Big Boned by Meg Cabot | a book hoarder’s shelves

Of course every silver lining ultimately has some black cloud attached. And when the latest murdered corpse to clutter up her jurisdiction turns out to be mey exceedingly unlovable boss, Heather finds herself on the shortlist of prime suspects—along with the rabble-rousing boyfriend bit her high-strung student assistant and an indecently handsome young campus minister who’s been accused of taking liberties with certain girls’ choir members.

With fame beckoning her back into show business as the star of a new kids’ show! Plus Tad’s been working himself up to ask her a Big Question, which Heather’s not sure she has an answer for. Paperbackpages. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Jul 13, Sara sarawithoutanH rated it liked it Shelves: This is probably my least favorite book in the series so far. I thought the mystery was a little formulaic and I didn’t really love the ending. There was a progression in the main relationship that seemed very sudden and random to me. But I still had fun while reading this and look forward to reading the next book. I love Heather Wells the main character. She is so relatable it’s sometimes scary.

Having been an avid fan of the Heather Wells character since I read the first page of ‘Size 12 is not fat’, I’ve avidly followed this series written by Meg Cabot. I’m not usually a fan of chick lit, but the balance of humor, mystery, characters etc in these books makes them so much fun to read.

Heather is a pop tween hit turned college worker just trying to make a living. Shes funny, in love with Cooper but then after you read these books, you’ll find you, the reader, are in love with Cooper alsoshe loves her food, and doesn’t apologise for loving food, especially junk food and coffee. This third installment of ‘The Heather Wells Mystery’ collection is as lovable as the previous two ‘Size 12 is not fat’ and ‘Size 14 is not fat either’.

I shout a yell of agreement merely at the titles. The books are easy to read, yet Cabot still manages to weave a clever mystery into them, so the answers don’t leap out of the page at you. There’s enough going on that the mystery doesn’t take total precedent of the story, there are small yarns going on around Heather which your always eager as to what will happen next. I’m rather giddy at having finished it and getting the ending I was hoping to read, my heart and head went into literal meltdown and at the same time I was sad that I’d finished reading the book.


But then I can read all three over again and I’ve also heard that Cabot has another HW mystery in the pipeline to be written. Definitely recommend to chick lit lovers, to those readers who enjoy a bit of humor, lovable hunky roommates and scatty heroines who work in the ‘Death Dorm’ of New York College.

And people who appreciate their food, and coffee, and don’t worry about calorie content to any extreme degree. Jun 02, Cherice rated it did not like it. I did not know this was the third book in the series. Hopefully 1 and 2 were much better than this one, because I found it ridiculous. The main character Heather is so annoying.

She has a boyfriend, a crush and Cooper who are all dying to be with her and all she does is complain about her size. The romance with the cafeteria lady and security guard was silly. The murder mystery, murderer, solving the mystery and ending of the book were all dumb. I will not be reading a book by Meg Cabot again. Aug 07, Rebecca rated it really liked it. I like Meg Cabot books but some of her novels definitely go in the ‘beach reads’ pile. They’re amusing but not particularly satisfying — much like the junk food Heather Wells is always eating.

The concept for this series is cute: You have to look past the idea that NY detectives are so stupid they couldn’t find their butts with tw I like Meg Cabot books but some of her novels definitely go in the ‘beach reads’ pile.

You have to look past the idea that NY detectives are so stupid they couldn’t find their butts with two hands and a flashlight to find this believable but hey, that’s not so different from most mysteries. Heather’s irrelevant attitude and poor eating habits are where the book gets annoying. In this novel, her boss, Owen, is shot in his office.

Within minutes of discovering his blood soaked, brain spattered body, Heather is craving tacos. I’m sorry, that’s not cute, it’s disgusting on a number of different levels.

Later that afternoon, Heather’s called into a support meeting to deal with the grief and spends the whole time goofing around with her gay best friend, Tom. This also seemed inappropriate. Then there’s the fact that every single student in the school turns to Heather for help instead of the police.

These kids don’t seem too bright despite the fact they got admitted into a prestigious NY college but I suppose that’s just to make Heather shine more brightly. That comparison kind of falls apart though when Heather decides to confront the crazed murderer alone.

You’d think she’d have figured out this was a bad idea from the last two novels. But it all ends up happy and in this book, Heather and Cooper finally get together with 2 pets. Now, if only the author would do something about this character’s atrocious eating habits. I really didn’t like this book. After reading the first two books in the series I felt there was a nice buildup of the story and I really could relate to Heather except the pop star part I move past that and read on.

Wow, talk about rushed ending. Everything happened so fast in regards to Heather’s love life and even though it was pretty obvious she would end up that way it still felt so rushed. Also, the mystery aspect w I really didn’t like this book. Also, the mystery aspect was totally stupid with the worst motive ever! It was just lame The ending to a series I really did enjoy Aug 09, Rita rated it really liked it Shelves: These are the first Meg Cabot books I’ve read and I really have enjoyed them.


But her dialogue and characters are so genuine that it all seems so effortless. It’s fizzy fluff with a zip. If her writing were food, it would be that pop rock cotton candy, which honestly, we all need a little more of in our diet. Jun 19, Thenia rated it really liked it Shelves: Heather is finally dating someone and is relatively happy, even if he’s not the man she’s been in love with. They don’t seem to have that much in common either, but she tries not to dwell on that fact and does her best to take an interest in his hobbies, even going so far as to go running with him.

She has just gotten in to work after that run, only to discover her new boss’s dead body in his office, shot in the head.

She soon finds that she has miscalculated, since the woman is more dangerous that Heather believed and is ready to shoot Heather when the police come to her rescue just in time. With all the threads neatly tied, Bonsd goes home and finally haves a talk with Cooper, who finally makes a move after she tells him that she broke up with her rebound guy, who was too perfect for Cooper’s liking and urged him to “propose” to her, unwilling to give her another opportunity to slip through his fingers hide spoiler ].

Very engaging, like the czbot two books, with a heroine who’s grown up quite a bit and is finally happy. Her story continues in Size 12 and Ready to Rockbut I think I’ll bask in the happy glow of this happy ending for a while before getting to it.

Weirdly I remembered almost nothing about the actual plot of the book so it was fun feeling like I was reading it again for the first time.

Jul 26, Lucie rated it liked cqbot.

Less fun of a read than I thought it bojed be to be honest. The situations were a little too ridiculous for me. I feel like I must have forgotten a lot about the tone of the first 2 books or this one was just really off the mark for me.
