Hidden by Catherine McKenzie

While walking home from work one evening, Jeff Manning is struck by a car and killed. 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 as well as contend with funeral arrangements, well-meaning family members, and the arrival of Jeff’s estranged brother, who was her ex-boyfriend. Tish volunteers to attend the funeral on her 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, the repercussions of our personal choices, and the responsibilities we have to the ones we love.

My Review: 
 
A story that starts with the death of a man. We get tangled into a web of who is with whom? There are children involved, and a funeral to plan. Family, yes all kinds of family.
The wife has had a previous relationship with her husband’s brother. You begin to wonder if it is still going on? Has it ever stopped? Now the husband you will feel sorry for, whom does he wife love? Is there a question?
Then we have the other woman, she is also a wife and mother. Will she forsake all and everything for a liaison? You will wonder right to the last page.
We even have the dead man, telling his side of the story, along with his wife, and maybe mistress. The story circles around and back again, and we see the same thing happen from three sides.
I've read Catherine McKenzie's books before, and this one does not disappoint! Get ready for one heart in your throat action, and keep the tissue box handy!

I received this book through the Publisher HMH New Harvest, through Net Galley, and was not required to give a positive review.
