I don't know why I hadn't posted this cover before - well, I did in the Books I'm looking forward List last December - but I hadn't spotlighted it and, since the summary just came out, I decided to do so.
Size 12 and Ready to Rock is the fourth book in the Heather Wells Series - which I might have to re-read in preparation - and I just love it so much. These are very funny books with a bit of mystery and romance, but mostly I would say that they are chick lit.
I love this cover, I think it's my favorite of the bunch of them.
Summary (courtesy of William Morrow Paperbacks catalogue)
It’s summer break at New York College, but that doesn’t mean assistant residence hall director Heather Wells can kick back and relax. The students may have gone home, but Fischer Hall is as busy as ever.Only instead of college freshmen, Heather’s got a dorm full of squealing thirteen- and fourteen-year-old girls—the first ever “Tania Trace Teen Rock Camp,” hosted by pop sensation (newly married to heartthrob Jordan Cartwright, Heather’s ex) Tania Trace.But when the producer of the reality television show that’s filming Tania’s every move at the camp ends up dead, and it becomes clear Tania was the intended victim, Grant Cartwright, head of Cartwright Records, turns to his son, family black sheep and private investigator Cooper Cartwright, for help, desperate to keep his new daughter-in-law—and company’s highest earning star—alive.
Heather knows perfectly well she’s supposed to leave the detecting to Cooper, her ex’s big brother and her own brand new fiancé. But with hysterical mini divas-in-training freaking out all around her—not to mention their mothers —how can she help but get involved? Especially when Tania Trace herself begins to confide in Heather, revealing a secret that may be a little more "reah" than Cartwright Records ever bargained for.
And if an added bonus to solving the crime herself happens to be that Heather can convince Cooper to bury the hatchet with his family and agree to a large wedding, and not the elopement he's been insisting on, so all of Heather's friends can come, then maybe putting her own life on the line to save Tania’s just might turn out to be worth it....
I'm very excited about this book, I remember hearing parts of this summary way-back-when this was meant to be book 3 of the series and was called Phat Chick. I'm glad that I'll finally get to read this story.
Size 12 and Ready to Rock comes out July 10th, 2012.
