Karen White s The House On Tradd Street is part romance, part ghost story, part mystery The narration of this novel grips the reader with its beautiful descriptions of South Carolina and the historic neighborhoods of Charleston Melanie Middleton specializes in historic home sales, though she hates historic homes and believes those who buy historic homes are saps willing to waste thousands of dollars on renovations Fate brings her into the home of Mr Vanderhorst, who asks Melanie if she saw a woman in the garden He suddenly dies and leaves her his home.
Melanie is given a historic home and the money to renovate and repair it from the Vanderhorst estate There are a great cast of characters in this book from Mr Vanderhorst to his mother s ghost and Melanie, her father, and Jack Trenholm Melanie is a barracuda in the real estate world, but her inability to relate to her family or male compan Barely readable But that might just be me I know to my horror and disgust that there is a market for pseudo ghost story romance Southern literature.

Ugh I was tricked TRICKED And by my own self, which really embitters me.
I have a boring personal story that explains why I listened to this book and didn t give up when I realized I had picked the wrong piece of entertainment It s here view spoiler I had to buy a new used car at the end of October I couldn t afford to get my beloved vehicle fixed again so car payments it is I m still pretty upset about it all My new used car is a 2001 VW, one previous owner, upgraded with many whistles and bells, including a 6 disc CD changer.
In the trunk.
Because that s how they did it back then.
So let me paint you a picture Once upon a time, I used to pop CDs into my in dash CD player and listen to whatever I liked Now I load 6 discs into the magazine that s what the stereo display calls it cuz I ve apparently got a gun minded stereo , lock everything down, close the trunk, get into the car, Great book with great characters looking forward to reading the rest of the series
