We’ve mashed two of our popular mystery books into a single ebook, because if you like one Henery Press mystery, you’ll probably like them all…In this Volume 1, two Southern PIs take over the South Carolina Islands when board members (a beloved grandmother and a New Jersey cowboy) turn up dead. This ebook contains: LOWCOUNTRY BOIL (A Liz Talbot Mystery #1) by Susan M. Boyer BOARD STIFF (An Elliott Lisbon Mystery #1) by Kendel LynnABOUT LOWCOUNTRY BOIL:“Plenty of secrets, long-simmering feuds, and greedy ventures make for a captivating read…Boyer’s chick lit PI debut charmingly showcases South Carolina island culture.” — Library JournalPI Liz Talbot is a modern Southern belle: she blesses hearts and takes names. She carries her Sig 9 in her Kate Spade handbag, and her golden retriever, Rhett, rides shotgun in her hybrid Escape. When her grandmother is murdered, Liz high-tails it back to her SC island home to find the killer. When her police-chief brother shuts her out of the investigation, she opens her own. Then her long-dead best friend pops in and things really get complicated. As more folks start turning up dead in this small seaside town, Liz must use more than just her wits and charm to keep her family safe, chase down clues from the hereafter, and catch a psychopath before he catches her.* Winner of the 2012 Agatha Award for Best First Novel ABOUT BOARD STIFF“A solid and satisfying mystery, yes indeed, and the fabulous and funny Elliott Lisbon is a true gem! Engaging, clever and genuinely delightful.” – Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony and Macavity Winning Author of The Other WomanAs 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 serious 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. The closer she gets to the truth, the more treacherous her investigation becomes. With victims piling up faster than shells at a clambake, Elliott realizes she’s next on the killer’s list.Praise for LOWCOUNTRY BOIL: “Imaginative, empathetic, genuine, and fun, Lowcountry Boil is a lowcountry delight.” – Carolyn Hart, Author of What the Cat Saw“Twisted humor has long been a tradition in Southern literature (maybe it’s the heat and humidity), and Boyer delivers it with both barrels...Boyer’s voice is so perky that no matter what looney mayhem her characters commit, we happily dive in with them. An original and delightful read.” – Betty Webb, Mystery Scene MagazinePraise for BOARD STIFF: “A cross between an educated, upper class Stephanie Plum and a less neurotic Monk. Put this on your list for a great vacation read. FIVE STARS OUT OF FIVE.” – Lynn Farris, National Mystery Review Examiner at Examiner.com“Elliott is smart and sassy, takes no guff and pulls no punches. Packed with humor, romance, danger and adventure, this is a good mystery full of plot twists and turns, with red herrings a plenty and an ending that I found both surprising and satisfying.
