Karen White's, "The House on Tradd Street" is a wonderful read; full of mystery, a Charleston home remodel, some Civil war history, and all with three ghosts in the mix. I truly enjoyed the banter between Jack and Melanie and their sexual tension made for more than a few good laughs. This is simply a great, fun read. Anyone who loves stories from the South will truly enjoy this first book in Ms. White's trilogy.
SYNOPSIS by Barnes & Noble
A brilliant, chilling series debut, featuring a Charleston real estate agent who loves old houses-and the secret histories inside them.
Practical Melanie Middleton hates to admit she can see ghosts. But she's going to have to accept it. An old man she recently met has died, leaving her his historic Tradd Street home, complete with housekeeper, dog-and a family of ghosts anxious to tell her their secrets.
Enter Jack Trenholm, a gorgeous writer obsessed with unsolved mysteries. He has reason to believe that diamonds from the Confederate Treasury are hidden in the house. So he turns the charm on with Melanie, only to discover he?s the smitten one...
It turns out Jack's search has caught the attention of a malevolent ghost. Now, Jack and Melanie must unravel a mystery of passion, heartbreak-and even murder.
