Dead Bolt: A Haunted Home Renovation Mystery (Haunted Home Repair Mystery)

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.

    This was one of those books that was creepy is a very real way that just gets under my skin. It was a great read with interesting twists. I love the idea of Mel running Turner Construction and her wearing skirts under her work bibs. It just makes a really fun picture. I like that this was not all about the ghosts and the haunting in the house but many different relationships, and not all romantic ones. I loved the fact that the relationship between Mel and her ex-husband’s son is explored in a few different ways along with Mel’s relationship with her father.

    I wish that I had more to say about this but I just don’t it was a good read but it really had me going for a bit because of the real creepy feel of ghost. I do think that I understood a lot of the construction stuff due to my husband working in the business. That helped me a lot, I could see myself getting frustrated if I didn’t have any knowledge.

    As I am sitting her writing this, I realized that I completely forgot about the murder and the solving of the mystery because I was so focused on the ghosts. I am not sure what that says about the story.

    I was first drawn to this series because I used to build and remodel houses, then I enjoyed these wonderful characters and couldn’t get enough. Mel Turner is a take charge kind of gal, very organized, meticulous and not afraid of much except maybe getting her heart broken. She also has a special gift that at times is as much a curse as a blessing. With traits like these readers can’t help but care about her as we take each step right along with her, up those attic stairs or home to her Dad, Stan and Caleb, or even into those confusing romantic situations. She is funny and smart, the kind of friend you would want to tag along with, even when she’s off trying to get a family of ghosts to move along and out of the house she desperately wants to finish renovating.

    This book is fun, entertaining with perfect amounts are mystery, mayhem and haunting characters. I loved every word!!
