Synopsis from Goodreads:

#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.


My Review

Former teen star Maizie Albright is back in action in the second book in the Maizie Albright Star Detective Mystery series. She’s as fun loving and determined to become a full fledged detective as she was in the first book. With the help of her boss, Nash, it should work out, but she can’t stop her attraction for the man and that could be a bit of a problem.

When a movie producer asks Maizie to babysit his leading actress, she immediately agrees. The leading lady happens to be a former co-star of Maizie’s. She has her hands full with this one, but it does give Nash’s company some business. Things immediately get out of hand when a dead body shows up.

It’s always fun to read about Maizie Albright’s antics. She’s funny, adventurous and a romantic at heart. She reminds me a bit of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum. It’s one crazy ride after another for Maizie and her crew. It’s a fast-paced story with many twists and turns to keep you on your toes. It’s a combo of chick lit with cozy mystery which makes it even more enjoyable.

The author has a flair for writing witty dialogue, whacky antics, and a quirky characters. She does it well and keeps her readers intrigued throughout the story. I’m looking forward to the next adventure in Maizie’s life.
