Audible Editor Reviews

Former singer and current assistant dorm director Heather Wells is drawn into another mystery investigation when the head of a college cheerleader turns up in the dorm kitchen with no body attached. Kristen Kairos entertains as the sweet, sassy, and a bit overly critical of herself Heather, who is pretty sure she is on a path to happiness, but befuddled why it has to be littered with hysterical students, an ex-con father, and an ex-lover whose upcoming "Celebrity Wedding of the Decade" isn’t keeping him from constantly calling her. On the upside, she isn’t complaining that her landlord, a handsome private investigator, is also in the mix..

Publisher's Summary

Former pop star Heather Wells has settled nicely into her new life as assistant dorm director at New York College -- a career that does not require her to drape her size 12 body in embarrassingly skimpy outfits. She can even cope (sort of) with her rocker ex-boyfriend's upcoming nuptials, which the press has dubbed The Celebrity Wedding of the Decade. But she's definitely having a hard time dealing with the situation in the dormitory kitchen, where a cheerleader has lost her head on the first day of the semester. (Actually, her head is accounted for; it's her torso that's AWOL.)

Surrounded by hysterical students, and with her ex-con father on her doorstep and her ex-love bombarding her with unwanted phone calls, Heather welcomes the opportunity to play detective...again. If it gets her mind off her personal problems -- and teams her up again with the gorgeous P.I. who owns the brownstone where she lives -- it's all good. But the murder trail is leading the average-sized amateur investigator into a shadowy world. And if she doesn't watch her step, Heather will soon be singing her swan song!

    "Read the books and enjoyed in audio as well"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Size 14 Is Not Fat Either to be better than the print version?

    No, I liked both versions very much.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the Heather/Cooper dynamic. This particular story was fun and engaging. Of course Heather periodically irritates me, but that's mostly because she's not yet laying a big ol' kiss on Cooper. Oh and she has a talent for putting her life in jeopardy ;)


    What about Kristen Kairos’s performance did you like?

    Good job on the variety of voices. She also brought Heather to life. Having read the book first, I wasn't sure if I'd feel a disconnect to Heather and the characters, but I was pleasantly surprised. I would absolutely listen to a story narrated by her again.


    Any additional comments?

    Entertaining, slight mystery, family drama, and a bit of romance (or at least romantic aspirations!)... All in all a fun story!

    "You won't be able to stop listen it."

    I already love meg cabot's books but with Kristen Kairos' performance it was amazing. It's a shame the other two titles of the series isn't with Kristen. If you want to laugh and listen to a curious history this title shouldn't be missing on your audible's library!

    "Heather Wells strikes again"

    I love Meg Cabot, and the Heather Wells books are some of my favorites. I could do without the song exerts at the front of each chapter but other than that I find these books highly entertaining and hope that she does more with these characters.

    "Enjoyable"

    The main character is very enjoyable and easy to like. The book isn't all that deep but very funny in places.

    "Not so great."

    This book was king of boring. I managed to get through it but was glad when it was over. Not very exciting and the headless cheerleader just seemed out of place with the rest of the characters feel of the book.

    "Really Bizarre"

    A really sick premise starts this book out on the wrong foot and a weird plot just ocntinues to make this book not one of my favorites. IT was, of course, Meg Cabot, :) But this was definitely not one of her best. I would suggest How to Be Popular. That is a great one.
