16 Millimeters, by Larissa Reinhart

16 MILLIMETERS large banner640

Place:  Black Pine, Georgia

People:  Maizie Albright, former child star, current private investigator (#sortof); Wyatt Nash, private investigator, Maizie’s unwilling teacher/mentor/boss

Plot:  It hasn’t been easy, but Maizie has managed to worm her way into working for Wyatt Nash. Now, if only she could manage to work her way into his heart! A P.I. in training, Maizie has been cooling her heels doing office work at Nash Security Solutions when she really wants to be on the case with Wyatt. So she’s thrilled when she drums up some lucrative work for the business while out to lunch with her mother/ex-manager. Not surprisingly, Wyatt is less than thrilled with the prospect of babysitting a “Hollyweird” starlet intent on seducing him. It seems like the job might be over before it actually began, however, when Maizie spots a body on the floor of starlet Cambria’s resort villa. Pretty soon, Maizie and Wyatt have more bodies than they can handle – and no one fitting the description of killer. Much to Wyatt’s chagrin, Maizie refuses to give up the case or the hunt for the murderer – even when it looks like she herself is on the hit list.

Pacing:  A little slow. Not enough to diminish my enjoyment of the story, though!

Predictability:  Low

Perspective:  I really enjoy this series. Part romcom, part murder mystery, they are the perfect weekend read. Maizie is everything you wouldn’t expect in a Hollywood star – she’s funny, self-deprecating, relate-able, and she has a generous heart; all in all, she’s a great character. She’s the perfect foil to the super-serious straitlaced Wyatt Nash – these two need to be an item, seriously! Maizie may go a little overboard from time to time, but you can’t help but root for her and wish her the best. (And hope she gets her man!)

#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.
