Book description from GoodReads:

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.

My review – 5/5 Stars (originally posted on GoodReads on 11/12/16) 

Normally, stories involving ghosts are not my type of paranormal mystery. But I am loving this series.

I love Mel (the female contractor) and am enjoying getting to know the people in her life.

The home renovations are fun to hear about and Juliet gives plenty of details to help picture the homes and the work being done on them.

Similar to Juliet’s other series (The Witchcraft Mystery series), Juliet weaves in plenty of info about San Francisco, its history and geography.
