Dr. Daniel Winters has a beachfront home in Malibu, a career as a respected pediatrician, and a gorgeous new wife, Mia. For a man whose past was rife with mental illness, addiction, and thoughts of suicide, it seems too good to be true. Then Daniel learns that a fellow pediatrician and his family were found slaughtered in their home. It’s just the first chip in the facade of Daniel’s perfect life. Little by little, everything starts to fall away. At work, his career becomes at risk when he’s asked to remain silent about a dangerous new drug. At home, Mia has gone from an affectionate newlywed to a mysterious woman carefully hiding secrets.

Unsure how the author could even begin to write such a story that yearned for conspiracy, drama, intrigue and suspense but left me feeling bored and pre-occupied. Half way through, it was like a 'rush to fail' and there was nothing to captivate me.
The characters were unrealistic and to be honest I got fed up with the narrators at times whiny or husky pitch. It would've been better if she had read without trying to add drama!
Sadly, I really wanted to enjoy Malice as it was recommended in my Audible feed but there are far better ones and I would place this as a write off.

You have to pity Kaitlyn being in such a toxic relationship with Alex. Listener is calling out for her to leave but you cannot help willing her on at every turn & issue she is faced with & I loved the way she finds strength despite everything.
The narrator gives an excellent account of all the characters & am looking forward to more from the author.

There were some good motivational tips but many that became repetitive.

The majority of the book is based on common sense & your own will power. If you are a drinker, you will spot many of the messages & feelings following on from drinking to excess but if you are an occasional drinker who has it under control where it doesn't affect your life, then this book won't be for you.

What would have made Every Fifteen Minutes better?

The main character comes across as someone who is unrealistic based on his profession & therefore the book yawns from chapter to chapter. This could have easily been shortened & for the first time, I put the reading speed to x2 just to get to the end!

Has Every Fifteen Minutes turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes...

Would you be willing to try another one of George Newbern’s performances?

I found the narrator more akin to 'Kermit the Frog' & the accents were somewhat odd... even at speed x1.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. The summary to purchase the book fabricated many elements. Shame.
