Review: A High-End Finish by: Kate Carlisle

Title: A High-End Finish
Author: 







FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!

In the seaside town of Lighthouse Cove in northern California, everyone knows the best man for the job is actually a woman—contractor Shannon Hammer. But while Shannon can do wonders with a power drill and a little elbow grease, she’s about to discover that some problems aren’t so easily fixed....

Shannon’s home-renovation and repair business is booming, but her love life needs work. On a blind date with real estate agent Jerry Saxton, she has to whip out a pair of pliers to keep Jerry from getting too hands on. Shannon is happy to put her rotten date behind her, but when Jerry’s found dead in a run-down Victorian home that she’s been hired to restore, the town’s attractive new police chief suspects that her threats may have laid the foundation for murder.

Determined to clear her name, Shannon conducts her own investigation—with the help of her four best friends, her eccentric father, a nosy neighbor or two, and a handsome crime writer who’s just moved to town. But as they get closer to prying out the murderer’s identity, Shannon is viciously attacked. Now she’ll have to nail down the truth—or end up in permanent foreclosure.…


My Thoughts: 

This book follows Shannon Hammer whose having a bad day dating wise when she goes on a date with Jerry Saxton who turns out to be a world class jerk.  When Jerry ends up killed and Shannon finds the body the heat is on to clear her name.  As the bodies pile up the only thing in common are Shannon's pink tools.  Who is committing murders?  And why frame Shannon?

We also meet Mac Sullivan a author of mystery books in this story and the heat is on.  As Shannon investigates she learns more and more about the mysterious Mac and why he's chosen Lighthouse Cove to move to. 

Can't wait to see what is next in this series!
