    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.

    Joanna says: "Pleasantly surprised"
    "A Breathe of Southern Air!"
    Overall

    Set in South Carolina, this novel is a good mix of light mystery, ghosts and a dash of romance. The plot was somewhat predictable but not annoyingly so. While having bits and pieces of paranormal, the novel was not the blood and guts type. Personally, I found the narrator to have a good handle on her accent for the main character because it was rather contrived and "prissy". While Melanie Middleton starts out with a healthy dose of over-organization, bandbox wardrobe clothing sense--even to the point of wearing pink capris and fancy sandals to do gardening and historical house restorations--she does evolve! I think the accent adds to her character and found myself reverting to my southern accent after listening for awhile. Sure it's a bit "labored" but I think it adds to the southern charm regardless of whether or no you think the accent is genuine Charleston.
    I enjoyed the book. It was a-hard-to-put-down-novel for me 'cause I kept wanting to see if I was guessing correctly or not. So long as your expectations are for a funny, light read, you should enjoy it. I just downloaded the next book in this series.
