Publisher Description

Charleston psychic Melanie Middleton discovers the past isn't finished revealing unsettling secrets in the third novel in the New York Times bestselling Tradd Street series.
 
With her relationship with writer Jack Treholm as shaky as the foundation of her family home, Melanie’s juggling a number of problems. Like restoring her Tradd Street house...and resisting her mother’s pressure to ‘go public’ with her talent—a sixth sense that unites them to the lost souls of the dead. But Melanie never anticipated her new problem.
 
Her name is Nola, Jack’s estranged young daughter who appears on their doorstep, damaged, lonely and defiantly immune to her father’s attempts to reconnect. Melanie understands the emotional chasm all too well. As a special, bonding gift Jack’s mother buys Nola an antique dollhouse—a precious tableaux of a perfect Victorian family. Melanie hopes the gift will help thaw Nola’s reserve and draw her into the family she’s never known.
 
At first, Nola is charmed, and Melanie is delighted—until night falls, and the most unnerving shadows are cast within its miniature rooms. By the time Melanie senses a malevolent presence she fears it may already be too late. A new family has accepted her unwitting invitation to move in—with their own secrets, their own personal demons, and a past that’s drawing Nola into their own inescapable darkness...

The series keeps you interested

The characters are likable and the reading easy. This series is a great one to read when you just want a good story that doesn’t require a lot thinking to try to connect any complicated dots.

Moving on to the Return to Tradd Street.

Entertains and yet can be frustrating

I suppose it is meant to be charming with the protagonist Mellie as being both uptight and clueless at times at middle age, but it becomes old and annoying. You want to root for her but give the reader a break on her character flaws. This writer has a tendency to use about every adjective to describe a scene, but when it came down to describe Mellie’s 40th. Birthday partydress the only thing she could say was plunging neckline. No color even? I love the storyline of her seeing ghosts but maybe start taking this character off narrating and be part of the story. I give it a three star.
