CrisTina | 57 comments I too thought Size 14 was a fun read and loved it. I was a little worried after I saw some of the reviews when I bought Size 12 so read it first and then bought 14 and Big Boned...can't wait to read it next.

And the Stephanie Plum series...I absolutely love! Grandma and Lula crack me up!
