Author Juliet Blackwell never ceases to amaze me with her imaginative mysteries, full of complex-characters, and well- played situations. With wit and wonderment cloaking whodunit and why, "Home for the Haunting" is a must-read for anyone who enjoys a good spook fest.

Protagonist Mel Turner is a contractor who lives in eccentric San Francisco. Currently she's in charge of a volunteer home renovation project. There is an allegedly haunted house right next door, and all too soon, a murder victim is found. Mel's on the case and becomes the unofficial ghost consultant for the police. Will she be able to connect with any ghosts to find out just what is really going on at the Murder House? On the other hand, could she become the next victim, of a human killer or a ghostly brigade?

At times scary and spooky and at other times seemingly a normal murder mystery, Home for the Haunting will keep you on the edge of your seat. I know I kept turning page after page, often holding my breath while I wait to see what happened next.

You can't go wrong with a Juliet Blackwell mystery. The Haunted Home Renovation Mystery series is classic in my book, and I keep them proudly displayed on a bookshelf in my bedroom. After all, if I can't sleep, what could be better than a paranormal murder mystery?!
