Description from Publisher:
Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, New York Times bestselling author Christina Dodd delivers an all-new thriller, featuring a bold and brash female protagonist.
Eighteen-year-old Evelyn Jones lands a job in small-town Alaska, working for a man in his isolated mountain home. But her bright hopes for the future are shattered when Donald White disappears, leaving her to face charges of theft, embezzlement—and a brutal double murder. Her protestations of innocence count for nothing. Convicted, she faces life in prison…until fate sends her on the run.
Evie's escape leaves her scarred and in hiding, isolated from her family, working under an alias at a wilderness camp. Bent on justice, intent on recovering her life, she searches for the killer who slaughters without remorse.
At last, the day comes. Donald White has returned. Evie emerges from hiding; the fugitive becomes the hunter. But in her mind, she hears the whisper of other forces at work. Now Evelyn must untangle the threads of evidence before she’s once again found with blood on her hands: the blood of her own family…
“This is Dodd at her brilliant best.” —Booklist (starred review) on Strangers She Knows
Dodd's twisty suspense will have readers turning the pages and keeping the lights on at night.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!
The opening pages hooked me right away, and I started reading faster to find out what was going to happen. I loved the setting of Alaska.
There were only a couple of things that bothered me. There were a lot of switches in the points-of-view, and . . .
. . . the sex between Zone and Petie was hard to buy into.
Other than that, I LOVED this book!!
Christina Dodd masterfully brought all the pieces together for a very satisfying resolution.
Some of my favorite lines from the story:
"Outside, the storm roared. Inside, cold swallowed the heat with a greedy appetite."
"So much better than her last job, the one that led to her conviction for a gruesome double murder."
[I received an early copy of the book for free from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.]
