On October 10th at 10 am a building exploded that killed over 500 hundred people. Let's spring forward a year and "Triple Ten" is all over the media being remembered again.

    This is my second read by Catherine McKenzie and man did I enjoy this book! First, let me just comment on the cover. So gorgeous!!

    This one is a twisty and edgy story about secrets, lies, and betrayal that come to life surrounding the lives of three women that are connected. On October 10th at 10 am a building exploded that killed over 500 hundred people. Let's spring forward a year and "Triple Ten" is all over the media being remembered again.

    The Good Liar is a strong character driven novel about three women Cecily, Franny, and Kaitlyn that have been impacted in different ways from the Triple Ten tragedy. The story is told alternating from the three women's perspectives and each story is slowly unfolded at the seams. But, it's never that simple is it? Who is telling the truth?! Who is possibly the "good liar?"

    McKenzie does a fantastic job with her characterization. Her previous novel, Fractured, I thoroughly enjoyed and once again her skills/depth of writing is just flawless in this one.

    Compulsive, addicting, twists, turns, drama.... what more can you ask for?! And, just how I like my novels... that last little twist McKenzie sprinkled on the top of the cupcake was AHHHHMAZZZING.

    Pre-order this one ladies and gents! I promise you will not be disappointed. Highly highly recommend this addicting novel.

    4.5 stars!! :).

    Thank you so much to Netgalley, Catherine McKenzie, and Lake Union Publishing for an advanced arc in exchange for a honest review.

    Expected publication date: 4/3/18.

    Five shining stars!!

    Now that’s what I call a thriller! This one had me hooked from the first page, and it took every bit of willpower not to devour it in one sitting. After all, this was a traveling sister read...but I had a hard time waiting for my sisters to catch up to me!

    October 10th. The day everything drastically changed for 3 women in Chicago, all tied to one horrid event. One thrust into the limelight, one forcing herself into the limelight and the third crouching into the shadows.

    October 10th. The day everything drastically changed for 3 women in Chicago, all tied to one horrid event. One thrust into the limelight, one forcing herself into the limelight and the third crouching into the shadows.

    A documentary crew wants to research the events of that fateful day. As they dig deeper, secrets and lies bubble to the surface. So whose lies are told for protecting their own interests? And whose are to protect the ones they love?

    Sometimes you read a book and it immediately clicks. As is the case with most avid readers, I was on edge that the ending would be a letdown. I can happily report it remained as good as the rest of the book! Highly recommend to all thriller fans!

    This one is going straight onto my favorite’s shelf!

    Thank you to NetGalley, Lake Union Publishing and Katherine McKenzie

    There are three characters, each telling their story. There is Cecily, Kate, and Franny. The big question is out of three, which one is the good liar. There are lots of secrets in this story. All of these woman are guarding important secrets. Just how far will they go to keep them. There is an awful tragedy. An explosion rips apart a Chicago building and the lives of these three woman are forever altered and each character tells their story of the tragedy. The memories of that terrifying morning become dangerous triggers.

    This is a great psychological thriller. This one kept me guessing till the very end. The beginning had so much going on and I was so intrigued. I had so many questions. I was hooked and kept turning the pages looking for the answers to my questions. This was a Traveling Sister's read and we all were intrigued. It was a great discussion and I had fun reading each others thoughts. It was a very fun read. This book was a fast paced read but at the same time, I found myself lost and confused and had to go back and reread it. Some of the twists happen fast and that's why I would have to reread it. I had to slow

    down to get all the pieces of the three characters stories. I couldn't read it with a lot of distractions. I mainly read this at night when my husband was asleep.

    I didn't know who I could trust in this story. Some of the twists were shocking. This one was like a jigsaw puzzle. All the clues are there, but you have to sort them out and find where the pieces of this story belong. I did find one part of the story unrealistic but that was fine for me because I loved everything else about this story. This is a character driven novel. I really got to know each character very well.

    I did find some parts of the story predictable, but I loved the ending, and it ended just the way I wanted it too, which doesn't happen. I found this book to be very addicting and loved the jaw dropping moments.

    I recommend this book to those that love a psychological thriller.

    I want to thank Netgalley, the Lake Union Publishing and the author Catherine McKenzie for the copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

    On a fateful morning in Chicago, a gas leak causes a building to explode, killing over 500 people. Left behind are Cecily, whose loses both her husband and best friend, mysterious Kate, a woman who lives in Montreal who has a deep connection to the explosion, and Franny, who was recently reunited with her birth mother only to lose her once again. All three women are hiding deep secrets and appear to be existing in a fragile reality built by their web of lies.

    Told through the POV’s of the three women, secrets are revealed, lies are exposed, and friendships are destroyed.

    One of the issues I had with this book is the way Franny’s POV is shared. Where the reader is privy to what’s going on in Cecily’s and Kate’s minds, Franny’s voice is only shared through transcripts of her interviews with the documentary filmmaker. I would have loved to see what was going on inside her twisted mind!

    starts off slow, and I had a hard time connecting with the characters in the beginning because there’s a cold distance surrounding them. However the more bits and pieces of their stories are shared, the more I was able to connect.

    I would recommend to my fellow thriller lovers!

    Much thanks to Cam from Lake Union Fiction for sending me an ARC of this book!
