And there’s still time to enter the Heather Wells Bride Wore Size 12 Sweepstakes! Become one of 45 lucky hostesses to win party favors and books to throw a Heather Wells Wedding Shower. Go here for all the details!

Here’s what a few reviewers have had to say (sorry, I can’t help it. Mysteries are the hardest stories in the world to write — for me anyway — and also my favorite books in the world to read—also TV shows to watch—so when I get a nice review for one I’ve written, I feel VERY VERY EXCITED!!!! AND I HAVE TO SHARE IT! IN ALL CAPS!!!!)

From Publishers Weekly:

Bestseller Cabot neatly blends crime, humor, and a touch of romance in her fifth Heather Wells whodunit (after 2012’s Size 12 and Ready to Rock). While handling the demands of freshmen orientation at Manhattan’s New York College, Heather also listens to parental complaints about room assignments at Fischer Hall, the student residence where she works as a supervisor. Recently popularized by the arrival of Crown Prince Rashid, Fischer Hall is also the site of the untimely death of a new resident adviser, Jasmine Albright. Heather works to fit together the pieces of the puzzle in Jasmine’s demise even as she continues to plan for her upcoming wedding to her dreamy fiancé, Cooper Cartwright. Multidimensional characters, from the dorm handyman to the arrogant yet elusive prince, are a plus, but it’s the simmering mystery behind the suspicious death that propels this installment to its surprising conclusion. (Oct.)

And from Booklist (I’m excerpting this one since most of it is a re-cap of the plot summary, which you just read, above):

Heather Wells is trying to juggle her wedding plans with registration week at the residence hall where she is assistant director. (She) rises above the craziness to take care of everyone and solve the crime in what is both an exciting mystery and surprisingly funny caper. Cabot splices realistic details of dorm life with humorous descriptions of wedding planning, along with rapid-fire, smart commentary on everything from hovering parents to women’s kills at target shooting….—Amy Alessio

Wow! Can you tell I’m VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK?

Well, I have to go pack for my book tour now, but before I do, I know you’re probably wondering, what is with all those cute photos of that couple getting married? Who can they be? OK, I’ll tell you: They’re my brother and his new wife, who just got hitched in Mexico!!!! Margaritas for EVERYONE!!!!

(Except me, I obviously have a lot of work to do!)
