    " Great example of Karen White's Southern Women's fiction! Settings and characters and a story that all draw you in and keep you reading! this book made me feel right at home, being from the South myself. I did have to read it during the daytime, because of the ghosts... A great Southern story!! "

    " Can't decide if I liked it better than the first, considering I have been awaiting the sequel for ages. I wouldnt say it was bad, but I pretty much had it figured out within 100 pages. Also this whole non romance between Jack and Melanie drive me crazy! Just get them together already. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Lea | 9/21/2013

    " Fabulous book! Takes place in the south, fun mystery with paranormal. You need to read the first book in the series though to keep up with this one. It doesn't explain the first book. "

    " The ghost story in this novel (the second in the series) is powerful and just scary enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. Wish I could say that the heroine improved upon this second acquaintance, but I still found myself more than mildly annoyed at her antics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leilani | 12/27/2010

    " Great follow-up to The House on Tradd Street. Christmas really isn't when you'd usually read a book about malignant spirits that try to kill people, and yet that's exactly what I did. "

    " More good stuff! Too much supernatural again but I wish there was a third book still in this series. I feel like things were unresolved romantically and I like a happy ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krissi | 12/7/2010

    " And a half. This one was a little bit harder to follow than Tradd Street, but still just as suspensful and easy to read. However, I did not like the ending, but I'm assuming she must have another sequel in the works. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debra | 11/8/2010

    " The ending was a little over the top but an interesting read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Becky | 11/4/2010

    " This book was just awful and I am shocked at the reviews. The main character was so obnoxious I could barely continue to listen to her ridiculous banter. "
