Publisher's Summary

“Here’s the best news you’ve heard all year: Not a single page disappoints....The only difficulty with Truly Madly Guilty? Putting it down." (Miami Herald)
The new novel from Liane Moriarty, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Husband’s Secret, Big Little Lies, and What Alice Forgot, about how sometimes we don’t appreciate how extraordinary our ordinary lives are until it’s too late.
Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It’s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong? In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty turns her unique, razor-sharp eye towards three seemingly happy families.
Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If there’s anything they can count on, it’s each other.
Clementine and Erika are each other’s oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don’t hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vid’s larger than life personalities there will be a welcome respite.
Two months later, it won’t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can’t stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadn’t gone?
In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don’t say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.


What the Critics Say

"Caroline Lee with Liane Moriarty makes one of the great pairings in audio publishing.... Lee's performance is emotionally shrewd and irresistibly entertaining, always fully invested in each character as he or she is by turns touched, puzzled, outraged, or horrified by unfolding events. Before you know it, Lee and Moriarty have you hopelessly hooked until you reach the dense, intricately interlocked heart of this wholly satisfying listen." (AudioFile)

seriously, stop analyzing and enjoy the ride

Would you listen to Truly Madly Guilty again? Why?

I can't believe that there are so many negative reviews. Yes it's long, but I haven't finished and can't wait to get into my car to commute and hear what happens next. It may not be as complex as some of her past works, but it makes you really think.Sometimes people are so critical because the can be. Remember... this is a's not real or life or death. It's entertainment. I LOVE this book and don't want it to end!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Clementine. And the girls. I love the way Caroline Lee portrays kids in a feisty manner!

Truly madly disappointing and mediocre

I apologize to all of those who have read my reviews recommending audiobooks by Liane Moriarty. I've read or listened to all of her books and have found the most recent six to be consistently wonderful. I really looked forward to the release of Truly Madly Guilty. Listening to this book was hard labor. The first half is both boring and confusing. There is none of the humor Moriarty usually delivers. The book improves in the second half but not by enough to make it better than three stars. Indeed, I can make a strong case for two stars.
