Publisher's Summary

Contractor Shannon Hammer is measuring murder motives in the latest Fixer-Upper Mystery from the New York Times best-selling author of A Wrench in the Works and Eaves of Destruction....

Shannon's good friend and retired tech billionaire Raphael Nash is loving his new retired life, but he can't stay unoccupied for too long. He's started the Marigold Foundation, which helps fund small companies and individuals who do humanitarian work around the world. It's an exciting time in Lighthouse Cove as Raphael hosts the first ever global conference, inviting big thinkers from every area of industry to give presentations on eco-living. 

Raphael's old business partner arrives in town with a grudge and a plan to steal him away from his important new passion project. Shannon knows her friend has no intention of giving up Marigold and is proud of Raphael for sticking to his guns. But when his former associate winds up dead, all signs point to Raphael. 

It's up to Shannon to hammer out the details of the murder before her friend gets pinned for the crime.

Fun story and characters hurt by poor narrator

I've enjoyed all of books in this series. Fun cozy mysteries and enjoyable to listen to normally. This new narrator made most of the male voices sound weirdly munchkin-esque. The narrator lacks the ability to nuance her voice and create an enjoyable cast of character voices. She made Emily and Jane sound like two gruff men. It made this particular book rather grating to listen to even though I had initially been excited to see a new book in this series. I hope the series will continue, but PLEASE choose a more accomplished narrator!

Something has changed

...and not just the narrator. After six books with the same narrator and associating the changes of her voice with each character this was not pleasant. I had also got to a point in book six that I felt the author was giving us readers to much minute detail of the different scenarios that the character was involved in. This seventh book was much worse. I literally was using the fast forward option for the first time for I felt that I felt I was being lectured on “being green”. No thank you. If I choose to learn (useless) information I will take a class not listen to a cozy mystery. I continued to the end as I wanted to see how Shannon & Mac’s relationship developed but I feel there was little or no growth there. Very disappointing and just one more thought, does everyone in Lighthouse Cove jog? Mac jogged here, Eric jogged there and Shannon jogged somewhere!

Very disappointing

I wanted to like it; but did not. The story was not intriguing, the characters blended together. The narration didn’t help because the voice characterizations were either nonexistent or just didn’t make sense.

Mehh

I've liked her stories before. I have listened to several in this series. This one starts out with just too much building detail. I was kind of bored by it. Then the narrator does not do male voices very well. Characters started sounding rather dim-witted. that was when I realized that this is a different reader from the previous books. So is possible that this book is as good as the others in the series...

Did not enjoy narration.

I have really enjoyed this series but the new narrator was just not right for this book. I struggled through it and was glad when it was finished. I will not listen to another book from this narrator.
