Pre Pub Book Buzz: Hidden by Catherine McKenzie

Or my version of Waiting on Wednesday :)

Some of you might recall my gushing praise of Catherine McKenzie's 2012 releases, Spin, Arranged, and Forgotten. All three were at the top of my list of books read that year. I've been anxiously awaiting McKenzie's fourth release, Hidden, antsy as hell because it's been out in her native Canada since this past summer. We here in the States still have a bit of a wait, but every day is one day closer to the April 1st release!

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

While walking home from work one evening, Jeff Manning is struck by a car and killed. Not one but two women fall to pieces at the news: his wife, Claire, and his co-worker Tish. Reeling from her loss, Claire must comfort her grieving son and contend with funeral arrangements, well-meaning family members and the arrival of Jeffs estranged brother, her ex-boyfriend Tim. With Tish's co-workers in the dark about her friendship with Jeff outside of the office, she volunteers to attend the funeral on the companys behalf, but only she knows the true risk of inserting herself into the wreckage of Jeff's life. Told through the three voices of Jeff, Tish, and Claire, Hidden explores the complexity of relationships, the repercussions of our personal choices, and the responsibilities we have to the ones we love.

Considering how blown away I've been not only by McKenzie's books but her overall taste in fiction in general, I definitely expect Hidden to be an incredible read.
