Having trouble remembering what happened in the Size 12 series? Here is the recap!


Size 12 Series Recap


Book 1

Size 12 Is Not Fat

Former teen pop star Heather Wells has gained a few pounds — and lost her boyfriend, home, recording contract, and life savings (when Mom took the money and ran off to Argentina). Now Heather's happy again — with her new shape (size 12 is average for an American woman!); new home (she gets one whole floor of a brownstone free in exchange for doing the books of elusive yet alluring private detective Cooper Cartwright); and her new job as the assistant dorm director at one of New York's top colleges. Happy until the body of a student is discovered at the bottom of an elevator shaft where Heather works, that is. Now Heather has to take on yet another job: girl detective! But nothing ticks off a killer more than an ex-pop star sticking her nose where it doesn't belong . . .

Check out the USA Today bestseller that "will leave readers begging for time-outs to control sudden laughing fits" (Publishers Weekly)



Book 2

Size 14 Is Not Fat Either

Heather Wells has settled nicely into her new life as assistant dorm director at New York College’s Fischer Hall—a career that does not require her to drape her size 12 body in embarrassingly skimpy outfits. She can even cope (sort of) with her rocker ex-boyfriend's upcoming nuptials. But she's definitely having a hard time dealing with the situation in the dorm kitchen, where a cheerleader has lost her head . . . literally. Heather teams her up again with gorgeous P.I. Cooper Cartwright, but the murder trail is leading the average-sized amateur investigator into a shadowy world. And if she doesn't watch her step, Heather might soon be singing her swan song!

Winner of the RT Book Reviews Award for Most Humorous Mystery, 2007


Book 3

Big Boned

Assistant dorm director Heather Wells should be happy.  She’s got a job she loves, a shot at getting back into the music business, a chance at a long term relationship, and a boss she likes . . . at least until someone puts a bullet through his head. Now she’s scrambling to protect her students, answer her boyfriend’s “question”, get her landlord, Cooper Cartwright, to realize that by letting her go, he’s making the biggest mistake of his life, and stop a murderer, all while keeping from getting killed herself.

Check out the “cute crimefest” (Publishers Weekly) that became an international bestseller


Book 4:

Size 12 and Ready to Rock

Just because the students at New York College have gone home for the summer doesn’t mean assistant residence hall director Heather Wells gets to relax. Fischer Hall is filled with squealing teen girls attending the first ever “Tania Trace Teen Rock Camp,” hosted by pop sensation Tania Trace herself—who just happens to be newly married to Heather’s ex. But the real headache begins when the producer of a reality TV show starring Tania winds up dead… and it’s clear that the star was the intended victim.  When Heather’s new fiancé Cooper Cartwright gets appointed as Tania’s bodyguard, Heather can’t help but get involved—especially after Tania lets slip her shocking secret, and suddenly Heather realizes her reality is far more dangerously real than anyone ever anticipated.

If you've only read Ms. Cabot's young adult books, you're missing out.” (New York Journal of Books)



Book 5

The Bride Wore Size 12 (in stores on Sept 24!)

Heather’s already stressed with planning her upcoming nuptials to hunky PI Cooper Cartwright. But 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 then Heather’s long-lost mother shows up. With a murder to solve and a wedding to pull off, Heather doesn’t have time for a tearful mother and bride reunion. Instead of wedding bells, she could be hearing wedding bullets.  Heather’s determined to bring the bad guys to justice, even if it’s the last thing she does … and this time, it just might be.

“An exciting mystery and a surprisingly funny caper.” (Booklist)
