A Note from Karen

I’m so excited to finally share book #5 in the Tradd Street series with you. The cast of quirky and charming characters you’ve grown to love, including Jack, Melanie, General Lee and Nola, return in THE GUESTS ON SOUTH BATTERY, now available in stores nationwide! This series is near and dear to my heart for many reasons. The setting, in the Holy City of Charleston, South Carolina, is one of my absolute favorite places in the world. It’s a dream and pleasure to visit here often (for research purposes of course!) to savor the Lowcountry cuisine, smell the pluff mud and marvel at the architectural beauty of the old homes found here. Inspiration can be found at every corner and on every street of this beautiful and historic city. I have a special fondness for these characters, especially Melanie who may or may not resemble the author, and you’ll meet a new character in this book, Meghan Black, a student of Historic Preservation who was inspired by none other than my daughter, Meghan White. And who can resist the charming, handsome Jack Trenholm, now even more loveable as he learns to navigate the world of fatherhood and parenting twins.

Book tour for THE GUESTS ON SOUTH BATTERY is now underway! Please check out my Appearances page, and if I’m visiting a city near you, I hope you’ll come visit as I love the chance to meet my readers and share a story or two.

In other book news, be on the lookout for my spring 2017 release, THE NIGHT THE LIGHTS WENT OUT, on April 11th. (check out the cover—I think it’s my favorite so far!). We’ve got lots of fun activities planned for this release as well.  Book tour and special events are already in the works so please stay tuned…

I’m truly fortunate to have such wonderful readers!  Thank you for your ongoing support and enthusiasm for my writing.  You, my friends, make the long hours of research and writing all worth it!

Happy Reading,
