My Musing ~ 15 Minutes by Larissa Reinhart

15 Minutes by Larissa Reinhart is the first book in the NEW “Maizie Albright Star Detective” humorous mystery series. Publisher: Past Perfect Press, January 2017

15-minutesWhen 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.

I love this book. Maize has been ordered to get a job and since her TV persona played a detective, that’s the job she finds and that’s when the fun begin. I love her determination as she takes on her new role with some missteps along the way. The author did a great job in staging this mystery keeping me involved in all that was happening on the pages. Maize is a wonderful character and I love her vulnerabilities which help take her to a different level all to the betterment of her personal growth. This is a great start to a new series that boasts a quirky cast of characters, engaging dialogue and the liveliness that befits this delightfully amusing and fast-paced drama.
