Carlotta Wren, amateur detective, is embroiled in a murder investigation. Angela Ashford, married to Carlotta's ex-boyfriend, Peter, (from 10 years ago) has been murdered. Carlotta feels that Peter is innocent and begins an investigation since she believes that the police aren't investigating properly.

Carlotta's brother, Wesley is having troubles with the law (computer hacking) and he's in deep with loan sharks (gambling). So Carlotta's got a lot on her plate not to mention the fact that her parents skipped town 10 years ago on an embezzlement charge and left her and her much younger brother to fend for themselves. Wesley gets a job working for a funeral home collecting dead bodies (hence the title) and his boss Cooper has the hots for Carlotta but unfortunately, Carlotta is hung up and Peter and ignores Coop.

Very exciting and action packed adventure -- the first in a series. I really enjoyed the characters in this book. The detective Jack Terry is funny with a dry sense of humor and interested in Carlotta regardless of the trouble she is in. Cooper is interesting in a macabre kind of way and interested in Carlotta. Her best friend Hannah is something else - piercings, 80s hair and loud and proud...too funny at times. Peter is an ass and hopefully this is the end of him in the series.

Easy read, entertaining as well. Not the greatest piece of literature but its a romantic mystery and first installment of a future series.

I found the rhythm of the writing difficult to read, and I just couldn't seem to connect with the main character.

I enjoyed the series very much. Read the novels that pre-date the series first for a bit of background information (not required). Fun, quick read. Hooked me and couldn't stop reading the series! Just had to know what happened next. Waiting for book 7, due out in 2012 - but when??

I do not like all the sex details in the books, however it is easy to skip past and you miss nothing by skipping it. So each to their own! Some rather vulgar language as well, not able to skip it all, so if this type of thing offends you, I would not recommend this series.

I recommend this series with reserve because of the sex content & vulgar language. The sex details are not as bad as some, but worse than others. I do not think it would keep me from reading the stories, but it might some. So now you know - use your own judgement!

Not quite as funny as a Stephanie Plum book, but still worth reading!
