Fatal Fortune'................................... Molly's Reviews

I am happy to present this review of Elizabeth Delisi's fast paced thriller Fatal Fortune
Fatal Fortune
By Elizabeth Delisi
ISBN# 1-892745-09-7 Paperback
ISBN# 1-892745-10-0 Electronic
Petals of Life Pub

Harry Larson knows a secret. It is a secret which will have dire consequences for the former alcoholic. Harry’s wife Janet turns to Lottie Baldwin, the one person she is sure can help when Harry goes missing. The two women find themselves rushing headlong into danger when they decide the police are moving too slowly in finding out what has become of Harry. Flamboyant Lottie Baldwin blew into Cheyenne, North Dakota following the end of a romance she would just as soon forget. The Tarot reading psychic’s abilities are dismissed by everyone in town except for her old college chum Janet Larson. Even Lottie’s sweetie, sheriff’s sergeant Harlan Erikson is unwilling to accept that Lottie’s expertise is valid until he finds he has no choice but to rely on her ‘feelings’ when Harry and Janet’s young daughter is kidnapped.

Fatal Fortune a first mystery thriller by Kansas writer Elizabeth Delisi is a ‘keep you turning the page’ read. Her eccentric heroine Lottie with her ‘feelings,’ extravagant style of dress and Tarot Cards is a marvelous, amicable character; one I hope Elizabeth will soon bring to us once more in a sequel when Lottie again helps Harlan and his buddies in the sheriff’s office clean up another mystery.

The consternation felt by Janet is unmistakable and the foolhardiness driven behavior of Lottie as she tries to do something to help her friend is something we can all identify with. Well thought out, resourceful characters engaging in lively dialogue and believeable interwoven relationships are wonderfully characteristic of small town American and give this work a sense of being right there in the story. Delisi has an entertaining style with a hint of romance as she presents this fast paced thriller.

Fatal Fortune offers the reader a peek inside the mind of a troubled individual who will stop at nothing to enact the vengeance the character is sure is due. In a short time the reader comes to know how misguided delusion can become murderous intent.


Fatal Fortune by Elizabeth Delisi is a well wrought, suspense filled mystery thriller. We who enjoy thrillers are pleased to know Elizabeth has just completed another novel. Fatal Fortune is a narrative that will grab you from the opening page and will keep you reading right down to the last line. Highly perceptive work, and highly recommended.

Mystery author Elizabeth Delisi is also a professional editor for several electronic
publishers, as well as for individuals. She is a staff writer for the web
site NovelAdvice (http://www.noveladvice.com), a newspaper columnist,
and has taught creative writing courses at the community college level.

Elizabeth holds a B.A. in English with a Creative Writing major. She
lives in Kansas with her husband, three children, and their dog.
