I have an author crush on Liane Moriarty. Her protagonists are strong three-dimensional women who are funny, witty, and I usually want to be their friend. ~Sheila
Lyn, Cat, and Gemma are thirty-three year old triplets. Alone, each is stunning, together, they turn heads constantly. While they are a force to be reckoned with, each carries her own burden…
Lyn views life as a check list as she marks things off her to do list day by day
Cat is dealing with painful facts about her marriage
Gemma is finally considering staying in a relationship longer than 6 months.
When all else seems to be falling apart…they can always count on each other.
Of course I chose this read because it is Moriarty. Yes, Moriarty of The Husband’s Secret, Big, Little Lies, and What Alice Forgot. That Moriarty.
Three Wishes is an older title for Moriarty and I felt the difference in her character development. While the three sisters were witty and funny and all that I enjoy about her books, the story line left me drifting a bit and honestly I can not even tell you what the big plot moment was.
While the book is fine, I think I am so used to the power packed punch reads that Moriarty has been cranking out the past couple of years that I set the bar too high on this one and to me…
it was left wanting.

It sounds interesting; I will look for it.
I hope you enjoy it Betty!
I am watching out for The Last Anniversary which should be published later this month as I’ve loved the three you mentioned and loved them all. As you say this author has a knack of portraying women as they actually are, especially in Little Lies.
I listened to The Last Anniversary on audio last month – I liked it! https://bookjourney.net/2014/08/31/the-last-anniversary-by-liane-moriarty/
LOVED her novel, The Husband’s Secret. Will have to check her other books out!
I did too! That was the first I had listened to of hers!
I have enjoyed the two novels read of Liane Moriarty, certainly an entertaining and thought provoking author. I sometimes find earlier books don’t come up to the level of later books by an author, but still interesting to read them and see how they have developed. I quite like the sound of this one.
I agree, these earlier books of hers are not the ones that would have made me a fan – but she has definitely now found her niche!
I’ve only two of her books and just loved them all. I would still like to read the two I’ve missed.
I hope you do Mystica!
I’ve read the big three by Moriarty that you mentioned in your post, and really liked them. I picked up an older work (it has hypnotist in the title I think?) the other day. Can’t wait to see if I have the same experience you did with her earlier stuff.
Oh yeah! The Hypnotist one I do not think is that old… maybe 2012? I am curious about that one as well!
That’s too bad! I just finished Big Little Lies earlier this week and was blown away by it. I also loved The Husband’s Secret. I’ll probably stick to her newer titles.
