I received a review copy from the publisher.
Description: 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 Review: It's always exciting when a new Meg Cabot book comes out! I was looking forward to this one, and I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy!
I enjoyed the previous Heather Wells mysteries, and The Bride Wore Size 12 was no exception. While it could be read as a standalone, I recommend reading the previous books so you can truly appreciate Heather's character growth throughout the series. In this book, I could really tell she had matured and grown more confident in herself and her abilities.
There were several subplots going on at once--the dead RA, the trouble-making VIR (Very Important Resident)living in the residence hall, Heather's wedding, her family issues, her friends' big life changes, etc. But despite what could have been dark and depressing subject matter, the story is told in a lighthearted, entertaining way.
I loved the ending of The Bride Wore Size 12. I'm not sure if this is the end of the series...but if so, it ended on a great note. Definitely check out this book and the rest of the series if you like light, fun mysteries with a bit of romance.
