Good Girls Do, Bad Girls Don't. Now meet Big Girls...

After her plus-size modeling career tanks, Leena Riley becomes a receptionist in her hometown veterinarian's office. Too bad the vet is Cole Flannigan, a boy who taunted her all through school. Good thing Leena has grown into her curves, because he's about to grow very fond of her.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

When her plus-size modeling career doesn't pan out, Leena Riley leaves Chicago and heads home to sleepy Rock Creek, PA, to lick her wounds, save some money, and try again. But her plans veer off course when the only job she can find is as a receptionist for the local veterinarian, sexy, flirtatious Cole Flannigan-a guy she'd decked in the sixth grade when he taunted her about her weight but who now seems to be attracted to her instead. A beautiful, superorganized but sometimes insecure heroine, a magnetic, commitment-shy hero, a cadre of unconventional pets, and a cast of quirky characters from Linz's earlier novels create a lively, often hilarious story that addresses some serious issues and treats fans to a delightful glimpse into the lives of these familiar folk. A non-weight-conscious heroine who isn't constantly on a diet is a refreshing change. Linz (Bad Girls Don't) is a seasoned writer of lighthearted romantic comedy; she lives in the Chicago area.

Leena Riley left Rock Creek, Pennsylvania dreaming of becoming a plus-sized model. However, her aspirations never prove fruitful so the big woman returns home to start over.--------------- She reluctantly obtains work as the office assistant at Dr. Cole Flanigan¿s veterinary clinic. Her hesitation goes back to her school days when Cole, though two grades below her, would unmercifully tease her about her size until she showed him what a big girl can do when she knocked him out. Now Cole the hunk is attracted to Leena, but she does not believe it besides she plans to soon try again to make it in the city as a plus size model.--------------- BIG GIRLS DON'T CRY is a laugh out loud humorous contemporary romance as once again Cathie Linz proves that BAD GIRLS DON'T this time CRY at least not in Rock Creek. Leena and Cole are an interesting pairing because he is tentatively her boss and their high school history. The return of much cast from the previous jocular tale adds to the feel that readers have of visiting friends in this Pennsylvanian town. Lighthearted yet with a serious message on self esteem as healthy chunky curves are fine.-------------- Harriet Klausner

This book reads like a sitcom. It was laugh out loud funny through the majority of it. It was light and funny never really allowing you to get into the minds or emotions of the characters. The characters are quirky, funny and sometimes a little annoying. Simply put, it was cute fluff. The book is short too (about 200 pages in length) which left me feeling like parts of the story were missing. While reading the book, I enjoyed myself; afterward, I felt a little let down.

This was a very good book. I flowed very well and kept up turning the pages. Loved the story line.

To me, this book was very good. I'll have to admit though that it was a bit slow to get into, but after the first 50 pages, it turned out ok. The only thing that I didn't really like was that Leena kept denying that she liked Cole. Their arguments were a bit annoying, but, other than that, it was an overall good read. The ending was my absolute favorite. I would recommend this book to any girl who loves a good laugh-out-loud romance that will leave them wanting more.
