Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Modern-day Cinderella Jolie Goodman isn't dressing up for the ball in Miu Miu shoes and an Ultrasuede jumpsuit "borrowed" from Neiman Marcus in order to find her princeâ€"she's trying to discover who's behind the disappearance of her shady boyfriend. And instead of being hindered by two evil stepsisters, Jolie has two expert party crashers at her side, sneaking her into Atlanta's most exclusive affairs so that she can grill her boyfriend's upper-class pals. Jolie's prince eventually does appear, in the form of hunky media empire heir Beck Underwood, satisfying the book's "romantic suspense" label, but as Jolie stumbles from one near disaster to another, Bond (Kill the Competition, etc.) lays on the laughs with such enthusiasm that "comic suspense" might be a better description. The danger and hilarity stirred up by Jolie's amateur sleuthing play strongly off each other, leaving Beck looking like a monkey in the middle until the unlikely, syrupy denouement, which seems as tacked on and superfluous as a giant bow on an elegant Vera Wang gown. But Bond delivers a true catch-you-by-surprise plot twist that gives the story a good yank in the right direction and may even leave readers with a few devious thoughts on how to crash some parties of their own.

More About the Author

Stephanie Bond was several years into a corporate computer programming career when an instructor in her night school MBA program remarked she had a flair for writing and encouraged her to submit one of her projects to academic journals. "But," Stephanie says, "all I could think was 'I wonder if I could write a romance novel?' "

She spent every spare moment the next couple of years writing and submitting manuscripts before selling her romantic comedy IRRESISTIBLE? to Harlequin books. After selling ten projects in two years, Stephanie walked away from her corporate career to write commercial fiction full time. To date, she's published over 70 romance and mystery projects with Random House, St. Martin's Press, HarperCollins, Mira Books, and more recently, under her own imprint.

Stephanie's independently published romantic comedy STOP THE WEDDING!, a Kindle bestseller in three languages, is currently in development at The Hallmark Channel for a 2-hour movie.

Stephanie lives in midtown Atlanta and is probably working on a story at this very moment.

This is a fun, light-hearted mystery/romance. No graphic sex, no graphic violence. The best part of the book is the mystery. The setting is fun: Neiman Marcus and exclusive Atlanta parties that our heroine "crashes" with some new friends. The side characters are, well, real characters. One dresses in goth and dates married men; the other dresses in fancy clothes that she buys, then returns to Neimans, and has a brother who's in debt to loan sharks, Our heroine, Jolie, just started working in the shoe department at Neimans and ends up being accused of murder.

Jolie is a stereotypical romance heroine: poor, orphaned, a bit shy, smart, hardworking, not blatantly beautiful, but cleans up well. Improbably, a rich and handsome man falls for her and becomes her knight-in-shining armour. OK, the romance is the weakest part of the book. But it has a guaranteed happy ending. The writing is good. The mystery is well-developed. The characters - especially the side characters - are really interesting. In fact, the side characters, Carlotta and Hannah, become the main characters in Stephanie Bond's Body Movers series.

If you're looking for a well-written romance or light-hearted mystery, this is a good one. It's a great vacation read. After you're done with it, check out the Body Mover's series to see what Carlotta and Hannah are up to next.

I grabbed this Stephanie Bond freebie recently on the basis of her other romance books that I have read and enjoyed. I don't believe I read the description or the reviews prior to downloading it. The Amazon listing states that it is a humorous, romantic mystery but at 48% and 13 chapters finished, there has been little humor and zero romance.

I disliked Carlotta and Hannah from the start. Jolie quit her job over her boss's unethical behavior but she engages in unethical behavior herself by purchasing clothing she cannot afford, wearing it once and returning it as unworn. She also continually ignores her conscience and succumbs to Carlotta's pressure to join her in so-called "fun" and I find myself wanting to say to her "If your friends jumped off a bridge, would you jump off too?" As much as I liked Jolie at the beginning of the story I find myself disliking her more and more as it goes on because of these behaviors.

I also am not comfortable with the "how to" manual Ms. Bond has written for engaging in these practices and sneaking into events for which one would otherwise have to pay, otherwise known as theft. I don't find such things funny at all.

Maybe I will try finishing it another time when I am in a better mood but right now I am moving on to something which really is humorous and romantic.

After reading several disappointing romantic comedies towards the end of last year (titles not disclosed), I have now read three gems in a row! (The other two being I'm Dreaming of a Wilde Christmas (A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy) and An Idiot in Love (a laugh out loud comedy)) Party Crashers is a fun read that has mystery, intrigue, romance and a lot of humor. I really like the character of Jolie - the unexpected corners she turns really keeps you gripped and does make this a page-turner. Stephanie Bond's style of writing really appeals to me, her books are well written and very easy to follow.

This book is a winner!

This book had a little of everything in it. From humor to a great mystery, and an "edge of your seat" suspense. The characters were well drawn out, leaving no voids in your imagination. I enjoyed every minute of it! I look forward to reading more from Ms. Bond.

What can I say? I read all of Ms. Bond's Body Mover's series and I wanted more. I found this book and wished that I had read it first. Loved the book! She makes me laugh and is so entertaining. I love her work.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Realtor Jolie Goodman quit her job over her new boss demanding she do an unethical act in order to make a sale. Jolie temporarily sells shoes at the Nieman Marcus in Atlanta's Lenox Mall. There she meets Beck Underwood of Underwood Broadcasting, who needs socks and shoes having just returned from Central America. The duo is attracted to one another, but nothing comes of it not jus because she is working, but police Detective Salyers arrives to question Jolie about her missing boyfriend Gary Hagan, whose car was found in the Chattahoochee with a dead woman inside.
The police suspect that Jolie abetted Gary in his escape though she denies involvement. As Detective Salyers searches for Gary, he quietly warns Jolie to watch herself as he is in danger and she might be. Meanwhile she runs into Beck at an event that she crashes and soon they begin to fall in love. However, after Gary, she has doubts about her taste in men besides which she is in danger from people who believe she has something of Gary's that they want at any cost.
Though the police procedural-Gary subplot in many ways takes center stage and the conspiracy behind all this is overdone, the contemporary romance between Jolie and Beck is well written and cleverly interwoven with the case. The support cast adds depth especially those co-workers like the ultra-tall long necked professional party crasher who mentors the heroine in the arts of attending celebrity events for free. Fans will appreciate this mixing of humor and love within in a crime thriller while attending an advanced class in Party Crashing 301.
