Kim (mrsnesbitt) | 47 comments I am a huge fan (no pun intended) of Sue Ann Jaffarian and her Odelia Gray mysteries. Being a plus sized goddess myself, I am very interested in seeing larger women being in the main position of a predominant character and not the side kick. Odelia has a good job, her own life and ends up with a love interest. I love that! Sue Ann is a larger woman herself and she has given larger women a wonderful role model, and gives insight to those who are not larger, what a lot of us go through every day. I have my boyfriend hooked too.

Hi Kim, I've never heard of Sue Ann Jaffarian but the books sound great. Have you read them all? I love discovering wonderful new female protagonists myself so thanks for introducing us to something different!

Kim (mrsnesbitt) | 47 comments I have all of them, including the newest and Sue Ann is one of my friends here on site. The first is called "Too Big to Miss". Happy reading!

Luann (azbookgal) | 46 comments Mma Precious Ramotswe from Alexander McCall Smith's The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series describes herself as "traditionally built." I've only read the first four in the series so far, but plan to eventually read them all.
