The most lovable OCD PI since Adrian Monk…
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.

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.
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.
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.
I loved the final party scene where one long-term pain in the butt discovered a silver lining in one small bundle.
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.
Certainly not a narration by Rachel Frawley. I couldn't listen to her overly pronounced reading past the first minute. I kept thinking I might get used to it, but I couldn't stand it long enough to find out.
Gotten a different narrator. Sorry, Kendel, I really don't know if this was a good book.
Oy vey. How did she not?
I have no idea. I couldn't listen to it.
I hardly ever have a problem with audiobook narrators. I'm really very tolerant, and I tried to give Rachel a chance. But this was, without a doubt, the most sophomoric reading I've ever heard. I hope she improves. Or gives it up.
