Introduction

The brilliant, chilling debut of Karen White's New York Times bestselling Tradd Street series, featuring a Charleston real estate agent who loves old houses—and the secret histories inside them.

Practical Melanie Middleton hates to admit she can see ghosts. But she's going to have to accept it. An old man she recently met has died, leaving her his historic Tradd Street home, complete with housekeeper, dog—and a family of ghosts anxious to tell her their secrets.

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

It turns out Jack's search has caught the attention of a malevolent ghost. Now, Jack and Melanie must unravel a mystery of passion, heartbreak—and even murder.

  "It's good, but the follow up in the series is even better. So read it."by riegerd (see profile) 09/28/11

I accidentally read the first book in this Karen White series first and loved it. Then I realized there was a book before it and went back to read this one. I definitely liked the second one better. It... (read more)

  "The House on Tradd Street - Formulaic & predictable"by kellyperx (see profile) 09/30/10

This book could have been so much more than it was. The author started many interesting story threads but didn't fully develop any of them. The characters are mostly one-note. I liked the mystery theme,... (read more)
