Waiting on Wednesday #9: ‘Hidden’ by Catherine McKenzie

Waiting on Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, to spotlight upcoming releases that make me clap in bookish glee.

This week’s selection:

17264353Hidden by Catherine McKenzie

Release date:  June 25, 2013

Publisher:  Harper Collins

Why?  I am not usually much of one for contemporary fiction/chick lit, but McKenzie really has a way of drawing me into her stories with the little twists she manages to insert.  Plus, she always sneaks a redhead into every book, so, yeah…

From the jacket:

‘When a married man suffers a sudden fatal accident, two women are shattered—his wife and someone else’s—and past secrets, desires and regrets are brought to light

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 Jeff’s estranged brother—her ex-boyfriend—Tim.

With Tish’s co-workers in the dark about her connection to Jeff outside the workplace, she volunteers to attend the funeral on the company’s 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, our personal choices and the responsibilities we have to the ones we love.’
