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.

What readers are saying:
—even as it’s reborn in a spectacular collision with her nightmarish stage mother, her deer-pee-scented-apparel-inventing daddy…and a murderer. 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
“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
“I was already a huge fan of Larissa Reinhart’s Cherry Tucker series, but in her new mystery series, FIFTEEN MINUTES, she had me at the end of the first line: ‘Donuts.’
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
“Larissa Reinhart’s newest heroine, Maizie Albright, is at once naïve and worldly. As a former child star, she craves life in the real world by becoming a PI, just like the TV character that made her famous. Armed with humor, charm, and stubborn determination, Maizie is a breath of fresh air. I adored every second of 15 Minutes. Viva la Maizie!”
— Terri L. Austin, author of the Rose Strickland mysteries and the Null for Hire series.
I had three more days to get that W-4 sent to Judge Ellis.
Three days to publicly extricate Nash’s name from the case and keep his office from folding. Three days to figure out what had happened to Sarah Waverly.
Essentially three days to save two lives and remake my own.
Fresh from Hollywood get ready to bubble along with Maizie Albright Star Detective. She’s #adorbs. And she needs to remake her life in a small, southern Shangri-la known as Black Pine, Goergia.
From Chapter One #donutdilemma #B-lister to… Chapter 32 #PaulNewmanEyes …you will meet a full cast of unforgettable characters in this sunny, light-hearted and endearing new series.
Maizie Albright reached the pinnacle of her career as Julie Pinkerton Teen Detective and Kung Fu Kate. What is a former child star, now a B-list reality show lead clamped with a judge’s order, doing in Georgia? Maizie is trying to escape the clutches of Vicki, her director, producer and mother, in that order, by starting a new series- as the star of her own life.
Maizie decides to join a small private detective firm in Georgia and soon becomes involved in a hilarious murder mystery. #Fun ensues as we read of her #escapades and meet the zany, yet well-drawn characters. Maizie befriends two young women who become her side-kicks, and she gets reacquainted with her Georgia family, including her rich Dad (founder of DeerNose hunting products) and six year-old sister who is also #adorbs. The Black Pine Country club also provides many colorful characters and a yacht named the PlayBuoy. The romantic lead is ably handled by Detective Nash.
Vicki taught me that you make your own luck.
Lucky for us, not only is this a #superread, but there are more #Maizie books to come!
