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?… (mais)

It’s been a year since an explosion rocked a Chicago building killing more than 500 people on Oct 10 at 10 AM. Now, Teo is working on a documentary to bring to light the affect the explosion had on the lives of the family members of the victims. Cecelia lost her husband Tom but barely survived herself. She is trying to do what’s best for her family but is thrown into the limelight because of a picture of her taken by Teo on the day of explosion that went viral. She is trying to use this fame to bring positivity to other people’s lives and help them get compensation. Kaitlin is trying to build a new life for herself in Canada but is unable to escape the memories of her last. Franny is trying to reconcile finally meeting her biological mom with the fact that she died soon after in the explosion. The story follows these three women in how they are handling the aftermath of the tragedy and slowly, we begin to see the secrets unfold.

None of the three women are your typical heroines. They have their flaws which got on my nerves quite a bit but they also have their redeeming qualities. That’s why these women seem quite real. The writing is very fast paced and I almost finished the book in a single setting. It was kinda easy to guess the ending (or the beginning), which I did halfway through the book, but the why of it was very unexpected. I really couldn’t believe the events that unfolded in the last third of the book. And what can I say about the epilogue; it was EXPLOSIVE!!!! And then the book was over….. I really longed for a little bit more; just enough to know what happened to the characters next. This is a wonderful mystery for all like-minded readers and I can assure you, it will not disappoint you.

PS – Thank you to Lake Union Publishing and Netgalley for providing me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )

A quick read that kept me engaged, with an ending that surprised me. ( )

Once I started listening to this novel, it was hard to turn it off. I got wrapped up in the whole story, trying to figure out what had really happened as it went along. All of my questions weren't answered until the very end of the book. I did get a little frustrated with Frannie and how everyone seemed to fall under her spell, but otherwise I enjoyed this read. ( )

OMG! It has been a good while since an an author that is new to me has captured my attention so well from the very start. If it wasn't for work and the need for sleep, I would have finished this is one day lol. I spent 5 hours yesterday reading it because I just couldn't put it down. And the ending...the ending was not something I expected, but it made me enjoy the book even more. If you are looking for a thriller that will keep you wanting more, then this is it. It also made my next book choice an easy one. I will be reading another of Catherine's books next. ( )
