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.

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.

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.

Great way to round off the Heather Wells trilogy. I found it cute and funny and the characters easy to relate to just like the first two books. I thought the actually story line was not as good in this book as the other two but it was all worth it in the end =). If you read the other two books (size 12 is not fat, size 14 is not fat) then I highly suggest you finish off this one too. Enjoy!!

Not at all what I expected. It was a great book. I enjoyed the humor in it and all the characters. Would read it again later on.

This is the third in the Heather Wells books, and I enjoyed it as far as fluff reading goes. Heather does manage to find herself in more trouble, as she just can't stay away from trying to solve yet another murder in her residence hall. More laugh out loud moments in this one, and it was a pretty good read overall. I think out of the three books in the series, I enjoyed the second one the most though.

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.

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.

This is the third book in the Heather Wells Mystery series.

Another death! In less than a year working at Death Dorm, this time her boss. I say quit your job. Too many deaths in less than a yrs time.

This was a very easy who dun it. You knew who the Murder was at the begining if you are paying attention to the details.

Heather Wells will never make it as a Detective, she is always in trouble at the end, nearly getting herself killed. This women does not have any instincts.

In the end, everything is wrapped up neatly with a Bow.

Easy reading book and cute storyline. The last half of the book lost my attention though.

This is a fast read, not the best I ever read, but still entertaining. Heather Wells is an ex-child singing star. Her mother stole all her money (and her manager) and ran off to Argentina. She has a hot boyfriend but yearns for another. Her boss is found shot in the head. Accidental? Of course not! She works for a college and one of the dorms has become known as Death Dorm. There were 2 books before this one that deals with those, I guess. Does Heather find the killer? Does she escape with her life? Does she keep the new hottie OR end up with her true love?

There are some extremely funny parts and I found myself laughing out loud at them but there could have been more.

Mystery, love, and some fun. I guess it does have it all!Anyway, a fast, fun read.

This is the 3rd book of the series, featuring Heather Wells. The two other books are 1. Size 12 Is Not Fat, and 2. Size 14 Is Not Fat Either. I would definitely read those before reading this book to gain the background that is not fully explained in this 3rd novel of the Heather Wells Mystery series. I read the book very quickly, and was glad to have some finality to some events started in the first book. It was written in a manner that another book could be added to the series, but also is created in a manner that brings it back full circle. Enjoyable and fun read!
