Meet the Author

Award-winning author Karen Rose Smith was born in Pennsylvania. Although she was an only child, she remembers the bonds of an extended family. She and her parents lived with her grandfather and aunt until she was five when her parents built a house next door. Since her father came from a family of ten and her mother, a family of seven, there were always aunts, uncles and cousins visiting on weekends. Family is a strong theme in her books and she suspects her childhood memories are the reason.
As a teenager, music became as important to Karen as reading. The Beatles were her favorite group. But she and her cousin took their first sojourn into writing by collaborating on a script for the MONKEES television program. They sent that script to every concert venue where the group appeared that summer!
In college, Karen began writing poetry and also met her husband to be. They both began married life as teachers, but when their son was born, Karen decided to try her hand at a home-decorating business. She returned to teaching for a while but changes in her life led her to writing romance fiction. Now she writes full time.
Her first romance was published in 1992; her 80th romance will be published in 2013. A winner of New Jersey's Golden Leaf Award in Short Contemporary Romance, Colorado Romance Writers Award Of Excellence for short contemporary, as well as the Phoenix Desert Rose Chapter's Golden Quill for Traditional Romance, she has also been honored with Cataromance.com's award for Best Special Edition. Her romances have made both the USA TODAY list, and the Amazon Romance and Contemporary Romance Bestseller lists.
Karen's SEARCH FOR LOVE ebook series will soon be available in audiobooks as well as ebooks. She has added book 7, HER SISTER, a contemporary women's fiction novel to the series. As well as indie publishing, she writes Harlequin Special Editions and will see the debut of a mystery series for Kensington in December 2013. Readers can follow her on Facebook (Search--Karen Rose Smith)or on Twitter @karenrosesmith. They can also contact her through her websites at www.karenrosesmith.com and www.karenrosesmithmysteries.com. She welcomes interaction with her readers and would love to chat about plotlines, titles, emotions, heroes, heroines, music, books, gardening, cooking, or anything else readers deem noteworthy!

    Enjoyed!

    Great story about 2 mature people getting to know one another and the secrets of a past. Each chapter builds into the next one letting you see the development of the characters and their decisions made. I'd recommend it to someone who loves great endings.

    Fun and easy read- worth a few hours!

    I really enjoyed this book. The author has created two interesting and likable characters.

    Dr. Paige Conrad is working at a local clinic for a family friend as he recovers from a health scare. Clay is the owner of a local shop and introduced when Dr. Conrad seeks him out. Clay has physically recovered from a serious accident.

    What most do not know is that Clay has permanent memory loss. I think this could have been explored deeper as the book continued but for a fun summer read, this book fits the bill.

    There are some adult scenes but they are not explicit or offensive in my opinion.
