Praise for SISTER DEAR:
“Sinister, simmering, cinematic—and absolutely riveting. The oh-so-talented Hannah Mary McKinnon skillfully and cleverly twists and turns this unstoppable story of envy and obsession—and powers it to a gasp-worthy conclusion. Wow—standing ovation!” — Hank Phillippi Ryan, nationally bestselling author of The Murder List
“A stunning achievement! Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, Hannah Mary McKinnon proved me wrong. Beautifully plotted story with characters that left a mark.” — Samantha Downing, author of #1 International Bestseller, My Lovely Wife
“Loss, love, revenge, buried secrets and greed add up to make Sister Dear an electrifying read. If you think you know where this story is headed, watch out. Hannah Mary McKinnon has a few tricks up her sleeve. A must read!” — Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl and The Other Mrs.
“A brilliant, breathless thriller that crackles with suspense and heart-thumping twists. I finished this absorbing, creepy and downright sinister novel in the wee hours of the night. And the ending…perfection! Sister Dear is McKinnon’s best book yet.” — Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and Before She Was Found
“Sister Dear drew me in, had me hooked and I was never really sure what to expect (in a good way)! or who to trust. I thought it was dark, twisty, compelling and also heartbreaking. I really felt for Eleanor and didn’t see the ending coming at all! Unputdownable and I truly enjoyed reading it to see how the intertwined lives would unfold. Highly recommended!” — Karen Hamilton, international bestselling author of The Perfect Girlfriend
Praise for STILL HERE
“A powerful, atmospheric, perfectly plotted thriller. . . . An outstanding read.”
— SAMANTHA M. BAILEY, #1 bestselling author of Woman on the Edge
“In Stuart’s gripping third Still psychological thriller . . . Readers will cheer Clare all the way to the satisfactory resolution. Those new to the series will want to go back and read the first two books.”
— Publishers Weekly
Praise for STILL WATER
“Torontonian Amy Stuart’s debut novel, Still Mine, was highly promising. Still Water brings back the same characters in a new setting and proves that Stuart is no one-book author. Still Water is even better than her debut.”
— The Globe and Mail
“Riveting, twisty and full of tangled secrets…. A stay-up-all-night read. Impossible to put down!”
— KARMA BROWN, bestselling author of In This Moment
“Instantly captivating, mysterious and relevant—Amy Stuart has done it again!”
— MARISSA STAPLEY, author of Things to Do When It’s Raining
