As director of the Ballantyne Foundation on Sea Pine Island, SC, Elliott Lisbon scratches her detective itch by performing discreet inquiries for Foundation donors. Usually nothing more serious than retrieving a pilfered Pomeranian. 

Until Jane Hatting, Ballantyne board chair, is accused of murder. The Ballantyne's reputation tanks, Jane's headed to a jail cell, and Elliott's sexy ex is the new lieutenant in town.

Armed with moxie and her Mini Coop, Elliott uncovers a trail of blackmail schemes, gambling debts, illicit affairs, and investment scams. But the deeper she digs to clear Jane's name, the guiltier Jane looks. 

The closer she gets to the truth, the more treacherous her investigation becomes: a brutal attack on her own suspect and the murder of a witness. 

With victims piling up faster than shells at a clambake, Elliott realizes she's next on the killer's list. 

Start your next binge read with the PI-in-training dubbed "the Stephanie Plum of the South" from Agatha-Nominated author, Kendel Lynn. It's mischief and misfortune you do not want to miss.

About the Author:

Kendel Lynn is a Southern California native who now parks her flip-flops in Dallas, Texas. She read her first Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators at the age of seven and has loved mysteries ever since. Her debut novel, Board Stiff, is an Agatha Award nominee for Best First Novel. It features Elliott Lisbon, a mostly amateur sleuth who has a slight aversion to all things germy and is only five thousand hours away from getting her PI license. Along with writing, she spends her days editing, designing, and figuring out ways to avoid the gym but still eat cupcakes for dinner.

Review:

"A solid and satisfying mystery, yes indeed, and the fabulous and funny Elliott Lisbon is a true gem! Engaging, clever and genuinely delightful."   - Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony and Macavity Winning Author of The Other Woman

"Margaritas and blue lump crabcakes, sun-bleached shells and briny air. Kendel Lynn captures the flavor of the South, right down to the delightfully quirky characters in this clever new mystery series. Elli Lisbon is the Stephanie Plum of the South!" - Krista Davis, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Domestic Diva Mysteries

"Elliott is smart and sassy, takes no guff and pulls no punches. Packed with humor, romance, danger and adventure, this is a good mystery full of plot twists and turns, with red herrings a plenty and an ending that I found both surprising and satisfying." - Cozy Mystery Book Reviews

"A mystery full of humor and the mannerisms unique to the South, that combine into a fun-filled ride. Elli proves that her skills as a detective are on the level of the exasperating lieutenant and rival her talents at balancing the egos of the rich and not-so-famous." - Kings River Life Magazine

FIVE STARS OUT OF FIVE. - Lynn Farris, National Mystery Review Examiner at Examiner. com Elliotts not just a charity director or a social host or a disastrous dater or a fledgling private eye--shes all of these things. Elliott Lisbon is a Renaissance woman, dammit, and that makes her uniquely suited for the task at hand. Renaissance women know how to throw good parties, but as it turns out, theyre also perfectly capable of catching cold-blooded killers; it simply takes determination and a little chutzpah--two things the Ballantyne Foundations director has in spades. - Katrina Niidas Holm, CriminalElement. com Elliott is smart and sassy, takes no guff and pulls no punches. Packed with humor, romance, danger and adventure, this is a good mystery full of plot twists and turns, with red herrings a plenty and an ending that I found both surprising and satisfying. - Cozy Mystery Book Reviews A mystery full of humor and the mannerisms unique to the South, that combine into a fun-filled ride.
