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!

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!

Better Than the First Two

The main character continues her lack of maturity but the book entertains me just fine. In real life, I would avoid her but would enjoy the company of several other characters including the young teen, Nola. I find it hard to decide between three and four stars thanks to being spoiled by The Dresden Files (which needs 1000 stars) so take my star rating with that in mind if you are considering this audio book.

A Ghostbuster with class.

I enjoy how this story holds mystery with suspense, and a light romance. Melanie is a true lady while helping the restlessness spirits in her life...both living and dead.

CAPTIVATING!!!

I LOVE THIS SERIES! I've just recently discovered this Author and the series. I absolutely LOVED this book. The first book was great, the second book I didn't like so much, but this one I think surpassed the first one. I have fallen in love with the characters. I've read where some thought the main character "Mellie" was annoying, but she's not, all of the characters have flaws and you find yourself rooting for them.

I found myself discussing with my husband, what I thought the secret of Ms. Julia's was. I had it half right!! I LOVE the suspense!

Great book! A must-read! Can't wait for the next one!!

Love it!

This a wonderful continuation of The House on Tradd Street series. The twist & turns of the storyline kept my full attention. The narrator did an excellent job and so glad they have kept her through the series.

Best in series

In this book I didn’t want to strangle Melanie for being so stubborn and prissy. I enjoyed this book and the ghost story. Jacks daughter is a good character to add.
