    "Very enjoyable"

    This might be one of the best books in the series so far. It's the perfect blend of a ghost story and a very clever mystery. It also has interesting and likable characters. I especially enjoyed Mel's blossoming relationship. This is a great series and I look forward to the next book.

    Story
    "More than one type of competition"

    Fun book that I would recommend.

    The new owners of historic Bernini House want to return it to its original state and make it into a haunted Bed and Breakfast. They have heard about Mel’s special gifts in communicating with the dead and are hoping that she can convince the ghost family to stay. Although Mel has met Annabelle, one of the children (ghost) that lives in the house, she has competition for the job. Avery Builders is also going to bid on the job.

    The catch is that both Mel and Josh Avery have to spend the night in the home to win the project. Whoever stays the longest wins the job. Graham, Mel’s boyfriend, doesn't like the idea of her spending the night with Josh and decides to join her. Both competitors end up with an entourage at the house because no one wants them to be alone with the ghosts.

    However, that problem all goes by the wayside when a body is discovered in the well. Mel tries to convince Annabelle to tell her what happened but isn't getting any answers. Instead the haunting becomes more menacing and Mel finds herself as a suspect in the murder.

    Story
    "Not my Favorite"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Spend more time developing the additional characters, like Mel's father, his best friend, and the step son. I just love Mel's father, and would love to see more of him other than cooking dinner or breakfast. Xe Sands voice given to Mel's father makes him come alive and makes me want more of him!


    What was most disappointing about Juliet Blackwell’s story?

    Mel is frustrating with always doing what she wants when she wants and never giving a thought to anyone else. The romance part of the book with Graham is worthless, either have a bit of romance or leave it out all together. A kiss per book is ridiculous.


    What aspect of Xe Sands’s performance would you have changed?

    I like Xe Sands

    ""A Bed and Breakfast to die for!""

    Our girl Mel uses her gift and turns a bed of nails into a Cozy (and safe) Bed and Breakfast. Another fun little adventure that makes you wish you could see ghosts.
