Read Good Karma Online Free - 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.

In GOOD KARMA, a zany ensemble cast wrestles with retirement, loss, loneliness and love, not at an exotic (Marigold) hotel but at a gated golf community in Savannah. The fun begins early on at the community's dog park and lasts until the final pages of this novel, rich in hilarity and heart.

But the most charming element of the novel is the growing relationship between Catherine and Fred, who exhibit that thrill of new love often attrib...

This is a very long review, apologies. I really enjoyed this novel. Please read as far as you like.
Christina Kelly’s Good Karma is a warm hearted and wise narrative that might be labeled a coming of age novel or bildungsroman for the (almost) geriatric set. It is funny, gentle, and insightful. It...
