“There is a rhythm to the writing of Karen White. It has a pace, a beat, a cadence that is all its own.”—The Huffington Post
“White’s dizzying carousel of a plot keeps those pages turning, so much so that the book can [be]—and should be—finished in one afternoon, interrupted only by a glass of sweet iced tea.”—Oprah.com
“White captures the true essence of Charleston by intertwining the sights and smells of the historic town with an enchanting story filled with ghostly spirits, love, and forgiveness…a once-in-a-lifetime series.”—Fresh Fiction

f you're new to this series, definitely start at the beginning (with The House on Tradd Street) – these books all build off of each other.
The Strangers on Montagu Street, like the others in the series, is the kind of of low stress book that you just sit back and enjoy without having to think too much. And, sometimes you just need a book like this.
Strangers supplies a good dose of likable characters (mostly – I’ll get to this in a bit), romance (or romantic tension, at least), and quirkiness. It’s a bit like Southern chick lit with some Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil type ghosts thrown in.
Melanie is a bit like a modern-day, adult Nancy Drew with the power to see and communicate with ghosts. Despite her supernatural abilities, she is an extremely practical, organized, driven (and stubborn!) person in her daily life. She has a maddening way of avoiding serious issues and refusing to continue conversations that desperately need continuing or clarifying. Though this habit creates most of the romantic drama in the story (so, it’s obviously a good personality trait for the book), it really started to bother me and turned me against Melanie a bit towards the end.
Nola, Melanie’s teenage houseguest, is a great addition to the cast. Her back story adds some depth and her attitude adds spice to all the Southern gentility. Plus, this installment’s mystery revolves around an antique dollhouse that is given to Nola.
The Strangers on Montagu Street would make great summer reading.
