After dallying with sexy vampires and ingeniously reinterpreting the Dracula legend (Insatiable, Overbite), #1 New York Times bestseller Meg Cabot is ready to rock ’n’ roll once more with Heather Wells. The un-petite assistant New York City college dorm director and sometime sleuth is back in Size 12 and Ready to Rock—a delectable comedy mystery that proves once more that the much beloved author of The Princess Diaries rules in the realm of grown-up women’s fiction as well. Heather’s got her hands full when a pop star and her reality TV camera crew invade the dorm—bringing with them a summer camp-full of adoring teen admirers—only to have an inconvenient homicide spoil the fun. There’s romance, treachery, merry mayhem and music—just the ticket for readers who like to rock out on the hip contemporary singleton fiction of Sophie Kinsella, Jennifer Weiner, and Jane Green.
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 fianc , 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.
