Whilst I did enjoy this book I didn’t think it was as good as the other Liane Moriarty books that I have read. I am a huge fan of Liane Moriarty’s books and I will always check out what she brings out. I think that she is very good at creating realistic characters and writes a good mystery. I didn’t really connect with any of the characters in this book which is a shame as I usually think that Liane creates really good characters. Although there was a mystery in this book I found the reveal to be very anti-climatic and not as shocking as some of her other books. Once again Liane tackled some difficult topics including alcoholism, infertility, and hoarding and I think that she handles these topics really well. I think the synopsis is a little misleading as it makes out that the plot is more dramatic than it is. Overall I would give this a 3.5 as it didn’t live up to some of her other books.
