In this book we find Mel Turner bidding a renovation job in San Francisco Castro district. The house has a history of ghosts and the new owners plan on creating a haunted bed and breakfast establishment. Mel needed to spend a night in the house in order to win the bid. A young girl, Annabelle meets Mel as she enters the house for the first time. Mel is startled to learn that Annabelle does in the 1800’s. The night, Mel and her competitor, Josh are spending the night, the owner of the house, Mrs. Bernini is found dead in a well. Mel seeking answers for death explores several avenues.
The owner of the house is in dispute. The toy room is usually locked but whenever it is open the ghosts are busy. Can ghosts hurt or kill a person? Mel needs an answer before in order to win the contract. I highly recommend this book and series.
