McHugh weaves these stories together seamlessly in an of-the-moment thriller that will leave you guessing what the truth is until the final page. A terrific debut!
Catherine McKenzie, USA Today bestselling author of I’ll Never Tell and Six Weeks to Live
It’s a mommy blog gone terribly wrong in this captivating debut from Mandy McHugh. CHLOE CATES IS MISSING has everything I want in a domestic thriller: propulsive storytelling, razor-sharp prose, disturbing behavior, explosive secrets, and a uniquely dysfunctional family. Settle in for this stunner; once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop.
Megan Collins, author of The Family Plot
You know that thriller that grabs you from page one and doesn’t stop? The one that burns your fingertips from turning pages? This is that thriller. From the timely social media relevance, to the constant tension, to the tightly weaved plot, this one doesn’t let go until delivering an ending that will leave your mouth hanging open. With chilling prose and an atmospheric setting, I’m already looking forward to her next.
Jaime Lynn Hendricks, author of Finding Tessa
A missing thirteen-year-old, a social media-obsessed mother, and a toxic childhood friendship collide in Mandy McHugh's fast-paced and deliciously tangled knot of a thriller about dangerous secrets and even more dangerous lies. A breathless, stay-up-all-night read!
Sarah Stewart Taylor, author or The Mountains Wild and A Distant Grave
In the way that we constantly check our retweets or shamelessly devour the latest social media scandal, I compulsively devoured Chloe Cates Is Missing. With characters you love to hate, this novel is Drama with a capital D—and is utterly terrifying in its snapshot of our selfie society’s obsession with popularity and perception.
