A Chicago building explodes. Why? How? The answers will surprise you. It forever changes the scope of three women’s lives.
This book started with bang and was unstoppable. Cecily watches as her husband’s building explodes. She is not as sad as she should be. She and her husband were getting divorced. Kate, Cecily’s best friend, was supposedly killed in the blast. Then, there is Franny. She is supposedly Kate’s daughter which Kate gave up for adoption years ago. With these three story lines intersecting and crossing, you never know what to believe. This story is twisty. You think you know what’s going on and it changes again.
Well! Catherine McKenzie has done it again. Years ago, I won a copy of her first novel, Spin. I have been a fan ever since. Her writing changes with every book. I love how she never writes the same book twice. Plus her characters are people you know. She creates the best characters with true flaws.
This is a twisty story and it keeps you guessing all the way till the end!
I received this novel from the author for a honest review.
