Book Review: Dead Girl Running

I have three confessions to make:
1. I've got the scar of gunshot on my forehead.
2. I don't remember an entire year of my life.
3. My name is Kellen Adams...and that's half a lie.

Girl running...from a year she can't remember, from a husband she prays is dead, from homelessness and fear. Tough, capable Kellen Adams takes a job as assistant manager of a remote vacation resort on the North Pacific Coast. There amid the towering storms and the lashing waves, she hopes to find sanctuary. But when she discovers a woman's dead and mutilated body, she's soon trying to keep her own secrets while investigating first one murder...then another. 

Now every guest and employee is a suspect. Every friendly face a mask. Every kind word a lie. Kellen's driven to defend her job, her friends and the place she's come to call home. Yet she wonders--with the scar of a gunshot on her forehead and amnesia that leaves her unsure of her own past--could the killer be staring her in the face?

I like Kellen.  She's tough and rebuilt her life after being abused.  I can really appreciate that as I had to do the same.  She learned how to protect herself and others so that she would never find herself back in that position. And now that she has found a place that she can call home, she is going to do her best to protect it also.

Great book!  It has more than a few mysteries that need to be solved along with danger, friendships that are questioned and even the possibility of love.  There is even more then one villain that needs to be discovered.  It's a wild and enjoyable ride that will keep you turning pages far past your bedtime all the way to the satisfying conclusion. 

I do recommend DEAD GIRL RUNNING to any of my readers who enjoy thrillers and/or romantic suspense.  There is a lot of violence in this book but no explicit sex as no emphasis was placed on romance.  I definitely plan on keeping up on this series because I like Kellen.
