4:11PM - Book recs: Mysteries with female protagonists but without weight/body shaming?
I have recently re-discovered my love of mystery novels, especially ones starring women, but I've also discovered that a distressing proportion of mystery novels with female protagonists involve serious weight-shaming, which pretty much ruins the experience for me. Do any of you have an recs for mystery novels featuring women that do not include the protagonist worrying about the size of her ass or how many calories are in her lunch, any major character making disparaging remarks or having disparaging inner monologues about the size of anyone's body, or the narrative using fatness as shorthand for moral failing? I'll really take anything that fits those qualifications, but I'm particularly fond of police procedural/forensic mysteries, and if it involves serial killers or has a romantic subplot, that would be extra-awesome. Thanks in advance.
