Publisher's Summary

A new ghoulish mystery from the New York Times best-selling author of A Ghostly Light, featuring Mel Turner, a ghost-whispering contractor.

Mel Turner can't resist the chance to bring the Crockett Theater, a decrepit San Francisco art nouveau movie palace, back to life. But there's a catch for Turner Construction: Several artists are currently squatting in the building, and they aren't the only ones haunting the once-grand halls of the historic theater....

When one of the squatters is found dead, the police department has a long list of suspects to investigate. Meanwhile, Mel and her fiance, Landon, are remodeling an old house for themselves, and Mel finds it more challenging than she expected to be on the other side of a home renovation project.

When Mel discovers that the original owner of the Crockett Theater died under mysterious circumstances, and that there just might be a connection to the ghost haunting her own attic, the case takes a new turn - one that could bring down the curtain for the last time.

The Last Curtain Call

I've loved all of the books in this series! This one was exceptionally good! The descriptions of the old theater were fantastic! The mystery surrounding the theater kept the reader on their toes! I would recommend this book!

one of my favorites

I love Juliet Blackwells's books. All of her books are a must read,, or must listen to.. I love listening to them. Xe Sands is great reading the books. I have listened to everybody in the Art Lovers series, the Witchcaft series and Haunted Home Renovations. now I have to find a something new until Juliet Blackwell releases another book in of the series.

I always love to hear the adventures of Mel Turner. I am so glad she referenced Lily Ivory & Anna Kincaid characters from her other series. Here I am hoping & wishing on more adventures from them all. Thank you Juliet on giving us wonderful places to go to in our mind's eye. Love it!

Great Continuation of a Great Series!l

Wonderful San Francisco architecture and history details add complexity and richness to this ghost story mystery. And all the characters are back and continuing to develop. It was nice to see Lily Ivory in a cameo appearance, but I really wish we could have more books in both series, pretty please!

Love this series

The Last Curtain Call is highly entertaining. Mel, Landon and the rest of the characters are engaging and full of life. The mystery is well plotted and kept me guessing until the end. My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next book.

Fascinating!

family, friendship, ghosts, restoration, law-enforcement, amateur-sleuth, murder-investigation

This is a series that I really enjoy and can relate to (not professionally but as an old house geek), and I love that each book is fully capable of standing alone. This one ties Mel's own old house with a gorgeous old theatre and a full complement of ghostly presences. And the obligatory murder victim and investigation. Let the sleuthing begin and enjoy the ride. I did!
Xe Sands has perfected her artistic delivery and should receive more awards!

Couldn't put it down

Very enjoyable from story to characters to narrator/voice dramatization. There was plenty of complexity and movement in the plot but it was well executed and never confusing to me. Needed to do some other things but boy I had to finish this book first!

Delightful

Another delightful story from Juliet Blackwell. I love the details about the old theater and the history of filmmaking in the Bay Area.
