Body doubles, dead bodies, and hot bodies abound.... Wait, what?

The Wall Street Journal best-selling author Larissa Reinhart presents the Silver Falchion finalist for best cozy mystery and Reader's Choice awards, the second in the snappy, sassy, and sexy Maizie Albright Star Detective romantic comedy mysteries. 

"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)

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.

"I love seeing Maizie grow as a character, and I absolutely adore the behind-the-scenes glimpses into celebrity culture. I encourage readers to delve into this lively, funny, and genuinely satisfying series." (King's River Life Magazine)
