Keeper of the Castle

A Haunted Home Renovation Mystery

Ms. Juliet Blackwell never fails to give you a good haunted mystery. This one kept me guessing and wondering throughout the book. It’s just wonderful!

Turner Construction is having some problems and Ellis Elrich has decided to take over the management position of reconstructing the building. Little does he know that the building has some ghosts that are not being good ghosts and it also comes with a murder. The building inspector has been murdered and it seems the wrong man has been accused. Now, Mel and Graham find themselves looking danger in the face.

Mel not only has the Construction building to think about but she must try to put the angry ghosts at peace and somehow find the killer before it happens again.

The writing was very good. The story was interesting, fun and the writing seemed to be very smooth. I easily liked Mel and Graham. Their characters, their know how on constructions, and the ability of Mel to see ghosts. Mel has the knack for solving a mystery and helping the ghosts to be in peace. Mel is rather sarcastic but that adds to the interest of the story, along with her dog named Dog.

The reconstruction of the construction building along with the ghosts was fun and interesting to read. The author sort of made the reader feel that they were there and were trying to solve the mystery.

This book is a keeper and would be one to be read again. Mel and Graham were a joy to read about along with their ghosts.
