Larissa's Series


Maizie Albright Star Detective

A former star of a hit teen detective show, Maizie Albright, returns to Georgia (by judge's orders) to pursue her dream of becoming a private detective and finds Hollywood has followed her to Georgia.

"Child star and hilarious hot mess Maizie Albright trades Hollywood for the backwoods of Georgia and pure delight ensues. Maizie’s my new favorite escape from reality.” — Gretchen Archer, USA Today bestselling author of the Davis Way Crime Caper series

A Finley Goodhart Crime Caper

Ex-con Finley Goodhart finds her criminal past--and criminal ex-boyfriend--useful in catching crooks. Can she make up for her past by helping victims double-cross their swindler?

More importantly, can she convince Lex that going straight is the best (and most challenging) hustle of all?

"This is as fun a novel as it is moving and at times heart-breaking, never the more so when the final page comes and readers are only left wanting more.” — Cynthia Chow, King’s River Life Magazine

A Cherry Tucker Mystery

Meet Cherry Tucker, big in mouth, small in stature, and able to sketch a portrait faster than kudzu climbs telephone poles! The Cherry Tucker Mystery series begins with Portrait of a Dead Guy, a 2012 Daphne du Maurier finalist, a 2012 The Emily finalist, a 2011 Dixie Kane Memorial winner, and a Woman's World Magazine book club pick for 2018!

"Reinhart is a truly talented author and this book was one of the best cozy mysteries we reviewed this year...We highly recommend this book to all lovers of mystery books." - Mystery Tribune
