THE GOOD LIAR by Catherine McKenzie & GIVEAWAY


Can you hide a secret with the whole world watching?

When an explosion rips through a Chicago building in Catherine McKenzie’s entertaining and compelling new novel, THE GOOD LIAR (LakeUnionPublishing), the lives of three women are forever changed.

A year later, Cecily is still in mourning. She was supposed to be in the building that day. Instead, she stood on the street and watched it go down, with her husband and best friend inside. Kate’s now living thousands of miles away, hoping her past won’t catch up with her. Franny, a young woman in search of her birth mother, watched the horror unfold on the morning news, just knowing that the woman she was so desperate to reconnect with was in the building.

The anniversary of Triple Ten, which the disaster is called because of the date it happened, dominates the media. The memories of that terrifying morning become dangerous triggers to Cecily, Kate and Franny. In addition, all of these women are guarding important secrets. Just how far will they go to keep them?

Once again Catherine serves up secrets, lies and betrayal. THE GOOD LIAR is full of twists and turns that will keep readers turning pages. This is one of the best psychological thrillers I’ve read so far this year. THE GOOD LIAR will be published tomorrow, April 3rd.



A graduate of McGill University in History and Law, Catherine is a partner in a litigation boutique in Montreal, where she was born and raised. Catherine’s novels, SPIN, ARRANGED, FORGOTTEN, HIDDEN, SMOKE and FRACTURED, are bestsellers and have been translated into numerous languages, including French, German, Portuguese, Polish, Turkish, Slovakian and Czech. SMOKE was named one of the Top 100 Books in 2015 by Amazon and one of the Best Books of October 2015 by Goodreads. FRACTURED was named one of the Best Books of October 2016 by Goodreads.

Catherine’s first book writing as Julie Apple (the protagonist in FRACTURED), THE MURDER GAME, was released in November, 2016. SPIN has been optioned for a television series. A short film of ARRANGED was made in 2014 and won a Canadian National Screen Institute Award. Catherine was on set while they filmed it. It was one of the highlights of her writing life.

  1. I wish I could tell you which of her novels is my favorite. I haven’t read any of them yet, although I have been meaning to. Now I’m hoping to read this first.

  2. Of all the books I’ve read of hers, Arranged was my favorite. I didn’t know a short film was made of this book. I’ll have to see if I can find it.


  3. This is a brand new author for me. Until today, I’d never heard about her books. I saw this title on another blog earlier this evening, and then on yours. Definitely want to read it!

  4. I’ve read (and loved) all of her books, and I would say that my favorite is Forgotten. I can’t wait to read The Good Liar!
