The Girl on Legare Street

Summary: 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…


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

After finishing The House on Tradd Street, I immediately purchased The Girl on Legare Street. I wanted to see what happens next with Jack and Melanie and what other secrets Charleston is hiding. Turns out Charleston has plenty more secrets for Karen White’s next book.

What I liked:

The cover! Gorgeous 🙂

The mystery. There was lots of twists and turns Melanie’s family has many secrets 🙂

The chemistry is still there between Jack and Melanie, but if something does not happen soon between them- I may throw the next book against the wall.


What is kinda bugging me:

Melanie is smart, polished and put together in her work world. But in her personal life- she’s a mess. She even says something to this effect in the book and I completely agree.

Where I want to grab Melanie and shake her a bit till her teeth rattle is her obsession with aging. She never wears her glasses, it seems to bother her that she’s 40, and while I get that aging is a struggle for many- I wish that Melanie would not focus so much on this and focus on being the smart and confident woman that she is in her work life in her personal life.

Bottom line: I’m buying the next book because I’m eager to see what happens next. Fingers crossed that Jack and Melanie set aside some of their hang ups and admit they are totally into each other.
