Christina Kelly, "Good Karma"
New York Times crossword puzzlemaker Christina Kelly comes to The Regulator Bookshop for a reading and book signing of her debut novel, Good Karma.
In a gated community in Savannah, Georgia, Catherine and Ralph’s visions of retirement couldn’t be more different. While Catherine is intrigued by their quirky neighbors, Ralph’s golf-and-poker routine seems to be interrupted only by his flirtations with their zealous real estate agent. As the pair drift further apart, Catherine cannot help but sense her marriage is at risk. Then, she meets recent widower Fred at the dog park. United by their dogs, they embark upon a friendship that could be something more—until she discovers that he’s not quite what he seems.
