THE FIRST NOVEL IN THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING FIXER-UPPER MYSTERY SERIES!
Don't miss the Hallmark Movies & Mystery Originals starring Jewel, based on the Fixer-Upper Mystery series!
In the seaside town of Lighthouse Cove in northern California, everyone knows the best man for the job is actually a woman—contractor Shannon Hammer. But while her home-renovation and repair business is booming, her love life needs work.
On a blind date with real estate agent Jerry Saxton, Shannon has to whip out a pair of pliers to keep Jerry from getting too hands on. She's happy to put her rotten date behind her, but when Jerry’s found dead in a run-down Victorian home that she’s been hired to restore, the town’s attractive new police chief suspects that her threats may have laid the foundation for murder.
Determined to clear her name, Shannon conducts her own investigation—with the help of her four best friends, her eccentric father, a nosy neighbor or two, and a handsome crime writer who’s just moved to town. But as they get closer to prying out the murderer’s identity, Shannon is viciously attacked. Now she’ll have to nail down the truth—or end up in permanent foreclosure...
The killer used pink tools
This was my first book by this author. I really liked it. It was a nice take on a murder mystery to have the main character be a woman who is a construction worker and used pink tools lol. Unfortunately for Shannon, she a suspect for murder after a guy she went out with is murdered with one of her tools. After she is no longer believed to have done it, one by one more victims start appearing. All killed with another of her tools. On top of that, there are some really close calls where she could’ve wound up dead herself. One being when the brakes on her bike stop working and she crashes. At least she is rescued by the new tenet of the local lighthouse. He is none other than a hunky famous author who becomes great friends with her. Now that Shannon has had close calls and more murders have happened, she starts snooping on her own. The new police chief, who is also sinfully dreamy, is not too happy about her snooping. But she can’t figure out who would want to harm her and frame her for murder. Just like the author, the police chief is sort of smitten with Shannon also. I loved everything about this book. It could’ve been a number of characters who committed the murders. It kept me guessing until the end. It had a great ending and what I liked about it most is that her options on which guy she winds up with are still open. At least it wasn’t an insta-love. And the books mainly focuses on the murders. And of course, talk of food and eating food. I can’t wait to dig into the next one.
If you like audiobooks, you would love this one. The narrator does a great job.
