Maxed Out by C.S. McDonald #bookreview
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! Bobby isn’t your everyday gumshoe. Rather, he’s an angel who’s trying to earn a place in Saint Peter’s Guardian Angel Squad. 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!
The second book in the Owl’s Nest Mysteries, Maxed Out, is just as fun as the first. Bobby Starr, a ghostly former detective, returns to ask Alexa for help with yet another crime. This intriguing story has a great cast of characters, is well-written, and has an awesome unexpected finish! I’m eager to read the next book! I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a well written cozy mystery.
