The Christmas spirit is overtaking Tradd Street with a vengeance in this festive new novel in the New York Timesbestselling series by Karen White.
Melanie Trenholm should be anticipating Christmas with nothing but joy–after all, it’s only the second Christmas she and her husband, Jack, will celebrate with their twin babies. But the ongoing excavation of the centuries-old cistern in the garden of her historic Tradd Street home has been a huge millstone, both financially and aesthetically. Local students are thrilled by the possibility of unearthing more Colonial-era artifacts at the cistern, but Melanie is concerned by the ghosts connected to the cistern that have suddenly invaded her life and her house–and at least one of them is definitely not filled with holiday cheer….
And these relics aren’t the only precious artifacts for which people are searching. A past adversary is convinced that there is a long-lost Revolutionary War treasure buried somewhere on the property that Melanie inherited–untold riches rumored to be brought over from France by the Marquis de Lafayette himself and intended to help the Colonial war effort. It’s a treasure literally fit for a king, and there have been whispers throughout history that many have already killed–and died–for it. And now someone will stop at nothing to possess it–even if it means destroying everything Melanie and Jack hold dear.
I love the Tradd Street Series by Karen White and this book was no exception.
This is a read you will need to pay a little more attention to if you expect to understand the ending; who the ghosts are, their relationship and what they are trying to accomplish. That is the main reason I gave “The Christmas Spirits on Tradd Street” four stars. I still loved the book and it’s characters.
I understand we can look forward to one more book in this series. I am not sure when the projected release date is but, I will be looking forward to it with mixed feelings because I would like the series to continue on for many more installments.
If you love Karen White and have read the Tradd Street series, you won’t want to miss this one. If you haven’t started this series, what are you waiting for?
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
