Review The Guests on South Battery by Karen White

by Karen White

Publisher: Berkley NAL
Pages: 352
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  With her extended maternity leave at its end, Melanie Trenholm is less than thrilled to leave her new husband and beautiful twins to return to work, especially when she’s awoken by a phone call with no voice on the other end—and the uneasy feeling that the ghostly apparitions that have stayed silent for more than a year are about to invade her life once more. 
But her return to the realty office goes better than she could have hoped, with a new client eager to sell the home she recently inherited on South Battery. Most would treasure living in one of the grandest old homes in the famous historic district of Charleston, but Jayne Smith would rather sell hers as soon as possible, guaranteeing Melanie a quick commission. 
Despite her stroke of luck, Melanie can’t deny that spirits—both malevolent and benign—have started to show themselves to her again. One is shrouded from sight, but appears whenever Jayne is near. Another arrives when an old cistern is discovered in Melanie’s backyard on Tradd Street. 
Melanie knows nothing good can come from unearthing the past. But some secrets refuse to stay buried....

Kritters Thoughts:  The latest in this series centered around Melanie Middleton a realtor who has some hidden talents.  She is now juggling being a mom, her job, a wife, home owner - to a testie house and helping others.  Although this book wasn't my favorite of the series, I would say it is probably two or three.  

This one is high on the list because I love how it incorporates Melanie's family and really centers around her.  There were almost two separate mysteries in this one and it was interesting watching Melanie along with her mom solve them both.  

As I have said before I love Melanie as a character, I think I see myself in her a lot and reading it is just entertaining!  I just want to meet her and become friends with her!

My question after reading this book, is there room for more Melanie Middleton?  I could say yes, but not sure how much more.  

Rating:  absolutely loved it and want a sequel
