Mel Turner renovates historic homes and specializes in restoring older
homes in the San Francisco area. Along the way, she has encountered
ghosts and murder mysteries that seem to always pop up on her
construction sites. Mel's friend Alicia hires Mel's company to renovate
an old lighthouse into an inn. However, there is a ghost that haunts the
lighthouse stairs. This mournful ghost creates lots of drama for Mel
when the renovation first begins. Always making things eventful on the
job site, Mel wonders why this ghost is still hanging around the
lighthouse. But this is not the only mystery we have to solve: Alicia's
abusive ex-husband shows up making trouble of his own. When he
takes an unexpectedly fatal fall down the lighthouse stairs, things seem
to point to Alicia... Was the ghost to blame for his death, or was it just
This time of the year when the weather starts to turn cooler and the
days start to get shorter is the perfect time to read a good mystery
novel. There is nothing better on a cool, gloomy day than snuggling up
with a warm blanket, a hot cup of tea and a good mystery.
A GHOSTLY LIGHT is the perfect
mystery to get lost in. While this book is the seventh book in the
Haunted Home Renovation Series
, it can easily be read as a standalone novel.
The lighthouse makes for the perfect setting for a good mystery. I really
love lighthouses so when I got the chance to read about a mystery that
takes place in one, I knew I would get lost in the story. This along with a
good well-rounded list of characters who have interesting backstories
makes this book a must-read. I really enjoyed the paranormal elements
that help make this mystery a good read that will make you jump at all
the things that go bump in the night. I did add the previous novels in
the Haunted Home Renovation Mystery Book Series to my reading list.
In the latest mystery from the New York Times
bestselling author of Give Up the Ghost, it will take
a beacon of ghostly intervention to guide contractor Mel
Turner to the truth...
Dangerous tides ahead...
When her friend Alicia hires Turner Construction to renovate
a historic lighthouse in the San Francisco Bay, Mel Turner
can’t wait to get her hands dirty. Alicia plans to transform
the island property into a welcoming inn, and while Mel has
never attempted a project so ambitious—or so tall—before,
she’s definitely up for the challenge.
But trouble soon arises when Alicia’s abusive ex-husband
shows up to threaten both her and Mel, and later turns up
dead at the base of the lighthouse stairs. With no other
suspects in sight, things start looking choppy for Alicia.
Now, if Mel wants to clear her friend’s name, she’ll need
the help of the lighthouse’s resident ghosts to shine a
light on the real culprit...
