Henery Press 4/30/2013. New paperback. Store pick, recommended by Nancy M.: Board Stiff is a terrific blend of mystery, humor and just enough sexual tension to make it interesting. Elliot Lisbon (Ellie) has an interesting job as the director of the prestigious Ballantyne Foundation. The story is set on an Island off the coast of SC? Hilton Head, perhaps? The mystery is believable and the culprit and motive was a surprise. The writing was sharp and witty. The characters were fun and quirky. What more could you ask for in a great cozy? I can't wait to read more about Elliot Lisbon and her quest for her private investigator's license. Fans of Susan Boyer will love it. -Nancy M., store volunteer

Publisher Description

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.
