Spotlight and Giveaway: The Good Liar

Today we're celebrating the publication of Catherine McKenzie's latest novel, The Good Liar (reviewed here). Kathleen Carter Communications has TWO copies to give away!

In internationally bestselling and critically acclaimed novelist Catherine McKenzie’s riveting and thought-provoking new novel, THE GOOD LIAR (Lake Union Publishing), the lives of three women are forever altered by a national tragedy—and by the choices made in its wake.

A year ago, Cecily Grayson became the poster child for a horrifying explosion that ripped a Chicago building apart. 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, Kaitlyn, inside. While she watched, a photographer snapped a photo of her—a photo that would become one of the enduring images from that day.

Franny Maycombe, 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. As the anniversary dominates the media, the memories of that horrifying morning become dangerous triggers. 

A thousand miles away in Montreal, a third woman, Kate Ring, is working as a nanny for a wealthy family. Haunted by the anniversary of the Chicago explosion, Kate fights to keep her past from catching up with her. 

All three women are guarding important secrets. Just how far will they go to keep them?

“A riveting story that revolves around the aftermath of a national tragedy: three women, three separate yet deftly intertwined lives. I adored the look at the story behind the story, the background lives of the women we so often see in the news. The twists are shocking, the characters are well drawn but unpredictable, and the conclusion is as poignant as it is surprising. THE GOOD LIAR is thrilling, captivating, and not to be missed!”
—Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Year and The Blackbird Season

“Lines will be crossed and secrets revealed when tragedy intersects three women in THE GOOD LIAR, a guilty pleasure you won’t be able to put down until the very last page. A must read!”
—Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, authors of The Good Widow

“In her latest, Catherine McKenzie continues to prove she’s a master at crafting psychological thrillers. In THE GOOD LIAR, we follow three women—Cecily, Kate, and Franny—in the aftermath of a horrific tragedy through their web of lies, secrets, and deceit. The story is layered with superb twists and expert pacing, deftly building in suspense until its stunner of an ending. A compulsive read that kept me guessing!”
—Kerry Lonsdale, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Everything We Left Behind
and Everything We Keep

I try not to lie because when you do it is hard to remember what you’ve lied about and it just gets you into more trouble. Learned this early as a kid. Besides, I think it’s very hard to live with yourself. And that’s the truth!
