Karen White’s Tradd Street kept popping up on my recommendation list for a long time and now that I have read it, understand perfectly why it is a book for me. There’s a grumpy heroine, an old house with not 1 but 2 ghosts , romantic triangle , antiques that make my heart soar, missing diamonds and of course the murder mystery.
Melanie is a real estate agent who is gifted the house on Tradd Street unexpectedly and since she’s got the ability of seeing and hearing ghosts, the idea of an old house doesn’t charm her at all. There’s some quirky band of friends who are all endearing with distinctive characteristics. Along with her father and Jack who has his own agenda soon begins to unravel the mystery about the ghosts and a past that refuses to stay silent.
The writing is smooth even though it took some time for the story to sink into my mind but Charleston and the southern charm definitely works and Melanie and Jack are lovely with an unusual chemistry. Looking to read the series in whole.
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 Jacks search has caught the attention of a malevolent ghost. Now, Jack and Melanie must unravel a mystery of passion, heartbreak and even murder.
