The Bride Wore Size 12 civer

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.


This is the fifth installment of Meg’s Size 12/Heather Wells mystery series, and actually the first one I have read. Why I have no idea, I just never picked one up!  But spoiler alert- this is the last book n the series! Ooops. Now I have to go back and see how it all started! 

This book is funny, a very quick read and the mystery is pretty good as well! Heather and Cooper are very relatable, and you may think you're reading about people in your own life, the characters are so well done!  I'm actually surprised that this series hasn't been picked up for a Lifetime series or movie, as her other books have. I think there is a great audience for it!

If you want an enjoyable afternoon read, just for YOU, pick up this one!
