Home for the Haunting: Haunted Home Renovation Series, Book 4

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Where does Home for the Haunting rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks at the top. Juliet Blackwell is one of my very favorite authors. Her Haunting books will be my 2014 pick of the year for Best Series. Love them all


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that it moves along at a fast pace and there is always something unexpected happening.


    Have you listened to any of Xe Sands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Excellent. Xe Sands is a Rock Star in the Narrator world. Love every book she reads.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions, but it was a little creepy but always ending well.


    Any additional comments?

    Fun and fast paced. Lots of interesting characters and tons of funny quips. I love that Mel can see and hear ghosts.

    This is another good addition to a very good series. If you would like to spend your day with a cozy mystery this is a good one.

    I love action and suspense embedded in a good fantasy or mystery. Sprinkles of romance okay, but no erotica please.

    Any additional comments?

    I am growing accustomed to quirky Mel Turner, building contractor of fringe and spangled dresses, and the quirky people in her life. The book moves along nicely. The Audible narrator could differentiate a bit more on some of the voices, but she still does good work. I'll continue to read the series.

    "A good series!"

    If you've read any of my other reviews, you already know I like a fun listen. And these Blackwell books are that. They are fun. Xe Sands is very playful with the characters, but I'm fussy about readers and hear more vocal fry in every single character than I'd really like to hear from just one or two. It can sometimes be difficult to tell who is speaking.

    The heroine seems to be pretty down to earth, if you don't count the wacky way she dresses. I could have lived without that character quirk - it seems a little forced, but it doesn't get in the way of the stories so I choose to wink at it.

    The books themselves have romance and fun twists and it isn't easy to figure out who the bad guys are - always a plus. Blackwell isn't King or Koontz, but sometimes it's a relief not to have your socks scared off. And, really, who doesn't like a humorous ghost story?
