Home For The Haunting by Juliet Blackwell is the fourth book in the “Haunted Home Renovation” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian, December 2013
No good deed goes unpunished.
San Francisco contractor Mel Turner is leading a volunteer home renovation project, and while she expects lots of questions from her inexperienced crew, she can’t help asking a few of her own—especially about the haunted house next door…the place local kids call the Murder House.
But when volunteers discover a body while cleaning out a shed, questions pile up faster than discarded lumber. Mel notices signs of ghostly activity next door and she wonders: Are the Murder House ghosts reaching out to her for help, or has the house claimed another victim?
Now, surprised to find herself as the SFPD’s unofficial “ghost consultant,” Mel must investigate murders both past and present before a spooky killer finishes another job.
This was a good read that pulled me in immediately. The mystery was very interesting with a some twists and turns that kept me turning the pages. It was fun watching the dynamics of Mel and her family and I was pleased to see her relationship with Graham advancing. Boasting a good plot, good dialogue and a lovable cast of characters, this fast-paced read was entertaining and I look forward to the next book in this enjoyable series.
