Book 2, An Elliott Lisbon Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Elliott  Lisbon  blends  her  directorship  of  the  Ballantyne  Foundation  with  her  PI-in-Training  status  by  planning  parties  and  performing discreet  inquiries  for  charitable patrons.  But  when  the  annual Wonderland  Tea  Party  makes  everyone  go  mad  as  a hatter, Elli gets pulled into a shooting, a swindle, and the hunt for a Faberge egg. 

From seedy pawn parlors to creepy antique shops, Sea Pine Island’s other half prove to be  as  wacky  as  the  wealthy.  As  Elli  falls  farther  down  the  rabbit  hole,  she  finds  a scheming  salesman,  a  possessive  paramour,  a  dead  donor—in  fact,  the  only  thing missing is a bottle labeled “Drink Me.” As events evolve from curious to crazy, Elli gets lost in the maze and finds herself trapped in a house of cards with a killer.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 24, 2014 – At the start of Agatha-finalist Lynn's sprightly second Elliott Lisbon Mystery (after 2013's Board Stiff), Elli, a PI-in-training who's also the director of the Ballantyne Foundation on South Carolina's Sea Pine Island, witnesses a crime. A man walks into the restaurant where Elli is having lunch and shoots local insurance agent Gilbert Goodsen, an occasional donor to the foundation, then flees. Elli rushes over to the wounded Gilbert, and tries to staunch the blood flowing from his arm. Elli soon gets caught up in an investigation that also involves a swindle and the theft of a Faberge egg. Meanwhile, Elli must oversee the foundation's annual fundraiser, a Wonderland Tea Party, in which she encounters more stumbling blocks than Alice herself as she wandered through Wonderland. The stormy relationship between Gilbert and his wife, who are trying to work out a divorce settlement, complicates the case. Cozy fans will find plenty to like.
