  • Humbled and chuffed to be getting positive reviews from readers on the book. Like this one:
    "The very talented Karen Goa has written her first novel! I really enjoyed it - full of witticisms, delightful imagery, and a genuinely interesting story. I devoured it in a weekend. Also a steal at the kindle price. Highly recommended.'
