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 Fabergé egg.
From seedy pawn parlors to creepy antique shops, Sea Pine Island's other half prove to be as wacky as the wealthy. Elli falls farther down the rabbit hole and finds a scheming salesman, a possessive paramour, a dead donor - everything but 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.

Elliott's mini is now turbo charged..
Where does Whack Job rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
An light entertaining story with some mystery elements and a increasingly well developed cast, Whack Job is a delight to listen to. The pace is consistently quick and it is easy to be drawn completely into to storyline.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Elliott is the star and fate continues to conspire against her. From arid dust bunnies, to a bucket of day old chum, to a fetid urban man camp she manages to wear more unintentional "accessories" and destroy more clothing than any other OCD detective around.
Have you listened to any of Rachel Frawley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
The only onther performance by Rachel Frawley that I have listened to was Board Stiff, the initial mystery in this series. By now I have associated with her characterizations and find it very easy to listen too.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I loved the final party scene where one long-term pain in the butt discovered a silver lining in one small bundle.
Any additional comments?
If you enter in looking for a good story and some light entertainment with a sprinkling of mystery on top, you will not go away unhappy.

I listened to the first book in this series and thought I would give the second book a try. It was a complete waste of time. There is something about lead character that I don't like. She seems pompous and unrealistic. At any rate. if she were a real person. I would avoid her. I therefore, was unable to finish this book.
