I wanted to love these books, but my dislike for the main character keeps getting in the way.

I wanted to love these books.....I really did. This is the third one I've read in the series, and I have ordered the next one - but it may be my last. The premise of the series is great for Southern fans of the paranormal - a psychic realtor who specialized in historic homes and "sees dead people." However, I just don't like the main character. I thought she would "grow on me" - but she hasn't. She comes across as a whiny, ungrateful, selfish and even MEAN woman. I realize that some may say it's due to her upbringing, but she has experienced little "growth" in the past three books. She rejects her gift, even though she should be learning to embrace and accept it. In this book, when she seeing the spirit of a woman with a baby come toward her with a pleading look in her eye, she turns her head and starts walking away quickly, humming a stupid ABBA tune. Meh. Come on, Karen, make us root for this woman a little bit. Frankly, I'm beginning to not care whether she is ever happy or not.
