THE MAIZIE ALBRIGHT STAR DETECTIVE SERIES
Three Teen Choice Awards, One Emmy Nomination, and several Maxim covers later, Maizie Albright was an ex-star, stuck in reality show hell, and standing before a California judge.
She has one chance for a new life: return home to Black Pine, Georgia, and get a job that has nothing to do with show business.
So why not become the person she played during the happiest days of her life? A private detective.
First problem: She’s got to do it in 10 days.
Second problem: She’s got to convince the only PI in town to hire her.
Third problem: She lost the client’s wife on the first day.
Fourth problem: She may be falling in love with her boss. And she might have just lost him his business.
