Writers Inspiring Change featured book: Love, Magic and Mystery by Karina McRoberts

Another time - another place!

Retired nurse and kooky bookstore owner Mari Linden rescues badly beaten rookie cop Michael Harker; but his life lacks meaning and he cannot recover. Fate throws Mike into the past, where he lands at The Palace of the Stars musical hall theatre, and is employed by its magnanimous impresario, J.T. Gordon. Mike falls for a mysterious dancer/magician, who begs him to solve a series of gruesome murders, and he re-invents himself as a time-travelling detective.

Struggling with the culture and morals of the day, Mike chases down murderers, mad doctors, pirates, his sanity, and, the love his life! Meanwhile, Mari fights aftershocks, book thieves, maniacs, fat cats, and bureaucrats to keep her store and the time portal open, hoping that Mike can return.

Richly realized and highly evocative, these three thrilling Victorian time-travel novels will transport you to a world like no other. Adventure, mystery, romance, horror, humor, and of course, skulduggery! Check out the stunning book trailer on YouTube entitled "The Palace of the Stars". The Palace of the Stars is a Literary Titan Gold Book Award Winner and a Finalist in the Wishing Shelf Book Awards. REVIEWS LISTED ON INDIVIDUAL BOOKS.

Character rich and emotionally engaging, her stories have won numerous awards.

Hope is light to the heart! As her character JT Gordon says in her time-travel adventure/romance novel, The Palace of the Stars, 'Don't measure your time in minutes, treasure your time in moments.' Indeed.
