This spring, from the author of a dozen New York Times bestsellers and over twenty novels, comes the second highly anticipated book in the new Royal Street series, THE HOUSE ON PRYTANIA STREET by Karen White (Berkley Hardcover; May 16, 2023).

In the initial installment, The Shop on Royal Street, readers follow Nola Trenholm, the stepdaughter of Tradd Street’s beloved Melanie Trenholm, as she looks for a fresh start in New Orleans but must deal with ghosts from her past and present. In White’s latest volume, Nola feels ready to settle into her new home, but trouble makes its way to her in an unearthly form.

“I knew Nola’s story couldn’t be contained in one book. There are currently four books scheduled for the series with the hope to continue the story until Nola decides it’s time to leave her alone—or I’ve run out of house, ghosts, and characters to write about (which could be a long, long time),” Karen shares.

Nola Trenholm is eager to resume her new life in her newly purchased fixer-upper in New Orleans. Except, several restless spirits—including a very angry ghost—are unwilling to leave. Nola may not be psychic herself, but she’s spent enough time around people who are to know when ghosts are present, and there are definitely a few lingering spirits in her Creole Cottage. Something, or someone, is keeping them tethered to this world. And not all of them are benign.

But with the sudden return of Sunny Ryan, Beau Ryan’s long-lost sister, Nola has plenty to distract her from her ghostly housemates. Especially when the tempting—yet firmly unavailable—Beau, wanting justice on those he blames for Sunny’s kidnapping, asks Nola for a favor that threatens to stall her hard-won recovery and send her hurtling backwards. He asks her to welcome Michael Hebert back into her life, even though Michael is the reason for Nola’s bruised heart. Beau is convinced that Michael’s powerful family was behind Sunny’s disappearance and that Michael is the key to getting information that the police won’t be able to ignore. If only Nola is willing to risk everything for which she’s worked so hard.

Torn between helping Beau and protecting herself, Nola doesn’t realize until it’s almost too late why the ghosts are haunting her house—a startling revelation that will throw her and Beau together to fight a common enemy. Assuming Nola can get Beau to listen to what the spirits are trying to tell him because ignoring them could prove to be a fatal mistake…

This second novel in the Royal Street series promises brand-new adventures and explores recurring themes including the sometimes-frayed bonds of family, love, and friendship, as well as resilience. Tradd Street lovers will also be glad to see old characters and storylines revisited (including a visit from Melanie!) in White’s compelling and witty new series.

THE HOUSE ON PRYTANIA STREET is the perfect spring book for lovers of lighthearted mysteries with a generous helping of laughs along the way. Karen White is a star in the world of commercial fiction and her latest novel offers readers her signature blend of romance, mystery, and historical fiction.
