Mystery Cozy

With ten books in the Fixer-Upper Mystery series, Kate Carlisle shows no signs of stopping! As one of my favorite cozy mystery series, I was very excited about diving into this book.

In DRESSED TO DRILL, Shannon Hammer is attending a movie premiere that is based on her boyfriend’s latest book. I have loved seeing how this relationship has bloomed and grown throughout the series. It’s one of my favorite things about this series in addition to the mysteries that each book has. I think a lot of readers come for the mystery plot, but I truly believe that they keep coming back for more because of their love for the characters.

Disaster puts a halt on Shannon’s demolition plan when the assistant art director is found dead in one of the chapels. Now, Shannon and Mac must catch a killer before more lives are taken.

Shannon has become one of my favorite amateur sleuths due to the fact that she is curious but never actively puts herself in unnecessary danger. She’s smart, which I can’t help but love. There are other heroines that put themselves in trouble, but Shannon and Mac are an amazing team, proving that they are the perfect match not only in love but partnership too.

If you haven’t read this series yet, then you’re definitely missing out. There’s a lot of fun to be had with Kate Carlisle and the Fixer-Upper Mysteries series. When it comes to Kate Carlisle, you won’t be disappointed!

And will see them again—as a museum—if Shannon, her talented crew, and her sister Chloe have anything to say about it.

But on the first day of demolition, work comes to a screeching halt when they stumble on the body of a beautiful young woman in one of the chapels. Who killed the assistant art director? Suspects crawl out of the woodwork as fast as Shannon can restore it. The church is hiding a century of secrets from the days that smugglers wreaked havoc on the California coast. But it’s a more recent secret that someone
