Book Review: Keeper of the Castle by Juliet Blackwell

 Title: Keeper of the Castle
 Author: Juliet Blackwell
 Series: Book 5 A Haunted Home Renovation Mystery
 Publisher: The Penguin Group
 Format: Paperback
 Source: Received for review from Publisher
 Reviewed by: Marlene

 Mel Turner of Turner Construction is an experienced renovator of historical homes in the San Francisco area and one who can communicate with ghosts, oh, and a woman as well. After reluctantly taking on another project where ghosts may be present and a project that may be out of her league, the restoration of a Scottish castle.

 She soon comes face to face with a hated building inspector, a charming motivational speaker, a very hungry woman, a Scottish man in a kilt, another with a sword and a woman with no past. And only two of those are ghosts. Mel must navigate her work duties, family, her own investigation into a murder and an attempted murder on the job site as well as trying to find out how to help the two ghosts trapped within the unfinished castle. While one ghost is searching for their room the other is protecting an unattainable love.

 I loved Mel and her dog. She is a woman that is in control of her life even though I don't know if she is 100% sure of that. There is quite the cast of characters in the book. I like them all till the end. Even the killer. Even though I haven't read the previous in the series from the background given is perfect for you to able to understand the relationships between Mel and her friends and her past.

 It was a great story!
