‘Truly Madly Guilty’ by Liane Moriarty

truly-madly-guiltystarstarstarAustralian author Liane Moriarty really knows how to weave a page-turning domestic thriller! The small cast of characters in this one are well described and sufficiently troubled to cast doubt on several people at once–as one reviewer aptly remarked, “she gives her characters enough baggage for a world tour.” If this is not your first Moriarty, you will recognize some of the things she writes about best: fraught friendships, troubled marriages, and checkered pasts. The ending was a bit too neatly tied up, but I thoroughly enjoyed the ride once again.

“Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It’s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?” In Truly Madly Guilty there is an incident at a backyard barbecue that has had devastating consequences, only you don’t know what that terrible thing is until quite far into the book. After the ‘reveal’ however, it’s not over yet. Other twists and turns continue so that like peeling an onion, more layers slowly come to light. I’ve almost read all of her books now,  The Husband’s Secret is still my favourite.
