In the romantic comedy novella BABY, HOLD ON soldier Mike Nichols brings his search and rescue dog Sheridan to Sweetness for a skills refresher at the town’s dog training facility. But he’s worried sick—his once fierce and heroic dog is now so timid and nervous, Mike fears he’ll have to be retired. Irritation over Sheridan’s condition puts Mike at odds with the offbeat owner of a dog grooming service, who, according to local rumor, is some sort of dog whisperer.
Lacey Lovejoy is intrigued by the handsome dog handler, but after the man snaps at her, she decides his dog’s issues might have something to do with his overbearing master. When Mike grudgingly asks for her help with healing Sheridan to meet a training deadline, Lacey reluctantly takes the job. In close quarters, the task and the pressure is unnerving—even more so when Lacey realizes she and Mike have some powerful animal magnetism!
A story for dog lovers and lovers in general!
Stephanie Bond was seven years deep into a corporate career in computer programming and pursuing an MBA at night when an instructor remarked she had a flair for writing and suggested she submit material to academic journals. But Stephanie was more interested in writing fiction—more specifically, romance and mystery novels. After writing in her spare time for two years, she sold her first manuscript; after selling ten additional projects to two publishers, she left her corporate job to write fiction full-time. To-date, Stephanie has more than ninety published novels to her name, including the popular BODY MOVERS humorous mystery series, and the romantic comedy STOP THE WEDDING!, now a Hallmark Channel movie. Stephanie lives in midtown Atlanta. For more information on Stephanie’s books, visit www.stephaniebond.com.
Carlotta Wren is dazed and confused—everything she thought she knew about her life has been a lie. How can she ever trust anyone again? And where does she go from here?
She hopes a business trip out of town will help to clear her head… instead it lands her in the middle of a murder, as the prime suspect! While Carlotta works frantically to prove her innocence, she’s also forced to confront the lies she’s been telling herself. If she manages to get out of this mess, she’ll have to get real about the kind of life she wants, and the person she wants to spend it with.

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!).
