survived the blind date from hell, Shannon Hammer will be
glad never to hear the name of Jerry Saxton again. She wants
nothing more than to get back to work at Hammer Construction.
This is her home renovation business located in Lighthouse
Cove, California. She has no idea how many people saw her
fighting with Jerry on the beach. He got a little "handsy"
and Shannon let him have it. She might have even threatened
day, Stan Boyer, one of her clients, asks her to check out
his house. A neighbor called him about water running. Stan
is out of town. Since Shannon is renovating the house, she
goes to check it out. She maneuvers around the broken steps
and heads for the basement. Shannon finds a very dead body
- a very dead Jerry Saxton!!!
think Shannon might be a prime suspect. The only way to prove
she is innocent is to find the killer. Shannon had better
be careful or she could end up remodeled.
to ponder: What was Jerry Saxton doing in the Boyer's house?
Did someone set up Shannon to take the fall? Why didn't Stan
Boyer check his water problem himself?
series is like getting a gift. I can't wait to pull off the
wrapping paper and find out what is inside. The author has
provided her readers with a cast of characters that make this
a delightful read. Cozy mystery readers will enjoy figuring
out whodunit. The story is a well-plotted and fast-paced read.
I can't wait to read about Shannon's adventure in future Fixer
Upper Mysteries. So, if you like your mystery to include hammers
and lots of nails - then you should be reading A High
End Finish. Look for This Old Homicide in February
