Spotlight and Giveaway: Six Weeks to Live

Today we are excited to feature Catherine McKenzie's latest mystery/thriller, Six Weeks to Live. Melissa has it in her TBR and looks forward to reading it soon. Thanks to Atria, we have THREE copies to give away!

Jennifer Barnes never expected the shocking news she received at a routine doctor’s appointment: she has a terminal brain tumor—and only six weeks left to live.

While stunned by the diagnosis, the forty-eight-year-old mother decides to spend what little time she has left with her family—her adult triplets and twin grandsons—close by her side. But when she realizes she was possibly poisoned a year earlier, she’s determined to discover who might have tried to get rid of her before she’s gone for good.

Separated from her husband and with a contentious divorce in progress, Jennifer focuses her suspicions on her soon-to-be ex. Meanwhile, her daughters are each processing the news differently. Calm medical student Emily is there for whatever Jennifer needs. Moody scientist Aline, who keeps her mother at arm’s length, nonetheless agrees to help with the investigation. Even imprudent Miranda, who has recently had to move back home, is being unusually solicitous.

But with her daughters doubting her campaign against their father, Jennifer can’t help but wonder if the poisoning is all in her head—or if there’s someone else who wanted her dead.

"In Six Weeks to Live, her eleventh novel, Catherine McKenzie masterfully spins an exceptional story that is darkly  funny, poignant, and grippingly suspenseful. A fresh take on the who-done-it, this addictive novel will both tug at  your heart strings and make you frantically flip the pages to unlock the key to the mystery. A mesmerizing read!" 
—Samantha M. Bailey, bestselling author of Woman on the Edge 

"Six Weeks to Live begins with a gut-punch of an opener: a poisoning with a fatal diagnosis, a woman with a mere  six weeks to find the killer. Grief, secrets, revenge, guilt and blame—McKenzie weaves them all with a deft hand,  turning up the heat with every chapter. A gripping page-turner that held me captive until the shocking end.” 
—Kimberly Belle, bestselling author of The Stranger in the Lake and Dear Wife 

"A smart, gripping, twisted story of dark family secrets. Six Weeks to Live will have readers feverishly turning pages  until the final jaw-dropping conclusion." 
—Robyn Harding, #1 bestselling author of The Swap

Such a big Catherine McKenzie fan - hard to pick a favourite. Maybe "Hidden" or "Forgotten" but honestly you can't go wrong with any of them!
