Publisher's Summary

An old friend murdered and a new friend in jeopardy.

For fans of romantic comedy mysteries, Veronica Mars meets Stephanie Plum in the seventh book in the Wall Street Journal best-selling Maizie Albright Star Detective series. 

#DisguisedDetectiving... Maizie Albright might have once played a (teenage) private investigator on TV, but she’s now living the (adult) part. Her (mother’s) name is on her business cards. Her (boss’) appointment book is brimming with new clients. And her bank account has grown large enough to finally trade in her dirt bike for an actual new (pre-owned) vehicle.

And then there’s Wyatt Nash. Love of her life. Future father of her...wait.

And then there’s Wyatt Nash. Future partner in her business. Not now. Later. Right now, they’re waiting for Maizie to get her PI license and for Nash to get out of the red so they can get on with...

Just what, Maizie isn’t so sure. But she is sure about one thing. She’s ready to take on her own cases. To prove she’s more than just a (washed-up actress) assistant private eye.

When Maizie finds her costume designer friend killed during a masquerade gala, it’s the opportunity Maizie hoped she’d never get. An investigation into an old friend’s murder. But one that’s also put her new friend in jeopardy. While the police begin their inquiries, Maizie starts her own case. Her investigation may cost Maizie her job, her relationships, and her life.

Maizie is getting better

I love the Maizie Albright character and she is definitely developing in this book. I feel like we all have a little bit of Maizie in us, when she’s faced with a difficult situation she fakes it till she makes it. Like investigating a murder and creating the character in your head that you want to be and then attempting to become it. It’s like she’s her own full-time professional coach. Her relationship with Nash is also developing which is nice to see. Definitely a fun book.

Entertaining mystery

Maizie Albright is yet again surrounded by death. Waiting for her PI licence and to work side by side in partnership with the man she adores Wyatt Nash, Maize now has to solve the case of her murdered friend. In taking on this investigation she will put everything she loves and holds dear to her at risk, including the job she has fought so hard for.

This series has gotten better and better and I really enjoyed this addition to the series. There were numerous twists and turns in and I admit I was caught off guard on a couple of occasions. The suspense built throughout and the addition of some junior sleuths added to the witty banter that was throughout the story.

Will Maize be able to solve the case and keep not only herself but everyone she loves safe?

The narrator Joan Dukore really brought this story to life for me.

Just gets better and better

I loved this book. I have enjoyed all the books in this series but I think this has been my favourite so far and at book seven that is quite an achievement. There is so much in this story to love but for me I think it was the inclusion of the spy squad, you just have to laugh at a group of four year olds helping to solve a murder. The rest of the characters are just as much fun and I can easily imagine watching them on tv each week. The name dropping is a lot of fun too, as a number of tv and book detectives get mentioned as Maizie, a tv star herself, tries to channel the characters to find the answers and the best style for her. The mystery itself was good and took a number of twists before getting solved. The story is nicely balanced with home and love life but it is firmly and mainly focused on the mystery. Just a great mystery that I would recommend and have to my mum.
With her father and former friend going into business together Maizie is all about helping the charitable organization, Clothing for Kids and that means attending a masquerade party and a photo shoot. So when the former costume designer fails to turn up for her own event Maizie and her plus one, Rhonda, nip next door to find out what is keeping her. They stumble over her dead body and a ransacked house. Who could want her dead? Rhonda doesn't take finding the body very well and then when she gets a threatening note she refuses to leave the house. Maizie decides to handle it a different why by taking on her first solo case. With her boyfriend and former boss Nash busy working for her father, Maizie will need to channel her favourite detective if she hopes to ask the right questions. But being famous isn't all its cracked up to be, especially when there is paparazzi lurking around every corner. Could one of the photos provide a clue? and just how much is she willing to pay for it? What about one of the other party guests? With so many people and even children running around surely someone was something. Maizie thinks so and so does the killer. Another body is found, one that had a connection to the party and the fund raiser. Is someone killing off witnesses? The more Maizie investigates the more she questions just how well did she know her friend? Can she restore her friends reputation, solve the murders and stop someone from targeting her friends and family? Only if she can get some help from some unlikely sources.
I like the narrator, she puts in an excellent performance and very easily brings the characters to life.
