When her close friend Sophie London commits suicide in front of an online web-cam by putting a gun in her mouth and pulling the trigger, Odelia's life is changed forever. Sophie, a plus-sized activist and inspiration to imperfect women, is the last person anyone would ever have expected to end her own life.

    Reader Beware

    Open this book with care. Before you realize what has happened you will find yourself engrossed in this spendid work. Ms Jaffarian introduces us to Odelia Gray, a full time paralegal and friend turned part time sleuth.We eagarly join Odelia, who by the way is 'Too Big to Miss' as she works her way through the maze that the dubious Ms Jaffarian has created for her and us. In this thrilling mystery, the author finds the time to present us with social and personal issues that occur when you are 'Too Big to Miss' but skillfully avoids overwhemling the reader with those issues. 'To Big to Miss' is a wonderful whodoneit that is simply too good to miss. Kudos, Ms Jaffarian.

    Really Enjoyed!!

    This book was different and was fun to read. The heroine is a sweet, very smart woman and is also plus size and has to deal with the prejudices that surround her. She helps other people in a group that she is involved with who have trouble dealing with these prejudices, etc. Would definitely recommend!

    You Go, Odelia!

    Every hero or heroine you see on TV or in a movie or read about in a book or magazine is slim. Here is an interesting, attractive, smart heroine who "has more to love." She is definitely a BBW!
    This book kept me guessing until the very end, and the twists and turns are amazing. Let's hear it for the fat girls!

    A Mystery Book Not To Miss

    I was pleasantly surprised to find a book by a new author that kept my interest from cover to cover. The storyline was both suspenseful and cleaver. As an avid reader of another mystery author (MHC), this book is in the same class! As usual, I tried to solve the mystery before the end of the book, and this book was so cleaverly written, I was fooled up to the very end. I am looking forward to many more stories by Sue Ann Jaffarian and her main character, Odelia Grey - who is Too Big Too Miss!!!
