Publisher's Summary

Maizie’s Got One Mother of a Case. Her Own.

Maizie’s mixing with international stars, spies, and her mother’s dark past in her sixth case in The Wall Street Journal best-selling series. 

#WannabeDetectiving 

While ex-celebrity Maizie Albright’s dreams of becoming a for-real private investigator have not exactly been dashed, they have been slightly thwarted. Her ex-manager and still-mother, Vicki Albright, has taken the helm of Nash Security Services while rebuilding her entertainment management company. Sometimes with the same clients. Like Chinese action star, Lili Liang, who’s making the film Unlucky 18 in Georgia. 

Thus far, Lili’s living up to her movie title. Her kung fu coach is missing. Her boyfriend’s disappeared. And her director, who gambled on her with the part, might be gambling with her life.

Maizie’s luck is also running out. Maizie and Nash find themselves struggling to balance a new partnership and new relationship between missing persons’ cases, wild goose chases, and tracking a bullet into dangerous places. Sometimes it’s enough to make a girl NOT want to put a ring on it. When it comes to facing an 18-caliber killer, what will Maizie put up as the target? Her heart or her life? 

Grab the sixth book in The Wall Street Journal best-selling series and learn why Maizie Albright’s cases are “raucous and addictive reads” full of “twists, turns, romantic tension, humor, and fast quips!”

Adulting is Hard

The story picks up with Maizie and Nash working for Vicki since she now owns the security company. This new arrangement puts a strain on Maizie’s relationship with Nash and her father. Maizie is faced with difficult decisions about her career and her future. Maizie is growing up and quickly realizes adulting is hard. The supporting cast of characters add depth and humor to the suspense and romance.

Joan Dukore does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.

18 Caliber was a very enjoyable installment to this fun series. I’m looking forward to next one!

I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Maizie is Growing Up

Once again, Joan does a wonderful job narrating these books. Her voice gives a vivid image of our sweet, but fearless Maizie.

This go round begins with our loveable Maizie and swoon-worthy Nash doing mundane security jobs (and not mixing business with pleasure) for their new employer Vicki (the mother we all love to hate). The real mystery begins when Vicki calls in a panic demanding their presence at her castle to investigate a mysterious bullet hole in her front door while she is hosting a house party of high flying actors and their minions. After one of the guests vanishes, Maizie and Nash head to Florida where they find the missing person who soon becomes a found corpse. Nash stays behind in Florida and Maizie heads back to Vicki's to find some answers. The story ends in an exciting climax in more ways than one.

The side story is just as thrilling as the mystery. Maizie and her father have a falling out. Nash and Vicki have a falling out. Maizie and Nash have a falling out. Hidden secrets are revealed. New relationships abound. Remi is as adorable as ever adding comic relief in every scene she's in. The only thing missing was Giulio....the loveable airhead, and Jolene Sweeney...Nash's achilles heel.

The sign of a great author is one that is not afraid to develop and change the character's relationships and offer them personal growth. Ms. Reinhart does that well in this installment. I cannot wait to see what happens next for Maizie and Nash.

A fun romantic cozy mystery with humor and heart!

I love this series! The audiobooks are well done and the narrator fits the part perfectly. Maizie Albright is a former actress and her mother, Vicki, was her manager and is still interfering in her life. Maizie is on probation for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and she is trying to get her life back on track. She is in training to become a Private Investigator and she is learning the ropes. Wyatt Nash is her boss and there is a mutual attraction between them. Nash's security company ran into some financial problems and now Vicki owns the security company and is calling the shots. In 18 Caliber, book 6 in the series, Maizie and Nash are hired by Vicki who has movie people staying at her house. The star, Lili Lang's kung fu coach is missing and then her boyfriend disappears. There are a lot of unusual things going on and many of the people are keeping secrets including Vicki. Maizie and Nash work together along with a couple of Maizie's friends to get to the bottom of the this case. The characters are likable and interesting and the cozy mystery is intriguing plus there is humor and some romance. Very enjoyable. Thank you to Larissa Reinhart for the audiobook to review! This is my honest review and the opinions are my own.

Enjoyable

Maizie Albright is frustrated, her mother Vicki Albright has taken over Nash Security Services where she has been learning the ropes to become a private investigator. Between working and juggling their business and personal relationships, Maizie and Nash have their hands full.

Add in their latest client Lili Lian who appears to be surrounded by bad luck and things are about to become complicated. This book is full of twists, turns, suspense and witty banter.

I am enjoying this series and again the narrator Joan Dukore really brought this story to life for me.

More action behind the camera in this great book

I loved this book but then again all the books in this series has got a five star review from me, they are just that good.This is book six and even through the stories are stand alone books I know you won't be disappointed if you start with book one and work your way through the series. There is so much going on in the story that it holds your attention the whole way though. The cast of characters are so much fun. I like the way that they play off each other and despite the great plot, I think the characters are the main reason that I lock my doors so I won't get disturbed while listening and can find what happens next or which twist the plot is going to take next. The mystery was good and I had no idea who the killer was. I still want to see this series made into a tv series because it's got it all action, spies, mystery, betrayal, family, romance and fish.
Maizie and Nash find working for a new boss isn't what they are use to or want. The boss, Maizie mother, has the private detectives working as handymen more than detectives, as they fit security cameras at a film studio. But worse of all she expects them to be at her beck and call and come running without asking questions when she calls, even on a Sunday night. When the pair arrive at her home they find a Chinese film delegation has moved in and someone has shot at Vicki's fish. Vicki wants them to find out why there is a bullet in the fish tank, never mind that the kung fu coach is missing, the stars boyfriend has disappeared and the director is in hospital after being in a fight. It's not long before things turn deadly and a missing persons case turns into a murder investigation. Maizie fearing for her mother's life moves into the mansion, so she can keep.her safe (or kill her herself) and keep an eye on all the suspects but the problem is, she isn't the only one watching. Can Maizie and Nash work out what is really going on? because there turns out to be a lot more action behind the camera than in front of it.
I like the narrator she does a good job with bringing the characters to life and is probably one of the reasons why it isn't hard to picture the scenes play out. That and the great writing.
