Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed author Karen White returns with the sequel to the national bestseller The House on Tradd Street.

Melanie has grown accustomed to renovating old houses, but she never imagined she?d have to renovate her own life to include her estranged mother. Ginnette Prioleau Middleton left Charleston thirty-five years ago. She?s returned wanting to protect the daughter she?s never really known after receiving an ominous premonition.

Melanie never wanted to see her mother again, but with some prodding from her partner, Jack Trenholm, she agrees?and begins to rebuild their relationship. Together Melanie and Ginnette buy back their old home. With their combined psychic abilities they expect to unearth some ghosts. But what they find is a vengeful dark spirit whose strength has been growing for decades. It will take unearthing long buried secrets to beat this demon and save what?s left of Melanie?s family?

Review:

"In White's less than exciting sequel to The House on Tradd Street, Melanie Middleton reprises her role as the Lowcountry realtor with psychic powers. This time out, she's enlisted to help her estranged mother, opera star Ginnette Prioleau Middleton, buy back her family's ancestral home. Ginnette fears Melanie's in danger from a supernatural force, and she plans to keep her daughter close, even though Melanie's long since written Ginnette off. Meanwhile, local hunk author Jack Trenholm again offers his investigative services to determine and neutralize the threat, and a nosy local reporter is intent on writing a story about Ginnette's return. Jack's attempts at intimacy with Melanie are generally rebuffed, and their 'relationship' comes off as annoying background noise compared to the better-handled relationship between Melanie and Ginnette. It doesn't help that the ghostly doings develop at an excruciatingly slow pace, and the reporter's role (of course much more important than it first appears) takes too long to gel. Hopefully, White's next installment will regain the snap of her first outing." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

I really liked everything about this book. It had it all - romance, suspense, ghosts...It's the 2nd in the series and, in my opinion, you really need to read "The House on Tradd Street" first to make it all work. The heroine can be a bit obnoxious at times, but she's very realistic, and hey, I think all of us have a little obnoxious in us! I'm extremely anxious for the 3rd book to come out, but I have a long wait - according to Kate White's website, it's not slated to be released until later this year (2011!) or possibly even next year :-(

Good light read, but not as good as the House on Tradd Street. Maybe I shouldn't have read them back to back. This book, I don't think, could stand on it's own. There is too much background in the first book that you need for the second one. The ending for me was a little of a let down. I thought it would be more complicated.
