Comments The Strangers on Montagu Street

  • Julie

    The Strangers on Montagu Street by Karen White is a 2011 NAL publication. It’s hard to believe I had never read anything by this author until recently, when I checked out “The House on Tradd Street” from the library. I was instantly hooked, and have fallen in love with all the characters, paranormal mysteries, and romance in Charleston. In this third chapter of the four- part series, Jack learns he is the father a thirteen- year old daughter whose mother just died, making him a single pare [...]

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE This book. Who am I kidding, I LOVE this series. I haven't read any other books by Karen White but I'm totally enamored with the characters from these series of books. I've always loved Jack. I mean who wouldn't with his charm and good looks. Melanie is a little OCD and she just reminds me of me sometimes with all her little quirks. Her emotional baggage isn't overbearing in any of the books but it enhances the story and I love it. I love Ginnette and Melanie's Father as well as [...]

  • Kelsey Wood Bezaire

    Melanie is too hate-able for me to care what happens to her through the book. The drama is put on herself because she's a prudish control freak in denial of everything unpleasant- so there's no "why should I care" when reading it. Nola and Jack are the saving graces as well as the developing mystery. The end deflates like a bad balloon though; the mystery is anti climatic and requires the cop-out of a ghost calling and explaining the details. (Something I'd only expect to see in a bad TV series, [...]

    So the ghost story part was great and I even liked the addition of Nola the teenage daughter Jack never knew about. My problem is the handling of Mellie and Jack's relationship. Why can't they just sit down and talk it out like adults? It seems every time they start to talk something interrupts them just so it can drag out some more. I think that we could still be solving a different ghost story each time without all this relationship torture to add to suspense.

    Read in 2014, but I listened this time. The audio was excellent I highly recommend it.Story - Character's lives 5, Mystery 4, narration 5I loved this one, the personal part of the series really went up a notch. Jack having a 13 year old daughter he had no knowledge of, seeing how Mellie stepped up and Jack found his way was great. I think my favorite character not named Jack/Mellie is Nola. She is excellent, she'd have been the cool kid in school but with a giving heart. The mystery this time wa [...]

  • Donna

    I'll go with 4 stars even though I can't say I "really" liked this. But I did "really" like some of it starting with the haunted dollhouse. That was creatively thought out and I was pulled into the drama that was created with that. I also liked the addition of Nola, a young teen who turns out to be Jack's daughter. Melanie's mother was also still around in this installment. She was kind of fun. So, this book was a quick and easy read that was enjoyable. I liked the humor that was added to this a [...]

  • Nicole

    I have been anxiously awaiting the latest story about Melanie and Jack and I was certainly not disappointed in this one! At the end of the last story we left as Jack was introduced to his daughter Nola. In Strangers, Nola ends up staying with Melanie and of course, trouble with the not so recently departed make things interesting. In addition, things begin to progress between Melanie and Jack's relationshipever trust issues threaten their budding romance. The only fault that I can find with this [...]

  • Elaine

    Not as good as the first two. I am getting tired of whiny Mellie. She is 40 years old! Grow up already.

  • Mary

    I really like these characters, the sense of humor and the spooky goings-on. This was another goodie!

    The past has a way of inserting itself into psychic Melanie Middleton's life. Living in Charleston and being a realtor of historical homes has placed her in the catbird's seat in terms of meeting up with many entities that are unsettled and seeking some kind of closure. Enter Jack Trenholm: dark, handsome and brooding, but a man who has worked with her in solving mysteries, and you find another kind of unrest.When Jack shows up on her doorstep asking a favor, Melanie is totally unprepared for hi [...]

    It's 5:15 a.m. and the phone and doorbell are ringing in Melanie's home. While she's used to seeing and hearing voices of dead spirits at all times of the day, she doesn't like the messages she's hearing about listening to her heart. So far she's been guarding her heart quite fiercely, thank you very much. So how surprised is she when Jack, her ex-boyfriend and whom she secretly yearns, is at the door, asking her to house his daughter who has trekked her way to his door after her mother died. Ja [...]

  • Heather Turiello

    I can't help but love Melanie! She's quirky and odd, but has a lovely innocence and is truly a kind soul. I like the character development that has taken place in this third book in this series, but I was a little disappointed with the ending leaving so much unfinished. This series has a nostalgic feel that is similar to the TV series Cold Case, revealing the unfinished, unresolved nature of each person's story. Melanie, as polished as her personality is on the outside, is a very emotionally imm [...]

  • Maggie Boyd

    Jack's daughter has just arrived and is not getting along with her newly found dad. Enter Mellie, who agrees to let Nola move in with her. Well, technically her mother, since the house on Tradd street is being renovated. In celebration of Nola moving in her paternal grandmother gives her a dollhouse, which turns out to be haunted. Mellie deals with the malevolent spirits attached to the house as well as the benign one following Nola about. Everything seems to be going well until well, suddenly t [...]

  • Angie

    Another great book in the Tradd Street series! I love these books! The plot thickens in this entry as Jack's long lost daughter comes to stay with Melanie. A gothic dollhouse, mean spirits, and an elderly piano teacher also create chaos & confusion. Will Melanie & Ginette be able to unravel the mystery and settle the ghosts that are haunting them? Read to find out!

  • Linda

    I am a first time reader of Karen White but NOW a fan. I loved the book. I tried to finish it in one reading but could not. The characters are interesting and believable.

  • Martha

    I really want to read this one. Have read the first in the series and enjoyed it very much!

  • Lori

    I love Karen White especially this series!!! Fun, easy reads that just make you feel good love the characters and all the southern charm of Charleston!!!

  • Rosario

    Melanie must be the stupidest heroine out there.

  • Carolyn

    I love this series by Karen White. I cannot wait for the next installment to come out, hopefully we don't have to wait another 2 years for the conclusion of Mellie and Jack.

  • Jess

    Working my way through my binge reread for book five!!

  • Stephanie

    I loved it. Cannot wait for #4.

  • Aarann

    So I was pretty irritated with the characters (especially the supporting characters) in House on Tradd Street and The Girl on Lagare Street. I thought Sophie, Ginette, Jack and ESPECIALLY Rebecca were annoying and overly pushy and although I understand that a stubborn, controlling personality like Melanie needs to be pushed into doing anything that will roll the plot along, the people masquerading as her friends and family, assumed an awful lot. Then, Melanie herself began to get on my nerves fo [...]

  • Julie

    Best one in the series yet. Would have given it four stars except the soap operaish ending really irritated me. Ready for the next one!

  • Misty Vauble

    Favorite of series so far

  • Colleen Turner

    I reviewed this book for luxuryreadingMelanie “Mellie” Middleton is a very particular person: she keeps her life organized on spreadsheets – from her job selling historic homes in Charleston, South Carolina to her shoe and clothes collections – and likes as few surprises as possible. Lately, however, her life seems to have other plans and curve balls keep coming from everywhere. Her own historic home continues to need serious TLC and the costs keep mounting. Her mother, who left her and [...]

    Even factoring in that Tradd Street is Karen White's "trashy" series, it doesn't excuse the overwhelming want of an editor. The inconsistencies alone (even within just the first book) could take up several pages, but it's not even the most appalling aspect of the books. Don't get me wrong, her supernatural mysteries are compelling--but they are incredibly easy to pick apart and solve, several chapters before the supposed quick-witted Jack and Mellie put two and two together. Not only are they ob [...]

  • Kristen

    I liked this third in the series of books about the southern haunted houses and still find charm in the stories Karen White tells. Melanie Middleton is dealing with multiple things, as she always is, and usually that's how she likes it. Except now the things on her plate are more personal than she likes, particularly in being forced to face her feelings for Jack Trenholme.When Jack suddenly discovers he has a teenage daughter who shows up after the death of her mother, he asks Melanie to take he [...]

  • Justine

    I read the first two books of this series in early college and I picked up the third book because I needed something light to read. In doing so, I realized that either my tastes have since changed or White's writing has become very stale. Since I haven’t read the first two in a few years, I don’t know which of those scenarios is the case. Although this book definitely had some entertaining moments, the characters are annoyingly flat and immature (particularly the main character, Melanie, who [...]

  • Suzanne

    I am a huge fan of Karen White's novels, and the "House on Tradd Street" series is one of of my favorites! In "The Strangers on Montagu Street," Melanie is about to move in with her mother at the house on Legare Street while a foundational repair is being made to her house on Tradd Street. She turning 40, and contemplating the direction of her life, when Jack shows up on her doorstep, asking for her help in taking care of his teenage daughter, Emmaline, who everyone calls Nola. Jack is still ree [...]
