The Bride Wore Size 12: A Novel by Meg Cabot

(Thank you to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!)

Love, love, love! I absolutely enjoyed this funny, quick-paced mystery starring a sassy gal named Heather Wells.  Apparently, this is the fifth and final installment in the Heather Wells Mystery series - a fact that I didn't know prior to reading this book.  Luckily, the author provides plenty of informative references to Heather's past, so that newbie readers (like me!) never feel confused about any of the continuing story lines from previous books.

So, what did I love about this book?  All of the craziness that makes up Heather's life!  There is her upcoming wedding to hunky Cooper Cartwright.  With a month to go, there are still a lot of details to finish planning for the big day - only thing is, their expensive and top-notch wedding planner seems to always be unavailable.  And, suddenly everyone seems to be invited to the wedding - people Heather had no idea were even on the guest list!  Oh, and Heather's mom is back on the scene - the same mom who stole all of Heather's pop star earnings (yes, she was a pop star!) and ran off with her manager.  Talk about an unpleasant blast from the past.  Plus, Heather's already crazy-busy job as an assistant resident hall director has just gotten even more crazy - not only does she have to deal with unhappy parents requesting room changes for the kids, but she has a murder mystery to solve!  A resident adviser named Jasmine has turned up dead in her dorm room and its barely orientation week - what else can go wrong!?!  Cripes! Looks like Heather has another whodunit to solve at the "Death Dorm" (yeah, the dorm has a bad history of residents getting murdered).  Could the culprit be the VIR (very important resident - a prince!) that the university is bending over backwards to take care of?  Hmmm.  Suspicions are up in the air and Heather is all over it!

Now, doesn't that sound like a fun read?  Well, it is!  The Bride Wore Size 12 is a fun, engaging, light read that will have you laughing out loud and knitting your brows in surprise.  I would absolutely recommend this book to fans of Meg Cabot and her popular series, The Heather Wells Mysteries, along with fans of women's fiction and mystery novels.  You will just love this book!
