Karen White Has Done it Again

The Guests on South Battery (Tradd Street) by [White, Karen]

The Guests on South Battery , a novel by one of my favorite authors, has done it again!  This is another novel of mystery, suspense, drama and some comedy mixed in!  I read it in three days and had a really hard time putting it down, like most of her books.  Karen White is truly a gifted writer and I’m so glad I found her to entertain myself!!

Author: countrygirllifeonthefarm

I am a wife, mother, and grandmother that lives on a farm in Craig County, Virginia and I am retired. I love to cook, read, quilt, craft, garden, hunt and take long walks in the woods. I have one gorgeous teen granddaughter, a wonderful little grandson and two beautiful and caring children, boy & girl. I've been married to my farmer husband for 46 years and he's the "love of my life"!! I love doing things the "old" way such as canning, making maple syrup & cider, handcrafts and baking. I've taught myself to crochet, embroider, and quilt with help from my paternal grandmother. I could read until the cows come home. We live off the products we raise and hunt for the most part. We run 75 head of cattle on our farm, 30 chickens, three rabbits and one dog. I help my husband with the cattle, feeding the livestock, hauling in firewood, fence repair, and general maintenance on the farm. I was a stay-at-home mom to my children and then went to work when they finished high school. I was a cook at a School for At-Risk Teens and part-time substitute teacher. Then I started work at our local Farm Bureau and stayed there for 17 years. I worked at Virginia Tech for almost five years and decided to take early retirement in July of 2015. NOW, I'm a full-time farmwife and loving every minute of it! I love to read fiction and the Bible. I'm currently hooked on quilting novels and Annie's Attic mysteries. I started this blog in 2011 and have met so many interesting bloggers and have kept up with my friends through my blog. I love to hunt with my bow and rifle and with a camera. We hunt to fill the freezer and cellar but would never kill anything for the fun of it. I have friends and family all over the United States. Some of my ancestry last names are Bradley, Dickson, Hylton, and Rose. I've lost both of my parents to brain cancer and miss them very much. I have one sister and four living brothers. I was raised in Paint Bank VA and moved to New Castle VA when I married. I went to school in Waiteville, WV, Gap Mills, WV and New Castle Va with a short semester of college at Virginia Western Community College in Roanoke VA.

  1. Never heard of this author. I will check here at the library re; the author.
    Yep K.White’s books are here on the shelves including the one that you mention above! Well that was a surprise for me.

    I have read your recent farm up dates – cattle, wood, ducks etc.
    Of them all, the ducks are the easiest to look after, they are pretty independent creatures. Just make sure the foxes and feral other unpleasant ‘duck eating/killing’ for fun creatures can’t get at them.

    Thanks for the reply re: my travelling family – it is in our blood.
    Unfortunately due to my back problems I am grounded as when you travel overseas health insurance is a must, unless you are stark raving mad!
    I can’t get health insurance, I am unfortunately too much of a risk.
    Still I have done all my travelling when I was young, fit and able so I guess I shouldn’t whinge – anyhow no one takes any notice – ha ha!
    Only now wish that I had gone on one of my US trips via South America – Santiago, Buenos Aires and Rio. It was just a bit more in costs and there are direct flights ex: Sydney to Santiago (Chile) and Buenos Aires (Argentina) with Lan Chile Airlines, Qantas and Air New Zealand to choose from.
    Lan Chile flies to quite a few US cities so that would be the choice for travel.

    Pity about your recent colds and the unco-operative bloody weather.
    Here we still are in SUMMER and it is 1/2 through Autumn!
    Rain is badly needed for the farming community. It is a sad state of affairs I can assure you.

    Cheers to Eddie and family members

  2. Didn’t we already read this? You paid a crazy amount of money for it. You didn’t rebuy it? Did you finally read it?


  3. I don’t think I’ve read any of her books, but I just put a hold on this one at my library (audiobook). Hopefully it will be available by the time I finish the one I have now! I seldom find time to read a “real” book any more, but I always have an audiobook in my car for the commute! Thanks for the recommendation.
