Well worth a sequel

Gay and her husband are friends so naturally I this book was a must read. Samantha simply must have further adventures. We can not be left in a lurch. Good one, Gay!

Reviewing a book I didn't really like makes me feel bad. I know that authors always spend hours of their lives into each story and novel in hopes that people will like what it is they have to tell. So, when I say I don't like a book, it makes me feel bad and I didn't really like The Body Business. On Goodreads its obvious that my rating is the odd one out, everyone else liked it! All of the star ratings are either 4 or 5 stars!

The story was a fast read from the beginning, about a woman who works for a large head-hunting corporation, at least that's what it is supposed to be, but then people keep disappearing. The woman is suspicious and has begun to suspect that the company is not what it is supposed to be. She send an email to the FBI about her missing friend. When she is contacted by someone she thinks is the FBI, but learns that the person isn't, she doesn't know who to trust. Then her friend's body is found. An ...more

Romances for me are always a hit or miss. Sometimes they are too corny, too raunchy, too forced, or too (something else). I have to admit, this one was a nice blend of everything and I truly enjoyed it. Aside from the romance, there was a solid story-line concerning some business corruption which gets the FBI involved. The Boyd Business was a quick read and always had a new surprise around the corner. Great book if you are looking for a light, compelling read!

This is a great first book. Well plotted, professionally written, and thoroughly copy-edited. These days that's saying a lot. The suspense kept me engaged to the end. I'm sure that the characters in the next book will be more fully developed. I bought the book because I liked something the author said on a Goodreads discussion (can't remember what), and am posting this review because I liked the book.

Gay Yellen's crisp style and fast-paced plot kept me reading long after bedtime! I might have liked more character growth for Carter and Stephanie, but all the characters were vividly portrayed and interesting. I especially enjoyed Gertie's integrity and authenticity. Looking forward to more from Gay Yellen...

A fun page-turner with a feisty, easy-to-relate-to protagonist. The perfect vacation read.

A former magazine editor and national journalism award winner, she ...more
