Welcome Back to Tradd Street!

The Guests on South Battery  by Karen White is the second Tradd book that we have featured at Writer’s Corner. Josephine reviewed the last book in the series. I will be sharing this one with you. I received no financial compensation for this review.


Melanie is looking forward to getting back to work after having twins. There is only one problem she has no nanny. Is it a problem that she has spreadsheets for all her children’s activities? A mother must keep track of her children. So as she heads to the office she learns that she has a new client Jayne. She is from Alabama and has recently inherited the Pinckney place on South Battery. Jayne wants to sell but Melanie and Sophie try to convince her otherwise. There might be a small problem of a ghost or two. This is nothing new for Melanie and her family as they have dealt with the paranormal before. Everything could change when Jack starts researching an idea for a new book.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book. Melanie’s quirks are entertaining. I did not realize that there was a paranormal element to the Tradd series. I loved how the mystery is woven around this element. The author left room for a couple more mysteries to take place yet. So readers have something to look forward to in the following Tradd Street books.

Charleston South Carolina is a beautiful city! I had the opportunity to visit once. It is a city that is worth visiting again and again.

Karen White’s next book When the night the lights go out is available for preorder. As always you can keep up with her on Facebook and Twitter.  You can also preorder at FoxTale book shoppe for the launch.
