In the New York Times best-selling Fixer-Upper mysteries, contractor Shannon Hammer can repair even the most distressed building. But clearing out the cobwebs from her current project may distress her...to death.
When Mac Sullivan - famous thriller writer and Shannon's new beau - first moved to Lighthouse Cove, California, he bought the historic lighthouse mansion that the town is named after. Mac needs help cleaning up the place, and Shannon is more than happy to get her handywoman hands on the run-down Victorian. But during demolition, a grisly discovery is made among the debris - the bones of a teenage girl who went missing 15 years ago.
Locals had always assumed Lily Brogan ran away from her difficult life, but it seems her troubles followed her to the grave. If Shannon has any chance of getting her renovation back on track, she'll need to tackle the cold case. But with new suspects coming out of the woodwork every day, she'll have to be careful to pry the right secrets and clues from the poor girl's problematic past....

Not sure if it was the narrator emphasizing odd words or the authors phrasing but the book felt awkward and most of the writing seemed horribly cliche. The story was interesting but ended rather predictably.
I loved this story line, the characters are engaging and the surroundings are just enough to keep the story interesting and moving. I can't wait to read the other two in this series. As this was an audio version I must also comment on the narration by Angela Starling. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to her and would definitely recommend that you do also. Hope you enjoy this story as much as I have.
This booked started off great full of potential and then it became so predictable and just average.
