The Steps to Karma, by Jennifer Howard
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
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.
