What has Maizie got herself into this time? Maizie becomes a babysitter for a major movie producer for his trouble making starlet. Although Wyatt doesn’t want to take the job, Maizie volunteers and thus it begins. While babysitting, trouble begins and Maizie is full force into investigating. Additionally, the company is in financial trouble, and Wyatt’s ex-wife wants to sell her portion of the company. Her mother continues to hound her and now Wyatt’s ex-wife hates Maizie and threatens her all the time about going back to California and going to prison. Meanwhile, romance is starting to bud between her and Wyatt. As the murders start to increase, Maizie needs to figure out who and why this is happening. The story kept me on my toes trying to figure out the whodunit. Highly recommend this delightful, enjoyable read.

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 have pre-order a copy of 16 Millimeters but was thrilled to get to read an ARC of the book. Thanks you Ms. Reinhart! I loved it!!!
(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.
Loved it! Maizie made me laugh throughout the entire book! Leaving her life as a TV celebrity, she moves “back home” to be a Private Investigator. She sure can get into a heap of trouble whenever & whatever she’s investigating! She’s bound & determined to become a full fledged private investigator under The tutelage of the man she’s crushing on, her boss. I love mystery & there’s plenty to figure out & solve in 16 Millimeters!

I had so much fun reading 16 Millimeters. Larissa Reinhart knows how to tell a good story that is interesting right up to the last page. I'd often realize I was smiling while reading about Maizie's shenanigans. The things she says to herself are ridiculously funny. Ms Reinhart's characters are believable; some I liked and others I hope to never encounter.
Maizie is working for the only private investigations business in her home town Black Pine, Georgia. So far all she's learned is how to sit at a desk doing paperwork. She is anxious to get out of the office and learn how to do investigations. She knows she needs training but her boss Wyatt Nash, a major hunk, is reluctant to have her work in the field. Their relationship is growing but Wyatt says he can either work with her or date her not both.
The plot was interesting and fast paced. There was never a moment of boredom. Maizie seems to have a knack for finding dead bodies. It's not surprising that she was a possible suspect at one time. I highly recommend this book to those readers who like mysteries with humor.

Maizie Albright, wayward ex-teen tv star, forced to move back home to Black Pine, Georgia by a judge, finds herself in the most unbelievable situations. She has a crazy mom/manager, a good old boy dad, a precocious 6 yr old step-sister, & a smokin’ hot P.I. boss. I love all the many quirky characters. In 16 Millimeters she finds herself babysitting a partying starlet & tripping over dead bodies right & left. Poor Maizie ends up on a crazy roller coaster ride not just trying to find the killer & prevent more murders, but also dealing with the crackling heat snapping between her & boss Wyatt Nash. And while Maizie finds herself in some harrowing predicaments she never gives up. She just channels her old tv characters & plows right on. I can’t wait to see what happens to her next.
