Synopsis

*** AGATHA AWARD Nominee for BEST FIRST NOVEL ***

PACKED WITH HUMOR, ROMANCE, DANGER, AND ADVENTURE...

“With an intelligent woman sleuth, a unique blend of quirky supporting characters and a well-devised mystery plot, Board Stiff is delightfully entertaining.” – Fresh Fiction

"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 the South!" - Krista Davis, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Domestic Diva Mysteries

Sub-Genre Tags: Humorous Mystery, Amateur Sleuths, Southern Mystery, Contemporary Cozy Mystery, Private Investigators

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 serious 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 closer she gets to the truth, the more treacherous her investigation. With victims piling up faster than shells at a clambake, Elliott realizes she's next on the killer's list.

Praise for BOARD STIFF:

"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 Award-Winning Author of�The Other Woman

"A sparkling new voice in traditional mystery." - New York Times Bestselling Author CJ Lyons

"A cross between an educated, upper class Stephanie Plum and a less neurotic Monk. Put this on your list for a great vacation read. FIVE STARS OUT OF FIVE." - Lynn Farris, National Mystery Review Examiner at Examiner.com

"Elliott's not just a charity director or a social host or a disastrous dater or a fledgling private eye--she's 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, they're also perfectly capable of catching cold-blooded killers; it simply takes determination and a little chutzpah--two things the Ballantyne Foundation's 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

"This is an engaging read that grabbed my attention from the start...With witty banter, a likable cast of characters and a visually appealing setting, this is a great start to what I hope is a long running series." - Dru's Cozy Report, The Cozy Chicks Blog
