I'm so happy to join
Berkley Mystery
in celebrating the release of  
Book 7 in the Fixer-Upper Mysteries
by Kate Carlisle

Contractor Shannon Hammer is measuring murder motives in the latest Fixer-Upper Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of A Wrench in the Works and Eaves of Destruction...

Shannon's good friend and retired tech billionaire, Raphael Nash, is loving his new retired life but he can't stay unoccupied for too long. He's started the Marigold Foundation that helps fund small companies and individuals who do humanitarian work around the world. It's an exciting time in Lighthouse Cove as Raphael hosts the first ever global conference inviting big thinkers from every area of industry to give presentations on eco-living.

Raphael's old business partner arrives in town with a grudge and a plan to steal him away from his important new passion project. Shannon knows her friend has no intention of giving up Marigold and is proud of Raphael for sticking to his guns. But when his former associate winds up dead, all signs point to Raphael.

It's up to Shannon to hammer out the details of the murder before her friend gets pinned for the crime...

I’d like to start by saying, this review isn’t up to my own standards of what I write. But I wanted to give readers something to go on.

Author Kate Carlisle once again delivers with a solid mystery with, SHOT THROUGH THE HEARTH. This seventh book in the Fixer-Upper mysteries very much lives up to the expectations of the readers that follow this series.

This book is wonderfully written. It moves at a good pace keeping the reader engaged. Along with the mystery aspect of this story are a couple of fun scenes that made my giggle. One word . . . Mice. J

I would like to warn cozy mystery purists (of which I am one), there is profanity in this book. Not smack-you-in-the-face or thriller/suspense level, but still what I don’t expect to find in a cozy. If it doesn’t bother you, and you are a fan of this series, and/or Kate Carlisle, you will want to read SHOT THROUGH THE HEATH.

    2. They are actually very entertaining, and I really like Jewel as Shannon ~

  3. Thank you for the note about the profanity. I don't really care for it either.

    1. Riley, thank you. I don't catch it all the time, but I like to give a heads up when I do. Nice to know someone feels the same way about it.
