    1. I will admit, yes I m a sucker for super cute cozy mysteries they envelop me in a world of Who did it Why What s going on and they have a slightly old fashioned charm to them that regular fiction lacks They usually revolve around small towns and nosy neighbors, random weird characters that make me giggle and of course the crime, figuring out who did it is quite delicious and fun and there s nothing better than turning into a Sherlock Holmes for the duration of the book.This might be the author s [...]


    2. Fatal Fixer Upper weaves wonderful design and renovation tips seamlessly into a fun yet gripping story I work in the design and architecture field, and the description of furniture patterns, design, textures, etc were fabulous And what a feeling for the historic architecture of New England like This Old House combined with Mystery Fatal Fixer Upper offers a great read for mystery and design lovers and sends sparks in the romantic arena as well, with snappy, sexy repartee between the heroine and [...]


    3. This is one of those books that should have a 2 and half star rating It wasn t just a 2, but it was less than a 3 It had it s good points, interesting narrative about old houses and restoration along with some creative secondary characters What it had going against it was the main character I was put off by the romantic meanderings of Avery s love life, whether it was about the ex or the new guy Also, she s really not the the brightest bulb in the pack She does a lot of really stupid things thro [...]


    4. Another new series, I seem to be running across them everywhere lately Avery is a NY textile designer who inherits her aunt s old Maine cottage which leads to a new career path home renovation There is a hunky handyman involved and a cast of characters who will turn in to series regulars one hopes Fast paced, well written and fun without to much of the soul searching you sometimes find with new authors I ll look out for Bentley s next offering for sure.


    5. There s a trend in mystery novels Whenever something becomes wildly popular, you can be sure that there will be a mystery novel that takes that popular thing runs with it Sometimes these series are good, but sometimes they are poorly done are written in such a hurry that corners are cut the series is ultimately sloppy Luckily for myself any other readers out there, this book was rather well done enjoyable Fatal Fixer Upper follows the character of Avery, a textile designer who receives a strange [...]


    6. First Line The letter from Aunt Inga arrived, as the saying goes, a day late and a dollar short.If Aunt Inga had put the correct amount of postage on the letter, Avery Baker might have arrived at the elderly lady s old house in Maine in time to find out what she needed help with As it is, when Avery arrived, her aunt was dead and Avery found herself the heir to her aunt s estate including one very neglected Victorian house What at first seemed like a huge inconvenience turns out to be a blessing [...]


    7. I just finished Jennie Bentley s first book in her Do It Yourself series I know a couple years late LOL But I just picked it up this summer Fatal Fixer Upper doesn t disappoint Avery is a plucky, likable protagonist and a believable Manhattanite sans the Sex in the City crap Before I finished page 1, I d signed on to read until the end And pick up the other books in the series Her boyfriend, Philippe, is someone I d swear I met in NY Setting the story in a small Maine town where Avery fixes up a [...]


    8. A pretty good read overall This is the first in a series of books about Avery Baker, a designer who inherits her great aunt s Victorian house in Maine and her two Maine Coon cats Avery goes to Maine with the intention of selling the house and returning to NYC but murder changes her plans Avery says that she graduated summa cum laude from Parsons The New School of Design Their standards must be slipping But we already know that she got her job by sleeping with the boss On page 74 Avery doesn t kn [...]


    9. Advertised as a romantic ghost hunting mystery, the book sounded promising I quit reading on page 8 when the author had her characters define someone incorrectly She s my aunt I thought she was my aunt She s both of our aunts, Mother said Her father and my grandfather were brothers Maybe at some point in the story this will get corrected but the sheer ignorance means I won t read further to find out To clarify, the children of brothers are cousins That means the aunt is first cousin to the fathe [...]


    10. In the first installment of the DIY series from Jenna Bennett aka Jennie Bentley, Fatal Fixer Upper, this new cozy had clever DIY tips for you to fix up your home or business We were introduced to Avery Baker, a New York interior designer who had inherited her aunt s old Maine cottage And that had lead her down the path to home renovation with handsome handyman, Derek Ellis When they met, sparks flew between them While she learned the process of DIY, they were on the case of a missing professor, [...]


    11. thought this might be a fast fun read as I like another author Sarah Graves who has a similar subject about fixing up an old house she owns in Maine read 11 of her books this one was a disappointment Young woman inherits a house in Maine that her 98 yr old aunt owned The person that murdered the aunt is obvious from the getgo I was hoping that because it was this obvious that a twist in the story would happen, nada very lame the worst part is i bought two other books in the series at the same ti [...]


    12. New cozy series.I liked this first effort very much and will start the second asap Characters are likable and mostly believable Plot somewhat predictable exactly what I want in a cozy This reminds me of the series by Sarah Graves set in the same part of the country, same style of houses Jacobia is a little real than Avery


    13. Very good start to what is a new series for me I love the characters, the mystery was not over the top and the main character is not an all out sleuth, she just happens upon the mystery Thinking that this is going to be a great series.


    14. Yes it was predictable, and corny and unrealistic, but in spite or because of that, this was a real page turner This author has got something going on, and I hope she writes many books


    15. another book my sister gave me, she gives me a big box of books for christmas each year this was a great read, couldn t put it down It goes into the keeper file, to be read again.


    16. Perfect, exactly the kind of cost mystery I needed to kick of the summer months Bentley is a fun writer, fun characters and great setting.


    17. Light and fun If you downplayed the sexy handyman there are times when it seems like a Nancy Drew story but lets not downplay the sexy handyman


    18. Wow I loved this book, the first in this new series The characters are interesting and likeable There is friendship, humor, romance, and an intriguing awesome cozy mystery Avery gets a letter in the mail from a great Aunt she only met once who wants her to visit She goes for a quick trip to find that her Aunt just died Avery goes back to NYC to find her boyfriend is cheating on her so she returns to her Aunt s house for the summer to fix it up to sell She meets Derek, a local handyman who agrees [...]


    19. I really enjoyed this book I liked the characters, setting, backgroud stories and mystery plot Maybe a little bit attention towards cats would be fun, but either way I finished it much faster than other books.


    20. I love this This was a really good start to a cozy series I ve been wanting to read Among many cozies series The mystery, writing and pacing was good, along with Avery, Derek and the other side characters Already want to read from this series.


    21. Pretty enjoyable, though the whodunnit part was not very suspenseful the larger mystery was better The main character was fine, if a bit dim sometimes Her reactions to many things were pretty realistic.




    22. 3.5 stars This took awhile for me to get i to but it was an enjoyable cozy mystery I ll be looking into the next book in the series soon.


    23. Love a good cozy mystery and this was lovely Easy to read, predictable but not tedious Nice mix of renovation plot and mystery clue searching.



    24. 2.5Although things improved over the course of the story, I don t want to read another book with this main character.



    25. Really good first book in this cozy mystery series I m looking forward to reading books to see what happens next to Avery Baker.
