Reviews for Charlotte

Readers Like Charlotte! They really like her!!!

The Secret Life of Charlotte DoddI’ve been getting some awesome reviews for The Secret Life of Charlotte Dodd. Thanks to everyone who has read it and a special thanks for those who take the time to review. Reviews are so important to authors, especially indie authors like me without a big name brand behind us (yet! I’m getting there! :))

I am not one of of those authors who say they never read reviews. I read them all – rejoicing over the good ones and not enjoying the not so good ones. Not that there’s been too many bad ones, thank goodness!

Sidenote: do you know how difficult it is not to respond to a reviewer who posts something absolutely crazy about one of my books?

Here’s a lovely review I received from Linda of A Blessed Day:

Loved this book! I hope you like your books to start off with a Bang, right off the bat. 

This one does and I really liked that.  And the action just keeps right on coming. It rolls along at a pretty good clip.  I liked the way the author wrote this, we get to ride along with Charlotte as she tries to figure out what is going on.  She has lost so much of her memories and the reader doesn’t know anything at first either.  Kind of puts both of us on the same field as the story unfolds.  Who can you trust?  Who has another agenda?  What has Charlotte (Charlie or Lottie as her brothers call her) done?  What hasn’t she?  How can she even defend herself against any accusations, when she just doesn’t know?  

Early in the story I had some suspicions about 2 different people in the story. Are they up to something more sinister?  Only one of them was I right about but there was also many other surprises ahead.  And the deceit went so much deeper.  
What a great cast of characters that were included in the book.  I really liked both Charley and Ham.  Something that was fun to read was when normal everyday Charlotte suddenly whips out major skills when placed in danger.  It shocked her how much a part of her they were.  She often wondered,”Where did that come from?  It was like a superhero who suddenly found she had a new power. 
This story does end BUT,  I can see where it could continue with new adventures. The door was left open for that.   
One question I would like to see answered was..where is the disk with Charley memories prior to her wipe?  
By the way, I liked the short quotes at the beginning of each chapter.  Often so appropriate to the chapter. 
Btw…Charlotte’s memories will play a role in the sequel, which I’m working on now!!

The Secret Life of Charlotte Dodd is available print and ebook from Amazon, Kobo, B&N and IBooks (although I never seem to be able to find the link for it)

Virtual Tour: The Secret Life of Charlotte Dodd by Holly Kerr


Charlotte Dodd is having a bad day.

After taking an experimental drug to erase her memories of saving the world (or at least the country – several times) Charlotte is given a new life – a quiet, unassuming job, a second chance at love with Luke, and no one trying to kill her.

Two years later and with no recollection of saving the world, she steps in to help a random stranger and is amazed at the ease in which she dispatches her opponents using a rolled-up magazine. But how is that possible? She has Buffy-like fight moves, fires a gun with deadly accuracy and can use the air from car tires to keep breathing underwater.

When she meets Ham – why is he so familiar? The flashes, the déjà vu, the dreams – they’re not really dreams? Blowing up a building in Mexico, being buried alive – those things really happened to her? And what is her brother doing flying a plane? Turns out those two years of quiet with Luke was really an undercover mission to help bring down a secret organization targeting her family.

Charlotte needs to remember her secret life if she wants to save the world again and the only man she’s ever loved.

Absinthe Doesn’t Make the Heart Grow Fonder by Holly Kerr

What would you do for your friends?

What could be more fun than celebrating your fortieth with your three BFF’s?

Josie sets off with Lana, Poppy and Meredith for an evening celebrating her birthday with the best intentions. Dinner, dancing and a little drinking.

A little more drinking, in a few questionable locations. It’s good to catch up with the girls. But then…

Josie realizes her husband isn’t cheating on her, but Poppy won’t talk about the fact that her husband is. Lana won’t talk about her ex, Ted and Meredith is trying to hide something.

The secrets start to come out.

And then something bad happens.

Secrets can really ruin a friendship.

Author Bio:

Holly Kerr writes contemporary women’s fiction/chick-lit/romance and doesn’t particularly enjoy talking about herself in third person.

Her books include Coming Home, Unexpecting and Absinthe Doesn’t Make the Heart Grow Fonder. She lives in Toronto with her husband and three kids.  She doesn’t consider herself a typical chick-lit writer since loves everything about Star Wars, Harry Potter, Joss Whedon and has a thing for superheroes; however a story about falling for a superhero might be interesting for her to write. When she’s not writing, she likes to play in the dirt in her garden and enjoy a glass of wine while cooking, although she’s trying to cut back while she’s training for a marathon.

If you require more information about Holly and her books feel free to visit her website or follow her Blog. At times she discusses the craft of writing but usually she muses about her life and what’s she reading, writing or watching. Holly hopes you enjoy her books and she welcomes a chance to interact with her readers, but not in any creepy way. A simple comment “Hey, I really like/don’t like…” would be a lovely way to begin a conversation.
