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....

I really like the voices of the narrator, but I think reading and listenings can't be compared. Listening you receive the story and the interpretation of the narrator, while reading the interpretation is up to the reader.
The different voices for different characters, especially the male characters. I usually find this a critical marker for a narrator and Xe Sands does a terrific job.
It made me chuckle a couple times.
There were a bit too many male characters to keep track of.
Say something about yourself!
Yes I would, it's fun and flows nicely and Xe Sands is a wonderful narrator.
Yes, have listened to all the Witchcraft Mysteries, and now listening to all the Haunted Home Renovation series. Juliet Blackwell has a great sense of humor.
Oh yes, she is wonderful
This is the start of a paranormal amateur sleuth series filled with ghosts, unknown villains, and a great heroine who works "in the trades". Loved the book and the author but there were too many characters and especially the investors because we did not know who they all were up front. I kept getting them mixed up and had to back peddle. However, that said and is why I gave it a four and not a five, I would recommend the book.
I love Juliet Blackwell's writing style. Her main characters always are polite and thoughtful with a dash of humility. Mel is no different she's a smart confident woman (although she doesn't know it) working in a man's world. After reading this book I immediately bought the next. If or when your looking for good clean fun stop right here.
The narrator tried to change voices for the characters and it just sounded stupid.
Have not listened to Blackwell before this book.
Heck yes, because the main character is a stand up person who is trying to find herself after divorce and moving in with daddy.
