GoodReads Summary: Heather Wells is used to having her cake and eating it too, but this time her cake just might be cooked. Her wedding cake, that is.Expected publication date: 24/09/13
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.

Meg Cabot is one of my favourite authors, reading a book by her gives me that warm enveloping feeling of coming home.
In TBWS12 Heather has got a lot on her plate. Not only does she have wedding plans to make, but she also has to deal with: yet another death, a VIR (Very Important Resident), and her mum(!).
Heather has really grown throughout the series. In the final book you can see that she’s happy with where’s she at, because she 1) no longer obsesses over her weight 2) is marrying the man of her dreams 3) has a wonderful and supportive array of friends and 4) has a job that she loves. She's come along way since book 1 and I for one am proud of her.
I love the relationship between Heather and Cooper. Their constant back and forth is hilarious, and Cooper's protectiveness towards Heather is sweet. I also like how Cooper doesn't immediately rush to Heather’s side thinking that she needs be rescued. Instead he lets her handle the situation -like the tough cookie she is- on her own, and is there and ready to jump in should she need him.
And of course where would the Heather Wells Mysteries series be without it's colour cast of characters. From Gavin the flirt, and Magda the lady with the bubbly personality to Cooper's crazy sisters and Lisa, Heather's boss. This wonderful bunch add a good dose of humour and fun to the book.
Overall, for a happily ever after girl like myself I thought it was a perfect end to the series.
"I'll have a fingers sandwich for you when I get home, big boy," I say, lowering my voice to a sexy growl.
Cooper sounds delighted.
"Whoa. Is that a promise?"
"Uh..." I was actually joking. I'm not even sure what a finger sandwich is, in sexual terms. Is it a thing?
