When 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 hung for a Faberge egg.
While I enjoyed the plot and the locale of the book I found some of the characters to be annoying. I found myself wishing Elliot would just focus at times. I also thought the book tried to hard to be wacky and slapstick with all the predicaments Elliot got into. But overall I still enjoyed the book.

It features Elliott Lisbon, a mostly amateur sleuth who has a slight aversion to all things germy and is only five thousand hours away from getting her PI license. Along with writing and reading, Kendel spends her time editing, designing, and figuring out ways to avoid the gym but still eat cupcakes for dinner.
