Mary Paredes Karnes ’78

1978MaryParedesKarnesI am FINALLY, (and happily), able to announce the debut of my cozy/mystery, “Simply the Best” in March, 2014. It is my first book to be published, and is about, what else?… A wedding planner! Here’s a short description of the mystery…

“Grace Mc Kenna is a spunky, beautiful wedding planner in exclusive Santa Barbara, California. It’s not easy being ‘wedding planner to the rich and famous,’ but someone has to do it. Grace’s seemingly ideal life is complicated by a handsome cop ex-husband, a mischievous 12 year old daughter, and oh yes, a murdered assistant who just happens to be the Maid of Honor in her latest wedding. Grace wants to solve the case when her best friend is accused of the murder, but is the cost too great?”

It will be published in eBook format only at this time. And will soon be available on Amazon Kindle, then shortly after on Nook, by Barnes and Noble, Apple iBooks, Kobo, Sentral, Gardners Books, Page Pusher, Bakers and Tayler, Scribd, eSentral, Goodreads, and Copia. I will give updates when “Simply the Best” becomes available to each site. Thank you for all your support both for my blog, and for this venture. And as a footnote to my CA friends, Ojai and Redlands appear in the book; and to my New England friends, NE does as well!
