Bad in Bed book


Bad in Bed (A Fairy Tale) by Karen Saari.

Charles’ third wife has just left him. As he reels from news and the reason she gives, he spends a weekend in northern Michigan with his best friend Jack and their college friend Betsy, an up and coming author. Betsy reveals a secret from their college days that could be the reason for Charles’ failed relationships. Will she be able to help Charles win back his wife? Maybe, with the help of a Finnish coven.


Bad in Bed (A Fairy Tale) had its developmental premiere at Acadiana Repertory Theatre, Lafayette, LA, Feb. 2018. It was a semi-finalist for the 2018 Garry Marshall New Works Festival.
