Don't miss the Hallmark Movies & Mystery Originals starring Jewel, based on the Fixer-Upper Mystery series!
Shannon Hammer's younger sister Chloe left Lighthouse Cove after high school to make it big in Hollywood. And she did it! For several years now, Chloe has been the co-host of a popular home repair show on the Do-It-Yourself Network. Now, after ten years, Chloe returns to Lighthouse Cove with her crew and co-host to film several shows featuring her sister Shannon, along with some special mini-segments on Victorian style and design.
But Shannon realizes quickly that things are not exactly blissful in TV land. Her sister's handsome co-host is being stalked by someone who turns out to be his estranged wife, Erica--who also happens to be the executive producer of the show. Erica's got a knack for stirring up sticky situations and when she's found dead, Chloe and the entire crew are under suspicion.
Shannon soon discovers the real reason why Chloe was so eager to move away from Lighthouse Cove all those years ago. Can Shannon figure out if that ten-year-old secret is connected to Erica's death? And can she track down the real killer before her beloved sister becomes the next victim
A Wrench in the Works by Kate Carlisle
I found A Wrench in the Works to be a fun and flirty murder mystery all based around a home improvement tv show. Marvelously executed, fantastic premise and completely engaging, Carlisle six book in the Fixer-Upper Mystery made me want to back read this series from the beginning. That being said, A Wrench in the Works also read well as a stand-a-lone.
The cast of characters were delightful but Shannon steals the show.
I received this ARC copy of A Wrench in the Works from Berkley Publishing Group. This is my honest and voluntary review. A Wrench in the Works is set for publication Nov. 6, 2018.
