The A Haunted Home Renovation series is a winner. They can be read as stand-alone but the books are better read in order. The Protagonist is Mel Turner, she is recovering from a divorce and her Father has major medical problems. Mel took over the family business of reconstruction and has been running it successfully. Other characters are Dog, a stray that she rescued. Her Father and his disabled friend, Stan. There is Calbel, her stepson from her marriage. Graham, her boyfriend. Olivier the go to for spirit matters. Annette Crawford, a homicide, Stephen, a barrister, and Zeke, a photographer. Mel learns in the first book that she has inherited her Mother’s gift to see ghosts. The stories touch upon social problems and our opinions of spirituality.
This is the second book in the series. Mel is working a Queen Anne Victorian home for a software developer and his Russian wife, Katenka, and baby, Quinn. Katenka is scared because of strange noises she hears and the workman noticed tools and other objects have moved. There a door that a Deadbolt on it. If a person gets near the door, the ghosts become active. Mayhem occurs in another part of the house. Mel is still learning about her gift and attempting to learn more about. I high!y recommend this book and series.
