Murder on the House
#3 in the Haunted Home Renovation Series
Bed and Breakfast...with a side of ghosts.
Since word has spread that contractor Mel Turner can communicate with the spirits of the dead, it's been difficult to maintain a low profile. She embraces her new reputation, however, for the chance to restore an historic house in San Francisco's Castro District. The new owners, who hope to run a haunted B&B, want Mel to encourage the ghosts that supposedly roam the halls to enhance the paranormal charm.
The catch: Mel has to spend one night in the house to win the project. But during the spine-chilling sleepover, the estate gains another spectral inhabitant—when someone doesn't survive the night. And as Mel tries to coax the resident spirits into revealing the identity of the killer, she risks becoming the next casualty of this dangerous renovation.

"...take a strong heroine who doesn't pretend to be fearless, and an offbeat cast of characters, add a pinch of humor, and toss in history of the San Francisco area. That's the recipe for an entertaining mystery."
