Another enjoyable read by Moriarty! I don’t know if it’s the narrator, but Big Little Lies and The Husband’s Secrets have both been engrossing and addictive reads.
This isn’t as good as Big Little Lies simply because the stories of the characters aren’t as intertwined or as mysterious. The Tess narrative wasn’t necessary, beyond just making the reader be able to empathize with Connor Whitby, but I still very much enjoyed the thought process and wit.
Overall, it’s got the same qualities as Big Little Lies: witty middle aged women, a mystery that’s not really a mystery but more of a chance to explore character dynamics, and lots of page turning and hilarity infused moments. There’s just something about Moriarty’s writing that keeps me from getting bored.
