Carol Post, daughter-in-law of Martha and Dick Post of Bartow, and wife of Chris Post, had her novel, Midnight Shadows, published by Harlequin. The book was distributed to outlets Jan. 1, and is available at Walmart, Amazon.com, and Barnes and Noble.com, among other outlets. Post said that joining a writers group helped her hang in there through the long process and the many rejections that writers typically go through before being published.
Not only does Carol Post's newly-published suspense novel feature two scenes set in Bartow's Mary Holland Park, but the cover, shown here, is based on the bridge that goes over the lake close to the park's entrance. Post said she had fond memories of her family spending time at Mary Holland as her children were growing up.

Thus, two scenes in her suspense/romance novel take place at the Bartow landmark. Its bridge is even featured on the cover, with a few fictionalized touches.
