Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

Truly Madly GuiltyTruly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Three couples lives are dissected quite thoroughly throughout this book. There was an afternoon BBQ at one of their houses where something terrible happened and for the first half of the book we didn't know what had happened, although it was constantly referred to and hinted at.

If you have patience to just read the book and enjoy the writing, you will love this book. Clementine and Sam have two little girls, Holly and Ruby who are very precious and precocious. Erika is Clementine's best friend from childhood and she and her husband Oliver are enduring IVF treatments. Vid and Tiffany are the neighbours of Erika and Oliver and have a little girl, dakota who is an avid reader. The BBQ in question took place at Vid's and Tiffany's place.

There is also a crotchety old fellow named Harry who lives next door to Vid and Tiffany and who plays an unexpected role.

The underlying theme of the story was guilt that came from simple, ordinary mistakes that we all make. This was a quiet page turner. By the end I felt that I was part of the circle and could feel a loss in ending the book.
