    Really bad

    Sorry, but this book is very poorly written with a plot and characters and situations that are just too unbelievable and make no sense. Character’s intelligence, personality and actions vary according to the needs of the plot rather than having consistent characters that behave in a realistic and believable manner.

    Great ending to the Cape Charade Series

    When we last left Kellen she was recovering from brain surgery, although it was touch and go for a while. A psychopath with a vendetta, Mara Philippi, has escaped a maximum security facility for the criminally insane. This psychopath has targeted Kellen, her husband Max, and their daughter Rae. Moving to an island off the Northern California coast, the family feels like they're safe for now, and are awaiting confirmation that Mara has been captured. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen and the family is in more danger than they know! What a great read. I've been engrossed in this series from the beginning and have been anxiously awaiting this final chapter in the saga. Idyllic picnics, bike riding, fresh air and sunshine, are overshadowed by murder, mayhem, possible ghosts, terror, and storms. The climactic scene between Kellen and Mara was wonderfully written and thought out. Finding and reading the diary of Rose, the daughter of the family who built the house on the island was perfect. The addition of this story within the story was masterful. Without that, who would have triumphed? This is the final book (oh please I hope not...at least a short story to tie down the loose ends) of the Cape Charade series. I think reading all the books in this series in order helps with the enjoyment of the whole story line. You could read Strangers She Knows without reading the first two full length novels, since there is some backstory in this book, but I think your reading pleasure would be enhanced by reading them in order.

    Explosive finale to Cape Charade series

    Strangers She Knows by Christina Dodd is the third book in Cape Charade series. Each book in this fast paced series can be read on its own since the author provides a recap (just enough to catch you up, but not too much as to spoil the other books in the series for new readers). Kellen Adams Di Luca has gone through so much in the last few years. She is denied her wedding night and honeymoon when the bullet in her brain shifts requiring immediate surgery. Kellen does survive the surgery, but she has a long recovery. She returns home still weak and with one hand that is refusing to cooperate. The therapist recommends piano lessons which is torture for Kellen and everyone else in the family including Luna, Rae’s dog (everyone’s a critic). When Mara resurfaces and is determined to get revenge, Kellen is not strong enough to go after her on her own. The family moves to the remote Isla Paraiso with a cook, Olympia Paolerio and the two islands caretakers, Jamie and Dylan Conkle. The family explores the island thanks to the three bikes Max had shipped in for them and they get reacquainted. The pacing in the first half is more laid back (feel the island vibe) with the second half ramped up like a person after drinking three espressos in a row. Kellen is trying to survive a maniacal killer. You can feel the suspense, tension and pain. Rae is still her fearless and intelligent self but now puberty is hitting (her poor parents). She manages to get into scrapes even on an island. I like how Rae is still a young girl at times who needs her parents. Max and Kellen are just beginning their marriage and they have no privacy. They are learning each other’s quirks and foibles. It was interesting to learn more about Mara. She is a complex woman and her upbringing explains a lot. I really enjoyed the addition of Ruby’s diary. I thought it enhanced the story as added depth and interest plus gives us a second mystery. I enjoyed the various references to Harry Potter and Hogwarts. Strangers She Knows is one of those books that you will not be able to put down. I am sorry to see the Cape Charade series come to an end. Strangers She Knows is a riveting suspense with a mad murderer, a temperamental tween, a remote refuge, panicked parents and an explosive ending.

    Thrilling Finale to an excellent Series

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. Strangers She Knows by Christina Dodd is the final chapter in her thrilling Cape Charade series. I do think that it would be best to read the entire series in order as it follows the main character Kellen Adams through a series of hair raising adventures. This story will make more sense to you if you have read the others and they are all very good. In this book Kellen and her husband Max Di Luca and their daughter Rae are hiding out on an isolated island off the California coast until such time as the authorities re-capture Mara Philippi an escaped serial killer who has promised to take everything away from Kellen the way she feels Kellen took. everything away from her. The old mansion on the island has an unhappy history and the isolation and atmosphere seems to have a disturbing affect on the mental health of the current caretakers of the island. With a dangerous storm moving in, echos of the past seeming to haunt the present and the knowledge that Mara is on her way as the authorities seem unable stop her this book will keep you trepidly turning the pages way past your bedtime.
