Karen Rose writes romantic suspense novels and since the characters are all interlinked, with some appearing in multiple books, they are better read in order. The series begins in Chicago, then Minneapolis, Baltimore, and Cincinnati, with the Vartanian trilogy taking place between the Chicago and Minneapolis books.
