Editorial Reviews

Review

Advance Praise for It Happens All the Time:

"Spellbinding, timely, and unflinchingly honest. This novel will consume you."  (Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and Missing Pieces )

“This compelling, emotional novel reads like the complex truth behind the headlines. It Happens All the Time is a full throttle story with heart." (Deb Caletti, National Book Award finalist )

“At the heart of this moving novel are characters so vivid and tragically real, you can’t help but understand them as they self sabotage, even in unforgiveable ways. It Happens All the Time is an important exercise in empathy and an unflinchingly honest look at the impact of all too common traumas.” (Jane Green, New York Times bestselling author )

"This breathtaking ode to the issue of consent will be the buzz of the reading world come its highly anticipated March release." (PopSugar)

It Happens All the Time delves into the issues of friendship, power dynamics, and consent. With nuance and compassion for her characters, Hatvany reveals the fallout of the ultimate betrayal of trust.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for Somewhere Out There:
"It's no secret that Amy Hatvany is a master of creating compelling, beautiful, flawed characters. This time around, Hatvany has reached new levels of aching honesty and brilliant empathy. A daring, compassionate, and deeply human story, Somewhere Out There is Hatvany at her very best. The women of this book will open your mind, break your heart, and stay with you long after you've turned the last page." (Taylor Jenkins Reid, Author of Maybe in Another Life )

"Gripping and emotionally honest." (Stephanie Evanovich New York Times bestselling author)

“Hatvany brings readers a riveting, controversial story of how impactful our childhood experiences are in defining us as adults.” (YourTango)

“Hatvany deals with topics a lot of us are too afraid to discuss. This will definitely get conversations going.” (Redbook)

Praise for Safe With Me:
“SAFE WITH ME is a stirring portrait of two moms, linked by tragedy, who rescue each other in more ways than one." (Good Housekeeping)

“Hatvany does a marvelous job of not letting the plot get too maudlin or ‘ripped from the headlines,’ and her characters have warmth and depth. Readers will find themselves cheering for these women. A good pick for women’s fiction fans, particularly those who enjoy the realistic stories of Emily Giffin and Kristina Riggle.” (Booklist on SAFE WITH ME)

"In Amy Hatvany's capable hands, richly drawn characters explore everything that is complex, difficult, powerful and poignant about being a mother, a daughter, a friend. SAFE WITH ME is an extraordinary look behind the curtain into the very private pains of women, and the hope that endures when you survive the unthinkable. It will remind you that the human spirit can triumph over all, and you will wish you could reach directly into these pages and hug the heroines." (Stacey Ballis author of Off the Menu)

"Amy Hatvany is a strong new voice in contemporary women's fiction. SAFE WITH ME is a compelling, thought provoking novel about three women learning from each other as they navigate through a terrain filled with both tragedy and opportunity." (Kristin Hannah #1 New York Times bestselling author)

"Equally heartbreaking and heart pounding, Amy Hatvany's SAFE WITH ME puts her in the very fine company of Jodi Picoult as an author who takes tender real life moments and compels the reader to care until the very last page. A book that will stick with you for days." (Allison Winn Scotch New York Times bestselling author of The Time of My Life)

Praise for Heart Like Mine:
“The novel explores myriad themes sure to appeal to fans of women’s fiction: love and loss, parenthood, grief, friendship, and complex family dynamics. Hatvany’s compassion for each female character is evident throughout, and readers will find their hearts, at times, breaking in three.” (Booklist)

“The voices are so down to earth and familiar and the events so much like real life that readers will feel like they know the characters…An uplifting and heartwarming experience.” (Kirkus Reviews)

"By turns gripping and revelatory, Heart Like Mine is a sympathetic exploration of blended family dynamics. In her affecting new novel, Amy Hatvany pulls no punches; her characters grapple with life's big moments—marriage, parenthood, death—but she renders each of them with compassion and understanding. Heart Like Mine tells an honest, hopeful story that resonates in all the best ways." (Jillian Medoff bestselling author of I Couldn't Love You More)

"Heart Like Mine fearlessly explores men and women desperate to measure up to the rigors of parenthood, but still failing their children. Hatvany bring sympathy and compassion to the page, while never losing sight of the damage children suffer when their parents make bad decisions." (Randy Susan Meyers bestselling author of The Murderer's Daughters)

"A heartfelt, moving story about the lasting effects of grief amidst family bonds and breakups, and the healing powers of love, honesty, and acceptance. Hatvany writes with such wise compassion for every one of her characters." (Seré Prince Halverson author of The Underside of Joy)

“A palpable love story, emotional search for and acceptance of a lost parent, and a bittersweet ending make for an enveloping, heartfelt read.” (Publishers Weekly)

"Beautiful and deeply moving, Amy Hatvany writes about the tangled web of family in a way that makes you laugh, cry, cheer and ache. This book has so much heart." (Sarah Jio New York Times bestselling author of Blackberry Winter)

 “There are no storybook perfect endings here, but this compelling novel raises the possibility of a hopeful way forward.” (The Seattle Times)

“Will delight readers…vivid and written with a depth of feeling.” (Library Journal)

“Compelling…a fascinating look at mental illness—the exuberance and self loathing, creativity and destruction that then reverberate against the lives of family and loved ones.” (Juliette Fay Shelter Me)

“Like a gorgeous dark jewel, Hatvany’s novel explores the tragedy of a mind gone awry, a tangled bond of father and daughter, and the way hope and love sustain us. It does what the best fiction does: it makes us see and experience the world differently.” (Caroline Leavitt New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You)

“I’m telling everyone about Best Kept Secret. It’s the realistic and ultimately hopeful story of Cadence, whose glass of wine at the end of the day becomes two…then…three…then a bottle. I love that Cadence feels so familiar, she could be my neighbor, my friend, or even my sister.” (Jennifer Weiner #1 New York Times bestselling author)

“I was transfixed by Cadence and her heart wrenching dilemma. The writing is visceral, the problems are real, and there are no clear solutions. You won’t want to put it down.” (Emily Giffin New York Times bestselling author of Where We Belong)
