Size 12 and Ready to Rock

Meg Cabot. Morrow, $14.99 trade paper (304p) ISBN 978-0-06-173478-6
Cabot (Big Boned) returns to her Heather Wells series with this fourth mystery. When Tania Trace, the new wife of Heather’s ex, Jordan, becomes involved in a murder during the first annual “Tania Trace Rock Camp,” New York College dorm Fischer Hall earns the nickname that fans of the series know all too well: “Death Dorm.” Quickly, assistant resident director Heather is involved in the case, along with her gorgeous new fiancé, Cooper Cartwright, a PI who is hired to protect Tania. But when Tania reveals a troubling secret to Heather, Heather, an amateur sleuth, and Cooper must work to find the killer before someone else dies. Sadly, book four in the series lacks not only the surprise villain of previous installments, but also Heather’s trademark tenacity in finding the killer (she doesn’t do much sleuthing here). What remains, though, is the cute and amusing wit that Cabot instills in all her female protagonists. Readers of Cabot’s blog will recognize Heather, with her hilarious pop culture references and dry humor. A good read, though fans might find the plot disappointing in the context of the big picture. Agent: Laura Langlie. (July)
