16 Millimeters by Larissa Reinhart

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

"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.

"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 of the Davis Way Crime Caper series

"Hollywood glitz meets backwoods grit in this fast-paced ride on D-list celeb Maizie Albright's waning star--even as it's reborn in a spectacular collision with her nightmarish stage mother, her deer-pee-scented-apparel-inventing daddy...and a murderer. Sassy, sexy, and fun." -- Phoebe Fox, author of The BreakUp Doctor series

"A new series that boasts a quirky cast of characters, engaging dialogue and the liveliness that befits this delightfully amusing and fast-paced drama." -- Dru Ann Love, Dru's Book Musings

"Despite the movie star background Maize is down to earth and cares about everyone and justice. The situations that she finds herself in are humorous, but she isn't a joke. She is a feisty, perceptive young woman." -- Lynn Farris, Hot Mystery Review

This is a great book; this book is the second book in the Maizie Albright Star Detective Mystery series written by Larissa Reinhart. 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.

This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

(I received an advanced copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing it) “Familiarity breeds contempt. So does questionable morality and murder.” Won’t anyone stop thinking of Mazie Albright as Julia Pinkerton, the teenaged Star? Well, it might help if Mazie stopped channeling her. In this, the second of Rheinhart’s new series about the PI in training, Mazie and Wyatt Nash take on a film crew setting up in Black Pines that hire them to “babysit” a former co-star of Mazie’s from her TV show days. And even she’s impressed because the former sidekick has a shot at a real career if she can stay “ clean and sober” for the run of the film schedule. A convoluted soap opera of “ he said, she said” leads to a crazy whodunnit and why as Mazie just keeps ahead of her probation officer and the police in a story that will keep you guessing who the mastermind actually is and why the whole dang thing got so convoluted in the first place. Larissa Rheinhart has returned to Black Pines in full on mystery form as her characters try to keep on track figuring out who, what, when,where and exactly how you hide a gun under spandex. The story will keep you riveted , the writing will keep you laughing and the energy between the characters will keep you coming back for more. Highly entertaining and recommended.

Maizie Albright and Larissa Reinhart have done it again! Action, humor and heart tied me to this delightful mystery from beginning to end! Nash doesn't play a really big role but OH, MY, I think I would read the books just for him. I have caught Maisie's crush. The ex-actress just can't keep from getting drawn into the drama around the business that has followed her to Georgia. Not only is she dying to turn her internship into active investigative time, she is drawn to help those with whom she can relate, not to mention, Nash's business needs the big bucks and she is one of the reasons! From the time she sees what appears to be the dead body of old show mate the neophyte detective refuses to give up on uncovering the muck that is hiding under the covers of the flash of show business but she is also concerned about the person who, contrary to all appearances, she would swear was dead. Nothing is every easy for Maizie anymore but she refuses to give up. Nash is not thrilled for his agency to be drawn so close to the TV industry but he needs the money before his vengeful ex takes over the business. The warmth of Maizie's dad's family and the shadow of her mother's disapproval follow Maizie throughout the novel. I was thrilled to get to read an ARC of 16 Millimeters. Thanks you Ms. Reinhart! I loved it!!!
