Release Day for Marly in Pieces by Cathrina Constantine

Love the cover (spooky), plot interesting. I’m guessing not an easy ride, but worth it.

Marly in Pieces by Cathrina Constantine releases today in the Mystery, Young Adult genre.

Marly refuses to believe her friend, Rae, committed suicide. Even though her wrists were slit, Marly knows her beautifully vibrant bestie would never do that.
Even though the two had drifted apart, Marly and Rae made a blood promise long ago to always look out for each other. Even in death, Marly intends to honor that vow.

Determined to find Rae’s killer, Marly faces a long list of potential suspects. It seems everyone has secrets or lies they are covering up… including the boy she loves. Can Marly uncover the murderer’s identity before she becomes the next victim?


Golden globe streetlights cast a brilliant sheen over the winter wonderland that had swathed the region. Accruing snowbanks fenced us in as Duffy and I rambled, gloved hand in gloved hand, along the Erie Basin Marina. Our booted footprints tracked behind us as we scuffed fresh descending snowflakes. Sounds of subdued merriment coasted over the glittering mounds as skaters glided on crystalized ice. 

Even though Canalside was bursting with winter activities—people skating, sledding, and snowshoeing—we’d been content to wander the outskirts, keeping to ourselves. When a cold draft sailed across the nape of my neck, I yanked the collar of my coat to my chin and pulled my knit cap lower to cover my ears. I replaced my gloved hand in his, liking the flawless fit. As he smiled down at me, his dimple hit me full force, and my heart performed an acrobatics routine that left me winded. 

Duffy’s homecoming from the hospital had been bittersweet. He wanted to see what was left of Sanctuary—me, not so much. Nevertheless, I acquiesced. When we reached the cabin’s skeleton of charred wood, we found the stone fireplace somewhat intact. The pit of my stomach soured as memories swarmed me. Rae’s scrolled promise was ashes, and the diamond studs buried.

AUTHOR BIO:I am blessed with a loving family and forever friends. My world revolves around them.

I grew up in the small village of Lancaster, NY, where I married my sweetheart. I’m devoted to raising 5 cherished children, and now my grandchildren.

I love to immerse myself in great books of every kind of genre, which helps me to write purely for entertainment, and hopefully to inspire readers. When not stationed at my computer you can find me in the woods taking long walks with my dog.
