I’ve really enjoyed Liane Moriarty’s books that I’ve read (Big Little Lies and The Husband’s Secrets). They tend to revolve around a pivotal event or moment – a plot twist that changes everything. Moriarty’s good at building the suspense.
Here’s my issue. When does an author have a style, and when does an author rely on a gimmick? I feel like anyone who’s read her previous books could have at least outlined this book. It was still a good book, but after two previous books who are so similar, it can hardly be seen as great.
It was a good post-holiday book, but I think I’ll give Moriarty a rest for a while.
Any other readers think Truly Madly Guilty exceeded her previous novels?
