  • Compelling and Engaging

    I thought that this was a really good book. The author crafts a compelling and engaging storyline that had me pushing past my bedtime in search of more answers. Suspenseful enough to keep you dancing on the edge and cerebral enough to give you moments to pause and ponder, this thriller just doesn't disappoint and will leave you eager to read book two in this new series. This is my volitional, frank review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Tense and thoughtful

    Petie had no luck. She was put in a juvenile detention center for something she didn't do because she had been part of a group that was arrested. We meet her as the story goes from present day back to her release from the detention center and to a new, promising job in Alaska. She goes from sunny California to frigid Alaska for a job that sounded perfect. But...is her job with Donald White really the perfect job? I didn't trust Donald. He has a house and a car in someone else's name and oodles of money, antiques, and investments. Donald was a problem Petie didn't need. The writing style in WRONG ALIBI pulled me in, and the storyline was excellent and different. This book is truly one you don’t want to miss because it touched so many emotions and will have you wondering how you would handle the situations Petie had to endure. It will also have you asking yourself if you really can trust the people in your life no matter who they are. I would call it a thriller with some tense moments that had me on edge, but I would also call it a thoughtful read. 5/5 This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  • Exciting, Dark, and So Right

    une 30 Received notice widget was ready. SO EXCITED! July 2 Book hasn’t downloaded on any of my devices. Sore head from banging against wall. July 3, 1 a.m. Fire and Kindle decides to either take widget out of hiding or to download. SO RELIEVED July 3, 1 a.m. I do my modified happy dance. (not nekkid, not in cul de sac) July 3, 1:05 a.m. Read from 1:05am to 3:30 am. Fall asleep 3 hours on couch, resume reading. WORTH STAYING UP ALL NIGHT to read. Nah, I wasn’t anxious to read Wrong Alibi. Not at all. I’ll warn y’all, I liked it, I really liked it. A naïve girl, former gang member, one who has decides to straighten herself out by getting a degree while in juvie. Nineteen years old, Evie Jones is so young, while being tragically old. Evie takes a job in Rockin, Alaska with a man named Donald White. Evie’s mom and sister are now living in Rockin. She hopes to eventually to contact them to show she has started to turn her life around. Instead she is framed for a heinous double murder, one that is brutal and unforgivable. In an incredibly lucky moment, at least for her, Evie escapes on her way to prison. Evie completes her escape by eventually landing at a remote, but luxurious wilderness camp. Besides her summer duties, Evie serves as the winter caretaker. During the long winter months, Evie learns new skill sets. For eight years, Evie searches on-line for the man, Donald White, who set her up, the man everyone insists does not exist. The man who makes her feel like a classic case of TSTL. Except Evie still exists, and is doing rather well; at least for someone hiding out in the extremes of the Alaska wilderness. Eventually Evie finds White at the worst possible place. All Evie cares about is getting to White. At the same time, others are gunning for Evie with hatred equal to anything Evie feels for White. First lesson learned in Wrong Alibi, know your friends, I mean really know them. Second lesson, nature isn’t really trying to kill you. It just seems that way if you aren’t paying attention. Third lesson learned, if it seems too good to be true, or if your spidey senses are tap dancing in your head, pay attention. But at the same time, mistakes don’t make you TSTL. Even if you do go into that basement, at least you aren’t wearing a flowing white nightgown. But then again, you are listening to a stuffed bear. Fourth lesson learned, revenge really is better served cold, or at least served in Alaska. This was a terrific book of revenge, redemption, and forgiveness. Dodd often writes morality tales, mixed in with her suspense, high adventure and chases. She hasn’t totally given up on romance, but the romance is usually smoothly incorporated into the story and is not a major feature. Some readers have found the sex and romance in Wrong Alibi jarring. Considering the characters and how they have lived I find it makes sense. With so many writers my eyes glaze when I start reading the florid descriptions of the setting. Not so with Dodd, she is not flowery. She is masterful. I purposely slow down to savor every bit about king salmon fishing, the mountains, and the unimaginable Alaska winters. I have paid particular attention to the settings in every one of Dodd’s books. I like to think I can figure out Dodd’s twists. Nope, once again she is several steps ahead of me, which helps keep her writing fresh. Evelyn, Evie, Petie, all the same woman, through the stages of her growth. She gets lucky and grows up; painful to watch the process, but a pleasure nonetheless. I also like that Evie is mixed race. It is mentioned, and then we move on. A special treat for readers of the Cape Charade series, two of the characters from that series have bigger roles in Wrong Alibi. This is the start of a new series. I see a few intriguing directions it could go with the secondary characters. And Nils. Of course there is Nils. Revenge is always such a treat for readers; we are certainly served our share. I won't say this story is as dark as an Alaska winter (not just because it would be too obvious) but it is darker than most of Dodd's books. Dodd was a well regarded romantic/suspense writer before she started leaning more heavily to the suspense side, resulting in the mighty fine series of Virtue Falls and Cape Charade. I really wouldn't miss those books. Looks like the Murder in Alaska series is going to be just as terrific. Thank you so much for a NetGalley ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. It’s not as if I didn’t warn you up front that I really liked this book.

  • A riveting read!

    Wrong Alibi by Christina Dodd is the beginning of The Alaskan Mystery series. I was eagerly anticipating reading this new suspense novel and I was not disappointed. The characters are multifaceted, and the plot is complex. Evelyn “Petie” Jones gets a chance to start over after serving time in a juvenile facility. She is eighteen with limited options. Evelyn is offered a job in Alaska and she takes it upon the advice of her counselor. Unfortunately, Evelyn trusts the wrong person and ends up accused of a double homicide along with embezzlement. Evelyn is convicted and sentenced to life in prison. A freak of nature allows Evelyn to escape and hide as Petie. She will never be free, though, until she finds the man who set her up and prove he committed the evil deeds she has been convicted of committing. Wrong Alibi is a captivating story. It is a page turner that is full of twists, turns, and surprises. I loved the intricate mystery as well as the action and tension. This was a fun whodunit. There are a variety of unique characters and I enjoyed the hint of paranormal. I am eager to read the next book in this exciting new series. Wrong Alibi is an stimulating story with a cunning con man, a unscrupulous sheriff, a deadly adversary, a cold climate, and a wrong woman.
