Description

From Liane Moriarty, author of #1 New York Times bestsellers The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies, comes an unforgettable novel defined by her signature sharp wit, page-turning storyline, and lovable and eccentric characters.

Sophie Honeywell always wondered if Thomas Gordon was the one who got away. He was the perfect boyfriend, but on the day he was going to propose, she broke his heart. A year later he married his travel agent, while Sophie has been mortifyingly single ever since. Now Thomas is back in her life because Sophie has unexpectedly inherited his aunt Connie's house on Scribbly Gum Island—home of the famously unsolved Munro Baby mystery.

Sophie moves onto the island and begins a new life as part of an unconventional family, where it seems everyone has a secret. Grace, a beautiful young mother, is feverishly planning a shocking escape from her perfect life. Margie, a frumpy housewife, has made a pact with a stranger, while dreamy Aunt Rose wonders if maybe it's about time she started making her own decisions.

As Sophie's life becomes increasingly complicated, she discovers that sometimes you have to stop waiting around—and come up with your own fairy-tale ending.

    Best book so far that I've read from this author! Loved each character and while reading, felt like i really knew each and every one of them personally. Spoiler Ahead: I would have liked Sophie and Callum to end up together with a mutual understanding/different course for Grace bc i loved Sophie's character and found Grace to be unworthy, but altogether wonderful read with a good little mystery surprise twist at the very end. Great book.
  • Great read!!!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the first page to the last. It was very well written and not at all predictable. I loved the characters. This is the first book I've read by this author but definitely not the last!

    I've read her other books and liked them. I liked the underlying story of this book but the Sophie plot was a total dud and disappointment.

    I really enjoyed this book. It's an easy read, but keeps you wanting to turn the page. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon on the couch.

    Best book I've read in a long while. Just the right amount of drama and mystery while staying cute and funny. I've read all of Liane's books and this is my fave.

    I downloaded this book because the other reviews made it sound like a good read. This book is written in the 3rd person and has the weirdest storyline I've ever read. I finished it, but only because I paid $1.99 (too much) for it. Don't bother...
  • It won't win a Pulitzer Prize....

    .....but I kept my interest for a few days on and off and I do agree it had way too many characters and I had to keep checking back to see who they were. Even at the end I still hadn't kept track of them. I'd call it a beach read, I guess.

    Good, but so much jumping from one character to another. Too many names to remember and place. But inspire of that, an enjoyable slow read
  • Fun read

    I never, ever write reviews but this book drew me out of the shadows. It's funny and revealing and makes you take a look at your own life and the secrets you might be keeping. Beautifully done!
