This thread is open to discuss The Good Liar by Catherine McKenzie.

description

Synopsis
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?

message 14: by Brooke (new)

Brooke | 1199 comments I should be able to start this one tonight! I’ve got a flight and most likely will have delays at the airport with pending storms, so any irritation from getting home late will be alleviated by a (hopefully) good book.

Vicki Willis | 405 comments I am planning on starting this one in about a week. Then I will look at spoilers.

Off Topic but interesting. the next three books I am either reading or planning to read have the word Lies/Liar in the title. I couldn't figure out why I was getting confused... But now I know. I am wondering if the word "lie" is the next "girl"?

Geri | 2042 comments Happy Monday all! I finished part 2. A lot happens and is revealed. How is everyone enjoying the book? Did you figure out some of the twists before the reveals?

That is funny! Never thought about a word being trendy for books. But you are probably right. Girl on the Train. Girl with a Dragon Tatto...


message 27: by Brooke (new)

Brooke | 1199 comments I snuck in a bit of reading while eating lunch today. I'm done with part 2.

Geri: (view spoiler)

Part 2 was a roller coaster! Can't wait to see how it ends. I have a dinner tonight so doubt I'll be able to finish it until tomorrow.


message 28: by Laura (new)

Laura | 9707 comments Blah, I 'm trying to juggle 4 books and life all at once. I'll be back soon and catch up!

I had a bunch of in progress books that had to be read by 5/31, so I somehow crammed in 8 books last week. I am more relaxed this week about reading...that was too much!


message 30: by Geri (last edited Jun 05, 2018 01:16PM) (new)

Geri | 2042 comments Brooke, WOW, not sure how you managed 8 books in a week!

I finished. And boy, it was a rollercoaster. My opinion of Kate and Frannie kept changing. Can’t wait to read what everyone thinks of the ending.

I would never have been able to do it without audiobooks. And I don't think I ever will again! I need to get better about finishing books before starting new ones. LOL


message 34: by Brooke (new)

Brooke | 1199 comments I finished! I'm still trying to figure out what I think about the main characters, but my initial reaction is that I liked the book.

(view spoiler)

I'm going to keep an eye out for more books by McKenzie.

The book was very twisty. I liked that a lot. My feelings about the characters kept changing too. You need to finish this one Laura!

I mostly listen to audio too. And I have a bad habit of putting down a book I started to pick up a new one. Sometimes I have 4 or 5 at the same time. But never 8. You are the winner there!
