Body MoverseBook - 2006
While dealing with a sexy cop, her fugitive parents, a former fianc‚, and a murder investigation, salesgirl Carlotta Wren gets dragged into a sordid new career when her brother, after getting in trouble with loan sharks and the law, takes a job moving bodies from crime scenes to the morgue. Original.
Okay, so Carlotta Wren's life hasn't turned out as she'd planned. She didn't plan for her parents to skip bail for a white-collar crime, leaving her to raise her younger brother. She didn't plan on having the silver spoon ripped out of her mouth and forgoing college to work retail. She didn't plan on her blue-blood fiancé dumping her like last year's designer bag. And she didn't plan to still be single (with no prospects) ten years later, working at Neiman Marcus, with no idea where her fugitive parents are. But she's coping, sort of. Until
her lovable brother is arrested and his loan sharks come calling.
the hunky cop who arrested her brother reopens her parents' case.
her brother becomes a body mover, transporting corpses from crime scenes.
her former fiancé's wife (a good customer) is murdered, fingering Carlotta.
her brother's sexy boss draws her into the bizarre world of body moving.
Suddenly Carlotta realizes that she has to bag a murderer to keep her own well-dressed body from being next on the list!

SummaryAdd a Summary
Having parents involved in white-collar crime skip town AND skip out on their children made life for teenager Carlotta Wren difficult. Dumped by her high-society fiancé to avoid bringing scandal to his family, Carly struggles to cope with the double loss. Forgoing college to raise her nine year old brother Wesley, Carly takes a retail job at Neiman Marcus. Ten years later, still single and looking after her brother, Carly barely makes ends meet. A hefty portion of her commission comes from a customer who happens to be her former fiancé's wife, who ends up dead after having a confrontation with Carly, who then becomes the prime suspect in her murder. In the meantime, Wesley's gambling brings around his loan sharks and his computer hacking puts him in trouble with the law. These events bring several new problems to Carly's doorstep; a handsome detective, Wesley's sexy new boss, and newly widowed ex-fiancé Peter. She's far from ready for the sudden surge of attention.
