In the fourth novel in the New York Times bestselling Tradd Street series, Charleston realtor Melanie Middleton is determined to leave the past behind her. But history has a tendency of catching up with her, whether she likes it or not...
Melanie is only going through the motions of living since refusing Jack Trenholm’s marriage proposal. She misses him desperately, but her broken heart is the least of her problems. Despite an insistence that she can raise their child alone, Melanie is completely unprepared for motherhood, and she struggles to complete renovations on her house on Tradd Street before the baby arrives.
When Melanie is roused one night by the sound of a ghostly infant crying, she chooses to ignore it. She simply does not have the energy to deal with one more crisis. That is, until the remains of a newborn buried in an old christening gown are found hidden in the foundation of her house.
As the hauntings on Tradd Street slowly become more violent, Melanie decides to find out what caused the baby’s untimely death, uncovering the love, loss, and betrayal that color the house’s history—and threaten her claim of ownership. But can she seek Jack’s help without risking her heart? For in revealing the secrets of the past, Melanie also awakens the malevolent presence that has tried to keep the truth hidden for decades...
I was so happy to see this sequel...
....to the previous book I had just finished, I had to give it 5 stars so I was able to read the rest of their story. If you don't enjoy this book as much as I have, look me up and I'll give you five bucks😉
Karen White's ability to bring to life not only her characters, but her settings as well, is truly amazing. If you have ever experienced the South and it's families and traditions, you will be able to place yourself in the midst of this book. If you haven't, Charleston and Tradd Street will be beckoning you to visit.
Karen White is brilliant
There are few books where the author captivates the reader. Karen White dies just that. I've read all of her books. I have to say that she keeps getting better and better. I cannot wait for her book!
