Parallel universesExisting within the light of truth while simultaneously traveling the roads of deception inked in covert shadowsSomehow the lustre of New York notoriety has worn thin for mystery writer Liza Cole Liza stares blankly at her computer screen lost in agonizing thoughts of turning out a well overdue blockbuster thriller Notches in her book belt would be one thing but Liza has a mortgage payment on the upscale condo and highly expensive fertility treatments in the process Her husband David has a new law partnership that needs his undivided attention which leaves Liza living on the peripheral Stress seems to have wallpapered every room in this now depleted love nest Then a sonic boom hits the airwaves when Nick David s law partner goes missing David is distraught upon hearing the news He and Nick are best friends Days turn into weeks with no sign of Nick Tension sits like a cold meatball sandwich congealing between them Nothing Liza says or does consoles David So Liza steps deftly into the fictional world of her writing A daily glimpse into her character Beth s wired atmosphere provides Liza with the diversion that she needs Beth has recently given birth to a beautiful baby girl She is experiencing the heavy demands of breastfeeding and the 247 care of a newborn Although sleep deprived and physically exhausted Beth s internal antennae picks up the vibrations of a wayward husband With stroller in hand Beth hides across the street and spots Jake lockin eyes and holding hands with an attractive woman in a darkened restaurant Oh it s gonna get good nowCate Holahan presents a dual storyline that crosses back and forth into the real and the not so real Just like adjusting the thermostat in an overheated room the reader will experience the flash of hot and cold from Liza s situations to those of Beth s Holahan knows how to keep her readers locked in to the staccato beat of her storyline as she did in her previous book The Widower s Wife I especially liked her story layering into Liza s episodes and encounters in the publishing worldAttention to detail is a must here There s plenty of dark streets involved along the East River with a deep chill in the air My thanks to Crooked Lane Publishers and to Cate Holahan for a copy of this book That deep chill has certainly stayed with me

Lies She Told

Sometimes the truth is darker than fictionLiza Jones has thirty days to write the thriller that could put her back on the bestseller list In the meantime she’s struggling to start a family with her husband who is distracted by the disappearance of his best friend Nick With stresses weighing down in both her professional and her personal life Liza escapes i. The first couple of chapters were confusing though switching between Liza and the character in the book she is writing Beth Once I got my head around the continual swapping the book made sense and hooked me in The pace of the story is slow and methodical at first but it uickly picks up in the second half of the book I often found myself having to stop and think for a minute about which storyline I was actually reading As the book goes on the line between true life and fiction begins to blur There are many twists and turns throughout that come with deeper character development and these help to push to a shocking and satisfying conclusion This piece of work was beautifully written with all the suspense murder mystery and surprise anyone needs in a thriller We have Liza whose husband is worried about his best friend who is missing When the body is found her husband is charged Meanwhile Liza writes about a woman named Beth whose husband is cheating on her and she feels only way to keep marriage is to kill the mistress So story goes back and forth you have pay attention So you do not miss out on anything and you do get absorbed in both women s livesThis is a new author to me Cate Holahan brings this story to a fantastic exciting close I could not put the second half of the book down I loved it The ending was so fabulous Her characters are vivid and real despite their character flaws and the atmosphere and setting is intricate and detailed especially for a book that is essentially a book within a book I can t wait to get my hands on Holahan s other booksI highly recommend this book for those that like a thrillerI want to thank Crooked Lane Publishers for mailing me this book to me for an honest review
