Review: Six Weeks to Live by Catherine McKenzie

In her 11th novel, Catherine McKenzie delivers another gripping and pulse-pounding psychological family drama. This book moves at breakneck speed and was impossible for me to put down. I have always appreciated this author’s ability to craft a plot full of twists and turns, but it is her characters that always draw me in. Something that was true again in this book.

SIX WEEKS TO LIVE kicks off with Jennifer receiving a dire health diagnosis. She has cancer and is given just—you guessed it—six weeks to live. Based on the test results, Jennifer is certain she has been poisoned, but by who? And with that question in mind, this novel is off and running towards the I-never-saw-it-coming ending. 

Jennifer must break the news to her triplet daughters and it affects them all in very different ways. The story is told through the POV of mother and daughters, giving readers great insight into all four as little seeds of doubt are planted in all of their stories making you wonder just who is telling the truth. 

In SIX WEEKS TO LIVE, McKenzie once again gives her readers exactly what we have come to love about her, a crisply written, fast-paced and ultimately mind-bending thriller that you don’t want to put down.
