Sam and Clementine would define their life as full and satisfying. They have two beautiful little girls and a life that works for them. Sam is just starting a new job and Clementine is rehearsing for a cellist position that would be the job offer of a lifetime.
Erika is Clementines oldest friend dating back to grade school. The two know each other so well, but if Clementine were honest… she isn’t always sure why she is Erika’s friend. The start of their friendship still seeming a bit forced on her…..
When a barbecue invite by neighbors comes to Sam and Clementine as well as Erika and her husband, Clementine think s it is a brilliant idea. After all the neighbors Vid and Tiffany are larger than life people who know how to entertain. It might just be fun to get everyone together.
Two months later Sam and Clementine can barely stand to be in the same room together. They both question everything…. and they mostly question…. what if they hadn’t gone to the barbecue?
I love me some Liane Moriarty. I can add that I especially love her books on audio – they are a treat to listen to and this one was exceptional. Narrator Caroline Lee nails it with the fun diverse personalities and voices of the characters of Truly, Madly, Guilty. (You are going to LOVE Vid!). The enticing way she made her way through his book just added to my enjoyment of the story line.
Secrets kept, false truths… and all through the book as the tale unwinds I kept asking, “What the heck happened at that BBQ?” This book really does cover the choices we make can alter our worlds forever.
