“PREMEDIATED MORTAR is a solid installment in the series. But I’m hoping for more action and suspense in the next one from Kate Carlisle!”~ Under the Covers
Kate Carlisle is back with another installment of the Fixer-Upper Mystery series. Carlisle is one of my favorite Cozy Mystery authors, so I always look forward to a new release by her.
PREMEDITATED MORTAR finds Shannon Hammer is a whole lot of trouble when a friend Jane wants her to help her create a luxury hotel from an old insane asylum. As you can expect, it doesn’t go so smoothly for them. However, I did enjoy a lot of this book. While it’s not my favorite of the series, it certainly had a unique premise to it.
I found the beginning of the book to be especially slow, but once it gets started, I felt like the pacing got better. I’m still a fan of Carlisle’s writing style. It’s very clear and concise, but she keeps readers always on their toes.
I find this series an especially good one if you’re just getting into Cozy Mysteries or want to try one out. You don’t necessarily have to read the series in order to enjoy it, but you’ll get a better understanding of Shannon and her love life if you do.
In summary, I think PREMEDIATED MORTAR is a solid installment in the series. But I’m hoping for more action and suspense in the next one from Kate Carlisle!
