About the Book
Moving in with her brother and reconnecting with her ex-boyfriend are at the top of the list. What’s not on the list is running into her childhood crush, Ryan. God wanted her to connect with Kyle, right?
Trying to figure out God’s plan is hard enough. But a dating-averse older brother, the young blonde who adores him, a pregnant best friend, and Callie’s continual mishaps make her wonder whether her best laid plans were truly God-inspired.
Now available from Elk Lake Publishing!
In My Opinion…
Callie Stevens has a plan for the summer but is it the same one God has for her?
Karin Beery’s debut has plenty of humor (how could it not with an accident-prone heroine and lots of trouble for her to get into?). It also carries an excellent message for anyone who struggles to relinquish control of their lives.
Because Callie is so focus on making her plan work, she neglects to take it in front of God. When things fall apart, Callie is left adrift. Instead of seeing the great things God places in her path, she only sees her life crumbling.
Readers get a bonus romance between Callie’s brother Jack and a member of their church. It takes a while for these two siblings to get with the program, though (must run in the family).
Summer Plans and Other Disasters is a wonderful book to pick up when you are in the mood for a little romance with a few laughs thrown in. But it also reminds us that no matter what life throws at us, God is in control.

About the Author
Karin wrote her first novel in 2007 to cope with her husband’s cancer diagnosis (no worries – he’s cancer free now!). With the support and encouragement of her family, she submitted that manuscript. That particular manuscript has not been published yet, but Summer Plans and Other Disasters, her first published book, releases in September 2018.
Karin writes contemporary and speculative fiction stories with a healthy dose of romance, but she’s also expanded her repertoire: she writes feature stories for the local paper, copy material for businesses, and blog posts for herself and others. She even edits (offering copy editing, fiction editing, and critiques through Write Now Editing Services) and teaches (she’s the Substantive Fiction Editing instructor for the PEN Institute and can be found around the country teaching writing and editing courses at conferences and at her local college).
When Karin’s not reading, writing, or editing, she enjoys cooking and baking. She plays the piano and sings (the key of E, please). She kayaks with her husband in the summer, watches football in the fall (Go Blue!), and enjoys Christmas lights all winter long. Shy but extroverted, Karin adores her nieces and nephew and loves spending time with her family. Learn more about Karin at: karinbeery.com.
