A this sequel to The House on Tradd Street.

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.

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!
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.
I like historical, southern books - southern accents, antiques - The Ole' West, Ghost Towns, Victorian Era, Southern Humor!!
Karen White is great!!! Can't wait for more of Melanie and Jack! Aimee is an awesome narrator too!!!
Love books and love to put in my two cents' worth
Once is definitely enough, but for
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.
She has a great voice, a real asset to the book.
I would not make a film out of this.
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!
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?
