Publisher Description

Contractor Shannon Hammer steels her nerve to pin down a killer in the latest Fixer-Upper Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Premeditated Mortar. . . .

Shannon could not be happier that her hunky thriller-writing boyfriend, Mac, has moved in, and it is a good thing they are living together because they are both busier than ever. Mac is hosting writing retreats at his now vacant lighthouse mansion, while Shannon and her crew build Homefront, a quaint Victorian village of tiny homes for veterans in need. Mac’s latest guests are proving to be a handful though, and Shannon has heard some grumbling from the luminaries of Lighthouse Cove about her latest passion project. But nothing can throw a wrench in their plans except a malicious murder.

When one of Shannon’s new friends is found brutally bludgeoned with a mallet near the lighthouse on Mac’s property, the couple hammers out a suspect list and searches for a motive. As they drill deeper for clues, more violence strikes and a new victim winds up in a coma. The pressure is on, and Shannon and Mac will have to move fast to find an unhinged killer dead set on demolishing anyone who gets in their way. . . .

Absence of Mallets

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The relationship between Shannon & Mac is so loving & sweet. The mystery portion of the book keeps you engaged to the end.

A book with heart!

Another fine installment in Carlisle’s Fixer-upper series, which sees Shannon and Mac living together and working on a veterans’ tiny home development. But that project, and Mac’s latest writers’ retreat, are impacted by murder. Carlisle’s empathetic portrait of veterans is quite gripping.

Another great fixer-upper mystery

In this installment Shannon is working on creating a tiny house village for veterans when someone close to her and someone close to the project is murdered. Add to the mix a writers retreat and a lighthouse and you have another engaging mystery from Kate Carlisle.
