In the greatest conflict of her life, can she figure out who to trust?
Starla Devaroux is at the peak of her music career. Life as a popular Christian music artist is good. This Christmas she finds herself at the crossroads of several life-altering choices. It's quite a conundrum; the path she takes this time will not only define her future but alter the lives of others as well.
"The main characters were very likable, I could really put myself in Starla's shoes."
"It was charming and romantic, and I want to marry Mason, lol."

“Can you explain to me what happened, or would you like to wait till tomorrow? I’d prefer today, if you can find it within yourself to share with me. I’ve always been here for you … always. Starla, what is wrong?” Janice had cleaned her face up in the bathroom, and had already returned to her perpetual look that said, “I’m the one who manages ‘Starla the Starlet.’” “Again, I’m sorry. Please forgive me. I just need a break. I’ve been telling you, for the last several gigs, that I’m worn out. I don’t feel like I’m being heard. Something is off, and I can’t figure out what it is. I didn’t mean to hurt you or Jacob.” Starla rubbed her temples, and perched on the edge of the office chair. Her coffee threatened to refuse to stay in her stomach. “I decided I needed a vacation, just a week or two. I found a great place and a good deal and I didn’t know the note vanished. I was just over at The Hot Java.” “You mean to tell me you weren’t even a block away? You put me through all of this and you weren’t even out of the state or in another country! Starla that is the most selfish, childish thing you have ever done. That’s not showing love, or kindness. What the heck were you thinking? That’s not Christ-like, and you know better! What if something happened to you? We were so scared that you’d been murdered or worse. What if….” Janice’s list of dire issues droned on, but Starla couldn’t concentrate on them. The carpet that had started moving in slow circles seemed to be speeding up. Starla tried to cut into Janice’s monologue, but all she managed was a moan before she fell out of the chair onto the floor. Something cold was on her head and everything sounded like a hive of bees and looked fuzzy. “What’s happening to me?” The words seemed thick and difficult to say. Starla wasn’t even sure they came out right. Suddenly, everything went black.
Carol E. Keen enjoys fresh coffee, hot tea, and a good book. She was published for several years in FAMA magazine (Freshwater And Marine Aquarium) as a contributing editor. She published her first book on CD, called Simply Seahorses.

Who designed your book covers?
I have more than one designer, but this cover is from Infinity Book Covers. https://thebookcoverdesigner.com/designers/infinity-book-covers/
The Corandria Station cover is by Madison Book Cover Designs.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
I don’t think so. I really like it, even if I do say so myself! If I have a sequel, I can have a longer story or several shorter ones.
Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
It’s always a learning experience. I don’t think anyone ever writes and doesn’t learn from it. (Does that happen?) I learned a new style. I learn new things that are in my imagination.
Anything specific you want to tell your readers?
Hi and thank you so much for reading my books! It's appreciated more than I can every say.
How did you come up with name of this book?
The prior title, in the anthology, was Christmas Conundrum. Starla has some major choices and they aren’t easy ones. It’s a conundrum. When I published it on its own, it became Starla’s Christmas Conundrum.
Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
It’s some of both. When I’m writing a book, traits from past experiences I’m my life can come into play. None of them are from any one person, that part is from my imagination.
