The House on Tradd Street by Karen White

The House on Tradd Street is a beautifully written book, but I had two problems with it. 1) The main character, Melanie Middleton was 39 years old and acted like a 29-year-old, so that was hard for me to come to terms with, even though it was mentioned in nearly every chapter (this last bit was a minor issue), and 2) The main character acted like a very immature 29-year-old 90% of the time. However, Karen White does do a fantastic job of incorporating the supernatural in a way that is not at all cheesy and very believable, and she is able to make the threads of the supernatural twine beautifully with the mystery surrounding Melanie’s newly inherited old house and her multiple (un)love interests.

Karen White is one of my favorite authors, and I cannot wait to read the next installment in the Melanie Middleton series, The Girl on Legare, which I believe will focus on Melanie’s relationship with her mother (The House on Tradd focused on her broken relationship with her father), and her dead grandmother, who lived in the house on Legare.
