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.

    "Definitely worth the time and the credit!!"

    I liked this book as much if not more than the first book. Melanie and Jack make it a fun read because of the tension between them but the mystery gives it substance and worth the time and money. You will not go wrong buying this book. I can't wait to read the next story.....The Strangers On Montagu Street.

    "Great literature, no. Good diversion, yes."
    Would you listen to The Girl on Legare Street again? Why?

    Once is definitely enough, but for


    Would you recommend The Girl on Legare Street to your friends? Why or why not?

    If they are looking for something light, that you can put down and pick up again when you feel like it, then yes. For me it was perfect as a dog-walking accompaniment.


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

    She has a great voice, a real asset to the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I would not make a film out of this.

    "Another great book by Karen White"

    As i stated on my review of "The House on Tradd Street", I loved the story and overall the narration was good, I like listening to this narrator's voice. The book needs edits to remove the extremely long pauses throughout the book just like the previous title. Each time the narrator paused for an unusually long time I thought that my program had hung as it sometimes does. I would think that the audio could be edited to remove these long pauses which detract from the listening experience.
    Otherwise I highly recommend this book and I look forward to more from this author!

    "Nice listen"

    I had previously listened to the House on Trad street and found quite good, but even though this book was good, I feel it missed the mark a bit. In her first book the main character had psychic talents that she used, but in this book her talent was sorry missing and relied way too much on her mothers talent. At the end of the book she never tied up any of the loose ends and left you just waiting for the finish. Even the first book didn't leave you hanging as bad as this one did and you knew you could listen the the sequel to see how it all ended. But this one didn't. Now, is there eventually going to be a sequel to this one?
