Little Bits of Karma

Karma Series Prequel

Little Bits of Karma is a captivating story of reincarnation, redemption, and forgiveness.

Even though Holly O’Rourke is having problems with her longtime significant other, James, she has never entertained thoughts of infidelity…that is, until the day she has a chance encounter with Charlie, a handsome coworker. James promises he will change and work on their relationship, but Holly’s feelings for Charlie just won’t go away. Distressed by her mixed emotions, Holly schedules an appointment for a reading with a psychic medium, where she discovers her adulterous past lives and their tragic consequences. Holly learns to do her own past life regression through self-hypnosis and uncovers not only lives that she shared with James and Charlie, but how the other people in her present life have been with her in the past—the threads of their lives interwoven for centuries. Holly is stunned by recurring themes and the issues of karmic justice that need to be addressed. Where will her karmic path ultimately lead?

From BookViral . . .

A wonderfully astute, multi layered character driven novel, Little Bits Of Karma is the debut release from author Laura Simmons. Gradually building momentum, the plots twists and turns will enthral as the reader moves seamlessly from past to present. Yes, reincarnation is a popular theme, but quite often it’s made overly complex though this certainly isn’t the case here. Simmons sometimes stretches credibility to the limit, but her narrative remains perfectly coherent.  There’s timely exposition, her characters confidently developed and insightfully observed, all together fuelling intrigue and the desire to discover how the shards of Holly’s past bond together in the present. These alone are reasons to read Little Bits Of Karma, but what ultimately prevails is an innate sense of familiarity, ably captured by Simmons through the shrewd use of universal tropes which play to our innate need for answers. It’s entertaining, thought provoking and leads to an absolutely cracking denouement which readers will love.

"Little Bits of KARMA" by Laura Simmons is a very intriguing story that explains reincarnation; the supernatural force of redemption and the universal power of forgiveness. This story is shared from inside of the lives, present and past of Holly O'Rourke. Her decision, to visit a Psychic Medium, to address her desire to learn about her past lives.

This book is very well written and reads comfortably, whether you believe in Reincarnation or not. For me, it provided answers to life long questions, while leaving me with a longing to pursue those still unanswered. I highly recommend this book.  - - Book Referees

From Amazon . . .

Really enjoyed it - From the cover to the writing I really enjoyed this book. It's a bittersweet story with wonderful characters and a cleverly constructed narrative that brings multiple story threads together. Flitting between past and present the author spins an intriguing web which hooked me in the opening chapter and had me abandoning everything else until I got to the end. - - Avid Reader

What goes around comes around - I received a complimentary copy from NetGalley for an honest review. At first I was attracted to the visually appealing book cover that immediately caught my attention at first glance. The picture of the couple with the sun going down was breathtaking. The title of the book ‘Little Bits of Karma’ was not disappointing it matched the story perfectly. The book talked about the spiritual new age realm and explained the role of psychics in detail. The main characters are middle aged in this book making this book geared towards adult reading. The book is full of romance, suspense, and time travel with a touch of fantasy. I found myself envying Holly if only all of us could see our past lives in our dreams, learn from them and not make the same mistakes in our present life.

The book started with a prologue that listed individuals in the main character’s Holly O’Rourke current life and who they were in her past life. I found myself referencing the prologue repeatedly throughout the book. The prologue gave clarity. Holly’s past lives were intriguing. They say, “What goes around comes around” this is definitely true in this book. Sometimes we need a break from our own reality! Little Bits of Karma keeps you spellbound. -- Yvonne Wu
