“You can never go wrong with a Catherine McKenzie novel. Consistently superb suspense that doesn’t disappoint. Stunning!” —J.T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author of Tear Me Apart and Lie to Me
"With twists and turns, the lives of three women intersect in the most unexpected ways during the aftermath of a tragedy. Thought-provoking, suspenseful, and mysterious, The Good Liar is a true page-turner that explores the ways stories are connected and created, and what can be hidden underneath. This is a book you won’t be able to put down!" —Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author of All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger
“A contentious past leads a young couple to move thousands of miles from home to an exemplary family community when things go terribly wrong in Catherine McKenzie’s latest tour de force, Fractured. When tragedy strikes, everyone is a suspect...A tightly drawn narrative that begs the question: How much can we really know about those living closest to us? Truly riveting!” —Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl and Pretty Baby
“SMOKE is an exquisitely composed portrait of people in an extreme situation, navigating the metaphorical fires they’ve created and a literal one they need to contain. I fell in love with these shades-of-gray characters and their authentically portrayed need for change and relief. Commercial fiction at its finest.“ —Therese Walsh, author of The Last Will of Moira Leahy and The Moon Sisters
“Catherine McKenzie’s latest book may be her finest. HIDDEN explores the intersecting lives of a man, his wife, and a woman who may or may not be his mistress. Imaginatively constructed, filled with nail-biting tension and gracefully written, HIDDEN is a winner.” — Sarah Pekkanen, bestselling author of These Girls and Skipping a Beat
“McKenzie has created a charming character in Emma, witty, extraordinarily level-headed, and blessed with grace under fire in the most trying of circumstances. Forgotten is the story of one young women’s life, broken down, reconstructed, and forever altered. It is an endearing story of discovery and transformation and the importance of turning lemons into lemonade.” — Booklist
“McKenzie makes an on-a-whim marriage seem like a good idea. Even more impressive is the way she makes the relationship between the heroine and (spoiler alert!) the hero believably difficult and charmingly real. If you’re not rooting for Anne’s happy ending, you must not believe in love. Fans of Jennifer Weiner and Jennifer Crusie have found a new author to watch.” — Booklist starred review
“With McKenzie’s engaging debut, you’ll be up late rooting for the loveable and broken Kate Sandford as she stumbles her way towards sobriety by way of a bit of tabloid journalism. Spin is honest, funny, and fresh.” — Julie Buxbaum, author of The Opposite of Love and After You
