    Melanie Turner has made quite a name for herself remodeling historic houses in the San Francisco Bay Area. But now her reputation may be on the line. At her newest project, a run-down Pacific Heights mansion, Mel is visited by the ghost of a colleague who recently met a bad end with power tools. Mel hopes that by nailing the killer, she can rid herself of the ghostly presence of the murdered man - and not end up a construction casualty herself....

    Ann says: "DIY murder, that spans the here and hereafter...."
    "Another great supernatural mystery from Blackwell"

    Would you consider the audio edition of If Walls Could Talk to be better than the print version?

    Listening to Xe Sands makes this story that much better


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Juliet Blackwell's stories. A great mystery, with plot twists and turns, but it is her ability with secondary characters and locations that give her stories so flavor


    What does Xe Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator, Xe Sands, has such an enchanting voice you could listen to her read stereo directions. She truly brings the story to life. She was a great addition to the story experience


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait until the rest of this series is released on audiobook

    Lily Ivory hopes for a normal life when she opens Aunt Cora's Closet. With her magical knack for vintage fashion - she can sense vibrations of the past from clothing and jewelry - her store becomes a big hit. But when a client is murdered and children start disappearing from the Bay Area, Lily may be the only one who can unravel the crime.

    Sherry says: "Witches and fashion - what's not to like!"
    "A great 'soft' murder mystery"

    Would you listen to Secondhand Spirits again? Why?

    I have listened to this audiobook repeatedly. The story is enjoyable and the reader's voice is soothing making it all the better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The lead character Lily is great. She is smart, gutsy but not unrealistic.The secondary and tertiary characters are just as enjoyable as the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    This murder mystery series is such a good read because it makes sense why this woman is trying to solve these mysteries. She is the only one available who can. Many of today's series involve protagonists whose involvements in such crimes makes no sense so it becomes difficult to get lost in the story. Such is not the case here.
