Earlier STRANGERS SHE KNOWS Pub Date!

Great news for you, my dear readers! My publisher has moved the grand finale of Cape Charade thriller series, STRANGERS SHE KNOWS, forward by three weeks to September 17!

I have three deadly problems:
1. I’ve seriously offended a maniacal killer.
2. I just had a bullet removed from my brain.
3. My new daughter is growing up too fast—and she’s in the line of fire.

Living on an obscure, technology-free island off California means safety from the murderer who hunts Kellen Adams and her new family.… Or does it? Family time becomes terror-time, and at last, alone, Kellen faces a killer playing a cruel game. Only one can survive, and Kellen knows who must win…and who must die.

STRANGERS SHE KNOWS, coming September 17 in hardcover, trade paperback, audio and ebook. Join my mailing list now for book updates and a free short story, THE WATCHER!

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.

WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER out now!

A writer-friend asked me that horrible question, “What’s your new book about?” I told her WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER is a thriller. And it’s a comedy. It’s about survival against all odds. And it’s about learning to be a parent. She started to make that humming sound that meant she wanted to tell me I’d lost my mind.

…Okay, she was snoring.

In a panic, I told her WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER is a mash-up between the National Lampoons Vacation movies and The

Ritter listens to WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER in audio!

Fugitive. That got her attention.

Because anyone who’s been a parent or taken care of a child will tell you—no matter how dangerous or difficult the circumstances, a seven-year-old can’t be quiet, they can’t sit still, and they always gotta go potty.

Let’s say you’re Kellen Adams. You take a security job. You’re double-crossed. You find yourself in the wilderness, on the run, unprepared, your enemies unknown. Then, oh no, you discover your new seven-year-old daughter has tagged along to bond. What are you going to do? The consequences of failure would break you. And Kellen Adams does not break.

What doesn’t kill her…had better start running.

“Dodd’s gripping voice will appeal to fans of Sandra Brown, Nora Roberts, Linda Howard & Jayne Ann Krentz.”– Mystery Tribune Review of WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER

Happy New Year, FAMILIES AND OTHER ENEMIES!

It’s January, the start of a New Year (2019!), that time when you look around at your family and think…Holy cow, I’m tired of you people.

Maybe that’s just me. I love my husband and kids, but in the last months there’s been a lot of togetherness and eventually the bonds of kinship wear thin. Yes, yes, I do know they’re all tired of me, too. That’s why I think you’ll love FAMILIES AND OTHER ENEMIES, a Cape Charade e-novella about family and how challenging and downright scary relationships can be.

I hope you enjoy FAMILIES AND OTHER ENEMIES, that you’re looking forward to the January 29 release of WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER, and that you enjoy a prosperous, healthy, peaceful and full-of-books 2019!

You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your family.

That’s one of those interesting universal truths that gets quoted a lot in the Army on overseas assignments. Because everyone misses their family. But it’s not their family who has their back, who will be with them under fire and volunteer to help them scout out the enemy. Friends, comrades-in-arms—in combat, they have greater impact than family. They become more to you than your blood kin.

You get back home, and your family, the people who knew you growing up, are aliens to you because they never experienced what you experienced, likely never fired an automatic weapon, never lobbed a grenade, never took on enemy fire on a cold, dark road in the Afghan mountains. They don’t understand why you flinch when the campfire pops or stay awake all night to avoid confronting the nightmares.

Most of the time, they don’t want to know. They want to tell you about the harrowing time they were barreling down a ski slope and broke a ski, or someone backed into them in the Safeway parking lot and their insurance got stuck for it, or they dropped a boulder on Grandpa’s fledgling walnut tree and it lived, anyway. They think they’re sharing the kinds of ordeals a soldier faces in combat. Bless their hearts.

Take me. I’m Kellen Adams. When I came back to the States after six years in the Army, I had one living relative I hadn’t seen for eight years, and I had no desire to go see Aunt Cora Rae. For one thing…

I hate to start this so soon, but this is where it gets complicated. — from FAMILIES AND OTHER ENEMIES, a new Cape Charade e-novella, set in Virtue Falls. Sheriff Kateri Kwinault makes an appearance!

You remember the original trade paperback cover; gray and yellow, with a woman’s still figure looking out to the horizon. In the larger format, the image was effective, but think about a rack of mass market suspense in your local grocery store; it’s a mad jumble of colors and words.

My publisher wanted a cover change that would catch the eye and appeal to a new group of readers. In this video I show both covers and explain the differences.
