Praise for The Widower’s Wife:
“One of those rare thrillers that really will keep you reading all night.”
Kirkus starred review

“Holahan once again creates a compelling heroine who can tap into bottomless reserves of strength when push comes to shove. A fast read for domestic-suspense fans.”

“In this chilling cat-and-mouse tale…Holahan keeps the action going.”
Publishers Weekly

“Ryan Monahan is so intriguing that readers will be anxious to read about his further adventures.”
RT Book Reviews

“Impressive, exceptional, original, The Widower’s Wife is a compelling page-turner of a novel from beginning to end—and clearly established author Cate Holahan as an especially skilled novelist of the first order.”
Midwest Book Review

“A terrific mystery.”
Book Reporter

“Cate Holahan did a great job of weaving together a tale of how far desperate people will go…I can’t wait to read her next book.”
San Francisco Book Review

“The contrasting perspectives give the reader an all-encompassing knowledge of the situation, which tends to keep the pages turning…The Widower’s Wife is a great tale for late summer beach reading.”
Noir Journal

“The suspense never ends…The characters are finely drawn, the mystery of what happened a good one…This is a book sure to make my Top Reads of 2016 List.”
Kings River Life

“This twisty thriller is riveting.”
Stop You’re Killing Me

“This book is one of the year’s better thrillers…certainly one of the most original!”
Popular Culture Association

“Ingenious and engrossing. The Widower’s Wife is a twisting, Gone Girl-esque thriller full of lies and secrets that kept me delightfully off balance right to the end. Cate Holahan is a star on the rise.”
—Brad Parks, Shamus, Nero, and Lefty Award-winning author of The Fraud

Praise for Cate Holahan’s Dark Turns:
“Journalist Holahan’s debut will appeal to fans of precocious teen conspiracies like Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars series, as well as to fans of grown-up, plucky-heroine-must-fight-for-herself thrillers.”

“Holahan nails the preppy ambience, the cliques, the conspicuous consumption, and the coltish beauties such as golden girl Aubrey Byrne…[in] this Black Swan pas de deux with Tartt’s The Secret History.”
Publishers Weekly

“A simply riveting read from beginning to end, Dark Turns aptly demonstrates the impressive storytelling talents of author Cate Holahan.”
Midwest Book Review

“A skillfully developed whodunit.”
Popular Culture Association

“In this twisting danse macabre of jealousy, obsession, vanity, and revenge, Cate Holahan gives more than a superb debut performance. Dark Turns provides a master class in murder.”
—Jan Coffey, USA Today bestselling author of Trust Me Once

“Cate Holahan’s debut novel, Dark Turns, reads like a mash-up of Black Swan and a particularly juicy episode of Gossip Girl.”
—Charles Dubow, IndieBound bestselling author of Indiscretion
