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.

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.

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.
