The House on Tradd Street

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

I am one of those weird people who likes to coordinate things. I like to have fall candles, fall nail polishes, warm cozy fall drinks and fall books to read. So I turned to Pinterest to find a good fall books to carry with me to the beach. I happened on one of Karen White's books about ghosts. I thought how perfect it would be because Halloween was coming up soon. Little did I know that it was a book about ghosts in Charleston and when I found that out I fell in love.

Let me just say, even though I say I fell in love with this book because it has ghosts and Charleston I gave it a fair chance to be horrible. But it definitely was not horrible in any way. I finished this book over the trip and before I was even half way done with it I had gone to my favorite used book store and bought the second one in the series.

Melanie is the main character who can happen to see ghosts. She inherits a house from Nevin Vanderhorst who makes her promise to find out why his mother left him when he was 8 years old. As the story goes on she becomes friend with the handsome blue eyed writer, Jack Trenholm, and together they discover what happened to Mr. Vanderhorst's mother and restore the house on Tradd Street.

I saw recently that Katie also finds good books on Pinterest. Does anybody else do that? How do you find out about hidden gems that might not be easily found?
