The latest installment in Cabot's Heather Wells series has it all: mystery, laugh-out-loud humor and a touch of romance. The former pop star is an admirable character who takes charge of her life and attends college after her stardom withers.
Heather, now an assistant director at a New York College dormitory, is working toward her B.A. Her personal life is difficult -- her ex-fiance is getting married soon and she currently lives with his brother, Cooper, a friend and private detective who admonishes her to keep away from crimes.
But Heather becomes entangled in another murder when the head of a cheerleader is discovered in a pot in the dorm's cafeteria. As she investigates, Heather learns some ugly truths about the college's fraternities and dangerous drug-dealing turf wars. Meanwhile, she hopes that her friendship with Cooper will evolve into romance. (Avon trade, Dec., 344 pp., $13.95)
