Book Giveaway- Every Fifteen Minutes





Every Fifteen Minutes
ByLisa Scottoline

Thank you St. Martin, John Karle
for a galley copy

I have a book giveaway on my blog starting today Wednesday and ending next week on 5/1 of next week. . Just leave a comment, and you will be entered into the drawing. I will announce the drawing on Thursday. Thank you St. Martin Publishing for donating a copy for the giveaway.

Lisa has done it again, even better than her previous novel.  Her novels just get better and better.


Dr.Eric Parrish married to wife, Caitlin, and Daighter, Hannah. Is respected  Chief Psychiatrist in a local hospital. He's psychiatric unit was just listed as number two in the country. Life is looking up until recently.

He's wife is seeking a divorce,and wants to make life difficult for Eric to share custody for their daughter. He's personal and Professional life is going down the tubes. You think it can't get any worse,  WRONG!. There is a young, pretty medical student. That is accusing him of sexual harrassement. Next Mr. Perino's wife is  accusing Eric of misusing his authority to sedate Mr. Perino(which actually was another doctor). The board has decided to relieve him of his duties for now, and he will be on suspension till every thing is cleared up.  Now, it isn't just he's personal, professional life, but now he's reputation is on the line.

In the meantime, a fellow doctor has asked Eric to see a patient that is dying of cancer. The dying grandmother is concerned about her grandson, Max. She wants Eric to help  Max before she passes. Max can't handle he's grandmother's grave illness. He has anxiety, OCD, obsessive obtrusive thoughts that he can't get out of his head. These rituals must be done every 15 minutes.

 Max is missing. Eric searches for Max. He goes way and above the call of duty. He is a gluten for punishment. Why is he bothering?? He can't tell anyone what he knows as this is patient doctor confidentiality.

The other part of the story, from the opening chapter, Lisa's novel opens from the prospective of a socialpath. I was a psychiatric nurse, and she hit it right on the head of the details of a mentally disturbed person. It was so creepy, but true. You think you know someone, but do you really?? When you go to the store, to school, to work, at your church or synagouge do you know if that person is going to snap??

If you think you have it all figured out by the end of Every Fifteen Minutes. You are WRONG!! There are so many twists, and turns.  Well, guess what you don't. While reading Every Fifteen Minutes, I saw this as a movie the entire time.  I hope they buy up the rights for this one. I just loved this book, and you think about the characters after reading. Lisa, did her homework. This is a winner. If you want to read a book that takes up your entire day. I suggest you grab a copy today.  Every Fifteen Minutes was certainly a pleasure to read, not a chore to finish.
