Review: The Impossible Girl by Lydia Kang

This was a book that I was excited about when I got the pitch and then I kind of forgot about it until closer to the review date. I wasn’t entirely excited to read it when the time came to start it, but that slight was rectified almost immediately when I started this one.

This book had a little bit of everything, romance, mystery, fantasy, and history. I loved this one almost from the first word! It made an excellent early fall/Halloween read.

Manhattan, 1850. Born out of wedlock to a wealthy socialite and a nameless immigrant, Cora Lee can mingle with the rich just as easily as she can slip unnoticed into the slums and graveyards of the city. As the only female resurrectionist in New York, she’s carved out a niche procuring bodies afflicted with the strangest of anomalies. Anatomists will pay exorbitant sums for such specimens—dissecting and displaying them for the eager public. Continue reading “Review: The Impossible Girl by Lydia Kang”

Special Feature: GUESTS ON SOUTH BATTERY by Karen White

The Tadd Street books have been on my TBR list for what seems like forever. It’s just not a series that I think about when I am looking for a new mystery to read, however after reading the summary for this book, I went out and bought the first one in the series and plan on reading it in Oct for my mystery month!

I wanted so badly to read this book when it came across my desk for review, however I didn’t want to spoil anything so I opted to feature it on my blog since I know so many of my readers rave about this series.

My guess is that I will catch up quickly in this series but for those of you who have been eagerly awaiting the next Tadd Street book, you needn’t wait any longer!!

Karen White invites you to explore the brick-walked streets of Charleston in her fifth Tradd Street novel, where historic mansions house the memories of years gone by, and restless spirits refuse to fade away…

With her extended maternity leave at its end, Melanie Trenholm is less than thrilled to leave her new husband and beautiful twins to return to work, especially when she’s awoken by a phone call with no voice on the other end—and the uneasy feeling that the ghostly apparitions that have stayed silent for more than a year are about to invade her life once more.

Giveaway: THE GUESTS ON SOUTH BATTERY by Karen White

Can I just start off by saying that I love Karen White’s books. She writes beautifully and I have had the Tadd Street books on my TBR for way way way too long. I didn’t want to start this series mid way but I did opt to do a giveaway since I know so many of my readers LOVE this series.

Karen White invites you to explore the brick-walked streets of Charleston in her fifth Tradd Street novel, where historic mansions house the memories of years gone by, and restless spirits refuse to fade away…

With her extended maternity leave at its end, Melanie Trenholm is less than thrilled to leave her new husband and beautiful twins to return to work, especially when she’s awoken by a phone call with no voice on the other end—and the uneasy feeling that the ghostly apparitions that have stayed silent for more than a year are about to invade her life once more.

But her return to the realty office goes better than she could have hoped, with a new client eager to sell the home she recently inherited on South Battery. Most would treasure living in one of the grandest old homes in the famous historic district of Charleston, but Jayne Smith would rather sell hers as soon as possible, guaranteeing Melanie a quick commission.

Despite her stroke of luck, Melanie can’t deny that spirits—both malevolent and benign—have started to show themselves to her again. One is shrouded from sight, but appears whenever Jayne is near. Another arrives when an old cistern is discovered in Melanie’s backyard on Tradd Street.

Melanie knows nothing good can come from unearthing the past. But some secrets refuse to stay buried.
