Overview

Dead Bolt (Haunted Home Renovation Series #2) by Juliet Blackwell

Turner Construction's latest restoration project is a historic Queen Anne Victorian in San Francisco. This time general contractor Mel Turner has to work around the owners who insist on sticking around- along with some ghosts that insist in their own way that the work stops...

The ghosts aren't the only ones standing in the way of the renovations. A crotchety neighbor, Emile Blunt, secretly wants this house, and could be behind some of the disturbances. But when Emile is found dead, it's Mel who appears guilty. Now she must restore the building-and her reputation-before it's too late.

My second book by Juliet Blackwell, read first book " If wall could talk" very good book. Dead Bolt book was very good I couldn't put the book down and turn the pages fast enough. Dead Bolt made laugh, gave chills up my back and scared a little. I highly recommend these 2 books, very well written and interesting by chapter 1 in both books. Good job Juliet

Home renovation in San Francisco and ghosts. Mel has her hands full with her most recent renovation. I really like this series, Mel and the other characters are well developed and engaging. I like the concept, since I know next to nothing about home renovation, especially Mel's specialty, Victorian and other classic homes.

In Blackwell's paranormal mystery novel, general contractor Melanie Turner's latest restoration job involves a historic Queen Anne Victorian in one of San Francisco's neighborhoods. The owners have decided to reside in the basement while the work is done, making things more difficult for the crew. But when strange things begin to happen around the site, the owners threaten to cancel all restoration plans for fear of disturbing the ghosts who live somewhere on the property. It's soon clear that the ghosts aren't the only ones disrupting the work in progress. The neighbors aren't happy with the noise associated with the project either. When Mel's father discovers a body across the street, Mel is tasked with the duty to finish the job on time, do some ghost busting, and restore her reputation. Melanie Turner is one of the most exciting, sharp, and hysterically funny heroines in any book series I've read. A new and inventive twist on the ghostly paranormal mystery genre.
