Hammer is a successful building contractor living and working
in Lighthouse Cove. Her younger sister, Chloe, is returning
home for a visit after ten years away in California, where
she has a popular home repair show on the Home Builders Network.
She’s come home to film some episodes featuring not
only her hometown, but her sister, Shannon, as she works her
magic restoring Victorian style houses.
you might expect the Hollywood crew live a totally different
lifestyle than those in coastal Lighthouse Cove. There is
a lot of stress and competition, and the show’s executive
producer, a woman named Bree, takes pleasure in upsetting
people in and beyond her orbit. When Bree is killed, law enforcement
casts a wide net in the search for a killer. Chloe and the
whole crew are suspects.
Shannon going to be the one to catch a killer before the killer
catches her? Will Chloe stay in town once this is all over?
Or at least come home more often than once every ten years?
is yet another intriguing mystery chock full of personable
characters, subplots and enough suspects and clues to keep
the reader's eyes glued to the pages while mentally putting
the pieces together.
usual, you can’t go wrong when you pick up a book by
Kate Carlisle. She has sharp writing skills and uses them
to perfection. So pull up a chair, get yourself comfy and
settle down to a visit to Lighthouse Cove.
a related note, the Hallmark channel has several mystery movies
based on these books and Jewel is the star. I confess that
I’ve not seen any of them yet, but they look worth checking
out. I’m sure I’ll be one of those people who
says “The book was better.” because I am blindly
loyal to the written word.
