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 Now that she’s adulting, today’s kids make Maizie feel out of date.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 have read all three books in this series and they just get better and better.
Another delightful read full of all the things I love about Larissa Reinhart….mystery, sassiness, a bit of spice thrown in, with a lot of laughs. This is the third book in the series, and it’s just as good as the previous books. Maizie finds herself in more trouble than before. She is in hot water with her probation officer...now she is mixed up in a bank robbery, with her boss and man she is falling for in the hospital, and now she is helping three teenagers try to find a missing Youtube star...oh there might be a Bigfoot sighting or two as well. However, it’s pretty convenient that the disappearance is connected to the new place she is supposed to be doing her community service. What could possibly go wrong, right? As usual, I was hooked from the very first page of the book! Maizie is sometimes a walking trainwreck, but that is the reason I adore her! She is hilarious, and now teamed up with teenagers, she is even funnier! In this book, she will find herself confronting her past with her ex-fiance. Alas, no one can do that better than Maizie. The storyline and plot were great with lots of twists to keep me guessing. Reinhart knows how to throw in just the right amount of romance. Maybe...just maybe....we will see where her relationship with Nash is going to go. You will have to read for yourself to find out!!!! I have been a fan of Reinhart’s for several years! If you are looking for a series that moves quickly with just the right combination of sass, romance, and mystery, you really can’t got wrong with this one!!!!
Larissa Reinhart is amazing. She can take the zaniest situations and make them feel real! I have never know anyone like Maisie but Ms. Reinhart brings to so to life that her reversion to a hot mess with pushed my anxiety. I had to walk away several times but I had to come back every time. Maisie needed my support. My heart broke for her as her world crashed around her but I belly laughed too many times to count. And I almost cheered, ignore that fist pump, as she started to take back the woman she has become. Yes, she still has a long way to go and I will be there with her to watch the continued growth. I love dynamic characters and Maisie is that in spades.
ONCE A TEENAGE DETECTIVE - NOW AN ADULT?? NC-17: A Maizie Albright Laugh-Out-Loud Comedy Mystery (Maizie Albright Star Detective Book 3) finds former hit teen detective Maizie Albright still working on obtaining her PI License. As usual she is hit head on with all sorts of obstacles that attempt to stop her before she can even begin to find her first clue. Maizie finds herself being stretched in new ways. Her boss (and unrequited love interest) Nash is in a coma after attempting to thwart a crime. Maizie is trying her best to keep Nash Security Solutions afloat while he’s incapacitated. While in desperate need of clients, she wasn’t anticipating dealing with three teenagers, a lost YouTube star or two ex-fiancées! This is Maizie’s reality!! Will teen star Maizie be able to relate to real life teenagers? Does she have the skills to solve the crime without Nash? Maizie is trying her best to prove she is an adult and discovers she’s also be becoming a pretty decent PI along the way. I was provided an ARC of this book by the author. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.
Lots of fun to read. Maizie has her hands full...of men, mysteries, teens, her family, and much more. Entertaining reading. I still don't understand the title. By that rating I expected some offensive (to me) adult content. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book. I am eager to read more of Maizie's adventures.
Big Foot and guns don’t mix well. Maizie Albright is an ex-actress on probation, training to be a private investigator. Left alone to run the office (while her boss is in a coma), Maizie must hold things together. Her to-do list includes getting new clients, collecting a past-due fee, attending therapy sessions, doing community service, and figuring out how to track down a missing person on her own. Sleep can’t fit into the schedule. When three desperate teenagers (appearing on a Bigfoot Trackers U-Tube channel) hire Maizie to find their missing co-star, she can’t say no. Soon men with guns try to kill her, an ex-boyfriend turns up with a massive diamond ring, and her new therapist suggests selfie-therapy. Maizie’s courage and intelligence are sorely tested. Big Foot and guns don’t mix well. This novel is guaranteed to keep readers interested from start to finish. I highly recommend this fast-paced, funny, and interesting mystery. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book.
