Heather Wells Rocks! Or, at least, she did. That was before she left the pop-idol life behind after she gained a dress size or two -- and lost a boyfriend, a recording contract, and her life savings (when Mom took the money and ran off to Argentina). Now that the glamour and glory days of endless mall appearances are in the past, Heather's perfectly happy with her new size 12 shape (the average for the American woman!) and her new job as an assistant dorm director at one of New York's top colleges. That is, until the dead body of a female student from Heather's residence hall is discovered at the bottom of an elevator shaft. The cops and the college president are ready to chalk the death off as an accident, the result of reckless youthful mischief. But Heather knows teenage girls . . . and girls do not elevator surf. Yet no one wants to listen -- not the police, her colleagues, or the P.I. who owns the brownstone where she lives -- even when more students start turning up dead in equally ordinary and subtly sinister ways. So Heather makes the decision to take on yet another new career: as spunky girl detective! But her new job comes with few benefits, no cheering crowds, and lots of liabilities, some of them potentially fatal. And nothing ticks off a killer more than a portly ex-pop star who's sticking her nose where it doesn't belong . . .

We find out that the main reason she decides to take the job she does is to go to school (for free) to get a degree to make her more ...

Zastanawiałam się jak będzie wyglądać powieść tego typu napisana przez Meg Cabot. Szczerze mówiąc początkowo bałam się przeczytać tę książkę, żeby "nie zepsuć" sobie obrazu kryminałów, które uwielbiam. Myślałam, że "Zbrodnia w rozmiarze XL" będzie raczej parodią kryminału (znając charakter pani Cabo...
Read in 2010 This book was recommended to me as a 'good mystery novel'. Skeptical about it, I read it anyway. So far, I've learned not to take books I'm sure I'm not going to like. I do not like convincing people to read a book that I find good, and I don't like them convincing me to read somethin...
This was cute. Heather was quirky. Cooper a bit of mystery. I can't wait to see how this series unfold! And I totally agree that size twelve is not fat! LOL
