Early Praise for Tangled Lies
"Gritty and gripping, Tangles Lies is a murder mystery with a tender heart at its core."
- Jenny Jaeckel, Author of the House of Rougeaux
"Engaging and well crafted."
- Dan Lawton, Author of The Green House
"Tangled Lies is a deftly written combination of suspense and women’s fiction. The author intricately weaves the story of two women from different backgrounds and cultures who join forces to right a wrong and find a murderer. I was immediately drawn into the lives of Osborne’s well-developed characters and was intrigued by their emotional connections and the fast-paced plot. Highly recommended!"
- A.J. McCarthy, award-winning Author of Faux Friends

Praise for Getting It Right

Karen's first book, Getting It Right, is available for purchase now.

"Osborne explores questions of race, privilege, and family loyalties without offering any false, easy answers for her two protagonists."

"Looking for an edge-of-your-seat suspense yarn? You won't find a more absorbing story than Getting It Right...In it we get to know half sisters Kara and Alex, who meet for the first time as adults. Over two weeks in March, the siblings deal with both their own and common issues and drama in ways that entertain and enlighten."
--Essence Magazine

"Osborne has created a compelling story of women trying to move past the bondage of their upbringing. We are left wondering, what does it mean to make amends? Is redemption possible?...Getting It Right is absorbing and pushes at understanding race, family bonds, and trauma."
--Atticus Review
