Review: The Strangers on Montagu Street by Karen White

The Strangers on Montagu Street
by Karen White

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

Goodreads:  Psychic realtor Melanie Middleton is still restoring her Charleston house and doesn't expect to have a new houseguest, a teen girl named Nola. But the girl didn't come alone, and the spirits that accompanied Nola don't seem willing to leave...

Kritters Thoughts:  The third book in this series and as I said yesterday, I definitely agree that you should start at book one and I won't spoil anything in this review, but I say go back to my review on Monday and start with the series there.

As I also said yesterday, the first few chapters definitely give the reader a little easy synopsis of the high points of the previous book and help get the reader "back" into this story, especially if you have been away from it for a bit.

I like the mystery in this book.  I liked it because it didn't involve back stabbing or malicious characters as in the previous - not saying who so as not to spoil!  I liked that it just felt like a true mystery and it brought in the interesting ways that Southern folks are and have been for a long time.  The previous two felt very Southern and very Charleston, but for some reason this one felt the most Charlestonian!

I would say that this series is building and building and I am liking it.  I like that because the author has used multiple books to build it, it is a nice slow burn in terms of development of the characters, but again the mystery is self contained in each book.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Berkley.  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.
