“Here’s the best news you’ve heard all year: Not a single page disappoints....The only difficulty withTruly Madly Guilty? Putting it down." —Miami Herald

“Captivating, suspenseful…tantalizing.” —People Magazine

The new novel from Liane Moriarty, the #1 New York Times bestselling 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.


  • Just Ok-Don’t Compare with Big Little Lies

    By Melis196
    This was definitely a suspenseful read and finished with a nice bow but I thought there would be more of a twist or shock factor to the story overall. Not as intriguing Moriarty’s other titles.
  • Great read

    I couldn’t finish this book. It is maddening how long it took to get to the point! And it was extremely depressing. Had to stop reading. Ugh.
  • Truly madly guilty

    By NolaWin65
    This book is unnecessarily long. You should read long enough to learn the characters, skip to the middle to learn the incident, and skip to the end. Don’t bother reading the book; it will bore you to death.
  • Disappointed

    By rlgrubbs
    It was lengthy & would never end. I made myself finish it but wished I'd never started it. -not a page turner
  • Truly madly guilty

    By DB Railfan
    Loose ends, jumping around from 1 day to present, too much. Not her best work.
  • Suspense that never delivers.

    By Andrealynnstuartfarris
    It wasn't terrible, it just wasn't good. So much build up and suspense but I kept waiting for it to "get good" and it never did. Like reading a boring magazine on an airplane to pass the time.
  • Do NOT waste your time/$

    By BookLovinTreeHugger
    My book club selected this book and I was initially intrigued but the lead-up to the climax dragged and the climax was the epitome of anticlimactic. I grew to hate the characters and their inability to get on with life. Wine should be required to accompany this book-its the only way to get through it. Wish I could get my time and money back.
