Publisher's Summary

A this sequel to The House on Tradd Street.

When Melanie Middleton was seven years old, her mother, Ginnette, left home, abandoning her husband and her daughter. Now, nearly 33 years later, Ginnette has returned to Charleston, South Carolina, to confront her past and make amends with the daughter she left behind. Melanie is less than thrilled when her mother reappears in her life and asks for her help in buying back the family home. But before she can slam the door in her mother's face, Ginnette tells her it was a premonition that brought her back - a premonition involving old family secrets and a malevolent presence. It has come for Melanie, and to fight it, they will have to stand together.

    "ho hum"

    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?

    "The Girl on Legare Street"



    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.

    "Good story line"

    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.

    "I am glued to this series."
    If you could sum up The Girl on Legare Street in three words, what would they be?

    Great Ghost Story.


    What other book might you compare The Girl on Legare Street to and why?

    I've read all of the other books with Melany Middleton.


    Have you listened to any of Aimee Bruneau’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to all of Karen White's books with Aime Bruneau. I wish she would do more!


    If you could take any character from The Girl on Legare Street out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Melany Middleton or Jeannette. Rebecca got on my nerves.


    Any additional comments?

    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.. :)

    "Better!"

    I found the second book a bit better than the first. However, I find the narrator a bit lack luster.

    "Fun Read"
    What did you love best about The Girl on Legare Street?

    Relax and enjoy


    What did you like best about this story?

    Enough of a plot to keep my interest, not so deep that I couldn't follow the book while doing home chores.


    What does Aimee Bruneau bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Apples and oranges. She does a good joy of narration without sounding silly. Her voice is clear with the right amount of expression.


    Any additional comments?

    My opinions are the same for the three "street" books.

    "Excellent!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Girl on Legare Street the most enjoyable?

    Wonderfully written and the performance was stellar! The story line was unpredictable which made it fun.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl on Legare Street?

    When the fireplace wall was opened up and the secret room was revealed.


    Have you listened to any of Aimee Bruneau’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but going forward, I will look for books narrated by her.


    If you could take any character from The Girl on Legare Street out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Jack, because he was intriguing!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the book and the mystery and humor... can't wait to listen to the next.
