Dying to Be Thin (A Fat City Mystery, #1) by Kathryn Lilley

Dying to Be Thin (A Fat City Mystery, #1) Dying to Be Thin by Kathryn Lilley

The first course in a sleuth series sure to satisfy.

In just a week, plus-sized TV producer Kate Gallagher has been laid off because of her weight and dumped by her boyfriend. So she enrolls in a weight loss clinic in Durham, NC. Soon, Kate's ready to sell her soul for some sweets. But when a diet guru turns up dead with fondue forks where his eyes were, Kate loses her appetite-and has a breaking story on her hands...

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Great start to what is no doubt going to be a fun cozy mystery series. Found myself laughing out loud several times. Kate is a snarky, fun, full of life character and I am very much looking forward to the next couple books in the series, which luckily I have sitting right here.
I love the 'diet' tips at the beginning of each chapter that are taken straight from 'The Little Book of Fat-busters by Mimi Morgan'.
Seems like this series will be following Kate on her never-ending struggle to lose weight, which most of us can relate to at one point in our lives or another. The humor that the author uses is fantastic. You can tell that she knows of what she writes. :grin:
