June 21, 2022
From New York Times bestselling author Christina Dodd comes a brand new, standalone suspense about a reclusive artist who retrieves a seemingly dead woman from the Pacific Ocean…only to have her come back to life with no memory of what happened to her. With a strong female protagonist, a chilling villain, and twisty secrets that will keep you turning the pages. Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, Karin Slaughter and Sandra Brown, POINT LAST SEEN, will have readers keeping the lights on all night.
LIFE LAST SEEN
When you’ve already died, there should be nothing left to fear… When Adam Ramsdell pulls Elle’s half-frozen body from the surf on a lonely California beach, she has no memory of what her full name is and how she got those bruises ringing her throat.
GIRL LAST SEEN
Elle finds refuge in Adam’s home on the edge of Gothic, a remote village located between the steep lonely mountains and the raging Pacific Ocean. As flashes of her memory return, Elle faces a terrible truth—buried in her mind lurks a secret so dark it could get her killed.
POINT LAST SEEN
Everyone in Gothic seems to hide a dark past. Even Adam knows more than he will admit. Until Elle can unravel the truth, she doesn’t know who to trust, when to run and who else might be hurt when the killer who stalks her nightmares appears to finish what he started…
The previous works of the author that I’ve read were domestic suspense, so this was a change. We have Adam save Elle from the Pacific Ocean. He’s running from his past and she has no memory of hers. They are quite the team and I found myself rooting for them from the start. Set in a small beach side town with unique characters, I was drawn into all the secrets. Your side characters include a grumpy old man, a psychic and an actress. All of which you root to see more of.
You get a little bit of romance along with a lot of intrigue as you wind your way through the layers of this one. This one reminded me a little of the romantic suspense I used to read but with a much more complicated plot. As someone starts shooting at Adam and Elle, I liked that I was guessing about the reason in addition to who it was.
It looks like the start of a series and I can’t wait to return to Gothic.
