I really liked the previous 2 books in this series but this 3rd book couldn't hold my attention. I can't give too many specifics because I just couldn't force myself through it. It's gotten old, Death Dorm is still Death Dorm, seriously how many murders can happen in one college campus dorm semester after semester?? It's past the point of being funny what Heather Wells gets herself into and gotten to the eye roll and thinking "are you seriously going with this for a 3rd time?!?"

Well. I've now read all 3 of the Heather Wells books, all in a row, in about 2 weeks time. I'm looking forward to reading something else.

I flew through this one. More in an effort to just finish it already. The mystery in this one was, well, boring. Heather didn't have to try too hard. And if no one in the story cared about the character who was murdered, why should I? There was no depth to this one. Not as good as the other two. Like Ms. Cabot had the "Heather Wells story template", but she just didn't feel like filling in too many details this time around.

I have to admit, I'm a little amazed at how prolific Ms. Cabot is. Maybe her books would be better if she wasn't writing so darn many? Quality over quantity, you know?

:( I was disappointed with this one. I loved the first 2 books in the series. This one happened too fast. It only spanned through 2 days of Heather Wells. It all went too quickly and I was not impressed.

The 3rd in the Heather Wells series.

I have to say, not as good as the first two but still a worthwhile read.

Where the first two focus more on Heather solving the crimes, this one seemed to almost put that on the back burner. Characters that were prominently featured in the first two just have a one page or so of interaction.

A little disappointing for the series but I still managed to read it in about 4 hours.

This book is not as good as the second book in the series, and I strongly suggest reading size 14 is not fat either before reading Big Boned. This third book in the series talks more about the murder instead of Heather's love life, which can be confusing for some folks.

To me this just wasn't one of Meg's best works and honestly I hope this was the end to the series..though I'm doubting it..but I'm hoping.

Better than "Size 14 Is Not Fat Either" Still just a fun quick easy read. Not the most creative author in my opinion, but not the worst either.

Couldn't put it down. The final book in the Heather Wells series. I am sorry to see it end.

I really liked this book. Heather Wells is a great main character. The books have humor and are believable. Sarah Rue should play her if tehy evre turn these books into a movie.
