Press release for Framed For Murder


I am thrilled to announce the release of the Hallmark Channel’s exciting new mystery franchise based off of Berkley author Kate Carlisle’s Fixer Upper Mystery series! On January 15th the Hallmark Channel will air the first of the movie series, Framed for Murder, starring singer-songwriter, Jewel as the lead. Based off of the second book in Carlisle’s Fixer Upper Mystery series, THIS OLD HOMICIDE (Berkley Trade Mass Market Original; January 27, 2015; $7.99), the movie will follow the story of contractor and part-time sleuth Shannon Hughs (Jewel) as she stumbles across clues in her renovations that help her to get to the bottom of the suspicious death of a neighbor.

This past November Berkley also released the latest Fixer Upper Mystery, DECK THE HALLWAYS (Berkley Mass Market Original; November 1, 2016; $7.99), and has acquired the world English rights for two more books in the series.
