Product Description

Review

"I would give this a five star rating, for me it had all the elements that make for a good read; I felt that I knew Heather Wells and New York City through her eyes although I have never been there and I genuinely enjoyed the writing style of Meg Cabot." --The Book Corner

I've read all of Cabot's Healther Wells mysteries. This is the best of the series in my opinion. The books are all light and fun with a nice balance of tension and romance. However, this is the first one where the mystery is weighty enough to hold its own.

Heather Wells, former pop-singing sensation turned residence hall director at a fictional version of NYU, is finally planning her wedding to her private eye boyfriend, Cooper. Of course, a semester can't go by without at least one person dying in Fischer Hall. This time it's one of the new undergraduate RAs. The death touches off a potential international incident thanks to the presence of the pampered scion of a Middle Eastern monarch. Half the school is trying to impress the kid, the other half is protesting against him. Also, he brings along with him private AND government security details that obstruct Heather's investigation. The cherry on this cake? Heather's mother--the woman who ran off with her millions a decade before--pops up bringing even more trouble.

Will Heather make it down the aisle, or is her wedding going to be upstaged by her funeral?

I loved that Cabot brought together all of our favorite characters from Heather's world. Glitzy Magda the cafeteria lady, annoying social activist Sarah, Heather-worshiping film student Gavin, Crusty detective Canavan--they're all here (along with many others) causing Heather grief and picking her up at her lowest moments.

Cabot does a great job plotting the novel. The pacing is right on point, with the story moving quickly but providing enough clues and red herrings to get your teeth into. The identity of the killer took me by surprise. When the truth finally comes out, it works really well.

So if you want to go back to college and have a lot more fun than you did the first time around, you'll enjoy this book.

It had been years since I last bought let alone read a book by Meg Cabot, so when this one caught my eye at Miami airport last year, I couldn't resist it. Based on the front cover it looks like a romance, based on the blurb it is clearly more of a mystery some a romance element. I like both genres, so this worked incredibly well for me.

I only discovered just before starting this book that it was part of a series, the 5th book in a series to be precise, but having not read the rest, I can assure you, this book definitely works as a stand alone story.

Heather Wells is an ex pop star, that is now working in the administration office of dorm, Fisher Hall. Fisher Hall has previously had a reputation for being the "death dorm" but this year its had a re-vamp, due to there being a VIR (very important resident), attending the college. As you may imagine this VIR features quite heavily in the overall plot.

Heather is also due to get married, in a few weeks time to PI Cooper Cartwright. I found there wasn't much featured about Cooper Cartwright, but yet what you did hear, he clearly cares about his job and Heather.

Before the end of freshers week at Fischer Hall, there is already drama, when a dead body shows up. Heather becomes determined to work out the cause of death and solve the mystery, before walking down the aisle.

Heathers colleagues, and friends where she works are wonderful characters, with completely different personalities. There is a whole host of ancillary characters that really add to the feel of the book. Keep an eye out for David, who although had a small part, I felt was an very well written character .

The Bride Wore Size 12, I found to be a delightful, easy to read mystery, with some wondefully light hearted sections, and was a very enjoyable book.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is the first novel that I have read by Meg Cabot therefore I had not pre-conceived ideas of whether or not I would like her style of writing or not. If had read the blurb on the back I probably wouldn't have chosen the novel as it did not readily appeal to me. The front cover was also not something that would have drawn me to the book - neither really did the novel any favours.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was very well written and has all the elements that appeal to me as being a good read.

Written in the first person as the central character Heather, this book is from the outset witty and up to date. The storyline is believable and the reader can identify with the characters, they have a very `real' quality about them and the author manages to turn what might have been a very predictable chic lit into a very enjoyable novel with elements of mystery, suspense and romance thrown in for good measure.

Heather is weeks away from her wedding to a Private Investigator Cooper and is already quite stressed out dealing with a very hard to get hold of wedding planner. When a pretty student is discovered dead in the dorm that Heather is in charge of surrounded in mystery this puts added pressure on her and turns her job in to a nightmare; when everyone becomes a suspect Heather is more stressed than the usual bride to be. Add to the mix the arrival of her estranged mother and an ever growing wedding guest list that she and Cooper are not adding to and the whole affair becomes a little like a circus ring.

Heather takes it upon herself to find out what has happened at the College and turns detective to uncover the murderer not without putting herself in danger in the process.
