SHE PLAYED ONE ON TV, BUT NOW THAT HER LIFE DEPENDS ON IT, CAN MAIZIE ALBRIGHT ACT LIKE A DETECTIVE FOR REAL?
For fans of romantic comedy mysteries like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series and Meg Cabot's Heather Wells Mysteries. The Wall Street Journal bestselling and international-award winning author Larissa Reinhart brings her readers the first in the Maizie Albright Star Detective series, Hot Mystery Reviews' "Top 10 Mysteries for Book Clubs."
"Child star and hilarious hot mess Maizie Albright trades Hollywood for the backwoods of Georgia and pure delight ensues. Maizie's my new favorite escape from reality."— Gretchen Archer, USA Today bestselling author
Three Teen Choice Awards, One Emmy Nomination, and several Maxim covers later, Maizie Albright was an ex-teen star, stuck in reality show hell, and standing before a California judge.
She has one chance for a new life: return home to Black Pine, Georgia, and get a job that has nothing to do with show business.
So why not become a private detective—the person she played during the happiest days of her life?
She's got 10 days to get and keep the job.
She has to convince the only private investigator in town to hire her.
She lost the client's wife on the first day. And the woman may be dead.
She just might be falling in love with her new boss. Although she just might have lost him his business.
But what has she got to lose, other than imprisonment, her dignity, and possibly, her life?

Okayish language feelings.
I haven’t finished the book entirely yet but it annoys me that there is cursing/swearing in this book. I am not even a teenager and I can tell the words are bad and it makes me uncomfortable. If there was no cursing/swearing I would happy with this book but since there is I am not very fond of the writing. Don’t get me wrong the plot is good and all but not the language of writing. I would still recommend this book but I would give them a little heads up about the language.
I found it hard to relate to Maizie mad her constant talk about expensive clothes etc. That put me off right away. The book was way too long and I didn’t like most of the characters.
Best story I’ve read in awhile- Laugh out loud funny! I’m sure the next one will be great as well.
