The Christmas spirit is overtaking Tradd Street with a vengeance in this festive new novel in the New York Times bestselling series by Karen White.

Melanie Trenholm should be anticipating Christmas with nothing but joy--after all, it's only the second Christmas she and her husband, Jack, will celebrate with their twin toddlers. But the ongoing excavation of the centuries-old cistern in the garden of her historic Tradd Street home has been a huge millstone, both financially and aesthetically. Local students are thrilled by the possibility of unearthing more Colonial-era artifacts at the cistern, but Melanie is concerned by the ghosts connected to it that have suddenly invaded her life and her house--and at least one of them is definitely not filled with holiday cheer....

And these relics aren't the only precious artifacts for which people are searching. A past adversary is convinced there is a long-lost Revolutionary War treasure buried somewhere on the property Melanie inherited--untold riches rumored to have been brought over from France by the Marquis de Lafayette himself and intended to help the Colonial war effort. It's a treasure literally fit for a king, and there have been whispers throughout history that many have already killed--and died--for it. And now someone will stop at nothing to possess it--even if it means destroying everything Melanie and Jack hold dear.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Melanie Trenholm is Charleston's only real estate agent who can communicate with ghosts, a talent that is useful when selling historic homes. This time, the ghosts are in Melanie's Tradd Street home, disturbed by the excavation of an eighteenth-century cistern in her backyard. As she delves deeper into the ghosts' stories, she realizes that they are connected to a Revolutionary War-era spy ring that operated out of the plantation owned by her greedy and unpleasant rival, Marc Longo. On top of that, Melanie is hosting a stop at a progressive dinner with strict rules for decor, someone is sabotaging her husband's career, and she's sorting out her feelings about her newfound sister, who is also her nanny. Fortunately, Melanie has a sprawling cast of supportive friends (and the occasional frenemy) to help her survive the holidays. White draws from a variety of genres, including paranormal fiction, women's fiction, romance, and mystery. Series fans will enjoy spending the holidays with Melanie Trenholm. The plot threads move pieces of this long-running saga forward, and the ending suggests that there's more to come.--Nanette Donohue Copyright 2010 Booklist"
