"Another stunner." -- Library Journal Starred Review

Merida Falcon is a world-class beauty, a trophy wife who seems to have it all…except she has no voice.

 

For nine bitter years, Merida lived to serve her wealthy elderly husband, never leaving his side, always doing his bidding…

 

On his death, Merida vanishes…and reappears in Virtue Falls with a new name, a new look, and a plot to take revenge on the man who loved her, betrayed her and walked away, leaving her silent, abused and bound to an old man's obsession.

 

But Merida faces challenges. Her school friend Kateri Kwinault is the newly elected sheriff of Virtue Falls. A chance meeting with her former lover intrigues him and brings him on the hunt for her, and meeting him face to face shakes her convictions. Will she have time to discover the truth about the events that occurred nine years ago? For someone in Virtue Falls is stalking women and slashing them…to death.

 

Danger closes in. Merida's fears build. There’s no one to turn to…no one she dares to trust. And she has to wonder—who is the killer stalking? Is he trying to silence forever THE WOMAN WHO COULDN'T SCREAM?

About the Author

 

Readers become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. She reads everything, but because she loves humor, she likes romance best.

A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love.

 

A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear. So when Christina’s first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?

 

Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published. In the twenty-six years since, her novels have been translated into 25 languages, won Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart and RITA Awards and been called the year’s best by Library Journal and Booklist. Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina.)

 

With more than 15 million of her books in print, Booklist praises her, “brilliantly etched characters, polished writing, and unexpected flashes of sharp humor that are pure Dodd.”

 

In 2017, Christina continues her suspense series, Virtue Falls, with the heartbreaking, funny, terrifying novel, BECAUSE I’M WATCHING, now in paperback and the #1 Romance on Amazon and with starred reviews from Booklist, Library Journal, and Kirkus. Order BECAUSE I’M WATCHING from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Katy Books, IndieBound, Books-A-Million or in eBook from Kindle, Nook, iBooks and Kobo.

 

In August, THE WATCHER, a new Virtue Falls short story, comes out in eBook for everyone!

 

On September 5, “Tension builds and suspicion shifts with breakneck speed” (Publishers’ Weekly) as THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM, the fourth full-length thriller in the Virtue Falls series, arrives on your eReader and in your bookstores.  Read More
