7 stars (out of 5!) for "7 Brides for 7 Bodies"

Book # 2 of my 20 Books of Summer is in the bag.

The body bag, that is!

I have been in love with Stephanie Bond's Body Movers series since before it was a series. The main character, Carlotta Wren, was first introduced as a minor character in her book Party Crashers. I loved that so when I found out that there was going to be this spinoff series I devoured them as quickly as they came out.

And then they stopped coming.

In 2009 after 6 Killer Bodies was released and subsequently devoured, I was left a great big giant void in my life. Apparently the original publishers decided that they didn't want more and I was crushed. These were my friends ... my family. I was left with so many questions about Carlotta and her life and her family and her friends ... and her loves. It was horrible!!!

Then the book gods smiled down and in 2012 blessed me and all of the other Body Movers fans with 6 1/2 Body Parts -- a novella. Nice ... but something was missing. (Like, 200 or so pages.)

And then. THEN. Just a few short months ago the world was reunited for real with the release of 7 Brides for 7 Bodies.

So 7 stars out of 5. For a great story. For intrigue. For laughter. For ending it with even more questions that need to be answered (and hopefully before another 3 years go by!). For reuniting me with the characters that I've loved for longer than I've been a mom and he turns 9 in less than a week!

Do not read these out of order. Start with Party Crashers and then carry on with the "official" series. And then tell me how awesome I am for bringing them into your life.
