Review: The House on Tradd Street by Karen White

The House on Tradd Street
by Karen White

Publisher: Berkley
Pages: 329
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Melanie Middleton hates to admit she can see ghosts. A man she recently met died, leaving his historic Tradd Street home; complete with a dog and family of ghosts anxious to tell their secrets. 

Jack Trenholm, a gorgeous writer obsessed with unsolved mysteries, has reason to believe diamonds from the Confederate Treasury are hidden. He turns the charm on with Melanie, to discover he's the smitten one.

Kritters Thoughts:  The first in the series and if you want to know what I feel about each in the series, I will be reviewing each of the books each day.  

Melanie Middleton has known since a young age that she has special abilities, but she has hidden them for a long time.  She inherits a home in historic Charleston full of spirits, ghosts and things and she has to confront her abilities and solve a mystery.  Of course, in walks a gorgeous author who wants to help solve the mystery and write a book at the same time.

Just recently, I commented on a review that I am not into spirits and ghosts.  While that remains the same, the way this book presented them was interesting and entertaining AND there was a plot beyond the ghosts and such.  The mystery of the home was enough of a plot to have ghosts be a sideline thing and I could still enjoy the book.  I will only say this comment in this review as I am assuming that this will continue throughout the series.  
I also love Melanie Middleton.  She is smart and spunky and I love that she isn't a helpless lady who needs a man to help her solve the mystery, sure he helps, but she could have done it without him!  

This was a great start to the series, it has its own contained story, so excited to read the next four books!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Penguin Random House.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
