    My favorite Shannon Hammer book!

    Shot Through the Hearth by Kate Carlisle is the seventh A Fixer-Upper Mystery. It can be read by those familiar with the series as well as newcomers. I found Shot Through the Hearth to be a delightful cozy mystery. Shannon Hammer is excited by the challenge of Rafe’s project. He not only wants his Victorian farmhouse renovated, Rafe wishes a unique tower (the Ecosphere) to be constructed and for them to hold a barn raising. It will be Shannon and her crews first barn. Rafe also wants them to use green materials as well as unique eco-friendly gadgets. The one downside is they only have eight months to complete Rafe’s list since he plans on holding the first Future Global Survival Con. The conference begins and we are introduced to a quirky cast of characters. There is Marcus Reedy with his special vine, Stephanie to Midge Andresen with her sandcastle worms. Sketch Horn, an author, is also in attendance and Mac is not thrilled (wait until you meet him). When Rafe’s old business partner, Dillon Charles is murdered, there are a host of suspects who could have killed the unpleasant man. There are good clues and some unexpected revelations. As the conference continues, there are a series of unfortunate events including another death. Shannon with help from her boyfriend, Mac work to uncover the culprit. I love the banter between Mac and Shannon. They are a couple who are truly meant for each other. I appreciate that Shannon and Mac share information with Eric Jensen, the chief of police. The female readers will relish the character Niall Rose with his Scottish brogue and the descriptions of him wearing his kilt. I laughed often while reading Shot Through the Hearth. It is a humorous story that I was sorry to see end. I especially enjoyed Shannon’s reaction to the smart mice (it was hilarious). Shot Through the Hearth is told in the first person which I normally dislike, but it works for this series. We get to see things from Shannon’s perspective which can be highly entertaining at times (like with the smart mice). There is one scene at the end that had me in stitches. I cannot wait to read the next installment in A Fixer-Upper Mystery series. Shot Through the Hearth is a captivating cozy mystery with a barn building, flirtatious fauna, puzzling patents, malicious mushrooms, wacky worms and a dazzling detective duo.

    SHOT THROUGH THE HEARTH by Kate Carlisle

    SHOT THROUGH THE HEARTH by Kate Carlisle is the seventh book in the Fixer-Upper Mystery series. It’s the wonderful story of Shannon Hammer, contractor and owner of Hammer Construction in Lighthouse Cove. She’s hired by Raphael “Rafe” Nash (a retired tech billionaire who is engaged to one of her best friends, Marigold) to enlarge and remodel an existing home, build an Ecosphere, and to hold a barn raising. During the lengthy remodel, Rafe spends his time working on creating the Marigold Foundation and making plans for the first global conference where knowledge can be shared in order to make this planet better for us all as well as inviting the top people in the eco-living field (both as attendees and speakers) to attend. Once the conference starts, we meet a wide array of professionals from an ethnobotanist, a specialist in smart mice studies, and an eco-fisheries expert. Rafe has even enlisted Shannon’s boyfriend, MacKintyre “Mac” Sullivan – author and former navy SEAL, to be one of the speakers. Dillon Charles, Rafe’s partner, attends managing to disrupt things making several people angry. Even Rafe, who after Dillion insulted his fiancée, told him to leave the property and not come back. When Dillion is found dead among the barn raising materials, things start to unravel at the conference. With such a wide array of patrons and so many of them despising the victim and having a good motive for murder, where will the authorities start? Police Chief Eric Jensen, boyfriend of Shannon’s sister Chloe, and Tommy Gallagher, assistant police chief and Shannon’s ex-high school boyfriend, have their hands full! Disaster continues to strike with another murder, gun shots, and poisonings. It seems as the crimes and victims pile up that the suspect list grows just as high. Shannon and Mac agree to help Rafe any way they can. They are determined to figure out who and why before the conference is in the recycle heap or someone close to them becomes a victim too. Is Shannon really a murder magnet? Can they figure out who the real murderer is before they strike again or get away? While Shannon live to see her wonderful romance with Mac progress further? Can Rafe straighten out the mess of the past? Will there be a second global conference? SHOT THROUGH THE HEARTH is a very well written cozy mystery that will have you suspecting just about everyone as you explore the possible suspects alongside Shannon Hammer. It will keep you turning pages while you hope that neither Shannon nor her friends, who we have come to think of as our friends too, come to any harm as danger lurks and bullets fly. You will even chuckle a few times proving there is laughter even in the “small things” in life. Kate Carlisle has managed to keep this series fresh and exciting and once again proves what a great writer she is. Although part of a series, this book can definitely be read as a standalone book. Without hesitation, I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a cozy mysteries, a great whodunit story, a clean read that will keep you turning the pages or just an out and out great book regardless of what genre you like. This book will fit the bill and have you recommending it as well.
