Publisher's Summary

San Francisco millionaire Andrew Stirling wants to sell his Victorian mansion, but ghostly music, the squeaking of a long-disappeared weathervane, and an angry ghost keep running off potential buyers. After a famous psychic is called in, she informs the Stirlings that their multimillion-dollar renovations to "update" the home have left its resident ghost extremely agitated. So contractor Mel Turner is engaged to track down and replace some of the original features of the house. But when the beautiful psychic is found stabbed, it appears that someone had a very human motive for murder. Now Mel must use her ghost whispering gift to uncover the secrets of the haunted house on the hill and her sleuthing skills to catch a killer.

Several laugh out loud moments, excellent murder mystery, with a twist, ghosts! Xe Sands brings it to life. Fully enjoyed this book. I just wish I would have started from the first of the haunted house renovations series. I am now working my way back, but its OK I'm enjoying them too.

Best book in the entire series!

This story kept my complete attention from beginning to end. The setting is an old 4-story mansion in San Francisco that has been remodeled into a "modern monstrosity". A grumpy ghost, classical music, secret passageways and disembodied voices send potential buyers of the $29 million property running from the house vowing never to return. The very wealthy owner, and his heirs, are all desperate to sell and Mel is asked to hunt down as much of the original architectural pieces as possible in hopes of appeasing the grumpy ghost.

During her investigation into the home, Mel finds the murdered body of a very beautiful woman. Standing over the deceased is her oh so handsome brother. Could the brother, or a member of the wealthy family have had a reason to kill this beautiful woman?

On top of that, two more ghosts are present in this story. One is haunting friends of Mel and one is...well, I won't spoil that part of the story for you.

I will say that the ending of the book surprised me, yet delighted me at the same time. Xe Sands did a marvelous job narrating the book and I look forward the Haunted Home Renovation story!
