“Hollywood glitz meets backwoods grit in this fast-paced ride on D-list celeb Maizie Albright’s waning star.”
From The Wall Street Journal bestselling mystery author, Larissa Reinhart, the first in the Maizie Albright Star Detective series, and Hot Mystery Reviews’ “Top 10 Mysteries for Book Clubs.”
“Child star and hilarious hot mess Maizie Albright trades Hollywood for the backwoods of Georgia and pure delight ensues. Maizie’s my new favorite escape from reality.”— Gretchen Archer, USA Today bestselling author of the Davis Way Crime Caper series
Three Teen Choice Awards, One Emmy Nomination, and several Maxim covers later, Maizie Albright was an ex-teen star, stuck in reality show hell, and standing before a California judge.
She has one chance for a new life: return home to Black Pine, Georgia, and get a job that has nothing to do with show business.
So why not become the person she played during the happiest days of her life? A private detective.
First problem: She’s got to do it in 10 days.
Second problem: She’s got to convince the only PI in town to hire her.
Third problem: She lost the client’s wife on the first day.
Fourth problem: She may be falling in love with her boss. And she might have just lost him his business.
“Maizie Albright is the kind of fresh, fun, and feisty star detective’ I love spending time with, a kind of Nancy Drew meets Lucy Ricardo. Move over, Janet Evanovich. Reinhart is my new ‘star mystery writer!’” — Penny Warner, Author of Death of a Chocolate Cheater and The Code Busters Club
“Sassy, sexy, and fun, 15 Minutes is hours of enjoyment—and a wonderful start to a fun new series from the charmingly Southern-fried Reinhart.”— Phoebe Fox, author of The Breakup Doctor series
