With her third comic mystery, Cabot delivers a light, frothy concoction. The plot is somewhat silly, but protagonist Heather's vibrant voice makes up in style for what the mystery lacks in substance. Fans will also be thrilled to finally see some resolution to Heather's love life.

Former teen pop star Heather Wells isn't sure what will kill her first: starting her mornings with a daily run or foregoing sticky buns for shredded wheat with her new health-nut boyfriend, Tad. Just when Tad has something meaningful to ask her, someone else turns up dead at the dorm where she works. This time it's her new supervisor, college ombudsman Owen Veatch, found shot in the head, and a student who'd been protesting the college's lack of rights for grad-student workers is arrested as the main suspect. But despite the goings-on at Death Dorm, love is in the air, and solving the murder means Heather and her sexy landlord, Cooper, might finally have to get serious. (AVON A, Dec., 304 pp., $13.95)
