Welcome, neighbor!

Julie Prentice and her family move across the country to the idyllic Mount Adams district of Cincinnati, hoping to evade the stalker who’s been terrorizing them ever since the publication of her bestselling novel, The Murder Game. Since Julie doesn’t know anyone in her new town, when she meets her neighbor John Dunbar, their instant connection brings measured hope for a new beginning. But she never imagines that a simple, benign conversation with him could set her life spinning so far off course.

We know where you live.…

After a series of misunderstandings, Julie and her family become the target of increasingly unsettling harassment. Has Julie’s stalker found her, or are her neighbors out to get her, too? As tension in the neighborhood rises, new friends turn into enemies, and the results are deadly.

An avid skier and runner, Catherine's novels Spin, Arranged, Forgotten, and Hidden are all international bestsellers and have been translated into numerous languages. Hidden was an Amazon #1 bestseller and a Digital Book World...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from liked it I liked the book, but the back and forth between now and then is a little hard to keep straight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good! I could not get enough of this book, I just couldn't put it down. It had an eerie voyeuristic nature about it I found so entertaining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deliciously engaging! One of my favourite reads of 2016, Fractured was entertaining, engrossing and totally unputdownable. I read it from cover to cover in just one day, turning the digital pages with what I can only describe as an unquenchable thirst for more, more, more...Written from two points of view (Julie and John's) and along two timelines (before and after the 'event'), Fractured is a fast-moving thriller with plenty of twists and turns that will have you guessing until the very end. Everything about Fractured is deliciously engaging, from it's idyllic and picturesque setting to it's overbearing neighbours and emotionally fragile and flawed main characters. Catherine McKenzie has woven together a wonderful, thrilling tale from which you cannot escape; not that you would want to!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprised? not so much Once I finished the book I felt slightly underwhelmed. The last chapter wasn't as gripping as her previous books. Definitely had it's moments where I did not want to put it down though. I enjoyed the discussion of the past in relation to present day. Ultimately, Julie seems dramatic, with reason, and the neighbourhood unfortunately sets her up for failure. Enjoyed this book as I love all her books though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why? From the beginning of this book to the end you are waiting for another shoe to drop, on the edge of your seat with your heart in your throat. Moving thousand of miles from a known stalker, should have been a new start for Daniel and Julie, but things are beginning again, and all thoughts are about the original person, Hannah, whom Julie has know since she was in college. Now it seems they have moved into the neighborhood that seems to be run by a dictator. All through the book you get a feeling that someone might end up dead, but who, and how could that happen again? If you enjoy suspense and drama this story is abounding in it, and once you start, you will be at the end in no time! I received this book through Lake Union Publishing and was not required to give a positive review.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite a Thriller, But... On finishing the book, my first impression was the description is slightly misleading - it sets you up for a dark, twisty thriller with a surprise ending and it's definitely not that. In my opinion, the narrative is much closer to that of a Jodi Picoult novel. That being said, while not being my favourite Catherine Mackenzie book, it's certainly the best written. Julie and John, the main characters, are complex and well-developped. Mackenzie's style conveys wells how gradually the community begins to feed into Julie's paranoia and stiffle her. I had some reservations at the beginnning because the lack of details about the situation that triggered Julie's move makes it hard to understand her reactions and sympathize with her fears, but this is resolved quickly. I look forward to seeing how her next book turns out.
