“If you’re like me and you are a predominately a romance reader who is looking to try something new, Kate Carlisle the is one to check out.”
~ Under the Covers

I’m quite excited about this author because although Kate Carlisle is a cozy mystery writer, she does have a good dose of romance in her books so if you’re like me and you are a predominately a romance reader who is looking to try something new, Kate Carlisle the is one to check out.

A HIGH-END FINSIH is the first book in the Fixer-Upper Mysteries. It’s set in northern California and follows a contractor named Shannon Hammer. I really like the concept of this series because it’s a little different. Instead of something girly and sweet, Carlisle chooses an occupation that’s a little more “manly”. Of course women are able to do things just as good as men and Shannon is a perfect example of that with her handiwork.

In this particular book, a man she went on a blind date with is discovered dead in one of the homes she is meant to restore so really, it puts Shannon right in the middle of things. Shannon is such a fun character. She’s not so over the top that she’s strange but she does have her cute quirks that makes her very admirable and fun.

I like that her occupation is something that I don’t much know about because it does keep things interesting for me. I also think Carlisle does a good job of providing readers with the details but not packing the book full with them so it really is a good balance.

I am so glad to have found Kate Carlisle and her books. I’m definitely looking forward to trying out her Bibliophile Mysteries as well as that seems to be the more popular of her books so far.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
