The first in a series concerning rundown mansions in the Charleston historical area. I have always enjoyed Karen White’s books. I found a skillfully written paranormal tale. The characters and the descriptions of houses, areas, and ghosts are first class. The protagonist, Melanie Middleton appears to have a negative character but as her story begins to unravel I understand her reactions.
Melanie is startled to learn she has inherited a house on Tradd Street. She wants nothing to do with it at first. The inheritance has strings attached but her friends convinced her to accept the gift. She is uneasy as she is a woman and child in the garden and highly influenced in the attic. Melanie meets two male friends, one a writer of historical books and the other a real estate CEO. BOTH will influence her life. I recommend this book.
