A missing Youtube star. A bank heist gone wrong. A mysterious health retreat for celebrities. Too many ex-fiancés. A growing body count. Oh…and possibly Bigfoot. Just another week in the life of Maizie Albright, Star Detective.
From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Larissa Reinhart, the third book in the "sassy, sexy, and fun" Maizie Albright Star Detective series.
"Larissa writes a delightful book. Suspense, romance, and some funny situations. Maizie's a teen star grown up to new possibilities." — Sharon Salituro, Fresh Fiction
#StillDetectiveing As an ex-star of a hit teen detective show, Maizie Albright gets the youth demographic. Or so she thought. Now that she's adulting, today's kids make Maizie feel out of date. At least the teen Youtube stars of Bigfoot Trackers who want to hire her to look into the disappearance and possible murder of their producer. A murder the police find as likely as Bigfoot.
Maizie has her own suspicions about the new celebrity retreat where their missing person was last seen. Particularly when she learns her ex-fiancé has been hired to run the Center. Kind of an issue when she thought Oliver was in prison. Kind of an issue when Nash, the man of her dreams, is out of commission.
Wait, not man of her dreams.
Boss of her fantasies. Professionally speaking, of course.
While Maizie's looking for a missing Youtube star, she's wrangling her mother's wedding, assuaging an overzealous probation officer, and struggling to keep Nash Security Solutions solvent. Conspiracy theories collide with real-life catastrophes beginning with murder and possibly ending with Maizie's life.

“I really needed a talk with the universe and find out what I’d done to tick it off.”
Maizie’s Albright’s flying solo on this case as her boss and mentor, Wyatt Nash, is in the hospital in a coma. Maizie’s kind of forced to keep working due to her probation, but her job keeps getting in the way of her community service requirements, as does a lot of other things, including her mother’s impending wedding. Vicki Albright might have been her manager, but as a mother she leaves a lot to be desired....
This case involves the Wellspring Center, a new high end holistic spa in Black Pine. Since Maizie’s parole officer has arranged her new therapist and her new community service hours, we find our heroine spending time there as her new underage clients are connected to the place in some fashion as well. As Maizie is wont to say...Adulting is hard. Given the circumstances she really is growing up, standing up for herself and following through, in true Maizie style, as best she can.
Mazie’s back! And I for one am very glad to see her. In true Albright fashion, she ticks off some of her friends, keeps running into her past, has run-ins with the bad guys, however she’s also beginning to take responsibility for her actions. I found myself cheering for her as she begins to understand her abilities. But the ending cracks me up and opens the door to a whole new world. A great addition to a fun series. Highly Recommended 5/5
