From Publishers' Weekly:

Bag the tiara and get out the gun: Heather Wells, former teen idol, turns detective in the cute debut of a new mystery series from bestseller Cabot (The Princess Project and other titles in her Princess Diaries series). After the 20-something Heather's rocker boyfriend dumps her, and her mother and manager flee with her earnings, she becomes an assistant director of an undergraduate residence hall at Manhattan's New York College (read: NYU) in hopes of free tuition. When students start to die mysteriously while "elevator surfing" in the building, weight-conscious, romance-obsessed Heather goes on a crazed hunt to uncover the truth-with an unwavering sense of style. As Magda, Heather's dorm cashier friend, says: "Even if the rest of your life is going down the toilet... at least your toes can still look pretty." Cabot delivers Heather's amateur sleuthing adventures in a rapid-fire narrative that may leave some readers begging for time-outs to control sudden laughing fits. 6-city author tour. (Jan.)

From Library Journal:

Starred Review. Heather Wells was a rock star, a teen sensation by her freshman year of high school. A few years later, she loses her recording contract by insisting on using her own lyrics. A break with her philandering rocker boyfriend, Jordan Cartwright, soon follows. Alone, a has-been, and broke (her mother stole her money and left the country), Heather is offered a room by Jordan's older brother, hunky private investigator Cooper Cartwright, in exchange for doing his billings. And for income, and the possibility of free classes, Heather lands a job as one of New York College's assistant residence hall directors. When two students are murdered under circumstances that the police deem accidental, Heather, suspicious, investigates. Unfortunately, her decision to become an amateur sleuth looks as though it might be the last one she makes. Cabot (The Princess Diaries) has written another book that's sure to delight readers. With its spunky heroine, witty dialog, unforgettable characters, great plot, and outrageously funny situations, this hilarious first installment of Cabot's new mystery series is the perfect book for those patrons looking for something to read while waiting for Janet Evanovich's next Stephanie Plum novel. Cabot lives in New York City and Key West, FL.--Shelley Mosley, Glendale Community Coll. Lib. Media Ctr., AZ (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
