VIRTUE FALLS, Coming September 9, 2014

by Christina Dodd | Genre: SuspenceVirtue Falls Series

VIRTUE FALLS (September 9) is a true suspense set on the storm-tossed Pacific coast of Washington state. To build Virtue Falls, I drew on my experiences in small town, Idaho, my years in Texas where big personalities abound, my current life in Washington state where eccentrics are the norm, and my childhood in California and my warm relationship with my mom. If Virtue Falls had a motto, it would be:

Welcome to Virtue Falls, Washington:
home for free spirits, destination for vacationing tourists, haven for secrets…and a magnet for murder.

JUST THE WAY YOU ARE: Lost Hearts #1, On Sale Now

by Christina Dodd | Genre: Lost Hearts SeriesRomantic Suspense

Mystery and misery scar their young lives.
Three sisters and their foster brother are torn apart by tragedy
and scattered across the country to grow up alone…

Hope Prescott lives in Boston, far from the warm, southern home she recalls. She works hard with one goal in mind—finding her long-lost siblings. Yet her job at the answering service and her own loving nature creates a family of friends, people she knows only by their voices. She especially likes Griswald, gruff old butler for mysterious, wealthy Zack Givens.

Meeting Griswald is a shock; he is neither gruff nor old, but a powerful, handsome man. In fact, he is Zack Givens, mysterious, cold, heartless—and charmed by the artless young woman who brings him chicken soup, treats him like a friend…and falls in love with the humble man she imagines him to be. When she discovers Zack’s secret and faces his betrayal, she leaves without a backward glance. Can Zack solve the mystery that haunts Hope’s past to prove their futures lie together?
