Book Review: The Steps to Karma

Picture The Steps to Karma, by Jennifer Howard

Karma Clark’s life as a high-powered Washington DC divorce attorney is killing her – almost literally. When she realizes that she has to give up the life she knows in order to have any life at all, she heads for the U.S. Virgin Islands in search of herself and a way of life she can live with.

Written in the same breezy style as Ms. Howard’s first novel, The Healing Heart, The Steps to Karma starts out with a truly harrowing life crisis for Karma. I immediately loved the character and wanted to see things go better for her. The characters she meets on St. John, especially new best friend Jae and hunky Will, are also well-drawn and engaging. The descriptions are beautifully written, and I could almost see, hear, smell, and taste the warm and exotic Caribbean flavor of the setting.

After the initial crisis, The Steps the Karma is very much a feel-good novel, that will take you on a fun, uplifting, and exotic island escape.

Kyra Halland has always loved fantasy. She has also always loved a good love story. Years ago, as a new stay-at-home mom, she decided to combine those two loves - like chocolate and peanut butter! - by writing the kinds of romantic fantasy novels she wanted to read. Complicated, honorable heroes; strong, smart, feminine heroines; magic, romance, and adventure; deep emotion mixed with a dash of offbeat humor - all of these make up Kyra Halland's worlds. She loves sharing those worlds with readers and hopes they will enjoy her stories and characters as much as she does. Kyra Halland lives in southern Arizona. She has a very patient husband, two less-patient cats, two young adult sons, a lovely daughter-in-law, and an adorable granddaughter. Besides writing, she enjoys scrapbooking and anime, and she wants to be a crazy cat lady when she grows up. View all posts by kyrahalland
