Author: Liane Moriarty
Another great story from Liane Moriarty. I’ll tell you, with every book I read of hers I just wish to read it for the first time again. I have read a lot of reviews on this book saying it wasn’t their favorite by Moriarty. I couldn’t disagree more. I think her books are equally brilliant and I can not wait to start another!
Like Big Little Lies and Three Wishes, this book is told from multiple POV. It always strikes me as fascinating how Liane can create such full of life characters and not just for a couple in one book. No. She goes into such detail with every character written that you truly believe you know these people and are apart of their lives.
The Munro Baby Mystery. What is that all about? Well Alice and Jack Munro live on Scribbly Gum Island with the Doughty family. In the 1930’s, sisters Connie and Rose Doughty head over to their neighbors (Alice and Jack) for a cup of tea. Only when they arrive something is askew. There are drops of blood on the kitchen floor, the kettle is still on the stove, freshly made marble cake on the table, and a baby in the crib upstairs. Where are Alice and Jack? No where to found. This book is completely based around the Munro Baby Mystery and the where Connie, Rose, and baby Enigma are now in their lives (as old ladies)!
As always with Moriarty’s books, you won’t go very long without laughing out loud. You’ll be on edge the entire time trying to solve the mystery on your own, and in the end you’ll find the twist is nothing you could have guessed. Is Liane’s writing so predictable from it’s unpredictability? One could say so. I suggest this book be read by YOU! Yes, you! You’ll be glad you did in the end.
