"New York Times bestselling author Karen White invites you to explore the brick-walked streets of Charleston, where historic mansions house the memories of years gone by and restless spirits refuse to fade away.... With her extended maternity leave at its end, Melanie Trenholm is less than thrilled to leave her new husband and beautiful twins to return to work, especially when she's awakened by a phone call with no voice on the other end--and the uneasy feeling that the ghostly apparitions that have stayed silent for more than a year are about to invade her life once more. But her return to the realty office goes better than she could have hoped, with a new client eager to sell the home she recently inherited on South Battery. Most would treasure living in one of the grandest old homes in the famous historic district of Charleston, but Jayne Smith would rather sell it as soon as possible, guaranteeing Melanie a quick commission. Despite her stroke of luck, Melanie can't deny that spirits--both malevolent and benign--have started to appear to her again. One is shrouded from sight, appearing whenever Jayne is near. Another arrives when an old cistern is discovered in her backyard on Tradd Street. Melanie knows nothing good can come from unearthing the past. But some secrets refuse to stay buried..."-- Provided by publisher.

Melanie & Jack return in this the fifth book in the Tradd Street series. It's funny, witty, mystical, mysterious, charming, historical, and chocked full of surprises and secrets. I could not put it down!

I absolutely loved this book. This is the first book I've read by this author so I'm not able to make any comparisons to her other books. I normally don't go in for stories with ghosts but the description peaked my interest and I'm so glad I read it. For me it was a very enjoyable read and I'll be picking up more books by this author.

I really enjoyed this book. It was fun to follow the characters with all the mishaps that they were going through. It seemed so natural to accept that old houses would have otherwordly residents who have unresolved issues. I read it on a rainy afternoon, in my warm living room where I settled with my cup of tea and this delightful book.

I forced myself to keep reading to see if it got any stupider and I wasn't disappointed.

Having read all the books in the series, I was very disappointed in this one. It's spent very little time on ghosts and all the houses as they usually do. Most of the focus was on the main character, her weight, and her worries and insecurities. Just really disappointed since Karen White is one of my favorite authors.
