Too Big To Miss by Sue Ann Jaffarian is a murder mystery with a plus size heroine. Odelia Grey is a never married middle aged paralegal who feels like her life is in a rut. She then receives news that one of her close friends has committed suicide. Odelia soon learns that her friend,Sophie London, has many secrets that she was not aware of. As Odelia goes through Sophie's things she begins to suspect that there is more to Sophie's suicide, she begins to suspect murder. The question is not only who but how since Sophie's "suicide" was seen live over the Internet by 45 or 50 people.
Odelia Grey is a great character. I loved that she is plus sized. I felt that Sue Ann Jaffarian had the insecurities of a plus size woman down pat. Even though I figured out who down it halfway into the book; I still was not sure until the end. There are a lot of suspects that I was left wondering to the end. I loved this positive role model for women of any size and of any age. This is the first book in the Odelia Grey Mystery series. I have the next book The Curse of the Holy Pail from the library and I am looking forward to reading it. 4 Stars
