Publisher's Summary

Return to the house on Tradd Street for one last time as the best-selling series featuring psychic medium Melanie Trenholm comes to a hauntingly spectacular finale.

After the devastating events of the past few months, the last thing Melanie Trenholm wants is to think about the future. Why, when her husband, Jack, has asked for a separation - a separation that might have been her fault? Nevertheless, with twin toddlers, a stepdaughter leaving for college soon, a real estate career to resume and a historic home that is still being restored, Melanie doesn’t have much time to wonder where it all went wrong - but that doesn’t stop her from trying to win her husband back.

Their relationship issues are pushed aside, however, when longtime nemesis, Marc Longo, comes to them with a proposition: allow their Tradd Street house to be used as the filming location for the movie adaptation of Marc’s best-selling book, and he will help Jack reestablish his stalled writing career. Despite Melanie’s hesitation, Jack jumps at the chance. But Melanie’s doubts soon prove to be well founded when she uncovers ulterior reasons for Marc wanting to be back in their house - reasons that include a hidden gem so brilliant that legend links it to the most infamous jewel of all, the Hope Diamond.

But Melanie has an unexpected ally in protecting the house and its inhabitants - the ghost of a Civil War era girl warns her of increasing threats to her family. But she’s not the only spirit who is haunting Melanie. A malevolent ghost seems determined to stop Melanie from investigating the decades-old murder of a friend’s sister, and this spirit will stop at nothing to protect its secrets - even from beyond the grave.

Melanie and Jack must work together to find the answers before evil spirits of past and present destroy everything they love.

Critic Reviews

“White finishes her Tradd Street series with panache…Charleston and its rich history provide a lovely backdrop to this tale of mystery, romance, and danger.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The blend of supernatural elements, mystery, and Southern women’s fiction reads like a combination of Victoria Laurie and Mary Alice Monroe.”—Booklist 

The Attic on Queen Street is ripe with family dynamics, a murder mystery, intrigue, and apparitions from the past, that just might help bring some much-needed closure to unfinished business for family and friends...For admirers of White and her Tradd Street novels, The Attic on Queen Street will literally reveal a hidden gem, while providing a bittersweet farewell. Fear not faithful followers, I bring you novel tidings of great joy. A few of White’s characters may find new life in another city full of southern charm.”—Holy City Sinner

Enjoyed

For the most part I have really enjoyed this series… although Melanie’s immaturity has been very painful to endure… ( although Jack gave her a run for her money in this last installment) … overall love the storyline and the descriptions of Charleston… absolutely love the humor and the supporting characters…. Love the ending….Really fun read…

Obvious

It was a nice book, but really obvious. The male characters are obnoxious and Melly should just leave Jack with all his relationship whiplash. I understand it’s supposed to be a story of their love prevailing, but it comes across as him being insecure and controlling.
The two mysteries solved were also very obvious as to who did what/ where the diamonds are hidden.
Nola was the only character I could somewhat like, but the use of the word “dank” was so cringe worthy I almost returned the book right then and there. Plus being so “drunk” she willingly walked into a burning building was as believable as the Easter bunny.
If you like the Netflix show Outer Banks, you’ll enjoy the book because the two are both ridiculous, unrealistic, and cringy, while mildly entertaining.

Amazing!

I have truly enjoyed all of the Tradd Street series… I have listened to them several times over! I have to say on this last one, I kind of got a little annoyed with the old Melanie, new Melanie reference. I just wasn’t used to the repetitive usage in Karen Whites stories. But, in the end it was a very very good story! Love them all, sad that this series ended.

A 5 STAR Series…

What a delightful southern mystery thriller (7 book series). Narrator was excellent with her southern charm and accents. Superb, well written storyline. Draws you in early and then you are hooked. Series has plenty of secrets and mysteries to uncover, with ghosts, romance and a touch of humor. I have enjoyed every book. Can’t wait for the next off-shoot series.
