Maizie Albright Star Detective
Humorous, Chick Lit, Romantic Comedy Mysteries
"Sassy, Sexy and Fun."
#WannabeDetective. Ex-teen star Maizie Albright returns to her hometown, hoping to rid herself of Hollywood tabloid and reality show hell for a new career as a private investigator. But by entangling herself in a missing person's case, she must reprise her most famous role.
"Celebrity gossip fans, reality TV fans, and of course mystery fans are going to love Maizie Albright."
“This new series is a great mix of Hollywood with Southern charm."
"Ms. Reinhart has struck gold with these characters and she has written them into a fabulous and funny mystery story. Twists and turns, romantic tension, great dialogue full of humor and fast quips, along with some Southern flair had these pages absolutely flying."
“Another new favorite. I didn't know what to expect. What I got was a fun romantic, comedy, mystery. Making the whole mystery thing a simple enjoyable read."
Finley Goodhart Crime Capers
Con Artist Crime Thriller Capers
"Sassy, Sexy Southern Suspense"
Ex-grifter 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?
While dealing with Lex--an ex who's doing his best to bamboozle Fin's heart--Finley's running from her past: a crooked cop dad, sharks, frauds, and mobsters. She's fighting her own style of justice: one where the con is the mark and the scam rewards the innocent. But if Finley gets caught, there's no honor among thieves. She could pay with her life.
"Intriguing and gritty. I loved the setting of the book and the cast of characters.”
"Pages turn nonstop. Unpredictable twists and turn. Action. Suspense. Rekindling romance. Great sardonic humor.”
“Faced paced, bold, heartbreaking, this book has it all. It takes us deep into the world of hustlers, cons and dirty business. Yet it gives us glimpse of just how pure hearted some of the worst con artist can be. Highly recommended for lovers of mystery and thrillers.”
“Fabulous. I didn't want to put the book down.”
A Cherry Tucker Mystery
Southern, Small Town, Humorous Cozy Mystery
"Laugh-out-loud funny and as Southern as sweet tea and cheese grits."
In Halo, Georgia, Cherry Tucker's always searching for a portrait commission and agrees to a coffin portrait of a family's murdered son. But when she finds herself caught between ex-boyfriends, an illegal gambling ring, and outwitting a killer on a spree, Cherry may have painted herself into a corner she can't escape.
"Author Reinhart dishes out shovelfuls of ribald humor and mayhem. It takes a rare talent to successfully portray a beer-and-hormone-addled artist as a sympathetic and worthy heroine, but Reinhart pulls it off with tongue-in-cheek panache.” – Mystery Scene Magazine
“Anyone who likes humorous mysteries will also enjoy local author Larissa Reinhart, who captures small-town Georgia in the laugh-out-loud escapades of struggling artist Cherry Tucker.” – Fayette Woman Magazine
"Reinhart manages to braid a complicated plot into a tight and funny tale. The reader grows to love Cherry and her quirky worldview, her sometimes misguided judgment, and the eccentric characters that populate the country of Halo, Georgia. Cozy fans will love this latest Cherry Tucker mystery.” – Mary Marks, New York Journal of Books
“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
