When Captain Kellen Adams receives a job offer that sounds too good to be true, she finds herself balanced between fascination and fear. All she has to do is break a code and find a long-lost fortune…or die trying.

New York Times bestselling author Christina Dodd kicks off her Cape Charade suspense series with Hard to Kill, a short story of treasure, treachery…and murder.


Captain Kellen Adams thought her life was going to be up in arms, but she gets a great job. If she can crack a code, she can amass a fortune. Or, she could get killed. Hard to Kill is the first book, a novella actually, in the Cape Charade series, and it is where we meet Kellen for the first time.

This is a great prequel. Suffice it to say that when I got one of the books in the series, Families and Other Enemies for review, I had no doubt that getting the previous books was an absolute must. I moved right onto the first book in this series, Dead Girl Running, where Kellen gets her job at the Yearning Sands Resort.

The next books in the series are What Doesn't Kill Her (2018), and Hidden Truths and Strangers She Knows, both set for release later in 2019.  


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?
