Stayed up half the night reading THE TURNAROUND! Couldn't put it down and got up early and finished reading it. Great job, great book! I was inspired and blessed.

You did some masterful plotting, characterizations, etc. It is all very believable and unpredictable.
Again, congrats and best wishes for sharing it with a wide audience.

I loved it! Seriously! The plot was quirky, the characters were fun — I especially liked the pseudo-kidnappers.
~ Jeri M
The Turnaround was very good with a fully involved moving plot and many good characters. You did a great job introducing the characters to us. Adding the belief in Jesus and God and having faith through characters Grace, Phil, and Sadie was so YOU. Contrastingly the characters of Jerry, Madeline, Pete, LeRoy, and Winner were so mean, self-centered, dishonest unintelligent, simple, or needy.
~ Betty S
I just finished reading your first novel. Karen, it was terrific! I actually put it down once because it was exciting and I didn't want to know what was next until I had "discussed it with my mind". I really enjoyed the ending because Grace was saved and all the stupid guys didn't have to pay the consequences of being stupid, greedy, and slovenly. To write a book isn't easy. You have to have an imagination, creative mind, be well organized, disciplined, and a great desire to put words on the paper. I am very proud of you. I hope you have the fire to write another. I plan on sharing this book with three different friends of mine. Thanks for the read.
