REVIEW: What Doesn't Kill Her by Christina Dodd

One secret, one nightmare, one lie. You guess which is which.

1. I have the scar of a gunshot on my forehead.
2. I have willfully misrepresented my identity to the US military.
3. I'm the new mother of a seven-year-old girl.

Kellen Adams suffers from a yearlong gap in her memory. A bullet to the brain will cause that. But she's discovering the truth, and what she learns changes her life, her confidence, her very self. She finds herself in the wilderness, on the run, unprepared, her enemies unknown--and she is carrying a priceless burden she must protect at all costs. The consequences of failure would break her. And Kellen Adams does not break.

What doesn't kill her...had better start running.

Christina Dodd does it again! The next novel in the Cape Charade series brings back the fierce Kellen Adams as she tackles the biggest challenge of her life: motherhood.

Dead Girl Running left me screaming with excitement so I was more than eager to get my hands on What Doesn't Kill Her. Kellen moves in with Max di Luca on his vineyard in order to get to know her daughter. I was so happy to explore this aspect of Kellen's life because it was so unexpected and shocking. I'm still wrapping my head around it! Kellen went from believing she was just missing a year of her life and bad memories to recovering a slew of memories that include her life with Max, and his family, and learning she's a mother.

Motherhood doesn't fit naturally for Kellen so when a job opportunity comes along she snaps it up. Unfortunately, she didn't expect to be targeted and stuck in the mountains with a young charge. This story is full of excitement and adventure. I almost forgot I was reading a mystery because I was so focused on other elements of the story, like the fate of Kellen and Max's relationship or whether Kellen can learn to truly bond with her daughter.

I'm amazed at how this story has expanded and still retained the elements which initially drew me to the series. Kellen's story is unique an so unpredictable that I find myself wondering what could possibly be next. What Doesn't Kill Her is perfect for fans of Kat Martin!
