Publisher's Summary

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.

Enter Jack Trenholm, agorgeous writer obsessed with unresolved mysteries. He has no reason to believe that diamonds from the Confederate Treasury are hidden in the house. So he turns the charm on with Melanie, only to discover he's the smitten one...It turns out Jack's search has caught the attention of a malevolent ghost. Now, Jack and Melanie must unravel a mystery of passion, heartbreak - and even murder.

Karen White, author of 10 award-winning novels, is a graduate of Tulane University and the American School in London. She currently lives in Georgia with her husband and two children. When not writing, she spends her time reading, singing, scrapbooking, carpooling children and avoiding cooking.

    "Find another book"
    Would you try another book from Karen White and/or Aimee Bruneau?

    Would not try another book from Karen White. Found myself not listening and having to go back during this audiobook which is very rare for me. Story predictable and boring.

    "Love this book"

    Jack & Mellie love this series its spookie it leaves you on the edge of your seat, the romance between jack and mellie is so realistic. It has the fear, when meeting someone new the stupid things people do when you love someone and cant have them.

    "Great story!"

    I loved the story and overall the narration was good. One suggestion I would make would be to remove the extremely long pauses throughout the book. 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!

    "Enjoyed it."

    Enjoyable story with interesting details of old houses, even though the ending was very predictable.

    I am a Special Education teacher. I grew up in Ashland, Oregon, but have lived most of my life in Hawaii. My favorite reading/listening genres are history and historical fiction.

    Story
    "Engaging but not demanding"

    Honestly, I think I bought the book for its cover. Having realized how impulsive I had been, I was surprised by how much I liked listening to the story. I liked the ghost story that didn't have me hiding under my covers at night. I am not from South Carolina so I can't say if Ms. Bruneau mastered a Charleston accent, but I thought the narration was very good. This is a good book to listen to on a road trip or in traffic as it doesn't demand your full concentration but is still an engaging story.

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    This was a well written book, I will now be starting the sequel to this book. The other half of the story which this book had left you wondering about. Very enjoyable listen!

    "Intrigue, Suspense, Ghosts and Love!!!"

    What a fantastic book! I just couldn't stop listening! It kept my interest from the moment I heard the first words until the end! The narration was superb and the story was wonderful! I just ordered the sequel because I just can't get enough! Instead of a who-dun-it, it's more of a OMG, what happened and a where is "it"? To best describe this story without giving anything away, it's like Ghost Whisperer meets Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code) intrigue, meets Nicolas Sparks (The Notebook) rated G to PG love story. What a great ending, wonderful characters, and story development!

    "Mayo clinic?"

    Being from WNY, I can tell you I was impressed when she stated a character went to Rochester, NY. I was shocked that she said the Mayo Clinic is there. Work of fiction or not, it's kind of odd to have such a huge mistake. It detracts from the believablility of the story. Tradd St is real as is Legare St. Other than that, it makes me want to go back to Charleston and visit the ghosts.
