Review: The Body Snatcher Wears Lipstick – Artemis Hunt
Abby Watson has always lived an uninteresting life. Her best friend doesn’t really seem to be that much of a friend and she’s intent on laying her own inconsistencies at her feet. She hates her job and every aspect of the life she leads. Unable to stand up for herself, Abby can’t seem to shake the fact that those she co-exists with take advantage of her at every turn. Except her mother, of course.
When her boss sends her back to the office to fetch him some much needed documents one night, Abby never imagines that doing so will change her life completely. She finds herself flitting from body to body as she searches for the man who’s captured her attention from an early age. A man that she’s intent on never letting go once she gets him.
Having the time of her life, she rejoices when she finally finds Jake Carradoc, even if the consequences of her doing so weren’t the best way in which to garner his attention. Feigning amnesia after Jake accidentally runs her off the road, she makes a smooth transition into his life and enjoys the fact that he’s much closer to her than she ever imagined. He’s everything she ever wanted and more.
Abby can’t imagine going back to the life she had before, but there’s one thing that she hadn’t counted upon. Her body is dying. Without her soul to keep it afloat, it can’t sustain itself. The thought of leaving Jake tears at her heart and she wants nothing more than to stay with him. Yet she knows there’s only one right thing to do, even if it means she must let go of the one thing that has truly made her happy.
This was quite a different take on all things paranormal. The book was a great read. The one thing that I questioned, as I felt it was unnecessary, was the inclusion of Jake’s script. It didn’t feel as if it really meshed with the story. Other than that, I enjoyed the book very much.
Synopsis: Abby Watson is about to move in with the man of her dreams. Too bad the body she wears isn’t hers.
Abby Watson’s life is an airtight box of a dead-end job, a skinflint boss, and a best ‘frenemy’ who thinks Abby has the fashion sense of a tubeworm. When a lab experiment at work blows up in Abby’s face, she develops the ability to jump into other people’s bodies. Suddenly it’s goodbye frump, hellooooo . . . anyBODY gorgeous.
Abby’s leaping into the bodies of heiresses, her best ‘frenemy’, anyone who has ever been mean to her in high school, her scrooge boss, and even the President of the United States (!).
When a chance encounter with the Ferrari of her childhood idol — stunning movie A-lister, Jake Carradoc — leaves one of her beautiful bodies in the hospital, Abby feigns amnesia . . . then a spot in Jake’s home as his indefinite ‘houseguest’.
But Abby’s real body is dying in her soul’s absence. What must she do to get and keep Jake, the only man she’s ever loved with all of somebody else’s heart?
