"Dont miss Karen Barnetts new release The Road to Paradise. This novel combines endearing characters taking on big challenges, nail-biting moments hoping that the land developer doesnt win the day, the magnificent setting in the national park at Mount Rainier, and happiness that there will be more books like this one. Keep it up, Karen."
Lauraine Snelling, best-selling author of the acclaimed Red River of the North series and many other novels
"A story as invigorating, inspiring, and perilous as Mount Rainier itself! The Road to Paradise by Karen Barnett pulled me in with humor and fascinating characters and a delicious romance, then kept me up late as Ford and Margie strive to save the national park that seems determined to kill them. The authors experiences as a park ranger give this novel both authenticity and passion, and I cant wait for her next national parks book!"
Sarah Sundin, award-winning author of When Tides Turn

This seasoned author takes us to new heights as we encounter stories behind the formation of our national parks. Great characters, precise and fascinating images, a plot that kept me turning pages. The Road to Paradise is a top-notch novel that will remind readers of why we love our national parks and make us want to visit every single one, envisioning where the characters found their faith, friendships, and love. But I dont plan to climb Mount Rainer…this author already did it for me!"
