From Liane Moriarty, author of #1 New York Times bestsellers The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies, comes an unforgettable novel defined by her signature sharp wit, page-turning storyline, and lovable and eccentric characters.

Sophie Honeywell always wondered if Thomas Gordon was the one who got away. He was the perfect boyfriend, but on the day he was going to propose, she broke his heart. A year later he married his travel agent, while Sophie has been mortifyingly single ever since. Now Thomas is back in her life because Sophie has unexpectedly inherited his aunt Connie's house on Scribbly Gum Island—home of the famously unsolved Munro Baby mystery.

Sophie moves onto the island and begins a new life as part of an unconventional family, where it seems everyone has a secret. Grace, a beautiful young mother, is feverishly planning a shocking escape from her perfect life. Margie, a frumpy housewife, has made a pact with a stranger, while dreamy Aunt Rose wonders if maybe it's about time she started making her own decisions.

As Sophie's life becomes increasingly complicated, she discovers that sometimes you have to stop waiting around—and come up with your own fairy-tale ending.

I found it difficult to gather what was going on, too many characters introduced before the
plot got underway....mysterious yet amusing...none of the characters stood out for me

Lovely story of two sisters and their progeny, living with the mystery of a couple who disappeared and the infant they left behind. Although this sounds ominous, most of the story is far from it. The book is delightful, well-written, and a good read.

This book is tough to review. It was not what I expected. I went into the book thinking it would be a light, fun read but it is not. But this is definitely not a bad thing. I felt that the parts of the story that touched on the very serious issue of post-partum depression were convincing and felt very real. I grew attached to the interesting and dysfunctional family that the book focuses on. I ended up guessing the main mystery, but I loved the unexpected twist at the end that seemingly came out of nowhere. Overall, this was a pretty great read by one of my favourite authors.

Really enjoyed this book and loved the characters - was kind of sad when I reached the last chapter as I wanted to see what happens next with the Scribbly Gum residents.

Another good book by Moriarty. A step up from her previous, this one shows how she began moving toward adding "issues" to her novels. Here we have postpartum depression, a disorder often trivialized or discredited outright. I also liked the mystery, the characters and the blossoming of Veronika, Margie and especially Rose.

Another good book from Ms. Moriarty. This one is laugh out funny.
