Book Talk Tuesday: Big Little Lies

It’s just been a week or two since I reviewed THREE WISHES by this same author, and I’m not even done with the book yet, but I can tell it’s amazing.

No one–and by no one, I mean No. One.–does back story like Liane Moriarty. I’m on the edge of my seat just reading this one. Someone is going to die. I know that much. I think I know who.

I’m torn between reading and solving my curiosity, and just setting the book aside, so I can stay in it’s story world.

I’ll publish a brief addendum when I finish the book, but so far, I’m loving it.

Like Moriarty other books, it’s set in Australia. There are three main Point of View characters. Madeleine is the uber-competent mom at the local school. She’s the one who organizes the fund raiser and keeps everyone in touch. Jane is a single mom with a son she dearly loves but is also concerned about. Celeste is the woman who has it all: she’s gorgeous, has an adoring husband, and a set of twin sons.

Moriary tells the reader up front that someone has died. But the rest of the story is well-written and drawn out with just the right amount of backstory and suspense.

Final review to come, but so far: Two thumbs up!
