Karen reading from The House on Seventh Street at her book launch party at Books on the Square, Providence, Rhode Island.
What readers say

“The thing that struck me all the way through this book was the wonderful contrast between the languid descriptions of 'old town' America and of the house and gardens, the fading grandeur, and the build up of mystery and suspense. This was finely woven by the author.”

 “…well written, with rich and warm characters.”

 “This is probably better thought of as women's fiction than mystery, as we really do get a good, meaty examination of three generations of women in one complicated family.”

“There's a well-plotted mystery unfolding in the book, but a quite unusual one, ranging back and forth in time over most of the 20th century, exploring the lives of some remarkable characters in three generations of a Colorado family.”

The House on Seventh Street “…is beautifully written with captivating characters and a compelling plot that kept me entertained and engaged from beginning to end.”

“Like Winna, we are baffled as to how seemingly trustworthy characters could possibly be suspects, could be killers.”

“The delicious twist at the end came out of nowhere—and made perfect sense.”
Ebooks and paperbacks are available at all online bookstores or you may order at your local bookstore. The audio book is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.
The House on Seventh Street

When Winna returns to settle her father’s estate, she knows she’s heading into an emotional maelstrom. Estrangement, nostalgia, old wounds, and a rekindled love pull her in every direction. Then she finds a diamond ring hidden among her childhood marbles – and suddenly nothing in that grand old Edwardian house is what it seems. She would do well to let it all go to the estate sale and move on. As she delves deeper into her family’s past, Winna makes a dangerous discovery: the house on Seventh Street is hiding an 80-year-old secret – and someone is desperate to keep things buried.
