The Girl on Legare Street is by Karen White. The second book in the Tradd House series. Melanie's long estranged mother has decided to move back to Charleston and buy the old family house she sold thirty years ago when she deserted Melanie and her father for a career in the opera. Of course, the family house is haunted and Melanie, Jack, and her friends must uncover an ancient family secret to pacify the family ghosts. Melanie's problems with Jack and an old flame, and her issues with her parents make things even more problematic. This series is a nice blend of Southern mystery and ghost story.
