Short Synopsis
In the latest novel in the Haunted Home Renovation series, Mel must restore a historic Queen Anne Victorian—and her reputation—before it's too late.

Full Synopsis
Turner Construction's latest restoration project is a historic Queen Anne Victorian in San Francisco. This time, general contractor Mel Turner has to work around the owners, who insist on sticking around—along with some ghosts that insist in their own way that the work stops.

The ghosts aren't the only ones standing in the way of the renovations. A crotchety neighbor, Emile Blunt, secretly wants this house and could be behind some of the disturbances. But when Emile is found dead, it's Mel who appears guilty. Now she must restore the building—and her reputation—before it's too late.

"Cleverly plotted with a terrific sense of the history of the greater Bay Area, Blackwell's series has plenty of ghosts and supernatural happenings to keep readers entertained and off balance." ---Library Journal

"Cozy fans will want to see a lot more of the endearing Mel." ---Publishers Weekly

"Juliet Blackwell's writing is like that of a master painter, placing a perfect splash of detail, drama, color, and whimsy in all the right places!" ---Victoria Laurie, author of the Psychic Eye series
