The House on Tradd Street

Tradd Series, #1

I loved this book. The House on Tradd Street had lots of suspense and drama along with the paranormal. You almost want to read this title all in one sitting as it is hard to put down.

Melanie Middleton has been able to see spirits her whole life and has tried to keep that knowledge. She finds herself inheriting an old mansion and its ghosts. Now can she find the strength to help these spirits find some peace while fixing up the old mansion? Or will she let her old fears overwhelm her and keep her from finding peace herself?

Can she find forgiveness in her heart for a mother who abandoned her as a child, and understanding? It is hard when a parent abandons a child and the child doesn't understand why. I think it is very hard to forgive the parent and hopefully Melanie can find it in her heart to understand and come to have a relationship with her mother.

The House on Tradd Street is another thrill ride. I had a hard time putting it down once I started. I hope to see many more books from this author. Both of Karen White’s books, Legare and Tradd are winners in my book!!
