Return to Tradd Stree by Karen White

Facing her future as a single mother, psychic Realtor Melanie Middleton is determined to be strong and leave her past with writer Jack Trenholm behind her. But history has a tendency of catching up with Melanie, whether she likes it or not.…
Melanie is only going through the motions of living since refusing Jack’s marriage proposal. She misses him desperately, but her broken heart is the least of her problems. Despite an insistence that she can raise their child alone, Melanie is completely unprepared for motherhood, and she struggles to complete renovations on her house on Tradd Street before the baby arrives.
When Melanie is roused one night by the sound of a ghostly infant crying, she chooses to ignore it. She simply does not have the energy to deal with one more crisis. That is, until the remains of a newborn buried in an old christening gown are found hidden in the foundation of her house.
As the hauntings on Tradd Street slowly become more violent, Melanie decides to find out what caused the baby’s untimely death, uncovering the love, loss, and betrayal that color the house’s history—and threaten her claim of ownership. But can she seek Jack’s help without risking her heart? For in revealing the secrets of the past, Melanie also awakens the malevolent presence that has tried to keep the truth hidden for decades.…


Once again, Melanie is being haunted by former residents of the Tradd Street house she inherited. To make matters worse, her relationship with Jack has imploded, she’s pregnant, and now someone is claiming that the house she loves isn’t really hers at all.
I have read the previous books in the Tradd Street Series and adored them; however, Return to Tradd Street was painful to read. I ended up skipping over some of it.
Melanie crawled under my skin like a bad rash. In this book, she was annoying with her constant need to defy Jack. I mean seriously, why fight with someone over staying hydrated. Just drink the bloody water the man’s offering.
Overall, I cringe just thinking about this book. It was that bad.
