Wrong Alibi the first book in Christina Dodd’s newest series Murder in Alaska.
I’m not sure what it is but I love books set in Alaska. I have been to Alaska only once and it was in the summer months, but it was stunning. I’ve always had this fantasy of moving up there and living in a snowed in cabin and just writing, reading, and ponding the biggest questions in life. Maybe one day.
When I had originally requested this book, I did so because murder mysteries are my bread and butter. I’ve also read a few other books by Christina Dodd and I knew I would enjoy this story.
Evie or Petie depending on when you knew her, has spent the last eight years living at a remote wilderness camp. But now the chance to clear her name is here and Evie sets out to unmask the man who so long again framed her for a double murder. Eight years ago Evie left her juvenile detention center with the promise of a book keeping job for Donald White. The only think is that White is keeping something from her, and she soon finds out that she’s been framed.
Thanks to some shady police work and White’s frame job, Evie is sentence to prison. She never makes it though as the bus carrying her is swept away in a mudslide. But White is back in the same town the murders occurring, and Evie will stop at nothing to protect her family and clear her name.
The switching between Evie and Petie’s names while make sense in the context of the story, really tangled me up for a second. However, if that’s the worst thing that I got from this book, than I would say that is a win.
Dodd has place quite a few red herrings within the pages of this story, and has painted such vivid descriptions of the characters, that I really cannot wait for the second book in the series to come out. Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys a solid thriller!
