Loved this book! It was a little like Days of Our Plus-Sized Lives. Think you can follow this? Josephine Fuller is kinda friends with Teddy, whose ex-wife Fran is married to Josephine's ex-husband Griffith. Teddy wants Josephine's help to locate his missing plus-sized new girlfriend, who may or may not be involved with Fran's death after Josephine stumbles over the body. And that's the first two chapters or so. I loved it! Lots of twists and turns and new little surprises, and a herione who didn ...more

I knda gulped this one down. I really MUST get a copy of "A Ton of Trouble," which is, sadly, the last book in this series. I am so going to miss it. It will stay on my shelves to be re-read in the future!

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

I was looking for a quick read which would be entertaining but not too demanding, this fit the bill perfectly. Jo Fuller is a plus size woman with some extra curiosity and what seems like a fun job. She deftly unravels several confusing strands and figures out who dunnit. There were some pieces I did not understand as well since this is apparently several books into a series, guess I have some more books to add to my list.

In this murder mystery with an running theme of fat acceptance, Josphine who is a large sized woman finds that her personal life is colliding wih an investigation that she is doing for her employer.

It had a cat, some good sounding food, a few interesting characters and a solution that I didn't immediately guess.

On the negative, the threads got a little numerous and tangly which made it hard to draw this to a smooth conclusion.

Overall, I liked it more than not.

Fun, well written mystery. The lead character is sassy and confident. She loves her body and the author uses her voice to encourage body acceptance. So refreshing!

Being a large woman myself, I thought I would enjoy this but it just didn't capture my interest.
