Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot

Former pop princess Heather Wells is accustomed to people recognizing her from her days as a bubble-gum mall singer; what she is not accustomed to is having young women falling to their deaths while "elevator surfing" at the New York College residence hall where she works. Although the police believe the deaths are accidental, Heather is sure something else is afoot, and she recruits her hunky landlord, Coop, to assist her in her investigation.

In addition to the drama at her place of employment, Heather is also trying to deal with her ex-fiance, a famous pop singer and Coop's brother, who cannot seem to stay away from her, despite his new, very public engagement. To top things off, Heather knows she is getting close to solving this mystery when she becomes a target of the killer herself! Heather is a real woman, who struggles with her weight, her romantic life, and who cannot seem to stay out of trouble. This is a fun, light read, and I am looking forward to reading the remainder of this series.

Meg Cabot is a prolific writer of children's books (Allie Finkel's Rules for Girls series,) young adult books (The Princess Diaries series,) as well as chick lit titles for adults. This is her first foray into the chick lit mystery genre, which should appeal to fans of her other adult books as well as mystery fans. So far, there are 2 additional books in the Heather Wells series: Size 14 is not Fat Either; and, Big-boned.
