With her upcoming nuptials to PI Cooper Cartwright only weeks away, Heather's already stressed. And when a pretty junior turns up dead, Heather's sure things can't get worse—until every student in the dorm where she works is a possible suspect, and Heather's long-lost mother shows up.
Heather has no time for a tearful mother and bride reunion. She has a wedding to pull off and a murder to solve. Instead of wedding bells, she might be hearing wedding bullets, but she's determined to bring the bad guys to justice if it's the last thing she does . . . and this time, it just might be.

FIRST SENTENCE (Chapter 1): Everything's going to work out.
MEMORABLE MOMENT (Page 355): Kaileigh Harris is frozen in place at the bagel bar, a newly toasted English muffin in one hand (I got the last bagel) and a butter knife in the other, staring wide-eyed at ######* as he lurches towards her.
MY THOUGHTS: What I believe to be the fifth (and rumour has it last) book in the Heather Wells Mysteries series. Whilst this read perfectly well as a stand-alone novel I feel I could have benefited from reading the previous book (if not books) in the series.
A novel about ex-child pop sensation Heather Wells who, whilst working at THE hall of residence at New York College (the place to be after the arrival of His Highness Crown Prince Rashid Ashraf bin Zayed Faisal), inadvertently becomes something of a reluctant heroine.
Quirky and something that little bit different, a perfect read for anyone who is looking for a fun, 'cosy' mystery with a chick-lit feel to it. Whilst I did enjoy The Bride Wore Size 12 for me it was missing something that I couldn't quite put my finger on.
