The Bride Wore Size 12 by Meg Cabot

The Bride Wore Size 12  (Heather Wells #5)The Bride Wore Size 12 by Meg Cabot
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

About the Book: Heather Wells is used to having her cake and eating it too, but this time her cake just might be cooked. Her wedding cake, that is.

With her upcoming nuptials to PI Cooper Cartwright only weeks away, Heather's already stressed. And when a pretty junior turns up dead, Heather's sure things can't get worse—until every student in the dorm where she works is a possible suspect, and Heather's long-lost mother shows up.

Heather has no time for a tearful mother and bride reunion. She has a wedding to pull off and a murder to solve. Instead of wedding bells, she might be hearing wedding bullets, but she's determined to bring the bad guys to justice if it's the last thing she does . . . and this time, it just might be.

My thoughts: I've grown quite fond of Heather Wells and the people in her circle. This is a cozy read featuring the fictional ex-popstar, Heather Wells, who was big in her teenage years but grew bigger after she was a star; a healthy size 12. THAT, I like. So her dad when to prison for tax fraud and her mom ran off with her manager and all of her money leaving Heather broke. So she starts college on work study at a college dorm. Now she's 30 years old, going to college, and engaged to her ex-boyfriend's brother, Cooper who I love but didn't get enough page space in this one.

The new mystery is a dead Resident Assistant and a very important resident on fifteenth floor. They might be related and Heather feels compelled to find out. She puts herself in mortal danger, there's a surprise cameo by her mother who has returned after the statute of limitations has run out, her dad is out of prison and her wedding is in one month. But she has a life to live and a murder to solve.

It's all good fun. It didn't knock my socks off but it was an enjoyable book.
