  • Fifth book in A Fixer-Upper Mystery series!

    Eaves of Destruction by Kate Carlisle is the fifth book in A Fixer-Upper Mystery series. Shannon Hammer is busy running Hammer Construction in Lighthouse Cove, California. Many homeowners are hiring Hammer Construction to fix up their residences before the Lighthouse Cove Victorian Home and Garden Tour. Everyone wants to win Best in Show which comes with a large cash prize and this year they have a famous mystery author as the judge. Petsy Jorgensen is Shannon’s most difficult client and matters are not helped by the interference of Joe Scully, the building inspector (nepotism got him the job). Joe seems to have it out for Shannon, and he keeps popping up at her various job sites causing problems. Shannon arrives at the Jorgensen residence one morning and hears screaming coming from Joan Derry’s yard (across the street). Shannon takes off running and finds Joe Scully dead in the Derry orangery with a chisel sticking out of his stomach. Who disliked Joe enough to kill him? Shannon, with her natural curiosity, starts digging into Joe’s movements before his death. Soon, though, another death rocks the town. Shannon with help from mystery writer (and boyfriend), Mackintyre Sullivan set out to track down the killer before they strike again. Eaves of Destruction is well-written, has engaging characters, and a good pace. I am a fan of Shannon Hammer. She is a strong, intelligent female character in a male dominated industry. Shannon has a warm heart, a sense of humor, and loving friends and family. I also like the secondary characters such as Jane Hennessey (Shannon’s best friend) and Mackintyre Sullivan (Shannon’s love interest). The new carpenter, Amanda Walsh was a great addition to the story. I find that each book in A Fixer-Upper Mystery series is better than the prior one. The mystery was complex in design with a couple of promising suspects. I appreciated the author’s use of misdirection and the reason why the murders occurred. I loved the descriptions of the beautiful Victorian homes (I love Queen Anne Victorian homes) in Lighthouse Cove. The dialogue is engaging and realistic. There is just the right amount of humor in the story along with romance (it blends in with the story beautifully). Eaves of Destruction can be read alone, but I do recommend the other books in the series (you can also watch the movies).

  • Eaves of Destruction - a MUST read!

    What is murder without some mystery and intrigue? I know that author Kate Carlisle fills the bill on all counts in her new book EAVES OF DESTRUCTION. This book has murder/mystery but also has a lot of twists and turns that will have second guessing who you think is the guilty culprit. The author skillfully takes your hand and walks you through each event and possible scenarios as you read each page making you anxious to turn the page. On top of the obvious, throw in characters that are great friends and co-workers, a little romantic interest, and a reminder that family isn’t always by blood or who raises you and you have a great book to read that you won’t want to put down. EVES OF DESTRUCTION could easier be read as a stand-alone book. However, it was great to see some familiar characters that I have learned to love along the way in this series. If this is your first book to read in this series, then EAVES OF DESTRUCTION will surely have you going back to read the rest of the Fixer-Upper Mysteries series. I highly recommend both EAVES O F DESTRUCTION and author Kate Carlisle. I can’t wait to read and anxiously await the release of her next book!
