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.

Review by Library Journal (2011-11-01)

San Francisco-based Melanie Turner (If Walls Could Talk) is no ordinary contractor. Her renovations veer to spooky, haunted Victorian houses, and you might call her a ghost buster. But the specters in this current job are more malevolent, suggesting that some crimes remain unresolved. When a neighbor turns up murdered and former tenants of the house aren't being forthright, Mel knows there is unfinished business in this place. She would just like to live to see the murderer caught.

Verdict: 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. Sue Ann Jaffarian's "Ghost of Granny Apples" series is a good match. Blackwell also writes as Hailey Lind.
