Did Not Enjoy: Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

I’m going to keep this short as I don’t see the point of a long discussion of a book I did not enjoy that much.

Ok, this will be a quick one. So quick that I’m just placing my Goodreads review of the book right here:

Liane Moriarty is one of two authors whose books I will read no matter how bad the reviews are.
I’ve read all (except Nine Perfect Strangers) of Liane Moriarty’s books and this one is my least favourite. As always, the writing is entertaining and brilliant. Character development, normally a strong suit of Liane Moriarty is not stellar in this one. I found myself endearing more to the “supporting characters” of Tiffany and Vid. We all understand about keeping the suspense at what happened on the “day of the barbecue” — words that are splayed throughout the book. But goodness, can we just get on about what really happened on the day of the blasted barbecue? Granted, it was a tragic event but this was dragged on far too long that I found myself losing interest. This certainly could have been much shorter and could have done with less rumination and reflection, per character, about that day.
Well I was still entertained by the writing so 2 stars. I’m still a fan and will continue reading her works (Just got a hold of Nine Perfect Strangers), so hope that’s a better one. 

So, just like a true Liane Moriarty fan, what did I do after I finished this book feeling unimpressed?

I promptly got her latest book, Nine Perfect Strangers. Please let this one be better.
