I read the first in this series and was offered this for review. I enjoyed the characters and storyline, I liken it to Stephanie Plum but it really is quite different in many ways. I'm glad the two main characters aren't hot for each other all the time as well. This young lady is way more self sufficient than SP. Looking forward to next in this series!
I live to ride my bike.
Another great story with Sofia. She is a former child, now an adult, television star who has given up the "fame." She just wants to live a quite life doing good for people.
As usual, her good intentions puts her in situations that become hilarious.
For a short span of the book, her niece and nephew were the most entertaining characters in the book. This is an enjoyable series with a little sleuthing and many funny situations.
Cantrell writes another easy and enjoyable story in her Malibu Mystery Series. Fun books, very good narration and great relaxation. "I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast."
I am addicted to books. Nothing makes me happier than crawling inside a good book.
Sofia she brings trouble with her wherever she goes.
Yes, the first book in this series and she brings the story to life. I will definately follow this narrator.
Here comes trouble worthy of TMZ

Thank God for books of all kinds and ears to hear
I would. I think this series will do VERY well once it catches on. Not quite as funny as Janet Evanovich or Darynda Jones but still really amusing.
A lot of really likable characters but I guess my fav is the main character, Sophia. The author does a great job of normalizing her (she's a former child actor) and one can't help but cheer her on.
I think my favorite was when Mom came over and let herself in only to find daughter in bed with her 'booty-call dude' only to have him jump up in all his morning glory as others walk in. Sounds cheezy, but it was believable and funny.
Child actor now a 'detective' in training takes on rehab. ok, that's a terrible tag line but the best I can do right now.
I was quite excited to listen to this after enjoying the first in the series. Knowing the characters made the experience more enjoyable and it's always nice to get to know them better, or at least it is in well written books! Narrator is fab!

I read book 1 in this series and had been looking so forward to this sequel! If you haven't read book 1 yet, start there, because it will make book 2 even more enjoyable for you. I was given this second book for free by audiobook blast in exchange for an honest review.
This story continues by following Sofia as she juggles her private life & her professional life, which often times entangle and hilarity ensues. Sofia goes undercover at a rehab clinic to get insider info when an ex patient is found suspiciously dead. This is Sofia's toughest acting gig thus far, and listening to her internal dialogue as she gets into the mindset of "Drug addict Sofia" had me in fits of laughter. Trust me when I say this book will have you laughing and entertained the whole way through. I have such a fun time listening to this series, in huge part because of the wonderful narration by Madeline Mrozek. I am so excited for Book 3 to be made available on audible!
I listened to the first book in this series and enjoyed it enough to want to pick up the second book. This one is soooo much better!
B is for Bad Girls picks up where A is for Asshat leaves off but with a different tone. In this read, Sofia is a bit more settled and fierce and most of the action centers around her. The narrator is the same (BONUS!)
This was a really good listen and the mystery was a great thrill ride. Loved it! Bring on book three.

Yes, it's a fun listen. Not a deep thinker, but just darn fun.
The others in this series of course.
Sofia, of course.
There are laugh out loud moments. Sofia's Niece and Nephew hijinks with cherry pits and MMA SHENANIGANS are great.
I've listen to four of audio books in the Malibu Mystery series. All have left a positive memory in my head.
Thanks for the opportunity to review this title.

Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
I received this book for free for an honest review
First, the one pet peeve I have is when authors/narrators give books out to review but it is the 2nd, 3rd and so on in the series. Because... If I like the book (as I did this one) I already know the highlights of what happened in previous books because they put them in the subsequent books! So now when I go back to read book 1 I will know what happened 🤔 but I'm excited to move on to the next books in the series.
Ok, rant over... This book was about a former child actor who is now investigating a murder and puts herself in rehab to do so, there are funny parts everywhere in this book and I even laughed out loud a few times. She sneaks out of rehab and has to prove to her family she's not addicted to drugs because, of course, the paparazzi got pics of her leaving rehab. Overall a solid story and a fun and easy read.
The narrator did an excellent job with this book, her normal voice, dare I say it, reminds me of the one, the only, the amazing Amanda Ronconi, although she did not have as much range as her she was nice to listen to and did an great job. 👍🏻
Overall, I am definitely going back to read book one and moving forward to read the rest in the series!
