Witty BECAUSE I’M WATCHING B&NReads Review!
“I’m a sucker for a broken man. Okay, not in real life. I mean, who actually wants a man who doesn’t shower and needs excessive amounts of therapy? However, in my fictional mind, like when reading Christina Dodd’s latest, Because I’m Watching, I adore a man who has been through things the average person cannot possibly imagine and needs the healing love and touch of a woman.” … I laughed out loud at this BECAUSE I’M WATCHING review by author Danielle Herzog from Barnes and Noble Reads. Because — isn’t that the truth? I have no desire to have a guy who is broken, but I do love to read them. And write them!
The review, titled, “Just Try to Put Down Christina Dodd’s BECAUSE I’M WATCHING: We Dare You,” was a pleasure to read and not merely because I’m the author. With quotes like, “Madeline is the ‘crazy’ neighbor across the street in the small town of Virtue Falls. And I don’t mean “crazy” as in zany and eclectic, I mean crazy as in ‘accused of murder and having witnessed the death of not only her roommates during college but also her fiancee years later'” and, “Together these two are an absolute train wreck. Or perhaps I should say, car wreck, considering they meet when Maddie drives her car into Jacob’s living room after falling asleep at the wheel,” Danielle gets right to the heart of the novel. Whether or not you’ve read BECAUSE I’M WATCHING, I hope you’ll click through to this review.

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT “Lord Brooding Conceited Arrogant” New Cover!
Kerrich stood behind her, so close Pamela could smell the fresh, rain-wash scent of his body and catch occasional hints of enveloping warmth. Using one hand to fend him off, she said, “You’re a rake. You’re proud of it.”
“Yes, I like women.”
“Too many women.”
“How many is too many?”
“More than one.” Daringly, she said what she’d always thought. “If a man was meant to have more than one lover, he would have more than one organ.”
He burst into laughter, a whole-hearted, generous laughter. “At a time,” he said. “One woman at a time.” — Buy RULES OF ENGAGEMENT with its “handsome” new cover for Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBooks, GooglePlay.

Guess who has a mistake on her new OBSESSION FALLS paperback cover?
Yes, it’s me. No, this isn’t as wonderful as the three-armed cover, but my publisher did send me a horrified email about the blunder on the newly-released OBSESSION FALLS paperback. I’ll give you a hint. Every letter on this cover should be part of an actual English word.
Can’t find it? Look on the spine on the top right under St. Martin’s Press. That is supposed to read NOVEL. Not MNUDK.
My agent asked if it was a three-armed MNUDK.
My husband very seriously explained MNUDK is the Klingon word for novel.
Do you have a funny thought about my OBSESSION FALLS MNUDK…er, novel? I’d love to hear it!

* From Bookbub: Books to Read If You Love Nora Roberts. “Why we recommend it (OBSESSION FALLS): If you’re a fan of Nora’s In Death series, you’ll delight in this tale of suspense by another master of the genre. Dodd delivers an engrossing mystery, a strong heroine, as well as revenge, suspense, and—of course—romance.”
* “That ending! Holy bleep! Still reeling over that!” —PJ Ausdenmore, reviewer for the Romance Dish, on letting me know she named OBSESSION FALLS one of her best books of 2015! Another honor for the quaint (and deadly) coastal town of Virtue Falls.
So far OBSESSION FALLS has:
* Library Journal: “Best of the Year.”
*BookPage: “Best of the Year.”
* Starred BookList review.”The plot’s twists and turns are handled with a positively Hitchcockian touch, while the brilliantly etched characters, polished writing, and unexpected flashes of sharp humor are pure Dodd.”
* BookPage Top Pick. “A spooky, nerve-stretching read that is sure to please Dodd’s many fans.”
* RT Reviews Top Pick. “The evolution of this heroine from everyday individual to relentless survivor adds an intensity that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”
* Starred Library Journal review. “A remarkable mesmerizing series.”
I love getting these honors! But it’s you who make my heart sing when you send me letters and talk to me online about the Virtue Falls series. Every time I hear from you, it’s a present. Thank you!
