The Girl on Legare Street is the second book in a series by Karen White to feature Melanie, a realtor living in South Carolina who can see ghosts. The series began with The House on Tradd Street however this one can be read as a stand-alone.
Melanie is now restoring her historic (and inherited) home on Tradd Street with friends, when she is asked to purchase a home for her estranged mother. Melanie hasn't spoken to her mother since the opera singer left her as a child and the animosity is palpable.
One small thing that did irk me though, was the number of times the characters raised their eyebrows, or moved their eyebrows in the book. I read the e-book version so was able to do a search and it was an astonishing 47 times, argh!
That aside, when I wasn't reading it, I couldn't wait to pick it up again which means a high rating for me. I highly recommend The Girl on Legare Street for readers who enjoy a plot driven novel with great characters, historic restoration and a little ghost hunting.
My rating = ****
P.S. There are two more in the series, and I might just check them out: The Strangers on Montagu Street and Return to Tradd Street.
