#10days #findthewoman #getthejob #doNOTfallinlove

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. Maizie’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.

My Review

Former teen star Maizie Albright is determined to make a new life for herself in her hometown of Black Pine, Georgia but it’s not easy. Thanks to obstacles being thrown in her path, mainly by her mother, Maizie has her work cut out for her. If she fails, she could wind up back in prison. No way is she going to let that happen.

15 Minutes is the first book in a brand new cozy mystery series and is jam-packed with “laugh out loud” material. It’s filled with zany characters in a crazy, madcap adventure. As I followed Maizie’s exploits, I couldn’t help but be entertained until the last page. I alternated between shaking my head at Maizie’s actions and laughing as I read them. Not to mention I wanted to slap a couple of villains along the way.

This series is off to a great start and I look forward to reading more of it.
