Reading Room: The House on Tradd Street by Karen White
This book is my first foray into the writings of Karen White. What about it kept me reading? I honestly do not know. Seriously, I don't. Usually I can pinpoint one thing, but with this book, I just kept reading. I needed to know what was going to happen. I like a good story and mystery, and Karen White had me turning page after page until my eyes burned because it was hours past my bedtime. Oh, and Jack is wonderful.
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.
The Reading Room is where I share books, because authors are readers, too! I don't review books on my blog, but I do like to share books I've read and enjoyed. I call it "sharing the book love." My tastes are eclectic, so expect to see everything from sweet, wholesome romance to edge-of-your-seat, sexy thrillers.
