As an ex-star of a hit teen detective show, Maizie Albright gets the youth demographic. Or so she thought. Now that she’s adulting, today’s kids make Maizie feel out of date. At least the youth she meets while doing community service at Black Pine’s exclusive healing resort, the Wellspring Center. When these teens aren’t vlogging their attempts to track down Big Foot, they’re trying to prove the Center is up to no good. Starting with the disappearance and possible murder of their not-as-young commander. A murder the police find as likely as Big Foot.

Maizie has her own suspicions about the new celebrity retreat. Particularly when she learns her ex-fiancé has been hired to run the Center. Kind of an issue when she thought Oliver was in prison. Kind of an issue when Nash, the man of her dreams, is out of commission.

Wait, not man of her dreams.
Boss of her fantasies. Professionally speaking, of course.

While Maizie’s helping adolescent Youtubers detect a disappearance, she’s wrangling her mother’s wedding, assuaging an overzealous probation officer, and struggling to keep Nash Security Solutions solvent. Conspiracy theories collide with real-life catastrophes beginning with murder and possibly ending with Maizie’s life.

My Thoughts:

What started out as a simple tailing of Roger Price has turned into so much more.  When Nash winds up in the hospital in a coma and Mazie is a hot mess of everything.  She tries hard to keep the business afloat and realizes how hard it is.  Mazie is approached by three teenagers looking for Chandler a man they work with on their YouTube channel.  They are determined that something happened to Chandler.  What could of happened and how much danger are the teens in?

Mazie also has a new therapist Dr. Trident whose into selfie therapy.  Apparently taking selfies will help heal your mind.  She is also working for Dr. Trident at the Wellness Center.  As Mazie spends time at the Wellness Center she learns there is more going on especially with ex's that should remain long gone.

I love Mazie and her hot mess of everything. She tries so hard to channel inner acting jobs to help her get through everything and when the chips are down Mazie is someone I definitely would want on my side.  Mazie can make you laugh and want to reach into the book and give her a boost of confidence when she needs it!  Can't wait to see what Mazie deals with next especially with the cliffhanger to the story!
