Today’s Friend Friday is spotlighting author Larissa Reinhart and her novel, 15 Minutes: A Maizie Albright Laugh-Out-Loud Romantic Comedy Mystery.
ABOUT THIS BOOK:
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: She’s got to get and keep the job in 10 days.
Second: She has to convince the only private investigator in town to hire her.
Third: She lost the client’s wife on the first day. And the woman may be dead.
Fourth: She just might be falling in love with her new boss. And she just might have lost him his business.
