Crowned and Moldering

Crowned and Moldering

3rd Fixer-Upper Mystery

Contractor Shannon Hammer works on plenty of hot properties but is about to tackle her first cold case...

When Mac Sullivan—famous thriller writer and Shannon's new beau—first moved to Lighthouse Cove, California, he bought the historic lighthouse mansion that is the town's namesake. Of course, Mac needs help returning the run-down place to its former glory, and Shannon is more than happy to get her handywoman hands busy. But the renovation grinds to a halt after the remains of a missing young woman are found.

Fifteen years ago, locals assumed Lily Brogan had simply run away. Now Shannon knows she must pry the right secrets and clues from Lily's problematic past, and bring the guilty to justice, before an old murder sparks a new killing...
