Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty. (2016).
*3.5 out of 5 stars*
A relaxed backyard barbeque has consequences for everyone who attended when an incident results in splitting apart a group of friend who can’t change what they did and didn’t do that afternoon.
This is my third novel from Liane Moriarty. I did prefer the other two (The Husband’s Secret & Big Little Lies) but this is an enjoyable enough easy read. My main criticism would have to be that I could not find myself relating to any of the main characters for some reason – I think for me they all just felt a bit over the top in their respective ways. The story flicks between the day of the BBQ and current time approximately two months later. It was a tad slow in finding out what actually happened at the BBQ but I did like the focus on the ripple effect on everyone involved and their relationships after the incident. A pleasant enough read but not the author’s best in my personal humble opinion :).
