Book Club: Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

Henpicked’s book of the month for January 2020…

Happy New Year! Welcome to another year of great reads and interesting discussions. Thank you so much to everyone who has joined in, contributed and recommended books.

There were some fantastic reviews and comments about Us by David Nicholls.

If you haven’t shared your thoughts yet, please do join in the conversation at the bottom of the article on Disqus. What did you think of it? Would you recommend it to a friend? We know some of us haven’t finished yet but we’d still like to hear from you.

For this month we’ve chosen Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty. Thanks to Carol for the recommendation.

From the bestselling author behind the HBO series Big Little Lies, comes a cocktail of friendship and modern love – spiked with a little deception.

Six responsible adults, two best friends – and one day that changes everything.

By the end of it a lifelong friendship will be in tatters, a marriage on the rocks and an innocent bystander dead.

In just one evening six lives will change forever.

Here are the reviews…

“If, like us, you’ve been obsessively enjoying Big Little Lies, then you must clear a reading slot for this novel by the same author… Truly Madly Guilty is as brilliantly accomplished as it is dark, twisty and compulsive.” Heat

“Wise, honest, beautifully observed. One of the few writers I’ll drop anything for.” Jojo Moyes, bestselling author of Me Before You

“Straight-from-life characters, knife-sharp insight and almost unbearable suspense will have you racing through it.” Good Housekeeping

“A friendly neighbourhood barbecue spirals out of control in Liane Moriarty’s gripping domestic drama.” Sunday Express
