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?

I could not listen to the narrator whining on for another chapter!!!
Yes because they are all narrated by the same person Caroline Lee and I cannot listen anymore which is a shame because I love Liane Moriarty's books
I hate to leave a book unfinished but it was really hard to finish this one. Over several months I did persevere, but I am not sure if it was worth the effort. (and it was an effort ). The pace was too slow by far and content did not support such a dragging pace.
Way too boring. Save your money! Gave up during chapter 5 , as the narrator was so irritating.
Yes, the fact that for most of the story you do not know what has happened at the bar b q. It is like listening to a story but not knowing what it is about. It is far too long with not enough happening. So much time is spent on different aspects of their lives such as the audition and it's just not that interesting.
It takes too long to get going and I wasn't keen on most of the characters, I didn't find them particularly likeable. When you did find out what had happened in all its detail it was quite a good plot but by that time I wasn't really that bothered.
The narration takes a bit of getting used to but it is easy to differentiate between the characters.I liked Erica's mother at the meal, she was funny!
No, apart from reach the end.
It was a good listen in parts but the almost tedious detail spoils it. For me it needed more to happen early on or to be a bit shorter.
Loving being able to listen in my car
Reviews were great but I gave up after 5 chapters. Soo dull, I'm guessing it would improve,but I'd lost interest.
No idea, didn't register any off it.
Not that I noticed.
I didn't find this audio book at all engaging. Which is unusual.
I couldn't get used to the narrator. I found her voice to be incredibly annoying, therefore couldn't finish the book.
Liane Moriarty is fast becoming my favourite author. This is another book with secrets spilling out. What did happen on the day of the barbecue? l couldn't stop listening. I could picture every character, see every scene. l loved it.
"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.
"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.
