Published April 3rd 2018 by Lake Union Publishing

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? 


My thoughts about The Good Liar ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First lines—"I was late. That's why I wasn't there when it happened. Not in the building, not even that close."

Life for Cecily stopped that day one year ago. The day the building came down. She should have been there, but she wasn't. Her life has been put on hold this past year—the book her husband was reading is still laying on his nightstand, just waiting for him to come home and pick it up. For a year, she has been lying to everyone, and to herself.

The three women, connected by that one day, connected by that tragedy, connected by their lies. So many lies! Twists and turns as the reader tries to figure out the truth behind all the lies. Who even knows the truth anymore?

The Good Liar is a spellbinding thriller that will keep you guessing to the end. I devoured it and loved it! I've read all of Catherine's books and her stories just keep getting better and better. 

I received a copy of The Good Liar via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
