The Owl’s Nest Couturier Shoppe is a huge success! Business is booming and Alexa Owl’s love life is heating up. Yet much to the seamstress’s dismay, Detective Bobby Starr is suddenly back again!

He’s required to solve murders he had left unsettled from when he walked the earth in order to be accepted into this prestigious group. Of course, they will need to return to the time period in which the murder took place, and again, Alexa is a reluctant time traveler. Oh, and there’s one more little problem—this time, Bobby’s brought along a friend, Maxi Krogen, and she’s no angel!

MAXED OUT IS A COZY MYSTERY THAT WILL ENTERTAIN YOU AND LEAVE YOU WANTING MORE. THERE ARE SOME INTERESTING AND FUN CHARACTERS WHO WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. I WAS DRAWN TO THE STORY BECAUSE OF THE COVER AND THE FACT THAT IT TAKES PLACE IN PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA WHICH HAS A LOT OF HISTORY AND BECAUSE I LIVE IN PENNSYLVANIA. I ALSO PICKED IT BECAUSE C.S. MCDONALD IS A FAVORITE AUTHOR OF MINE AND I REALLY ENJOY HER WRITING AND STORIES.
MAXED OUT IS COZY MYSTERY READ THAT WILL HAVE YOU TRYING TO SOLVE A MURDER. YOU WILL ENJOY THE CHARACTERS AND SUSPENSE AND EVEN THE TOUCH OF ROMANCE WITH CLIFF. MUST READ FOR EVERYONE. 5 STARS.
