But ... while I really liked the characters in the first of the series, the whole relationship between real estate agent extraordinaire and reluctant "medium" M...more
I didn't like the evil overtone of one of the spirits or how strongly Melanie's mother felt them. This book crept closer to the line between this world and the occult than I usually like.
Melanie was irritatingly wishy-wash...more
The story is quite exciting, and White is adept at leading you by the nose down what you are very certain is one clearly-marked path of storyline, before unceremoniously pulling a one-eighty on you and shoving you down a completely different route!
One note: you really need to read the first book...more
It's the sequel to The House on Tradd Street. Melanie Middleton and Jack Treholm need to solve another ghost-related mystery. Plus this time Melanie's mother has come back from a 30+ year absence to help them as well.
This is a good story. I like the ghost story aspect(that isn't too scary). I especially like that Melanie's ability is a given-a lot of books spend time focusing on the main character not knowing she had this ability, realizing, coming to terms with it, e...more
I am also not impressed with Melanie. In the first book, she had her o...more

In The Girl on Legare Street, the sequel to The House On Tradd Street, Melanie Middleton, a successful real estate broker returns, as does Jack Treholm, the handsome writer who is obsessed with unsolved mysteries. To Melanie's surprise, her mother Ginnette, who left Melanie and her husband when Melanie was just seven years old has arrived on the scene as well. Ginnette has returned to Charleston, South Carolina, to confront her past and make amends with the daughter she left behind, but Melanie...more
However, I found Melanie a lot more likable in this one. And a little less self-centered. I enjoyed reading about her softening as her relationship with Ginette, her long-lost mother, progressed. I was more inclined to empathize with her anger towards Ginette in this book simply because Ginette was a character who played a present role in the book, rather than an absent one. This does not mean that Melanie's...more
Well, where shall I begin? For starters, let's say I loved this book more than The House on Tradd Street. Don't get me wrong, I loved that book, but this book is better in my opinion. And also, I loved seeing Realtor Melanie Middleton and True historical crime writer Jack Trenholm are back together again working on another project - t...more

This one is much heavier on the ghosts and the mystery and takes a step back from the romance novel aspect which I appreciated. White lays out the clues in a way that makes the reader feel like t...more
So, the storyline with all the genealogy really had me confused at times. I thought Melanie's mom's excuse for leaving her when she was little was REALLY lame, I mean, really lame. I don't think Marc L...more
Again, Melanie together with Jack, and the rest of her family and friends unravel a mystery that is buried in the Prioleau family's past. The mystery is good. I di...more
