Good Karma by Christina Kelly

Good Karma is the debut novel by Christina Kelly. It is a charming and quirky novel set near Savannah, Georgia.

First let me say that this is not my type of book. But, it kept me interested due to the excellent writing, including the plot and character development. Even though this is her first book, you can tell that Kelly knows how to write a good story.

Kelly quickens or slows down the plot depending on what is occurring in the story. Revolving the story around Karma – a Boston Terrier – and how its owners (Ralph and Catherine) are trying to adapt to new surroundings in Savannah and their new lives in retirement is a wonderful idea. The climax is not as big of a deal as I expected, but it has a twist that led to more twists.

Kelly captures the everyday feelings of the characters – you can sympathize with one of the protagonists, Fred, as he deals with the loss of his wife. Not only is he dealing with the loss of his wife, he is trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter.
