Title: Wrong Alibi (Murder in Alaska #1)
Author: Christina Dodd
Stars: 3 1\2
Wrong Alibi is the beginning of a new series by Christina Dobb which means lots of characters are introduced while moving a story forward. The "twist and turns" work but at the same time readers will figure things out faster than the main characters due to the romance that is more distraction than helping more the story forward.
The story is over the top at the beginning but soon finds a flow that will engage readers.

Eighteen-year-old Evelyn Jones lands a job in small-town Alaska, working for a man in his isolated mountain home. But her bright hopes for the future are shattered when Donald White disappears, leaving her to face charges of theft, embezzlement—and a brutal double murder. Her protestations of innocence count for nothing. Convicted, she faces life in prison…until fate sends her on the run.
Evelyn’s escape leaves her scarred and in hiding, isolated from her family, working under an alias at a wilderness camp. Bent on vengeance, intent on recovering her life, she bides her time, patiently searching for the man who took everything from her.
At last, the day comes. Donald White has returned. Evelyn emerges from hiding; the fugitive becomes the hunter. But in her mind, she hears the whisper of other forces at work. Now Evelyn must untangle the threads of evidence before she’s once again found with blood on her hands: the blood of her own family…
About The Author:
When Christina’s first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?
Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before she was published.
