This is the third novel in the Heather Wells series, following Size 12 is Not Fat and Size 14 is Not Fat Either. Personally, I think this might just be the best in the series, albeit a seemingly quicker read than the others. But truly? They're all brilliant. Heather, despite being a former pop princess, is a down-to-earth, funny character who's instantly lovable and easy to relate to. I'd advise you to read the other two books in the series first, although it's pretty easy to follow up and Meg's ...more

Recommends it for: chick lit lovers, Meg Cabot fans

I love Heather Wells (the main character). She is so relatable it's sometimes scary. Having been an avid fan of the Heather Wells character since I read the first page of 'Size 12 is not fat', I've avidly followed this series written by Meg Cabot.

I'm not usually a fan of chick lit, but the balance of humor, mystery, characters etc in these books makes them so much fun to read. Heather is a pop tween hit turned college worker just trying to make a living. Shes funny, in love with Coop

I did not know this was the third book in the series. Hopefully 1 and 2 were much better than this one, because I found it ridiculous. The main character Heather is so annoying. She has a boyfriend, a crush and Cooper who are all dying to be with her and all she does is complain about her size. The romance with the cafeteria lady and security guard was silly. The murder mystery, murderer, solving the mystery and ending of the book were all dumb. I will not be reading a book by Meg Cabot again.

I was so excited to finally read this book! I’m a huge fan of the Heather Wells mysteries, and I couldn’t wait to see what one of my favorite heroines had in store for me this time. I must say that it was better than I expected

So, the last we’d heard from Heather, she had just met her remedial math teacher who turned out to be a hottie. Now, in Big Boned, remedial math teacher Tad is now Heather’s boyfriend! Which is totally forbidden, since it’s against the rules for teachers to date students.

I think I read this book before or I at least started to read it because the beginning of the story sounds familiar. It is ok, nothing social, I am at page 200 so I might as well finish it. ....Ok so this book was not the best and I do not think I finished the first time and there was a reason for it. I guess it was not cheesy enough for me.

I had ordered several books by Meg Cabot, and without paying attention to the order that they were written and published, I read this one first. This is actually the 3rd in the Heather Mills series, after Size 12 Is Not Fat and Size 14 Isn't Fat Either. I can say, though, that even not having read the first two books in this series I wasn't lost. I'm sure that knowing the characters in the book may have given the characters more depth, but it certainly wasn't necessary to understand the storylin ...more

Even though Big Boned is pretty much the same book as the first two books in the Heather Wells series (Size 12 Is Not Fat and Size 14 Is Not Fat Either), it's still a fun, fast read. Heather, a former teen pop star and now assistant residence hall director at the fictional New York College's Fischer Hall, tries to solve the dormitory's third (or maybe fourth, I've lost track) murder to occur in the year she's worked there, while at the same time figure out what to do about what seems to be a loo ...more

Big Boned (Heather Wells Mysteries) - Meg Cabot Loved this one too. I really like how Heather is generally dismissed, but is really very clever. Very.

I rushed out into a snow storm yesterday to buy this book because I had just finished Size 14 is Not Fat Either and I just wasn't ready to part with quirky Heather Wells. I rarely laugh out loud at a book as hard I did when I read this series. So, naturally in a mood for more laughter, and hopefully a resolution to the Heather/Cooper love saga, I speed read through this third installment in the series.

Unfortunately, I felt this was the weakest book in the series. It still had me cracking a few

This book (heck, this series) made me laugh so much.

I was a little disappointed with the ending as I wanted a bit more in the romance department. I pretty much knew how it was going to play out but it seemed like it just sorta happened way too fast. I wanted a little more build up. But hey, it was still a really cute series and I enjoyed it a lot. I just hope Meg Cabot will continue writing more adult series. Her YA titles are always cute and enjoyable, but it's nice to read about more adult characters with her sense of humor too.

These are the first Meg Cabot books I've read and I really have enjoyed them. Yes, they're fluff. But her dialogue and characters are so genuine that it all seems so effortless. It's fizzy fluff with a zip. Effervescent fluff. If her writing were food, it would be that pop rock cotton candy, which honestly, we all need a little more of in our diet.

I like Meg Cabot books but some of her novels definitely go in the 'beach reads' pile. They're amusing but not particularly satisfying -- much like the junk food Heather Wells is always eating.

The concept for this series is cute: former teen pop sensation, Heather Wells, now broke and overweight, works in a NY college dorm as an administrator and solves the repeat murders that take place there. You have to look past the idea that NY detectives are so stupid they couldn't find their butts with tw

I really didn't like this book. After reading the first two books in the series I felt there was a nice buildup of the story and I really could relate to Heather (except the pop star part)...and then I open book 3 and at first see that they story is very short. I move past that and read on. Wow, talk about rushed ending. Everything happened so fast in regards to Heather's love life and even though it was pretty obvious she would end up that way it still felt so rushed.

Also, the mystery aspect w

This book was really great. But I knew it would be because I’ve read one of Cabot’s books before and really enjoyed it. When I started reading Big Boned, I didn’t realize it’s the third book in this series, but I don’t feel I missed out on any history or character background. Thus I can safely say it can be read as a stand-alone. A little romance, a little murder mystery, and a lot of laughs make this a winner!
Jun 28, 2015 ♥Jamie rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
3.5 Stars! Big Boned is book three in the 5-book Heather Wells mystery series about an ex-pop star transitioning into the life of an assistant dorm director. Death Dorm is again back, in all it's grisly murder glory, and a Heather is again compelled to find the killer.

Heather Wells' life is finally starting to look up. Despite the murders that have shadowed her first several months of work as Assistant Dorm Director, Heather is really enjoying her job of looking after 700+ undergraduates

The third book in the Heather Wells Mysteries, and this was yet another great little read to add to the series.

For the first time, I did actually work out the killer well in advance of Heather, so perhaps the mystery wasn’t as well crafted as the others, but I had such a great time reading the book and enjoying the characters that figuring it out early on didn’t particularly bother me.

I did think the events with hot landlord / detective were somewhat abrupt towards the end, but just a little nig

Amid the serious and sob-inducing books i have been reading lately, this book is like coming up for fresh air. Our big-boned heroine, Heather Wells is funny, witty, spunky and as real as the next girl. This book actually had me alternately giggling and chuckling, and had me egging her on to go ahead and get that frap with extra-rich whipped cream and caramelized cherry crumble when I wasn't goading her to get her man, Cooper, already. Well, okay. ChickLit rocks.

Actually quite cute. Not that you have to read all three but this one pulls everything all together. Heather Wells; prior pop singer takes on a job as a dorm director. AKA death dorm, but she manages in her hack job way of finding the real killer. Liked the way it ends! Not going to say anymore cause I don't want to give it up.

Big Boned is book 3 in the Heather Wells Mystery. This series is so funny. Heather is the administrative assistant in "Death Dorm" aka Fischer Hall.

Seriously, how many people can die in one dorm?

As Heather finds out, at least one more. This time it is her new boss, Owen and with a bullet to the head, at close range. Owen wasn't well liked and there are a lot of suspects one is a friend of her grad assistant Sarah, who is fighting with the President for rights for the student workers.

Comme toujours, on retrouve avec plaisir la pétillante et attachante Heather Wells, ainsi que tout un tas d'autres personnages que l'on a apprécié dans les tomes précédents. Heather est donc à nouveau accompagnée de Cooper, Magda, Pete, Patty, son père, et bien d'autres personnages tels que Jordan ou Gavin. De nouveaux personnages sont aussi intégrés dans cette nouvelle aventure : Muffy, une employée de l'université, Owen, le nouveau patron de la résidence ainsi que Tad, le petit ami sportif et ...more

Oh Heather Wells! I have been on a binge getting to follow Heather in her journey in the residence halls and what an adventure. I will say for me, the rating wasn't for the mystery but for the characters and their progress. Gavin is a favorite of mine! Now, for the next book
This book was so goofy. I do like Heather Wells. She can be quirky!

I did NOT like how over-the-top Sarah was acting. I know she's written unsympathetically, but that was a bit much. The book EVENTUALLY got better, but this was not my favorite of the Heather Wells books.
