Another amazing book. Extremely entertaining, captivating, and interesting read. I could not put it down. Wonderfully written with strong and intriguing characters. I want to read more from this author.
A great story
If you are looking for action, adventure, suspense, mystery, and a little romance look no farther than Christina Dodd’s What Doesn’t Kill Her. This book continues the story started in Dead Girl Running, but there’s enough of a back story that you could read it and not get lost. Kellen Adams is a very interesting character and you spend your time either wanting to shake her or hug her; her life has definitely not been an easy one.
I recommend that you pick up a copy of What Doesn’t Kill Her and go along for the ride.
Suspenseful thriller with heart
This Cape Charade series story charged forward from page one and did not let up until the final word - and with a cliffhanger, to boot. Suspenseful, thrilling, warm and loving, protection of family is key. The humorous, intelligent, and strong-willed seven-year-old daughter of Kellen and Max, Rae, does’t miss a thing. Her brain is a sponge, but in typical childlike fashion, her imaginative ways also breed trouble. The different settings are perfect for what happens. The dangerous terrain of the wilderness and the Olympic Mountains is the perfect setting for Kellen, Rae, and an artifact to be pursued. What better way to bond than to fiercely protect your own. Oregon’s Di Luca Winery has its beauty, but a killer is out there, always following Kellen. Yearning Sands Resort, on the North Pacific Coast in Washington has the beauty of the cliffs and ocean, Kellen’s best friends through the military, and the elder Di Lucas. It was wonderful having them brought into the action. Kellen, Max, and Rae are amazing characters that won’t stop at anything in order to protect one another. I can’t wait for the continuation of this well-written, thrilling series.
