatable Carlotta Wren, Neiman Marcus sales clerk by day and crime solver by sheer determination has been a great character to follow through the series. One can only hope that the publishers of this series will give us at least a couple more books in which to gracefully wrap up this great series. Although, I could handle a lot more than that!

Average 26 May 2009
By S. Harris - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I definitely love the series and think this book wraps some things up but it is just another version of books 1-5. The nosy heroine intervenes in police investigations and ends up basically solving more than one major crime for the city. Again, love the author and the characters but I am getting bored with it and would like to see the series wrapped up. I actually thought this book was meant to do so. As far as a positive, there are some pretty good twists that I didn't expect but for the most part, the series is repetitious and not romantic or sexy as it is marketed to be. I would definitely recommend it for the fans of Body Movers and for the twists but newbies would be more satisfied if they read a few of the previous books prior to this one.

terrific entry 6 Jun. 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Atlanta the police arrest body mover Cooper Craft accusing him of being The Charmed Killer. As women feel safer going outside, his friend Carlotta Wren thinks the cops made a big error as she feels her former working peer Michael Lane is the serial killer.

Police detective Jack Terry agrees with Carlotta's assessment that the wrong man is in custody, but has doubts about Lane being the killer. Carlotta investigates, which enables her to ignore the other two men in her life, her brother Wesley who seems to land in one dire strait after another and her former fiancé, Peter Ashford, who wants a second chance though he dumped her when she was down and seemingly out for the count. Cooper is out on bail but required to wear a GPS ankle bracelet. He removes the tracking device and vanishes, which enforces the opinion he is the Charmed Killer.

The full focus on the sixth Body Movers' thriller is The Charmed Killer, which will keep readers focused on the story line; as the sidebar distractions of 4 and 5 are avoided. Instead, Stephanie Bond provides her fans with a terrific entry as increasingly with every discovery Carlotta makes, Cooper is guilty; his fleeing the coop just adds to the overwhelming proof. 6 KILLER BODIES is a strong entry in the Body Movers' saga.
