Maizie Albright grew up being a teenage star. Now after
several years of making stupid mistakes, she is back in her
hometown of Black Pine. Maizie is on probation, so she
needs to get a job, or she could end up back in California
and sent to prison.
So Maizie decides that she wants to work for a private
detective as that was her role on the TV show. Maizie heads
to Nash Security hoping to get a job. Their first meeting
does not go well at all because the last thing Nash needs
or wants is an assistant. Nash decides to give Maizie a
chance, but for now, no money will change hands.
The case Nash gives her to work on is following Sarah
Waverly because her husband David thinks she is having an
affair. So Maizie starts to follow her only to find that
Sarah is now missing. To complicate matters, Maisie's
mother has shown up. Alice is not only Maizie's mother but
her agent. Alice is trying to get her to sign a new
contract to continue her TV role.
This is the last thing that Maizie wants. Alice has brought
the whole crew down to Black Pine, telling them that all
they need is for her to sign the contract. Maizie is just
too busy chasing leads on the disappearance of Sarah to care
about the show. The more that Maizie and Nash follow leads,
the more strange things are happening. Now David has come
up dead. So what really is going on?
15 MINUTES is the first book I have read of Larissa
Reinhart. I can tell you this will not be the last.
Larissa writes a delightful book. Suspense, romance, and
some funny situations. Larissa also tells the story about
how a young woman sometimes needs to step away from some bad
company, in this story it was her mother.
Though there was some twist and turns in 15 MINUTES, it is
not confusing. It is more comical than confusing. Now I'm
waiting for the next book to come out because I can't wait
to find out what Maisie and Nash are up to this time.
When ex-teen star Maizie Albright returns to her Southern
hometown of Black Pine, Georgia, she hoped to rid herself
of Hollywood tabloid and reality show hell for a new
career as a private investigator. Instead, Hollyweird
follows her home. Maizieâ€™s costar crushing, but now for
her gumshoe boss. Her stage-monster mother still demands
screen time. Her latest rival wants her kicked off the
set, preferably back to a California prison.
By entangling herself in a missing person's case, she
must reprise her most famous role. The job will demand a
performance of a lifetime. But this time, the stakes are
real and may prove deadly.
