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.

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

Lots of Repeats

I loved the story, but there are a lot of repeats. I would still recommend buying this book.

Why is there a new narrator?

I love this series and was very excited to start this book. Two minutes into it I realized something is not right. Five minutes into it I realized this is not the same narrator as the previous books. I have made it 34 minutes into the book and I honestly do not think I can go any further. Alex Barrett may be good for other stories, but not this one! Awful!

Love the female voices, males not so much

With the exception of two the male characters all sounded like stereotypical nerds with nasal congestion.

The recording has issues

The story and narration are good. The audio editing not so much. there a part in the middle that was redone to fix name pronunciation but they didn't take out the old section so lines repeat.

It’s ok but not great

Firstly, this recording held a lot of errors and sentences repeated in different voices as if the narrator was confused about who was speaking.

Secondly, the story was more disjointed than the rest of the series. This felt as if I was reading an abridged version.

Lastly, I didn’t buy that it would snow in a California coastal town.

Worst in the series

I'm At Chapter 10 and we are JUST NOW getting to the FIRST murder!!! This book has been so slow and it's sad that you could read the blurb and jump into chapter 11 without missing a thing. Everything that has happened so far has been filler info. The amount of filler included in these books is something about this series that annoyed me but I overlooked because I enjoyed the narration and how well the narrator was able to pull off the book. This was a definite pass but I'm finishing it because I paid for it. Hopefully, the next book won't be so bad.

I've finished the book and it was crazy predictable which is somewhat disappointing.

I'm revising my rating to one star because *SPOILER* if someone leaves a baby in your truck, you don't just keep the kid. You call the police. I feel like Shannon lost her brain in this book and the author just wrote whatever to get a book out. I hope the next book is better because I'm ready to give up on this series.

Also, Mack is not that great of a character so I don't see why Shannon keeps moping around because of him. If the man you've been dating didn't contact you in 6 weeks, he doesn't deserve you. His reasoning for why he didnt contact her was lame. I ship her with Eric. :P
