Body doubles, dead bodies, and hot bodies abound…Wait, what? From The Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Larissa Reinhart, the 2018 Silver Falchion Best Cozy Mystery finalist and Reader's Choice Award finalist, the second in the snappy, sassy, and sexy Maizie Albright Star Detective series."Fresh from Hollywood get ready to bubble along with Maizie Albright Star Detective. She's #adorbs." — Jena's Books
#StillAWannabeDetective In continuing her career-makeover quest as a for-real detective, ex-teen and reality star Maizie Albright has a big learning curve to overcome. A sleuthing background starring in a TV show— Julia Pinkerton, Teen Detective—does not cut the real life mustard. It doesn't even buy her lunch, let alone extra condiments. Her chosen mentor, Wyatt Nash of Nash Security Solutions, is not a willing teacher. He'd rather stick Maizie with a safe desk job and handle the security solution-ing himself. But Maizie's got other plans to help Nash. First, win Nash's trust. Second, his heart.
Wait, not his heart. His respect. His hearty respect.
So when a major movie producer needs a babysitter for his hot mess starlet, Maizie eagerly takes the job. But when her starlet appears dead and then not dead, Maizie's got more than an actress to watch and a missing corpse to find. Body doubles, dead bodies, and hot bodies abound when the big screen, small screen, and silent screams collide. Maizie's on the job, on the skids, and on thin ice, hunting a killer who may be a celebrity stalker. And Maizie just might be the next celebrity who gets snuffed.
"Another fun outing for Maizie Albright, former child star. Larissa Reinhart always brings humor and grit to her mysteries." — Terri L. Austin, author of the Rose Strickland Mysteries and the Null for Hire series.
"The author so brilliantly creates an environment where Harvey Weinstein-like behavior could exist, and demonstrates how actresses must walk a delicate line in order to stay employed and still not be victimized. I love seeing Maizie grow as a character, and I absolutely adore the behind-the-scenes glimpses into celebrity culture. Maizie's missteps make each of her successes an absolute joy, and I encourage readers to delve into this lively, funny, and genuinely satisfying series." — Cynthia Chow, Kings River Life Magazine
"How timely is this novel with all the disturbing news coming out of Hollywood! A mixture of adventure, mystery, and romcom. So like Hollywood, you'll never figure out what is real and what is make-believe until you reach the end." — Laura's Interests
"With visually descriptive narrative, humorous quips, witty repartee and a quirky cast of characters, this was a such a fun book to read." — Dru Ann Love, Dru's Book Musing
"I really enjoy this series. Part romcom, part murder mystery, they are the perfect weekend read." — Jenna, Girl With Book Lungs
"The author has a flair for writing witty dialogue, whacky antics, and quirky characters. She does it well and keeps her readers intrigued throughout the story." —-Socrates Book Review

This book was excellent. Just as good as the first one. Great characters and storyline. Kept me guessing who did it until the end. Would recommend to anyone who loves a great read. Can’t wait until the next one is out.
