New American Library is thrilled to publish “Return to Tradd Street” by New York Times Bestselling author Karen White (NAL Trade Paperback Original; Jan.7; $15; ISBN: 9780451240590), the fourth and final book in White’s national bestselling Tradd Street series featuring fan favorites Melanie Middleton and Jack Trenholm.
Karen White is the author of 16 previous books and last summer, her first hardcover “The Time Between” became a New York Times bestseller, garnering national media attention from all over the country and transitioning White from a “casual writer to a dedicated artist”(Huffington Post). This January marks the ending of an era; the epic finale of her beloved Tradd Street series, which made White a rising southern star, and that readers have been waiting to read for more than six years.
The Tradd Street series is set in Charleston, and New York Times bestselling author Karen White will be having events in the area this January:
• Saturday, Jan. 11, 3 p.m. at Mount Pleasant Barnes and Noble, 1716 Towne Centre Way.
• Monday, Jan. 13, 4 p.m. at Blue Bicycle, 420 King St.
In “Return to Tradd Street,” realtor Melanie Middleton is at a crossroads — she’s pregnant with Jack Treholm’s baby, but refuses to marry him simply because of the baby. Melanie’s emotional life is in turmoil and the last thing she wants or needs is more ghostly visitations, but she can’t ignore the sounds of a baby crying in the night. Her suspicions deepen when the skeletal remains of a baby with a christening gown are found in the foundation of her Tradd Street home following extensive repair work. Who is the baby? Things get even spookier when Melanie inherits an antique cradle which keeps getting moved mysteriously in the attic. With her relationship with Jack on fragile ground, can they reach an understanding before the secrets of the past take over the present?
Karen White is the award-winning author of sixteen previous books, including “After the Rain,” “The Time Between,” “On Folly Beach,” “Falling Home” and such Tradd Street novels as “The Strangers on Montagu Street” and “The Girl on Legare Street.” She grew up in London but now lives with her husband and two children near Atlanta, Ga.
