The Attic on Queen Street

  ~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  In THE ATTIC ON QUEEN STREET, life has gotten out of control for Melanie Trenholm. She has twin toddlers to keep up with, a stepdaughter leaving for college, a real estate career to resume, and a historic home that is still being restored. And on top of all that, her husband has asked for a separation—a separation that might have been her own fault. She doesn’t have time to wonder where it all went wrong, but she’s determined to keep it together and win her husband back. 

Their relationship issues are pushed aside, however, when longtime nemesis Marc Longo comes to them with a proposition: allow their Tradd Street house to be used as the filming location for the movie adaptation of Marc’s bestselling book, and he will help Jack re-establish his stalled writing career. Despite Melanie’s hesitation, Jack jumps at the chance. But Melanie’s doubts soon prove to be well founded when she uncovers ulterior reasons for Marc wanting to be back in their house—reasons that include a hidden gem so brilliant that legend links it to the most infamous jewel of all, the Hope Diamond.
But Melanie has an unexpected ally in protecting the house and its inhabitants—the ghost of a Civil War era girl warns her of increasing threats to her family. But she’s not the only spirit who is haunting Melanie. A malevolent ghost seems determined to stop Melanie from investigating the decades-old murder of a friend’s sister, and this spirit will stop at nothing to protect its secrets—even from beyond the grave.
Melanie and Jack must work together to find the answers before evil spirits of past and present destroy everything they love.

 THE ATTIC ON QUEEN STREET is a series finale that is exciting, fun, and original, sure to give a satisfying end to Melanie’s story while also looking towards the coming spin-off series. 

My Thoughts: I just finished the first book in the series - The House on Tradd Street and loved it. Review to come! I had not heard of Karen's series, but so glad I was told about it! I can't wait to read the other 6 (there are 7 in the series).

I have enjoyed some of Karen's other books: Sea Change, and Dreams of Falling. There are a ton of her books that I would love to read. 

I grew up being a voracious reader and it was a natural step to turn my interest to writing. I have published 28 award-winning and bestselling novels including my latest release, THE CHRISTMAS SPIRITS ON TRADD STREET, published by Penguin Random House in October, 2019. This is the 6th book in the Tradd Street series, to be followed by the final book, THE ATTIC ON QUEEN STREET, scheduled for publication on November 2, 2021. My next book, THE LAST NIGHT IN LONDON, will be published on April 20, 2021.

I write what others have termed "grit-lit"--southern women's fiction, as well as a contemporary paranormal mystery series (The House on Tradd Street is the 1st book in the series) set in Charleston, South Carolina. 

I have also written three collaborations with bestselling authors Lauren Willig and Beatriz Williams. The most recent, ALL THE WAYS WE SAID GOODBYE, was published my William Morrow in January, 2012. We are hard at work on book #4, scheduled for publication in September, 2022.

I have two grown children (one of whom appears in several of my books under the alias of Meghan Black), and live near Atlanta, Georgia with my husband and two of the cutest Havanese dogs, Quincy and Sophie Belle. Readers may recognize Quincy as General Lee in the Tradd Street series. 

Happy reading!
