Y'all know I am Meg Cabot trash, but I have to admit I was pretty bored for most of this. HOWEVER: the ending totally saved it with all of it's cheesy glory and I can't wait to see how the rest of the series plays out. Squeeeee!

This is probably my least favorite book in the series so far. I thought the mystery was a little formulaic and I didn't really love the ending. There was a progression in the main relationship that seemed very sudden and random to me. But I still had fun while reading this and look forward to reading the next book.

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 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

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.

Heather is finally dating someone and is relatively happy, even if he's not the man she's been in love with. They don't seem to have that much in common either, but she tries not to dwell on that fact and does her best to take an interest in his hobbies, even going so far as to go running with him.

She has just gotten in to work after that run, only to discover her new boss's dead body in his office, shot in the head. Determined to stay out of the investigation this time, unwilling to face the sa

Solid narration. Weirdly I remembered almost nothing about the actual plot of the book so it was fun feeling like I was reading it again for the first time.

Less fun of a read than I thought it would be to be honest. The situations were a little too ridiculous for me. I feel like I must have forgotten a lot about the tone of the first 2 books or this one was just really off the mark for me.

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 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 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
3.5 stars
I didn't like this one as much as I did the first two in the series but I still enjoyed it. The ending made up for all the not so great parts in the rest of the book. I've been looking forward to this since we first met Heather and her landlord in the first book and I'm happy it finally happened. I'm really looking forward to reading more about Heather and her friends some more.
I forgot how fun this series is! Heather always ends up in the weirdest situations. And I loved the ending of this book.

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

Even though this series is cheesy and unlikely I have to admit I'm kind of hooked. My life is super busy right now so it's nice reading a simple, funny and fast paced book.
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.

This is my second Meg Cabot - Heather Wells book. These books are kinda fun. If you are looking for deep, complicated mysteries, this is not your book. On the other hand, it is a perfect on the beach or stuck at the airport book. Also, I really like the main character Heather Wlls. She is so real, sometimes so scatter brained, it is funny. Fifteen things are happening all around her st the same time and she has to keep jumping from one to another, it is hilarious!! So all in all , an easy good r ...more

Yay! Loved how this book ended. I find the Heather Wells character to be so likable and humorous. This series has been a really fun summer read and I'm looking forward to continuing with book #4.

In my review of Size 14 Is Not Fat Either (the second book of the Heather Wells series), I said that I wanted less body-shaming because it was completely exhausting in that book. This book did that, but not much else. The plot itself was difficult to get through and the premise of the murder just made me want to close the book and walk away and just leave it sitting there, never to be touched again. But I believe in chugging through a book til the end just to see what happens, just in case it ge ...more

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.

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

This is by far the best and funniest of the series. Within the first chapter, I was laughing hysterically, and remained amused throughout the entire novel. Heather Wells is the kind of character I relate to. She's a bit clueless sometimes, finds herself in ridiculous situations, but she's a good person and tries her best to make things right. I love her! And Cabot has a talent for making her guy characters irresistible. I want a Cooper!

The mystery was very predictable; however, the way it's exec

This was a very fast read. Most of my remarks would fall under the spoiler category, so just a few milder ones: The run in the park at the start with Heather's fear of losing important body parts had me snorting in a very embarrassing way on my train ride home. Then the "murse" thing, really, some words crack me up every time. And then the Garfield hugging thing at the end, still wiping my streaming eyes ... (view spoiler) ...more
