Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
Having read reviews on Google Books about this, I was sceptical, I wasn’t sure about it.
As per usual with my book purchases, I had headed into Waterstones to waste some time and spotted the book, in form and thought – it’s on offer, let’s go.
I was pleasantly surprised.
With alternating plots, and different voices, the book keeps you on your toes with twists and turns that are unexpected, and at some points, a bit odd even for me.
Set in a small town with three different couples, at different stages of life, there is already a possibility for conflict, but this is the most simple part of the whole story.
Met by questions of the mysterious barbecue, it not only gets you to the barbecue but also past – which for someone who likes to know the aftermath, this was handy.
Moriarty continues to keep you in suspense, dreaming of an easier life for all of the characters and hoping that relief will come soon.
This is a heart wrencher for those who have been through a similar situation, but also for those who are good at sensing things for fictional characters.
For anyone that enjoyed Moriarty’s The Husband’s Secret and the TV show, based on the book, Big Little Lies, this is a must for Summer 2017.
A great read, with the only problem being that it ended too soon.
