Publisher's Summary

The Christmas spirit is overtaking Tradd Street with a vengeance in this festive new novel in the New York Times best-selling 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 toddlers. 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 it 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 there is a long-lost Revolutionary War treasure buried somewhere on the property Melanie inherited - untold riches rumored to have been 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.

Don't know exactly how to put this

Has Mellie become sillier & sillier? I had understood her before, and she had seemed to grow with her previous mistakes, but seems to have regressed to adolescence in this book. It was a disappointment this time. Maybe next time she will grow better.

Whinny, whinging and ?

I liked the first few books of the series. I have no problem with the main character, Mel having OCD. I have a problem with her lack of growth over time. Her sister is her nanny and her father is her gardener. She has a housekeeper who cooks. Yet Mel is jealous, self centered and secretive. The narrator captures the whine. It's hard to like a book when the protagonist is unlikeable.

Another Great Tradd Street Story.

Okay Ms. White, You need to jump on it and write another one. Warning to other readers- this MIGHT be a spoiler. I did not see this ending coming. I like the fact that Mellie chilled out a little from the last story. There wasn't that much paranormal, but I wanted to punch March Longo in the throat.

This was a great continuation of the Tradd Street series The middle part of the story seemed to drag out just a little more than normal and most of the excitement happened toward the end. Tradd Street definitely CANNOT stop here. I am looking forward to more stories.

I am going to have to go back and reread the previous stories because I can't remember off the top of my head when Mellie's sister popped into the picture. I think is a lot more than can be done with these two sisters on the watch.

This is definitely a series to read if you like southern charm and paranormal fiction. I am going to start back from the very beginning and reread the whole series again. Well done. This series cannot stop here. Hurry up! I want more! :)

Loved the ending.

After reading some of the previous reviews. I was skeptical about this book. But I am so glad I decided to form my own opinion. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Made me proud to be able to solve the mystery using all the clues. Laughed, cried and smiled while reading it. Not a fairy tale ending but a wonderful way to begin the next book in this series. Can’t wait...please hurry⚜️⚜️

I tried. I really tried to like it.

I love the Tradd Street Series but this book annoyed the heck out of me. So many things...So here we go. I typically like the narrator but this book made her seem like she was really, really try to do an Antebellum Southern accent. I'm from Charleston and we don't talk like that. Come on. Melanie is pretty annoying. She's jealous, petty and childish and I don't get what's happening with her in this book. She and Jack have this ridiculous sexy banter which gets to be too much. We get it, you guys want each other. Then, the ending is so ridiculous. Ridiculous to the point that he runs away from his kids and wife for something stupid, and Melanie's mother basically tells her she needs to win Jack over by looking nice and wearing heels. Really? And no one lets her eat cookies? Why? Because southern women have to be thin and put together in order to be respected? Listen, I get the want to explain that the sweet grandeur and tradition of the south remains in Charleston, but I believe this attempt has turned Melanie into a sad cliche and her and Jack's relationship is some sad vampire YA novel relationship. I really hate to write this review because I love Karen White, and I have been on a low carb-diet so I'm kind of annoyed at everything right now - but I just seriously hope the next book is better.

Love this Author and this series but....

I really love the Tradd Street series and enjoy this story as well but the narrator just isn't doing it for me, her voice sounds like an old lady. Just not a fan.

Another great story in this series.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book being read. The narrator does an awesome job with the characters. My only complaint, and the reason I’m giving it only three stars, is because I think Melanie‘s character should be strong enough to be able to say that she isn’t always at fault like everybody blames her for. Jack never told her the truth either, a point that’s omitted towards the end. Also, at least for me, I realized earlier on, that Anthony was not a trustworthy character. I guess it was a bit of foreshadowing but easy to pick up on and sort made the Melanie and Jane’s characters look a little less than intelligent. But over all, it’s another great book and left me wanting to hear more of the story!! So I hope there’s another book in the series coming out soon! :-)

Fabulous Till The End

Wonderful as always but I hated the ending! Left us hanging for the next book!! They don’t come fast enough to leave us with this cliffhanger! Bummed out at the end. Sort of ruined the whole story..
