Happiness is a good book!
well, the first book was awesome, so I waited on this one too, it was boring as heck. I was all set to love it. All the characters changed, some that were strong were made to appear weak, wth?
A lot of reviews do not like this lead character, but she is kind of an administrative and organizational geek, so her lack of social development is not as surprising as it might be. It was mentioned that she grew up with an alcoholic father, and that, along with her mother's desertion, made exacting control over as many situations as possible, pretty normal. She felt that she was aging, so early far-sightedness might be kind of an irritant. The real estate sales business puts a premium on attractiveness, as does the culture of southern womanhood, so, wearing glasses might not fit in with those concepts. She also tried to control her interactions with Jack. There was no evidence that she was comfortable interacting with men, or, in fact, trusts them, a probable outcome of her father's disease. She was not fun, but, I think, was an interestingly developed character.
It was a good story line. Narration is a bit dull but fits the main character. I thought Sophie's character adds comedy to the drawn out plot. I really like Sophie and Chad. You can almost see their cuteness.
Great Ghost Story.
I've read all of the other books with Melany Middleton.
I've listened to all of Karen White's books with Aime Bruneau. I wish she would do more!
Melany Middleton or Jeannette. Rebecca got on my nerves.
I wish I'd known earlier these books probably should be read in order. I read return to Tradd Street as the SECOND book. Spoiler! ugh, now I know the ending.. :)
Retired RN High end of middle age or short end of old age! Adore Christian fiction, sci-fi fantasy, and mysteries.
Relax and enjoy
Enough of a plot to keep my interest, not so deep that I couldn't follow the book while doing home chores.
Apples and oranges. She does a good joy of narration without sounding silly. Her voice is clear with the right amount of expression.
My opinions are the same for the three "street" books.
Wonderfully written and the performance was stellar! The story line was unpredictable which made it fun.
When the fireplace wall was opened up and the secret room was revealed.
No, but going forward, I will look for books narrated by her.
Jack, because he was intriguing!
Loved the book and the mystery and humor... can't wait to listen to the next.
Couldn't get enough of it, some things may have been a bit predictible, but loved it anyways!
