Eco-living, smart mice, and murder round out Shot Through the Hearth, the latest installment of Kate Carlisle's Fixer-Upper series.
Shannon Hammer along with the cast of regulars help plan, build and participate in the first ever global conference in Lighthouse Cove. Of course murder disrupts the best laid plans. It is up to Shannon, her friends, and the police department to catch the killer.
I love this series for the cozy, small town feel and the familiar cast of characters that rounds out each of these novels.
Shot Through the Hearth keeps you guessing until the end. It is well worth your time.
Barn raising and environmental tech
In Shot Through the Hearth, Shannon Hammer and her friends and family help put on an environmental tech conference, raise a barn, and figure out why mysterious things keep happening at the conference. It’s fast paced and it was fun now that we are comfortable with Shannon, Mac, and the other characters to just see them doing their thing, solving crimes and having fun! There was less Victorian home renovation in this latest book in the series but I actually really enjoyed the change of pace!
I actually can’t believe it but this is Fixer-Upper Mystery #7️⃣! Seems like I started reading them yesterday 😂 While you should probably read them all for them to make the most sense, they do have enough introductory context to stand alone!
