    Originally published at Book Lovers Inc.My Thoughts We were just in San Antonio for WorldCon and took a bus tour that went around the King William area where this book and the series takes place The residents of the area are too snooty too allow the tours to drive through Small world.But the houses are old, Victorian, and definitely did look like they either needed a lot of money or a lot of maintenance Or both at once.Who names their daughters Araceli and Biddy I m just saying Danny Ramos Originally published at Book Lovers Inc.My Thoughts We were just in San Antonio for WorldCon and took a bus tour that went around the King William area where this book and the series takes place The residents of the area are too snooty too allow the tours to drive through Small world.But the houses are old, Victorian, and definitely did look like they either needed a lot of money or a lot of maintenance Or both at once.Who names their daughters Araceli and Biddy I m just saying Danny Ramos, on the other hand, not only sounds like, but apparently is, sex on a stick And it s a quality he generally exploits in his off work time Possibly occasionally in his on work time, there were a couple of moments when I wondered But that s not this story.You ve heard of horse whisperers Danny is a house whisperer Old houses tell him their secrets, and he is an expert at spinning those secrets into terrific stories that he uses to sell old houses to new owners Expensive old houses.Danny is a real estate agent, which should not be a novel worthy profession, except when the house is demon raddled How does Danny know the house is possessed by a demon At first, all he knows is that the house freaks him out, really, really badly Then, he gets introduced to the woo woo side of his family history, and discovers that his extra special talent at selling houses is an extra sensory talent.Mom forgot to tell him that he comes from a very long line of mediums The houses really are speaking to him Or their ghosts are.When the story opens, the biggest problem in Danny s life is that his paranoid boss Araceli is out to get him fired By the end, his biggest problem is that he needs to burn down a historic carriage house to stop a soul eating demon from getting loose and possessing the good citizens of San Antonio.Verdict This is way, wayfun than it ought to be based on the description I was reading the next book in the series, Medium Rare, for a tour, and the recap of previous events sounded so wild that I couldn t resist getting this one just to see what the heck happened This is pretty much of a hoot.One of the bizarre things about the Ramos family is that the family talent for being a medium comes from the Riordan side, from their mother Even weirder is that not only is Danny not supposed to have inherited the talent, but the Riordan side doesn t run to boys He and his brother are the first males in the family in centuries Mom s reactions to finding out that he has a demon to get rid of and that she has to own a talent she tried to forget are beyond interesting Come to think of it, a book of mom s love story with dad and getting out of the family business might be pretty good.I both liked Biddy and she drove me nuts She has been letting her older sister Araceli dictate her life for much too long, but I don t have an exact fix on how old Biddy is Gratitude, even for an extreme sacrifice, can only go so far Biddy is a musician, and she s not just fantastic at it herself but she s fronting an absolutely awesome group Biddy needs to devote herself to her music, and Araceli is pressuring her to give it up permanently There s something wrong in that dynamic that weakens both characters and turns Araceli into a stereotypical paranoid career ladder climbing bitch.Biddy s family dynamics were not just awful but the resolution was too quick at the end Danny s were terrific, even as the big family secret got revealed And I loved the research into the house.There is a romance between Biddy and Danny that is a big part of the story These two people are both figuring out who they really are, as well as figuring out they belong together They have to do the first before they completely manage the second.I give Medium Well by Meg Benjamin 4 stars

    Danny Ramos is a real estate agent who is put in charge of selling a carriage house in a historic district of San Antonio, Texas He s not thrilled that he gets to sell JUST the carriage house when his boss is selling the actual house but he ll do his best.Danny and his awkward assistant, Biddy, head off to show the house to a potential client and it s the first time they get to see the property To say its in horrible condition is putting it mildly The place is a nightmare mess and on top of t Danny Ramos is a real estate agent who is put in charge of selling a carriage house in a historic district of San Antonio, Texas He s not thrilled that he gets to sell JUST the carriage house when his boss is selling the actual house but he ll do his best.Danny and his awkward assistant, Biddy, head off to show the house to a potential client and it s the first time they get to see the property To say its in horrible condition is putting it mildly The place is a nightmare mess and on top of that Danny starts seeing things like blood all over the kitchen Fortunately for him it s not real but does that mean he s losing his mind Biddy feels like the place is freezing, but no one sees the blood but him.After going to bed one night and being astral projected into the carriage house and seeing ghosts he decides to fess up about what s happening to both Biddy and his mother whose family has had mediums in it for years The three of them discover that the house not only has ghosts but so muchTrying to figure out how to put the boss off from trying to sell the place, keeping his job and also figuring out if he can get rid of the evil spirit that s inhabiting the carriage house makes for some stressful times.During all of this Danny sees a different side of Biddy than he d seen previously He finds out she sings in a band as well as plays the fiddle While he s surprised he also realizes that this is the true Biddy and she s only at the real estate office to make her sister happy Danny can t keep his mind off of Biddy but every love story has its problems.I wasn t sure what to expect when I opened this book It s not my normal kind of read but I was intrigued enough by the blurb to open it up I have to admit that it was a bit odd for the first part of the book til about 40% in Then the ghost story gotinteresting, Danny and Biddy s romance took off and I definitely wanted to see what happened in the end.Danny was a character that I got good and bad vibes from At some points he just seemed extremely shallow but then he seemed to come around thetime he spent with Biddy who was very down to earth I liked how he was with his family but there were times that I wanted to slap him in the back of his head for some of the things he said to Biddy Lol Especially since Biddy was so great I loved the way the author described Biddy and her band I could totally hear their music in my head as well as the excitement that their audiences were feeling it was pretty cool.My issues with the book included the fact that the ghost story was a bit convoluted in the end I understood it perfectly but then the author felt that it needed to be explained to me yet again and that didn t set well with me I think the author should have hadconfidence in her readers to understand Also, in the blurb it talks about Danny having a gift of almost having the houses he sells talk to him We were told that he had an affinity with the houses he sells but we never actually get to SEE it and it was a bit frustrating When he sees the blood at the carriage house he freaks right out so I m guessing that a house had never quite talked to him like that I guess I thought since it was mentioned we d getinformation about that and we didn t.In the end it was a good story Yes, it started off slow but it definitely got better If you like ghost stories I think you ll enjoy this one.Rating 3.25 out of 5This review was originally posted on Book Binge by Tracy

    I won this book in a contest and was happy to read it since I m a big fan of Meg s Konigsburg, TX series It s set in San Antonio which is a somewhat uncommon setting for a romance and a nice change from the smaller town setting Although I had read the synopsis and knew there was a paranormal element to this book, I was surprised in a good way at how much of it there was I like paranormals, especially when those elements are well integrated into the plot, as was the case here, rather than ju I won this book in a contest and was happy to read it since I m a big fan of Meg s Konigsburg, TX series It s set in San Antonio which is a somewhat uncommon setting for a romance and a nice change from the smaller town setting Although I had read the synopsis and knew there was a paranormal element to this book, I was surprised in a good way at how much of it there was I like paranormals, especially when those elements are well integrated into the plot, as was the case here, rather than just thrown in randomly Also, I should note that the synopsis makes the book sound rather dark, but although it does deal with ghosts and hauntings, the tone of the book is not heavy or too suspenseful The plot has those elements, but because Meg Benjamin does light romance so well, you never feel overwhelmed by them I initially wasn t as interested in the book because of the synopsis, so I m so glad that I won a copy because I would have missed a great romance otherwise.Danny, the hero, is referred to as a house whisperer He s done really well in real estate, because he seems to understand the story behind the houses he sells, and is easily able to find the right buyers for them When he s given a rundown old carriage house to sell, he goes to see it unsuspecting, only to find himself having visions of past violence when he walks into the kitchen of the house As the plot continues, it turns out that on the maternal side, the women in his family were all mediums who could communicate with the dead and a former inhabitant of the house is clearly trying to communicate with him Danny then tries to solve the mystery of the carriage house, while in the meantime falling hard for his new assistant, Biddy, who in turn is falling hard for him.Danny was a bit of a player although not in a mean way He s just a good looking guy who s never had to work much to attract women and he s somewhat clueless regarding the women in his life He was respectful of his family, and a bit befuddled by the paranormal happenings, trying to take charge, but not succeeding all that well I loved that he was very protective of Biddy and his mother, but he didn t have all of the answers and didn t turn into some superhero alpha male when confronted with a situation that he couldn t explain or control Biddy was wonderful When we are first introduced to her, she comes off as a ditzy and hapless assistant, but it turns out that she s only working at the real estate office to please her sister, the manager of the office Her real love is music She s a talented singer violinist who has organized an eclectic band and is trying to break into the local music scene When she s performing she is in her element She s strong, sexy, and take charge She has a crush on Danny, but she doesn t roll over for him They come together as equals and their romance is strong and sweet I really loved this book I can t wait to read the next one All I can say is, don t be put off by the synopsis Buy this book It s a great romance and I think fans of Meg s previous books will be pleased as will new to her readers
