Contractor Shannon Hammer is back in Carlisle's fourth "Fixer-Upper" mystery (after Crowned and Moldering) set in the small town of Lighthouse Cove in Northern California. Shannon's latest project is overseeing the remodeling of an old Victorian mansion into apartments for families in need. Since the bank donated the foreclosed house to the Holiday Homebuilders, company representative Mr. Potter is sent to keep an eye on the progress. However, he manages to harass and fight with several of the workers, including Shannon's dad, then ends up murdered, leaving a long list of suspects. Hoping to keep her father off the list of potential killers and get the renovation back on track, Shannon does some amateur sleuthing.
VERDICT An entertaining Christmas cozy for Carlisle's fans.
