In the second Heather Wells mystery, there has been another death in the dorm–excuse me, residence hall–where Heather works as assistant director. This time, a bubbly cheerleader’s head was found bubbling away in a pot on the stove in the cafeteria, with the rest of her nowhere to be found. Ew. And, of course, despite her promises not to get involved, Heather just can’t help it.
And then there’s her personal life. Her father has just gotten out of prison (which he refers to as “camp”) and he’s come to New York. Jordan, her ex-boyfriend, is causing all sorts of trouble for her. And she’s still in love with Cooper, who shows no signs of reciprocating her feelings.
Meg Cabot is amazing. One of the things I love about her books is the fact that, the vast majority of the time, the sequels are just as good as the original books! Just as smart and hilarious and completely fun to read. Size 14 Is Not Fat Either is no exception (and, no surprise, love the title sentiment, again). I love Heather, and I love these books. Sure, they’re pretty much fluffy chick-lit with some mystery thrown in, but they are that particular genre done perfectly. I can’t wait until the next book in the series is finally returned to the library so I can devour it, too! In six words: Fantastic installment in an addictive series.
