Whack Job by Kendel Lynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Whack Job is the second book in the Elliot Lisbon mystery series. It is a well written and edited novel.
El is tasked with another "discreet Inquiry" through her job as director of the Ballantine foundation. She is supposed to help one of their donors find a Faberge egg that his estranged wife has stolen during a contentious divorce. When that wife shows up dead El finds herself investigating a murder.
This was a fast paced and interesting novel, but there was too much happening at once. At times it felt chaotic.
The love triangle between El, Nick and Matty had sort of pooped out in this novel. Neither man seemed particularly interested in her and there were definitely no sparks flying.
Overall this was a fun read with a HEA. It can be read as a stand alone, but I would suggest reading Board Stiff first.
