Welcome to Kismet, PA, where home stager Caprice De Luca helps her clients shine in a lackluster real estate market–and where someone may only be in the market for murder. . .
Caprice De Luca has successfully parlayed her skills as an interior designer into a thriving home staging business. So when her old high school friend Roz Winslow asks her to spruce up her mess of a mansion to perk up a slow buyer’s market, Caprice is more than happy to share her skills. But when Roz’s husband Ted is found skewered by one of his sword room’s prized possessions, it appears the Winslows may have a few skeletons in their palatial closets. With the stage set for murder, Caprice will discover she can track down an antique tapestry and a cold-blooded killer with equal aplomb–as long as she’s not the next victim. . .
About the Author
Karen Rose Smith is writing mysteries as well as romances now! Her plots, whether in mystery or romance, are all about relationships.
She began writing in her early teens when she listened to music and created stories to accompany the songs. After expressing feelings in poetry, earning a degree in English and French, completing short stories that became too long to find a market, she turned to her fascination with relationships to writing romances and now mysteries. This award-winning best-selling author (USA Today List, Borders Bestseller List, Amazon Romance Bestseller lists, Barnes and Noble Bestseller list) will see her 104th novel released in 2020. She has published with Silhouette, Harlequin, Kensington, and Meteor/Kismet. Her awards include two Golden Leaf awards in short contemporary romance, the Golden Quill in traditional romance, two cataromance.com awards for Best Special Editions, and Romance Review’s Today’s Best series romance award. Jane Bowers of Romance Reviews Today states: “Karen Rose Smith’s story worlds are complete and realistic and lovely places to visit and revisit. She excels at stories that feature couples brought together by infants and children, and she handles her plots and characters with sublime sensitivity.”
Karen is well-known for writing emotion-packed novels. An only child, she spent a lot of time in her imagination and with books–Nancy Drew, Zane Gray, The Black Stallion, and Anne of Green Gables. She dreamt of brothers and sisters and a big family like her mother and father came from–seven children in her mom’s family and ten in her dad’s. On weekends she was often surrounded by aunts, uncles, and cousins. This is the root of her plotlines that include small communities and family relationships as integral to everyday living. She believes universal emotions unite us all and that is the reason she employs them to propel her plots.
It is no secret that Karen married her college sweetheart and they have been married for 48 years. She believes in the power of commitment and the hope that goes along with the promise of everlasting love. Along with enjoying time with her husband, Karen enjoys cooking, watercolor painting, gardening, shopping, listening to music, and keeping her seven rescued cats company or vice versa.
She has been busy indie publishing her SEARCH FOR LOVE series. In addition, she has written the Caprice De Luca mystery series as well as her Daisy’s Tea Garden series for Kensington along with romances for Harlequin Special Edition.
