    " For some reason I can't resist books about historical, slightly paranormal, mysteries, set in Charleston in big old mansions. I really liked the first Karen White book I read, On Folly Beach and enjoyed this one just as much. Melanie Middleton and I share a love of spreadsheets that's very real and very deep. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Reca | 1/12/2014

    " The setting of this book is in Charleston where a woman (Melanie, who can see ghosts) inherits an old Charleston home from an old man that she barely knows. Or so she thinks. This book is a ghost story that is all about unraveling a mystery dating back to the Civil War AND the truth about what happened to the old man's mother. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to more in what is to become a series featuring Melanie. "
