The Shop on Royal Street by Karen White


After a difficult detour on her road to adulthood, Nola Trenholm is looking to begin anew in New Orleans, and what better way to start her future than with her first house? But the historic fixer-upper she buys comes with even more work than she anticipated when the house’s previous occupants don’t seem to be ready to depart.
Although she can’t communicate with ghosts like her stepmother can, luckily Nola knows someone in New Orleans who is able to—even if he’s the last person on earth she wants anything to do with ever again. Beau Ryan comes with his own dark past—a past that involves the disappearance of his sister and parents during Hurricane Katrina—and he’s connected to the unsolved murder of a woman who once lived in the old Creole cottage Nola is determined to make her own…whether the resident restless spirits agree or not.

The Shop on Royal Street by Karen White


The Shop on Royal Street is the first book in the Royal Street series. Nola Trenholm is starting over and has purchased a fixer-upper for her fresh start. Not only does her new home need some work, but there is also a mystery to solve. A woman was murdered in the house, and the case was never solved.

Southern fiction with a cast of fun characters. The Shop on Royal Street is an atmospheric mystery with a little paranormal and romance. A fun start to a new series. Recommended to fans of Southern fiction and mysteries.
