3. My new daughter is growing up too fast–and she’s in the line of fire.

STRANGERS SHE KNOWS Starred Review!

STRANGERS SHE KNOWS got a *starred* Booklist review. Booklist is the official magazine of the American Library Association, and this is huge!

“Dodd at her brilliant best!”

Also, if you think I’ve bragged about this before, you’re right. ALL THREE CAPE CHARADE FULL LENGTH BOOKS GOT STARRED REVIEWS!!!

Sorry for shouting. I’m a little excited. A few quotes from the STRANGERS SHE KNOWS review:

“Dodd continues her addictively readable Cape Charade series featuring Kellen Adams with another white-knuckle tale that simply begs to be inhaled in one sitting.”

“A fascinating island setting that includes a spooky mansion, a secondary storyline involving World War II, and an antagonist who could give Villanelle from Killing Eve a pointer or two.”

“Dodd at her brilliant best.” 

STRANGERS SHE KNOWS hits the shelves and your eReader on September 17.

THREE SUSPENSE SHORT STORIES IN AUDIO

STRANGERS SHE KNOWS

One last thing: When I was writing WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER , I asked on social media what a seven-year-old girl would pack to go on a trip. The answers were hilarious, and every item Rae has in her bag is a reader suggestion. 

“Did you bring extra socks?”
Rae tilted her head and viewed Kellen as if she was crazy.
“Underwear? Clothes? Toothbrush?”
“My Halloween costume!” Rae leaped to her feet. “I’m going as Luna Lovegood!”
That explained the great mop of blond hair in the bag. Rae hadn’t scalped someone. She was channeling her inner Harry Potter.

Heh, heh. I love when I’m able to tap into my readers’ knowledge and use that to make my books funny and real. Thank you for all your help!

Share Our Solstice Celebration!

You know about our stone circle and that The Husband and I (and family if they’re around) go out to greet the dawn on the summer solstice. Because we live in NW Washington, sometimes we have to be patient before the morning skies clear enough for us to see the sun rise. In fact, this year, we celebrated on June 25th. It was lovely as always and well worth the wait. I filmed a video to share with you (19 seconds); the sun is coming through the trees and between the two key stones, and The Husband steps in to throw a bundle of lavender on the fire. Enjoy this special moment with us!

20 Best Romantic Suspense Novels!

If you’re a suspense reader, here’s the Booklist 20 Best Romantic Suspense Novels! Kiss Me or Kill Me includes authors I know—Karen Robards, Jayne Ann Krentz, Karen Rose, Catherine Coulter, Nora Roberts and (ahem) Christina Dodd’s VIRTUE FALLS—but I found some new names and titles. I love these lists and can’t wait to dig in!

The Kiss Me or Kill Me entry for VIRTUE FALLS says:
After growing up believing that her father was responsible for murdering her mother 20 years earlier, Elizabeth returns home to Virtue Falls in search of the truth only to find she has put herself in the sights of the real killer. Over the course of her long and impressive literary career, RITA Award-winning Dodd has written historical, contemporary, and paranormal romances but now focuses on edgy and sexy suspense stories.
