SIZE 12 IS NOT FAT
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
The fabulously funny Cabot debuts her amateur sleuth series featuring down-but-not-out Heather Wells. A former teen music sensation, Heather writes songs and uncovers murder plots in a gritty, vibrant New York setting.
Heather has lost her recording contract and her rock-star boyfriend. In order to keep her Greenwich Village flat, she works two jobs. She manages the accounts for (and nurtures a crush on) the hunky detective who lives downstairs. She also supervises a college residence hall. When a suspicious student death occurs, Heather asks her housemate detective to get involved.
Despite a running gag that soon grows stale and a somewhat lackluster presentation of backstory, Heather is a charming, feisty heroine. With more courage than common sense, she's a perfect fit for the amateur sleuth milieu. (Jan., 368 pp., $12.95)
