The Last Curtain Call By Juliet Blackwell: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow


Turner Construction head Melanie Turner is finally working on her most important project; the remodel of her newly purchased 1911-built home in Oakland, California. Once owned by Mel’s family and gifted to her by her fiancé Landon Demetrius, the couple is now negotiating the relationship-testing challenge of a home renovation. The battle of wallpaper versus paint gets put on pause when Mel’s foreman discovers a hidden room in their attic. While Mel knows that a sealed-off room rarely hides something good, this time she discovers a treasure-trove sure to win the fashion-loving contractor’s heart.

A Magical Match By Juliet Blackwell: Review/Giveaway/Behind the Book Interview

by Cynthia Chow



Lily Ivory knew she was going to have her hands full when she agreed to have her vintage clothing shop sponsor a coven’s fund-raising Magical Match Tea. Haight-Ashbury’s Welcome coven prided itself on being inclusive and well, welcoming, so what initially began as a matching-outfits mother-daughter event soon evolved into an all-gender, mother-figure brunch.

A Ghostly Light By Juliet Blackwell: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow


Melanie “Mel” Turner, the owner of San Francisco’s Turner Construction, has several gifts. First, she can look at the most ramshackle of buildings and envision its potential beauty, as well as the possibilities to provide comfort and happiness. Her other talent is truly magical, as Mel has recently begun seeing and communicating with the ghosts. Her last experience at helping a spirit cross over still has Mel recovering from her own brush with death, suffering with a case of PTSD-induced vertigo.

A Toxic Trousseau By Juliet Blackwell: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow


Considering that her familiar is a goblin-gargoyle who transforms into a food-motivated pot-bellied pig, Lily Ivory shouldn’t have been too surprised that his antics would land them in trouble. She never expected that it would arrive in the form of a lawsuit though, one accusing Oscar of head-butting a customer, causing head and neck injuries, and reducing the quality of life.

Give Up the Ghost By Juliet Blackwell: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow


When historical home contractor Melanie “Mel” Turner accepted the Pacific Heights project from millionaire venture capitalist Andrew Flynt, she thought that seeing its stripped-down modernization would be the most horrific sight she would encounter. The cheap, house-flipping previous renovation might be offensive in her perfectionist eyes, but it doesn’t compare to the discovery of the body of Chantelle, the very pricey psychic Andrew Flynt hired to clear out the ghosts haunting his Crosswinds mansion.

Keeper of the Castle: A Haunted Home Renovation Mystery By Juliet Blackwell

by Cynthia Chow


Although San Francisco contractor Melanie Turner has developed an ability to see ghosts, she’s not yet ready to admit to the existence of omens. It would be hard to argue that the Wakefield project hasn’t seen its share of bad luck though; contractors walking off of the job, a series of accidents, and even angry protestors have all been plaguing the site.
