Karen's latest book The Hidden Beach transports us to the historic city of Stockholm and the beautiful archipelagos of the Swedish coast, where Bell Everhurst is working as a nanny for affluent couple, Hannah and Max. Looking after three children, life is ticking along, until Bell receives a call to say Hannah’s first husband has woken up from his coma, sending shockwaves through the family.

A story of forgiveness, letting go and second chances, along with well-developed characters and that gorgeous Swedish setting, it's a perfect summer-read.
