Truly Madly Guilty

trulyI’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?
