C.C. Harrison’s new novel, Running from Strangers, takes place in the Durango area, so it made sense to her to choose a location there to celebrate its release. The event will take place at the General Palmer Hotel hosted by manager Paula Nelson. Local bookseller, Maria’s Bookshop, is providing copies of Running from Strangers, and C.C.’s previous novel, The Charmstone for sale at the event, which is open to the public.
Running from Strangers is a fast-paced suspenseful search for the truth that sweeps the reader across the country to a secluded wild horse refuge and a trendy resort town in the Rocky Mountains. But there is no sanctuary from evil. Against the stunning backdrop of beautiful Southwest Colorado, courageous and engaging characters bring this story of love and survival to a terrifying conclusion. With never a dull moment, the page turning twisty plot surges toward an unforgettable and unexpected climax.
The Charmstone is set in Monument Valley, the wildest and most remote part of the Navajo Reservation. "JD Challenger is America's leading artist of Native Americans. The people in his paintings seem to speak to the viewer through their eyes if not their spirit," Harrison says. "Celebrating the debut of THE CHARMSTONE at the gallery seemed fitting, as the book is set in Monument Valley." (booksense)
