Cate Holahan and the Lie Down

Cate Holahan has made a new drink called, "The Lie Down," to match her novel, Lies She Told. Cate Holahan is the USA Today Bestselling author of The Widower’s Wife, Lies She Told, and Dark Turns. In a former life, she was an award-winning journalist that wrote for The Record, The Boston Globe and BusinessWeek.

Lies She Told tells the story of Liza, a struggling suspense writer whose work-in-progress thriller betrays clues to a disappearance in her real life. Every other chapter is told from the perspective of Beth, the protagonist in her story. Part of the fun of this psychological thriller is guessing the unconscious inspiration for parts of Beth’s story and using them to unravel the real murder. The novel was a Sept. Book of The Month Club pick and was called a “suffocating double nightmare” in a Kirkus’ Starred Review. RT Book Reviews said, “If you can pick only one psychological thriller to read this fall, it needs to be Holahan’s Lies She Told.”

DRINK: The LieDown

This mix of sweet and sour mix of bourbon, sweet vermouth and Campari is the perfect compliment to reading Lies She Told because of the unexpected kick packed by this seemingly sweet concoction. Lies She Told is full of surprises and you can’t trust anyone in the novel, much like you might not be able to trust yourself after one of these.


  • 1 ¾ ounces Bourbon
  • ½ an ounce Sweet Vermouth
  • ¾ ounce Campari
