Publisher's Summary

In the fourth novel in the New York Times best-selling Fixer-Upper Mystery series, contractor Shannon Hammer must restore the Christmas spirit by clearing her father's name....

Even during the holidays, Shannon is more spackle than sparkle, which is why she leaps at the chance to transform a grand old Victorian mansion into 10 charming apartments for homeless families. Filled with the spirit of the season, all of Lighthouse Cove turns out to help - including her best friends, a troupe of far-from-angelic Santa Claus impersonators, and her father, Jack.

But their merriment is soon dashed by a heated scuffle between Jack and the miserly president of the bank who's backing the project. When the man is murdered, all eyes are on Jack, and visions of prison time dance in Shannon's head. Now she needs to pull off a crime-solving miracle before her father's Christmas goose is cooked....

Don't miss Framed for Murder, a Hallmark Movies & Mystery Original starring Jewel, based on the Fixer-Upper Mystery series!

Good holiday story.

I enjoyed this book, but there were a number of places where the narrator repeats herself. It’s as if changes were made, and the original narration was left in rather than edited out. That shouldn’t happen when people pay or use valuable credits for books.

Not one of Carlisle‘s best books who is a terrific storyteller. First murder is very similar to character type and means as in another book. The turn of events and resolution are pretty improbable. The deaths are pretty grim. You also don’t get a feel of the charm of the seaside community as much as in herb other books. I wouldn’t recommend. Read her other books instead

Crime doesn't pay. And some sweet surprises

This series is a feel good wholesome version of murder mystery genre. Some might find it too sweet for their taste. I don't mind that the heroine is focused on her career and her friendships and is taking romance slowly. I can see some formulaic aspects in the series, but I still enjoy the audible listening experience of this series.

This Audible book has some flaws

This story has left some loss ends without conclusions---but that could carry to the next story.
Just a warning-about the audible edit.
The biggest problem with this one book--- there are a hand full of time (mostly in the last quarter of the story) that repeat sentences already read. Very annoying.

I could do without the cheesy romance ...

I read the first 3 books in this series & loved them. Then there was a 2 year hiatus without audiobooks recorded & finally book 4 came out! While I liked the story and mystery itself, I found Shannon's romance story line to be incredibly juvenile and annoying. The whole mean girl rival sabotaging her relationship seems straight out of high school. The belief that Mac would be afraid to call or text her was so absurd that I had to remind myself time and time again that these were adults... It ruined a lot of the story

Christmas Cheer and Murder

The story was delightful and and filled with lots of good deeds. It took a long time for the murder to occur, but setting the scene and building the multiple characters did require some extra time. However the solving of the murder occurred too quickly. There were a couple of editing glitches; mispronunciation of Marisa was re-recorded without removal of the mistake. Overall, the book is an enjoyable listen and leaves enough questions about the characters to encourage listening to the next book in the series.

Repeated sections

Another great book in the series!
Only complaint is that in one section, a number of sentences are repeated - wish an editor had caught this before final publication.

unrealistic

This book in the series was a stinker. I was incredulous the whole way and only kept listening because I've enjoyed the previous books. It was so disjointed that a few times I thought the book had skipped because it made no sense.
Rediculous premis, story line non existent and FAR TOO MUCH going on.
Ending of book laughable. I was expecting one more chapter where the main character could "save the Dolphins, end World Poverty and stop all Wars and then think of a nifty way to fix Global Warming". (The main character would be able to do all this while...coordinating a 8mth renovation in only 2 weeks, solving her love life problems, solving a murder, working with social services to rehome an abandoned baby, planning/co-coordinating the MONTHLY town Parade shes in charge of; AND run her weekly handman courses for underprivileged kids AND having a skermish with her evil nemesis)
