A charming, heartfelt tale of love lost and regained in a gated community in Savannah, Georgia.

After almost forty years in New Jersey, Catherine, Ralph, and their beloved Boston Terrier Karma are hitting the road, relocating to a gorgeous, serene island off the coast of Savannah, Georgia, where Catherine can work on her backhand and Ralph can hit the links. But upon their arrival in the Seven Oaks gated community, it becomes apparent that 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. As she sorts out fact from fiction and discovers what sorts of secrets might be hiding behind Seven Oaks’ pristine picket fences, she’ll have to make a decision affecting her future happiness and her chance at newfound love.

Praise for this book

"Christina Kelly s charming debut novel examines the heart of a long-married woman who, uprooted from the familiar, finds herself foundering, but finally flourishing in her new Savannah home, with a well-deserved second chance at love." - Mary Kay Andrews

"Normal dogs and abnormal people provide an entertaining glimpse of lives in transition in Good Karma. This charming novel is full of unique characters with twists and turns I did not see coming!" - W Bruce Cameron

"Christina Kelly s heartwarming novel peels away the layers of the Seven Oaks retirement community to reveal the many secrets roiling below its surface. A wonderful cast of characters including the chatty spirit of a recently departed resident, a matchmaking Great Dane, and a mysterious woman with a penchant for trespassing adds up to a surprising, wise, and romantic debut!" - Meg Donohue

"A charming debut where Southern-spiced humor, quirky characters, a disembodied spirit, and furry friends come together in a story that proves a retirement community can be anything but boring." - Beth Hoffman

"Good Karma is a fast-paced, funny, great good fortune of a novel that has it all: a love story, a mystery, eccentrics, adorable dogs, and even an alligator. Christina Kelly has a talent for touching our hearts even as she has us falling off the sofa with laughter." - Nancy Thayer

"Quirky and entertaining. A cleverly written reminder that it's never too late to fall in love or become the person you're meant to be." - Wendy Wax
