Melanie Trenholm is back to work from maternity leave as a real estate agent in Charleston. Her life seems very normal but her past is very unique due to her ability to communicate with ghosts. This past year her life has been ”spirit free” while spending time bonding with her twins. Her steady life starts to change when she begins to feel unsettled on her way to work. Her sleep was disturbed by a phone call that felt like a ghost. What is the significance of this new connection?
Her first day back at work went better than expected when she lands a client who wants to sell a home that she recently inherited. The client is not from the area and is not interested in owning a historical home. When the pair arrives to inspect the property, Melanie can sense an overwhelming amount of spirits. Through this connection, she convinces the new owner to renovated before selling. The mystery behind the unsettled spirits begins to unfold during the construction as Melanie encounters strange occurrences.
This book is the fifth in the series and can be read as a stand-alone. The Guests On South Battery is a very enjoyable read with elements of paranormal and mystery. I expect a further continuation of this series from Karen White.
