A Touch of Charm
"Karen Fox has written a tale that shows
women as being strong and having a voice. She was also able to nicely fit
together the belief that two people working together can make a difference in
the world around them--even if it is one step at a time. ...delightful"

Review Quotes for A Touch of Charm
"Filled with characters to warm your heart, and topped off
with dollops of whimsy, this is a lovely, sweet read meant for a quiet day spent
with only a glass of ice tea for company."
"...nothing interferes with the
natural course of this mostly traditional, delightful romance. 4 stars!"
"A very interesting premise and well-developed characters.
"An excellent historical story with a touch of paranormal"
"A TOUCH OF CHARM is a delightful contribution to The Three
Graces trilogy. Ms. Fox blends humor, political intrigue and family scandal into
a quick and thoroughly entertaining read. Will is a hero with secrets and thirst
for vengeance, which I found surprising when compared to my initial impression
of him as a straight-laced politico. I liked this dimension to his character a
great deal. I was also impressed with several of the supporting characters and
their contribution to the story, most notably with Mrs. Barclay, Will's mother.
Also, while the ending is a happy one, it wasn't what I expected and so another
pleasant surprise. Though part of a trilogy, A TOUCH OF CHARM could be enjoyed
as a stand-alone and it is with that I make my recommendation. "
"As I was looking at books the other day, A Touch of Charm
caught my eye because of the name of the author...my name. Although
that was the initial reason I got the book, the enjoyment I received
while reading it is the reason that I will continue to read the rest
of the ones you have written. Thank you for the pleasure."
"I pre-ordered this from Barnes and Noble- got it a few days
ago...I cannot wait to read it. Let me just say, if it has your name on it, it
is on my shelf. "
Why Did I Write This Book?
My critique partners and I had such fun writing the Hope Chest series that three of us put together another series for Zebra Ballad. We set the book in 1882 Colorado Springs, a time when the city was known as "Newport of the Rockies" and "Little London," a time when policemen were called bobbies and natives carried umbrellas when it rained in London.
We conceived of three sisters--Belle, Charisma and Grace, named after the three graces. However, none of them embodies the grace for which they were named. Belle isn't beautiful, Charisma is appallingly blunt and Grace is a first-rate klutz. But their fervent wishes made before the Three Grace rock formation in the Garden of the Gods change everything. Suddenly, each sister discovers not only her spoken wish, but her unspoken desire as well.
