The Girl on Legare Street


I love this series!  Ghost stories + a little romance = FUN!  The Girl on Legare Street by Karen White lives up to it’s precursor, The House on Tradd Street. We are again brought into the life of Melanie Middleton, Charleston realtor with sixth sense.  Things have settled in her life a bit since exorcising the evil spirits of the historic home she now lives in.  While renovations continue to restore it to its former glory, Melanie’s mother, who abandoned her as a child, returns to Charleston to purchase Melanie’s ancestral house.  And now Melanie must both confront her mother as well as the hauntings of this second home.  A ghost in this home has a personal vendetta against Melanie and her mother, and their lives are in danger.  They must restore their relationship in order to be powerful enough to take on this spirit.

Of course the dashing and charming Jack Trenholm is around, working on his novel.  The relationship between him and Melanie is more than frustrating, but in a good way (or GREAT way).  Plus there’s a little romance between Melanie and a ghost, although not as extensive as Demi Moore-Patrick Swayze.  A cute ghost story- who would have thought!  I hope there will be more in the future.

    Your review popped up at the bottom of mine for “A Secret Kept.”. Glad to have another title to explore – and I enjoyed your review.
