Publisher's Summary

Once again Liane Moriarty uses her unique, razor-sharp observational skills to sift through the emerging fault lines of seemingly happy families.

If only they'd said no....

What if they hadn't gone? That's the question Clementine can't stop asking herself.

It was just a backyard barbeque. They didn't know their hosts that well. They were friends of friends. They could so easily have said no. But she and her husband, Sam, said yes, and now they can never change what they did and didn't do that beautiful winter's day. Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One yapping dog. It's a normal weekend in the suburbs. What could possibly go wrong?

    Story
    "Compelling Reading!!!"
    What did you like most about Truly Madly Guilty?

    There are so many different stories linked into one. Each character is interesting too. Liane Moriarty is such a good writer, so unusual and different. Some if the 'throw away' lines are just hysterical I was laughing out loud a lot of times. The only tiny criticism I would have is the over use of the exclamation 'What?!!!' It was a tad irritating


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was good how each of the characters had their own reason for blaming themselves for what happened at the BBQ, how the event was told from each persons perspective


    What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I find Caroline Lee to be quite an eccentric reader. She's not the usual run of the mill kind of narrator, she is very different. I have read all of Liane Moriarty's books to date, and it took me a while to get used to her voice - now that I have, I love her voice! She really brings the story to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When I found out what actually happened at the BBQ!!!! I was totally shocked, I was just not expecting that!! Also, towards the end when the other little girl told her grandma what happened


    Any additional comments?

    I just love this author!! It's not chic-lit, it's much more than that. Her books are very intriguing. Can't wait for her next one!!

    "Moriarty at her best"

    No one else tells a story like this, pure genius the characters, the topics her attention to detail make for a thought provoking story.

    Story
    "Extremely Disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    Having read all of Liane Moriarty's previous novels and really enjoyed them, I had high expectation of Truly, Madly, Guiltily, however I was extremely disappointed. The story rambles on in such a manner as to make it boring. About a third of the way through, I skipped to final chapters to at learn what the gist of the story had been about but I'm afraid I still don't know. I regret wasting a credit on this book and will be highly cautious about buying Liane's next release.

    Story
    "Couldn't finish it"

    I kept hoping something interesting would happen and was disappointed by what happened on the day of the barbecue (or as far as I listened anyway) and so couldn't listen further. No doubt more happens but I couldn't bear to hear any more detail on the lead characters who are not particularly likeable and the pace of the drama was not fast enough to hold my attention.

    "Truly a great listen."

    Liane Moriarty is currently my favorite author. This story was fun and believable and compelling. I enjoy reading her books but love listening to Caroline Lee read them even more. There are always a few twists that I never expect and Truly Madly Guilty delivered.

    Story
    "Not my favorite"

    While I've enjoyed several Liane Moriarty stories, this one just took way too long to come together. The last 1/3 of the book was very good, but it was hard for me to keep going to get there. Caroline Lee, the narrator, was absolutely superb which made the trudge through the first part of the story worth it.
