Believable Paranormal Ghostly Story

Despite what some various reviews have said, I enjoyed this novel just as much as the first one. Yes, the the female protagonist is prissy, yes, there is predictability but it still was fun to see how the mystery unravelled and yes, I guessed at a few additional plot twists.

BUT, reflecting back on it I really am amazed at how well Karen White made me suspend reality to think the ghosts and psychic abilities of several characters exist. So much so, I expect the ghosts to materialize.

As I said about the The House on Tradd Street, I like the narrator. She keeps the characters clear enough to distinquish and her characterization of Melanie fits! I feel like I am back home again with the somewhat exaggerated accents.

If you are interested in the book I recommend you read Tradd Street first because it lays the groundwork for the characters although I think Legare Street will stand alone ok.

If you're not especially picky, I think the story is light-hearted reading and fun. Go for it!

disappointing

The House on Tradd Street led me to believe this book would either be as good or better. I found myself really disliking our heroine but liking the folks around her. I don't care to read or listen to books where the main character does not grow or become likeable.
