Can you hide a secret with the whole world watching?
When an explosion rips apart a Chicago building, the lives of three women are forever altered.
A year later, Cecily is in mourning. She was supposed to be in the building that day. Instead, she stood on the street and witnessed it going down, with her husband and best friend inside. Kate, now living thousands of miles away, fled the disaster and is hoping that her past won’t catch up with her. And Franny, a young woman in search of her birth mother, watched the horror unfold on the morning news, knowing that the woman she was so desperate to reconnect with was in the building.
Now, despite the marks left by the tragedy, they all seem safe. But as its anniversary dominates the media, the memories of that terrifying morning become dangerous triggers. All these women are guarding important secrets. Just how far will they go to keep them? (From Goodreads)
Thank You to Amazon Publishing/Lake Union Publishing for the E-ARC of this book for free, in exchange of an Honest review.
I have previously reviewed Catherine’s books Fractured, and The Murder Club, and they were both so good. So when I saw she was writing another book, and that it was up on Netgalley, I had to request it immediately.
This was even better than the previous books I have read. I love Catherine McKenzie’s writing style and the twists and turns she puts into her books, it’s not just one or two of them, they are placed throughout the book. Which makes for an enthralling read, one that could be considered unputdownable.
Three woman, all so completely different. I loved one of them, hated one, and the other I just couldn’t understand. (If there was one complaint I have, it’s that I wish I knew why, she was the way she was. There really isn’t much back-story to her. So I didn’t get why she felt the way she did, and why she made certain life choices).
When it comes to the ending of the book, I felt it was done well. It did however leave off on a little cliffhanger, which makes me think sequel?
Have you read any Catherine McKenzie books? If so, which one was your favorite?
