“Starts with a bang and never lets up. If you think you’ve got this one figured out – think again.” —Liv Constantine, international bestselling  author of The Last Mrs. Parrish 

“Recommended for anyone who enjoys Paula Hawkins or Gillian Flynn, primarily because it’s better.” —Library Journal

“Holahan keeps the suspense high…until the surprising denouement.” —Publisher’s Weekly

Her Three Lives follows a family that must discover who the real enemy is after a violent home invasion breaks their trust in one another. Jade Thompson is an up-and-coming social media influencer, she has a beautiful new home and a successful architect for a fiancé and seems to have it all. But there’s trouble behind the scenes. To her husband Greg’s children, his divorce from their mother and his new life can only mean a big mid-life crisis. To Jade, her husband’s suburban Connecticut upbringing isn’t an easy match with her Caribbean roots.

A brutal home invasion leaves Greg house-bound with a traumatic brain injury and glued to the live feeds from his ubiquitous security cameras. As the police investigate the crime and Greg’s frustration and rage grow, Jade begins to wonder what he may know about their attackers. And whether they are coming back.  As Greg watches Jade’s comings and goings, he becomes convinced that her behavior is suspicious and that she’s hiding a big secret.  The more he sees, the more he wonders whether the break-in was really a random burglary. And whether he’s worth more to Jade if he were dead.
