Catherine McKenzie weaves a tale of secrets kept in her latest book HIDDEN. Jeff Manning is hit by a car while walking home from work and leaves two women devastated. One, his wife Claire, is left to struggle with this unimaginable loss while at the same time helping their son Seth find his way through his own suffering. The other, Jeff’s co-worker Julie, is faced with hiding her grief and at the same time burying her secret before anyone discovers it.
Written in the voices of main characters Jeff, Claire, and Tish, this book is brimming with emotion and excitement. Even though Jeff dies at the beginning of the book, his explanations interposed in this way, bring clarity to the story. HIDDEN is about the complexity of relationships – good, bad, and everything in between.
I am an ardent fan of Catherine McKenzie, and have read all of her fabulous books. HIDDEN is a masterpiece! It is carefully crafted with a story line and characters that left me mesmerized. HIDDEN is a book you will carry with you everywhere you go until you read the last words. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a truly absorbing read. I give it five stars.

Thanks for stopping by. Catherine is a fantastic author! I am looking forward to her next book. Yes, they are to be devoured.
I loved all of Catherine’s books and they were all so good I honestly couldn’t pick a favorite. What I did like about HIDDEN, is the way she used Jeff in the storytelling. Check it out, I think you’ll really like it.
Thanks for the tip about Sally Koslow’s THE LATE LAMENTED MOLLY MARX. I have put it on my wish list.
The Blog Hop is going to be fun. Thanks for including me. I, too, look forward to the times we connect. Going to get my tea now!
This looks like a great read! I’ve never read Catherine McKenzie – but will be adding her to my bookshelf! I’d love to see how Jeff’s voice is added to the narrative. It sounds like his voice is added from beyond the grave? I’d love to see how the writer handled those passages.
I really enjoyed Sally Koslow’s The Late Lamented Molly Marx – which was written in detached second person because the main character told the story from beyond the grave. Fascinating read!
