The novels are therefore stand alone reads and can be read in any order. In some way shape or form, the romance is complicated by some sort of criminal activity carried out by one or the other of the parties involved in the story. Right when she conceived the idea for the whole series, she knew what “Danger in a Red Dress” would be. She wanted to conclude the whole mystery of Nathan Manly and the stolen fortune, and do it with an epic family drama. It would have to include a gothic mansion, located on the wild Maine coast, and an antagonist that slid deeper into wickedness, and a long anticipated hero. The series is from the genre of contemporary romance suspense.
The series is tied loosely to “Lost Texas Heart” series, an earlier series that Christina wrote right before starting this one; like this series, it was also from the genre of contemporary romance suspense. That series began in the year 2003 and finished up in the year 2005. The series began in the year 2006, with the release of “Trouble in High Heels”. It lasted four books, with the final book being released in the year 2009, it was called “Danger in a Red Dress”. Books in the series were released one per year, from the start to its finish. There is also a novella that is a part of the series.
