The Bride Wore Size 12 by Meg Cabot - TLC Book Tour


• Paperback: 400 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (September 24, 2013)

Heather Wells is used to having her cake and eating it too, but this time her cake just might be cooked. Her wedding cake, that is.

With her upcoming nuptials to PI Cooper Cartwright only weeks away, Heather’s already stressed. And when a pretty junior turns up dead, Heather’s sure things can’t get worse—until every student in the dorm where she works is a possible suspect, and Heather’s long-lost mother shows up.

Heather has no time for a tearful mother and bride reunion. She has a wedding to pull off and a murder to solve. Instead of wedding bells, she might be hearing wedding bullets, but she’s determined to bring the bad guys to justice if it’s the last thing she does . . . and this time, it just might be.

My Thoughts:

First thing I thought?  Darnit, this book is part of a series and I haven't read the previous ones. 

I'm iffy like that, I'm the type who HAS to read a series in order, so I'm a little hesitant at first if I come across a book that is part of one and I haven't been following along.  Thankfully though, most times I am lucky enough in that the book I read can be a stand alone novel and I don't have to feel like I missed out on anything.

So was the case with this one.

Oh my word, can I just say that as much as I'm not a mystery fan, I have started enjoying these kinds of books? 

What a fun story this one was.  There was craziness, and chaos and a little drama and comedy too.  And if that wasn't all, out pops up Heather's mom who once upon a time took off with all of her earnings AND ran away with her manager LOL

Things couldn't be more crazy for Heather, who is having to plan her wedding while trying to solve a murder.

I honestly couldn't put this one down, and I've now gotten my hands on Meg Cabot's previous books in The Heather Wells Mysteries series.  Books 1-4 will now be read and I'm sure enjoyed just as much as this one.  I think I'll go as far as saying that I'm becoming a mystery genre fan, and all thanks to Meg Cabot.

Thank you to TLC Book Tours for providing me with a review copy.
