Publisher's Description

A feast of romance and laughter featuring a delightful and courageous heroine that you can relate to no matter what your size.

Convinced that her larger size relegates her to wallflower status, Freddie Heinz hides behind the wedding cakes she creates as a professional baker. But life is about to change for Miss Invisible.

First of all, Freddie's found a new friend who encourages her to come out of her shell. Then Hal, the cute veternarian, starts showing interest in the woman behind the delightful cakes. And when Freddie decides to break every rule in the "big girl's" book and find out who she really is, life gets even more exciting--and hilarious.

Cinderella, look out! Miss Invisible is becoming the belle of the ball--and having a ball in the process. Because when you finally find God's call for your life, any size is the right size--and love can see what the rest of the world passes by.

    This book was as yummy and satisfying as Freddie's cakes! I am not a "big" girl, but I am smack in the middle, which means I am not one of the "beautiful" people, and I was overweight until recent years. Plus, I still eat dessert every day, whether everybody else likes it or not. Therefore, I could sympathize and empathize with Freddie, who--hallelujah--cared more about her brain than her body size. I adored Deborah and her family, and cheered for Deborah when she helped Freddie find her inner confidence. (Read the scene between Deborah and Freddie's dad--it's a kicker!) Hal and Simon are both great guys, but I like the fact that Laura subtly pointed out that the presence of a man in her life is not what made Freddie/Kate happy or fulfilled (kudos to Freddie on the name change). Read this--one size fits all!

    Freddie is an overweight baker who is used to being invisible, overlooked, passed over. Hal, the new veterinarian, doesn't mind her size. Neither does Simon, the English chef. So, Freddie's not so invisible anymore. Although she wishes she were invisible where her father is concerned. This is a tale of one woman's self-discovery and healing. Laura Jensen Walker effortlessly conveys the importance of good friends and the ability to be flexible, love yourself and forgive others - not necessarily in that order. "Miss Invisible" will make you think, laugh, sigh and cry regardless of your size.

    I found this to be a thought provoking book swirled with just the right amount of humor. "Freddie" short for Fredrika is a talented cake decorator. She deals daily with a demanding, demeaning boss. Freddie meets an inspiring Christian woman named Deborah whose friendship helps her discover what a special young woman she really is. Freddie finds release from a lifetime of stereotyped rejection because of her weight, and a true love before the novel ends. This was a delightful story that was hard to put down until completed. Laura Jensen Walker has woven a wonderful tale.

    I have so enjoyed each Walker book, but I consider Miss Invisible a cut above the rest. The writing is seamless and fun. A great example of big-girl chic-lit or would that be chunk-lit? The almost thirty Fredricka 'Freddie' is plagued by other important issues including: a history of abuse from her father and stepmother who always found fault in Freddie, harassment from her boss, being ignored everywhere she goes, and a rocky love-life 'at best'. In fact, call it a non-existent love-life. But Freddies wit and resilience shine through in spite of her lack of self-worth. When God puts Deborah into her path, Freddies world begins to change for the better! The writing was so good, the story so compelling, the setting so enticing, the characters so unique and real, and the situations so gripping. I could not put it down. I carried it with me everywhere, hoping Id need to wait for roadwork or at the Dr.s office. It was that good. I loved it!

    What a great writer!!! I loved this book. It is humorous, thought provoking, and is hard to put down. The message on body image is one that ALL woman need to see and hear. I have passed this one on to my teenage niece.
