The Discombobulated Decipherers

Book 2 in the Brilliant, Minnesota Cozy Mystery Series!



It’s Christmas in Brilliant, Minnesota, and Brilliant is known for its glitzy Christmas traditions. A world-renowned Christmas pageant, the town square decked out with Santa’s Village and a live nativity scene bring visitors to Brilliant each year. Just as the tourists arrive, Jezabelle Jingle and her mystery writer friend, Miranda, find the body of Ernest the elf dead and wrapped in a bundle of Christmas lights in the town square. Is Ernest part of a new holiday puzzle the Discombobulated Decipherers need to solve? Or is dead Ernest part of a bigger plot? Will Jezabelle decipher the clues so Brilliant can celebrate Christmas in peace? Or will Jezabelle be the next gift-wrapped box under the village tree?


Somewhere in the State of Minnesota, there is a town named Brilliant. The founding fathers were Brilliants and those brothers left behind a strange legacy. Imagine living in a town that has hidden underground passages, secret rooms frozen in time, and holes in floors. And, somewhere there is sure to be a hidden treasure. Also, a bit quirky, nosy, and up to the task, is Jezabelle Jingles who is sure she knows how to secretly solve some of those mysteries. Both of the Brilliant Minnesota mysteries series: The Penderghast Puzzle Protectors and Julie Seedorf’s second book in the series: The Discombobulated Decipherers, are fun reads. Fast paced with delightful characters. I would recommend reading The Penderghast Puzzle Protectors first so you can get a feel for the characters and the small town where the adventures take place.
