Shannon's Pick: Dead Girl Running by Christina Dodd



Dead Girl Running is the first in a series, Cape Charade, by Christina Dodd. Ms. Dodd has been a favorite author of mine for years, and with this new military series, she did not disappoint.


I have three confessions to make:

1. I’ve got the scar of a gunshot on my forehead. 2. I don’t remember an entire year of my life. 3. My name is Kellen Adams…and that’s half a lie.


Girl running… from a year she can’t remember, from a husband she prays is dead, from homelessness and fear. Tough, capable Kellen Adams takes a job as assistant manager of a remote vacation resort on the North Pacific Coast. There amid the towering storms and the lashing waves, she hopes to find sanctuary. But when she discovers a woman’s dead and mutilated body, she’s soon trying to keep her own secrets while investigating first one murder… then another.


Now every guest and employee is a suspect. Every friendly face a mask. Every kind word a lie. Kellen’s driven to defend her job, her friends and the place she’s come to call home. Yet she wonders–with the scar of a gunshot on her forehead and amnesia that leaves her unsure of her own past–could the killer be staring her in the face?
