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.

    Story
    "Interest capturing"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book to all my friends. I teach middle school Language Arts. We talk about characteristics of Southern Gothic all the time. (I realize this does not fit entirely into this genre). My husband and I go to Charleston frequently.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the history of the old house. The characters were well flushed out.


    Which character – as performed by Aimee Bruneau – was your favorite?

    Melanie Middleton. There wasn't enough description of Jack to know his entire personality.


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

    Yes, or I sure tried.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be interesting to perhaps write from Jacks perspective, or maybe from one of the other characters (after you've read Return to Tradd Street.) if you've read this, read Th e Girl from Lagare Street and THEN Return to Tradd Street. Happy reading.

    Story
    "Aaarrrgggghhhhh"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I didn't get to the story, the southern / german / new york / southern / rotating accent narration was so irritating, I ditched the story. Wasted credit!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Spies of the Balkans


    What didn’t you like about Aimee Bruneau’s performance?

    Needs to polish up one accent or the other, but can't switch in the middle of a sentence.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I had my credit back

    I like books but don't want to take the time to sit and read. I prefer longer ones of thriller and mystery.

    "Interesting"

    Not my typical book but did the 3 for 2 and it kept me interested and it wasn't to much girly romance just a bit but I didn't want to smack the main character too many times so...

    "Entertaining."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The House On Tradd Street to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version.


    What does Aimee Bruneau bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For me, she gives the characters a 3rd dimension. I have a tendency to skim description and listening to the story being told requires that I also have to listen to descriptions.

    "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.


    Would you recommend The House On Tradd Street to your friends? Why or why not?

    No

    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.

    Story
    "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!
