Mary Kubica and Holly Brown participated in the She Reads “Author to Author” series. Both have gripping new novels out that center around teenage mothers and the families pulled into sway. Mary and Holly have each written domestic dramas that grab you by the throat. So it made perfect sense to have them sit down together and compare notes.
Holly’s A NECESSARY END is a taut, riveting novel of psychological suspense about a woman determined to be a mother despite a past full of secrets, a husband who’s nowhere near ready for fatherhood, and a teenaged birth mother with a mysterious agenda of her own. Holly asks how far would you go to get what you wanted?
“A NECESSARY END…offers a glimpse of a writer whose sensitivity to the nature of the modern family, and all of its possibilities for tragedy, could soon lift her into a league with Paula Hawkins and Jodi Picoult.” --USA Today
“In the Gone Girl mode, author Holly Brown fashions her second novel around three unlikable, but interesting people, making us care about the twists this domestic thriller takes. Brown adds layer after layer to this well-constructed psychological drama.” --Associated Press
