What’s on your “Wish I Had Time For” list?

If cuddling up with a cup of coffee or tea and a good book is on your list, this giveaway is for you.  New York Times Bestselling Author Andrew Gross has written a blockbuster with 15 Seconds.  Hmm, just saying blockbuster makes me think – this would make a great movie.

About the Book

15 Seconds is full of action and excitement.  Gross pulls the reader along with Dr. Henry Steadman on a mystifying journey.  He’s traveled to Florida for a conference when suddenly his life is turned upside down.  He is stopped by the police for running a red light and pulled from the car.  The questioning is bizarre and scary.  Suddenly he is released by the police, but before he can continue on his way, another car pulls up and someone kills the police officer!!  They speed away and Henry becomes the prime suspect.  He runs from the police, trying to sort out what is going on, but things get stranger and stranger.

About the Author

Andrew Gross has written the New York Times bestsellers, Eyes Wide Open; The Blue Zone; The Dark Tide; and Reckless.  He is also the coauthor of five number one bestsellers with James Patterson, including Judge & Jury and Lifeguard.  I found this on his website.


It was like a combination MFA and MBA rolled into one. He knows what kind of stories he wants to tell, has a keen sense of what will appeal to his readers, especially women, what’s vital in a scene for it to succeed, knows exactly when the scene needs more–or generally, less! And he’s an even better editor than he is a writer. Hopefully, I’ve learned a few things from him along the way.


Mr. Gross lives in Westchester County, New York with his wife, Lynn, who he credits as being the most important factor is his successful writing career. They have three adult children, Kristen, Matt and Nick.  When handing out accolades, he also mentions his supportive Mom.  Ah!  Gotta like a man who appreciates his wife and mother!

My Take on 15 Seconds

I loved this book!  One of my favorite reads of the summer.  I couldn’t put it down and recommend it highly to anyone who likes a fast-paced thriller.  I think everyone who reads it will start wondering, “Could this happen to me?”.  It’s scary – and fascinating that your life could change in the blink of an eye.
