Today's Read & Giveaway: The Strangers on Montagu Street by Karen White

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 "teaser" sentences from that page. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

I'm on a roll with good October reading! Today I'm spotlighting the third in the Tradd Street series by Karen White, which is coming out November 1. Haven't read the first two? Enter my giveaway to get a copy of each.

I felt my mother watching me and I turned my head. Her eyes were narrowed in concentration, and I knew she could smell the acrid scent heavy in the early summer night. She stepped forward, and before I could stop her, she reached out her hand to touch the curling eave of the old dollhouse, and the air screamed. (p. 49)
—From The Strangers on Montagu Street by Karen White (Penguin USA / New American Library, 2011 [from uncorrected proof, may differ from published edition])

The Giveaway: To celebrate the publication of Karen White's third Tradd Street novel starring Melanie Middleton, ghost-seeing Realtor, and Jack Trenholm, investigative writer, I am pleased to have the opportunity to offer one of my readers the chance to win copies of the first two books in this series: The House on Tradd Street and The Girl on Legare Street.

The books are perfect for fall reading and for those who like a little bit of woo-woo mixed in with their mysteries as well as for those who like a little rocky romance thrown in for good measure. To enter for a chance to win the first two books in the series, just fill out the form. This giveaway is sponsored by the publicists and is open to those with a U.S. or Canada mailing address only. I'll pick the winner on Halloween!

Really like the sound of t his teaser... and the cover gives is such a creepy feel... Thanks for visiting my blog. BTW on the book Forever, I'm on the last few chp and I already feel like I'm going to miss the cast - even if the middle of the book was a bit on the boring side...

I was just mumbling to myself as I opened your post that "I need to read the first two before I get to this one!". Well, maybe that means I will win. I do love this woman. She is a wonder.
