Mary Kubica

Mary Kubica is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of four novels, including The Good Girl, Pretty Baby, Don't You Cry and the newly released Every Last Lie.

A former high school history teacher, Kubica holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, in History and American Literature.

Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Kubica's reply:
The majority of the books on my nightstand are mysteries and suspense, like Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke’s The Good Widow, and Alice Feeney’s Sometimes I Lie, which I’m so eager to read. Just this morning I finished The Deep Dark Descending by Allen Eskens, an elegant and heartbreaking mystery about the great lengths one man, a Minnesota homicide detective, will go to find his wife’s killer and avenge her death. A thought-provoking and compelling read, I highly recommend fans of Eskens keep an eye out for this one when it arrives in October.

When I’m not reading mysteries, I enjoy historical and women’s fiction, and am currently immersed in Karma Brown’s In This Moment – about how a split-second decision alters one woman’s life – and Colleen Oakley’s Close Enough to Touch, a love story with a protagonist who’s both reclusive and allergic to human touch. I’ve loved Brown and Oakley’s previous work, and these newest releases are no different. Heartbreaking and humorous in their own way, they make the perfect summer read.
