Kendel Lynn's BOARD STIFF Chronicles Ballantyne Murder

Henery Press announces BOARD STIFF by Kendel Lynn, available April 30, 2013. This southern charmer has already won several literary competitions, including the Zola Award for Mystery/Suspense, and skillfully introduces a clever new sleuth to the humorous mystery genre.

As director of the Ballantyne Foundation on Sea Pine Island, 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. With victims piling up faster than shells at a clambake, Elliott realizes she's next on the killer's list.
