    "Best so far!"

    I loved The House on Tradd Street and The Girl on Legare Street, but I believe The Strangers on Montagu Street is my favorite of the three in this series. I listened to the entire book in just a little over 24 hours - and it's not like I didn't have anything else to do! I admit to being somewhat surprised by how much I enjoy this series. I usually listen to history, or historical fiction. I am a West coast person who has never even visited Charleston. But when I listen to Aimee Bruneau's excellent narration I can feel the sunlight, smell the flowers, and picture the neighborhoods so clearly. I felt a little sad as this book neared the end because I doubted there would be a 4th installment - but I was thrilled to hear "to be continued" at the closing.
    If you like a touch of the paranormal that isn't so scary that it will make you hide under the covers at night, this series is just right. There is romance, but it's not overwhelming. Brava Ms. White!

    Story
    "Best book yet"
    Would you listen to The Strangers On Montagu Street again? Why?

    I would listen to this whole series again, and especially this book! I can listen to Aimee Bruneau read in her melodic Southern voice for hours. The story itself is intricate and merits the extra attention of another read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Strangers On Montagu Street?

    Karen White does such a great job in painting a creepy picture. The description of the Montagu house and the ghost in the turret will stick with me for a long time.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was right after Nola's meltdown, when Melany was trying to comfort the poor girl and Jack sat in the other room listening. It was so sweet and heartfelt.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I found myself doing extra dishes and folding extra laundry to give me an excuse to keep the earbuds in my ears!


    Any additional comments?

    The third book ends with a big question mark! I will be waiting anxiously for book four!

    Story
    "I want more from Karen White and Aimee Bruneau"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Strangers On Montagu Street to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Aimee Bruneau is a PERFECT Melany Middleton. She even does great with the other characters. I have my own image in my mind of each character.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nola! She has talent, but has a good perspective.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It was interesting reading how Bonnie would appear, but it is was suspenseful wondering where the dolls from the dollhouse would turn up next. Makes me wonder if that could have happened to the dollhouse I had as a kid! :)


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

    I have no idea.. not a good tag line writer... :) Sorry

    "Fun, if complicated, mystery"

    his one had just a little too much going on. The mystery of Nola's mother and the music, the mystery of the dollhouse and the ghosts on Montagu Street, and the drama with Melanie and Jack/Jack's Book/Melanie's birthday all kind of overwhelmed this book. I enjoyed it, but not as much as the first two. I was also disappointed in the resolution of the Montagu Street mystery. It seemed almost as an afterthought, especially considering the title of the book.

    "Just simply enjoyable"
    What did you love best about The Strangers On Montagu Street?

    This is the third in Karen Whites "House on a street" series. All are equally good, easy to listen to, not difficult to get in to.
    A big part of the story is the renovation process of historical houses, very interesting. I very much enjoyed the ghost story aspect, and of course, there is a romantic thread throughout. All in all difficult to pick out a "best" bit, however, I did really love that I found it interesting


    What other book might you compare The Strangers On Montagu Street to and why?

    I can't recall reading anything that might compare, in storyline or setting.
    Except maybe it compares to a few books where the female main character behaves in a predictably annoying manner, making silly choices that lead to the duly foreseeable trouble or misunderstanding, no, didn't like that aspect


    What about Aimee Bruneau’s performance did you like?

    Incomparable, could listen to her reading the Financial Times.
    Lovely voice, each characters voice and manner pleasingly conveyed
    Masterful accents


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was


    Any additional comments?

    Mystery, suspense, humour, nothing too heavy or distressing? I do so hope there will be further books featuring Melanie and the Houses

    I love a good book, but never have time to sit and read. Audible is wonderful for people like me. Even though my kids think I am a nerd for always having my headphones on, someday they will wish their college books were on audible!

    "Very good, scary at times"

    Great ghost story, one in a series. It has great continuity & wonderful characters. Somewhere in the book the writer kinda lost the original characters individuality, not a lot but enough to make me go hmmmm. But still a great book.

    "Interesting"
    What made the experience of listening to The Strangers On Montagu Street the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the first 2 books of Karen White's. This was like the next installment of mystery and ghosts.


    What other book might you compare The Strangers On Montagu Street to and why?

    The first 2 books she wrote


    What about Aimee Bruneau’s performance did you like?

    The use of many voices. All were very distinctive and I thought fit the characters..


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Occasionally I like stories that are different, this one has the slant of seeing ghosts, Even though a lot of the story was predictable, it held my interest. It was a fast read type book
