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!

REVIEW by LAWonder10:
The Owl's Nest Mysteries are always fun and contain several "twists". 'Maxed Out' is not as suspenseful, nor as mysterious as the first in the series, yet it still contained the humor and the endearment of the reader toward most of the characters. It was easy to determine "who did it" about halfway into the story. Still, there were other questions and mysteries which kept the reader wondering almost to the very end.
The individual characters were portrayed well and the scenes were depicted in a way they were easily visualized. The Title and Book cover image was cleverly chosen.
This series is a fun type of "time travel". Only Winnie really knows what is happening with Alexa...Oh, and Winnie can see the ghosts, also. It is left to her to keep the business in the present day, to keep moving forward until Alexa can return to her real life.
I am looking forward to seeing what happens in Alexa's present-day experiences as well as the next challenge Bobby Star has to accomplish before proving his worth in the hereafter.
I offer a Four Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me with no pressure for a positive review. This s my honest review.
