Truly Madly Guilty

Front Cover
Pan Macmillan Australia, Jul 20, 2016 - Fiction - 300 pages

From the no. 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Husband's Secret, Big Little Lies and new novel Nine Perfect Strangers.

"One of the few writers I'll drop anything for. Her books are wise, honest, beautifully observed" Jojo Moyes

IF ONLY THEY'D SAID NO...

Clementine is haunted by regret. It was just a barbeque. They didn't even know their hosts that well, they were friends of friends. They could so easily have said no.

But she and her husband Sam said yes, and now they can never change what they did and didn't do that Sunday afternoon.

Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One playful dog. It's an ordinary weekend in the suburbs. What could possibly go wrong?

Marriage, sex, parenthood and friendship: Liane Moriarty takes these elements of our lives and shows us how guilt can expose the fault lines in any relationship, and it is not until we appreciate the fragility of life that we can truly value what we have.

REALLY not my thing. Her books are totally hit or miss for me. I loved Big Little Lies, but this book was just NOT my cup of tea. There are so many books out there - I'd suggest reading something else. Read full review

Liked the book but it was not as good as her other book Big Little Lies. There was a lot of suspense and trying to figure out what was going on. Would definitely recommend this book. Fun book. The book had interesting characters, good plot and good suspense. Read full review
