The house is described as a Victorian but it is in fact a Tudor-style house as can be recognised by the beam and plaster design.

In the latest in the Fixer Upper Murder series Jewel Pilcher is given over what
turns out to be a Deadly Deed. She's imitating Jimmy Carter and has a bank
turn over a piece of property they repossessed for a quick turnaround and repair.
It's a charitable contribution, but the head of the bank takes his banking practices
from Lionel Barrymore in It's A Wonderful Life. His name is also Potter.
Imagine if Barrymore had been found knifed to death in some property he owned
in Bedford Falls? No shortage of suspects there and none here for Jewel
Pilcher and her boyfriend mystery novelist Colin Ferguson. I will say you
hope the perpetrator gets a good lawyer when all is revealed.
A nice gallery of suspects, none of whom you hope is proven guilty. I think
fans will enjoy this.
