Starred Review for DEAD GIRL RUNNING!
“Disgruntled employees, picky guests, unreliable vendors—Kellen Adams, assistant manager of the Yearning Sands resort, can handle
any of those issues without breaking a sweat, but a corpse is something different. … No one does high-stakes, high-voltage suspense quite like Dodd (The Woman Who Couldn’t Scream, 2017), and her latest flawlessly written novel is another guaranteed keep-the-lights-on-late read. From the unforgettable heroine with a past to the incisively etched cast of secondary characters to the brilliantly imaginative plot, Dodd is at her most wildly entertaining, wickedly witty best.” — DEAD GIRL RUNNING Starred Review from Booklist, the official magazine for the American Library Association.

Thank you to all the librarians at the American Library Association in Denver for welcoming me so kindly! We chatted, I autographed 72 DEAD GIRL RUNNING advanced reading copies in 45 minutes, and gave out Cape Charade lavender sachets. We ran out of arcs except for the one last display copy. I visited the restroom and when I came back, a woman was standing there lamenting that she’d missed me. One of my team reached for the display copy. The other one said, “Christina Dodd is standing right behind you.” Of course, I hugged that darling woman for making me feel so good and I signed that last copy to her…
Also…bears. Yes, ALA is fun in many different ways!
Here are some of the photos from the signing. (Scroll down for me posing with the giant poster for DEAD GIRL RUNNING.)
I hope someday to sign a book for you, too! Just in case, here’s the current autographing schedule, with new events being added every week. There’s no telling where I’ll pop up — or who will be with me! (Hint: JAK and SEP.) You can keep an eye on the website or (better) join my newsletter! I’m incredibly chatty, tell silly jokes, and my big contest is coming up soon. Join!

THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM RT Book Reviews Award Finalist!
RT Book Reviews called THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM, “The payoff Kateri fans have been waiting for!” Now they’ve declared it on of six finalists for their 2017 Award! The review says, in part, “Remarkable storyteller Dodd returns for a new installment in her dangerously thrilling Virtue Falls series. In the previous books of the series, readers were treated to pieces of the amazing evolution of Kateri Kwinault, now the newly elected sheriff of Virtue Falls. This book is the payoff Kateri fans have been waiting for, as Dodd weaves together the story of two women who have faced death and come out stronger and more determined. This book is a fantastic blend of vengeance, mystery, passion and murder!” READ THE WHOLE REVIEW.
Here’s the whole list of finalists. Warning! Viewing this could ruin your book budget!
THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM is also one of Amazon’s Best Books of 2017, with a Library Journal starred review that called it, “Another stunner.” I’d keep bragging, but you know how modest I am… (Oh, stop laughing!) (If you really want to know, you can find more braggy tidbits in my newsletters and other news articles.)
Waiting for the paperback release? That will be March 27, and at that time, the ebook price will drop, too.
Thank you to everyone who has bought and enjoyed the whole Virtue Falls series. I’ve never had so many fabulous reviews, reader comments, and word of mouth, and I’m thrilled and excited that you’ve embraced the books so excitedly!
