It seems each new release of Meg Cabot's gets a little more sloppy and less fulfilling than the previous books. If this continues, her books wont be on my priority list of books to buy.
The only downside to this book (and hence the 4 stars) is that it's too short and it wraps up way too fast. After 2 great books of build up, everything is wrapped up in only a matter of pages. I was left not only wanting more, but feeling like the ending was just a bit unrealistic and forced. Still, the book was a joy to read. I just wish it was longer.
When Heather's boss is murdered one morning, Cooper, a private detective by trade, warns her not to get involved. How can she resist, though, especially when some of the residents of her dorm are mixed up in the crime?
I like the concept for this book. Having a murder mystery set in a college dorm and having the characters be students and those who work with students is interesting and fun. Heather herself, though, is really annoying. She's self-centered and says herself that people never think she's as funny as she thinks she is. She is kind of mean and sarcastic to everyone around her, even when she's helping them. She is fixated on her weight and talks constantly about food. I couldn't think of a reason why people would like her, and I especially couldn't see why she had these two wonderful guys both wanting to date her.
The story was decent, but I was put off by the main character.
Anyway, I finished up "Size Doesn't Matter" this morning. It was probably the weakest of the three books and the ending was sort of bizarre. Without giving too much away, I would have settled for a kiss between Cooper and Heather, instead of the whole enchilada. I half expected to read "And then Heather woke up" it was all so picture perfect and out of place.Read more ›

I love the character of heather. She's very down to earth. I am still hoping she'll make a music career comeback, or become director of her residence hall, at least. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Lynne Wilder
