After months of anticipation

We couldn’t wait to get our hands on Liane Moriarty’s Truly Madly Guilty! Moriarty never misses and her latest is no exception. What begins as a fun afternoon BBQ drastically changes the lives of three families. As always, Moriarty keeps the suspense building, but the story is also a meaningful look at what it means to be a good friend, parent and partner.

Until next week, happy reading!
