    Return to Tradd Street by Karen White is a 2014 NAL publication As they say, All good things must come to an end , and so with a heavy heart, I started the last book in the four part Tradd Street series I predicted, in a review of a previous book in this series, that Melanie might never regain the control of her very orderly, planned right down to the last detail, organized life again, but I never would have imagined things turning out quite like this Personally, I recommend reading this ser Return to Tradd Street by Karen White is a 2014 NAL publication As they say, All good things must come to an end , and so with a heavy heart, I started the last book in the four part Tradd Street series I predicted, in a review of a previous book in this series, that Melanie might never regain the control of her very orderly, planned right down to the last detail, organized life again, but I never would have imagined things turning out quite like this Personally, I recommend reading this series in order to truly appreciate the character growth and understand how Melanie first came to own the house on Tradd Street, how she met Jack, the reason she loves ABBA, and has OCD tendencies, and of course her inherited psychic gifts Melanie is forty years old, pregnant, and unmarried She and Jack had a falling out, but when she informed him she was expecting his baby, naturally he did the honorable thing and proposed marriage However, Melanie refuses him, with good reason, but her heart is broken into little pieces Exhausted and emotionally drained, Melanie has no patience for ghosts, but when the bones of a baby are found on her property, she is oncemired in an ancient mystery, while coping with a frenzy of media attention, and a shocking announcement from her doctor regarding her pregnancy I had never read a novel by Karen White until I started this series, and had no idea what to expect, but I have to confess I never would have thought I d be this pleased with the series I love ghost stories, romance, humor and stories set in southern locations, so I suppose all those elements combined in one story easily won me over This last installment gives the series a solid send off as we follow along with Melanie s pregnancy, her ups and downs with Jack, her run ins with Rebecca, while revealing a tense historical tale that will reveal horrible truths, but set the record straight once and for all I loved the way the story ended, which was simply lovely, and I have to say I was very proud of Melanie and how far she has come since first meeting her, and it s nice to know she is truly happy now I am so thankful I found this series and will seek out any other books by this author I can find

    It is such a disappointment when female authors choose to make their female leads weak Mellie is a strong, confident, capable single woman But she is reduced to whining, being insecure about her looks and obsessed with food She had a very difficult upbringing and that is plently of explanation as to why she did not accept Jack s marriage proposal, turning her so weak is an insult to her and those of us that have waited a very long time for our happy ending.Sadly, it was a disappointing ending It is such a disappointment when female authors choose to make their female leads weak Mellie is a strong, confident, capable single woman But she is reduced to whining, being insecure about her looks and obsessed with food She had a very difficult upbringing and that is plently of explanation as to why she did not accept Jack s marriage proposal, turning her so weak is an insult to her and those of us that have waited a very long time for our happy ending.Sadly, it was a disappointing ending The Gilbert s mystery was the most interesting part of the story and yet the conclusion of their part was too rushed and lacked truth I feel as though Karen White only wrote this book for the many people who love Mellie and Jack And that she is not among us Mellie was the same character from the first book, never having learned anything about the people she loves nor about herself

    I love mysteries about spirits instead of crimes and Karen White also gives us a 40 year old heroine I love Melanie, Ginnette Prioleau, and this realistically rounded out cast These wonderful spirit and treasure adventures, just right for my age, all received five stars Melanie and Ginnette handle spirits needs and Jack and librarian, Yvonne, sift out pertinent Charleston history The houses that each story features, supply clues and communication The two facets I disliked were disregarded I love mysteries about spirits instead of crimes and Karen White also gives us a 40 year old heroine I love Melanie, Ginnette Prioleau, and this realistically rounded out cast These wonderful spirit and treasure adventures, just right for my age, all received five stars Melanie and Ginnette handle spirits needs and Jack and librarian, Yvonne, sift out pertinent Charleston history The houses that each story features, supply clues and communication The two facets I disliked were disregarded and did not dampen the joy of these adventures Jack has never romanced Melanie and proposed after she announced her pregnancy I could not accept such a proposal either and hated seeing characters and readers fault anyone but Jack It also goes over the top to deny anyone the pleasure of favourite foods Melanie loves goodies like a normal person and her circle should not overstep an adult s snacking choices Return To Tradd Street marked in 2014, the much wanted reprisal of a treasured series that had paused Melanie, Jack, and her parents settle their relationships and babies are born into their loving fold Nola is a great Sister and stepdaughter and is making money as a songwriter, like her Mom The mystery almost did not matter but Mothers and children make poignant stories Charleston is always described for me, here in Canada, beautifully I breeze through each novel when I permit myself the luxury of reading one, just stopping to sleep and eat I am moved and enlightened by an apt quote by Ginnette, on page 208If you wait until everything s perfect, your differences have been settled, and the stars align, you miss your chance at happiness Real and enduring love is being able to see past disagreements, so what s left is the knowledge that you aren t complete without the other person.

    I feel like a lot of the story was fast forwarded one chapter was before Christmas, and then the next was February I guess that was to span Melanie s whole pregnancy, but it just felt like we were missing parts of the story.Still liked it, will definitely keep going with the books, but it was probably my least favorite book in the series so far.

    So fun From the very first page I knew this was gonna be a great read It s unique, fun, and a little bit quirky, but that s what s great about it.Definitely not your run of the mill mystery because this one includes ghosts and people that can see ghosts and hear them Talk to them and feel them It also includes some wacky family members, a crazy relationship of sorts Oh, and a pregnancy that was a little unexpected that brings out some interesting problems.I have a love hate relatio So fun From the very first page I knew this was gonna be a great read It s unique, fun, and a little bit quirky, but that s what s great about it.Definitely not your run of the mill mystery because this one includes ghosts and people that can see ghosts and hear them Talk to them and feel them It also includes some wacky family members, a crazy relationship of sorts Oh, and a pregnancy that was a little unexpected that brings out some interesting problems.I have a love hate relationship with Jack myself So I can understand what know when he was feeling He tends to be a little overbearing and makes a lot of assumptions and that kind of makes me crazy But towards the end of the book, I definitely warmed up Jack He is a sweetie and definitely someone you want to get to know.The author did a fabulous job with this story A sweet southern story that brings you the charm of the city, spooky mystery, and a lasting romance that satisfies.Even though it s part of a series I really didn t feel too lost She s great at doing some backstory fill in and created a interesting and captivating story that I couldn t put down Even my husband asked what I was reading that had me ignoring him LOLcopy received for review considerationfull review

    As if I could rate this series any less Probably my least favorite of the series so far, just because I wanted Melanie and Jack to solve their issues already , but still such a fun mystery and plot, filled with ghosts as I ve come to know and love from this series.This time Melanie hears the cries of a baby, but there s no one in her home As always, Jack and Melanie come together to solve the mystery and she and her mother find out what dark presence exists so they can find rest.

    A fun, quirky read with quick wit and a fast pace that kept me intrigued throughout I quickly became attached to the characters right along with each of their bizarre and funny idiosyncrasies Melanie our main character is pregnant and has just turned down a marriage proposal from Jack, the father She is a head strong gal who thinks he is just asking because of the baby He on the other hand is in love with her and is hoping she will reconsider Melanie is a psychic, her mother has the ability A fun, quirky read with quick wit and a fast pace that kept me intrigued throughout I quickly became attached to the characters right along with each of their bizarre and funny idiosyncrasies Melanie our main character is pregnant and has just turned down a marriage proposal from Jack, the father She is a head strong gal who thinks he is just asking because of the baby He on the other hand is in love with her and is hoping she will reconsider Melanie is a psychic, her mother has the ability to tell the history surrounding objects and they both can see ghosts The people of Charlotte, NC have their suspisions and there is plenty of gossip, but Melanies family knows how to keep their secrets The backdrop for this ghostly story is her inherited historical mansion on Tradd St., of course, and during some renovations that are being done, the remains of a baby are found in the old foundation While forensics are being performed on the remains, the crying, ghost sightings and a complicated pregnancy, just about have Melanie at her wits end While she is trying to hold it all together she is also having to deal with her aggressive best friend, her shallow, impolite cousin and a wedding, not her own, that has been thrust upon her Aimee Bruneau is the perfect voice for this Southern group and has just enough sarcasm to make the dry wit hit home This series reviews get better as it goes along so I may read the one right before this one but I am looking forward to continuing on with it as the new books come out Recommend to those who like cozy ghost stories

    I won this book in a Goodreads First Reads contest.It s 4 in a series, but I thought it worked well as a stand alone book It was well written and in the vein of Janet Evanovich and Nora Roberts I was enjoying it until the end, but even along the way some things bothered me SPOILERS BELOW I m not sure it s the author s fault, but what is it with a female character constantly talking about what she s eating and feel guilty about wanting sweets in this, while pregnant I was so tired readin I won this book in a Goodreads First Reads contest.It s 4 in a series, but I thought it worked well as a stand alone book It was well written and in the vein of Janet Evanovich and Nora Roberts I was enjoying it until the end, but even along the way some things bothered me SPOILERS BELOW I m not sure it s the author s fault, but what is it with a female character constantly talking about what she s eating and feel guilty about wanting sweets in this, while pregnant I was so tired reading about Melanie struggle to resist donuts even after the babies Again,of a social flaw than the author s I just wish she d left it out I couldn t handle how clueless this supposedly intelligent woman was over Jack s love Perhaps I should read the other books I was also annoyed over her refusal to acknowledge her father s issues with the trust money She seemed like too much of a planner to be surprised by any financial issue The ending A DOUBLE wedding Who has a double wedding in real life And finally, I enjoyed the supernatural elements, mystery, and side characters But why would a ghost that could communicate with the living through SPEECH offer up some terrible riddle instead of explaining what happened All in all, this was a good book I m happy I won it and will recommend it to others, but these tropes and clich s of the female genre have got to stop The author seemed to be a better writer than that
