Synopsis

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.

    save yourself the time and energy

    i'm actually quite fascinated by the people saying they couldn't put this book down. i was thoroughly disappointed. after having read The Husband's Secret, Big Little Lies, and What Alice Forgot (and i thought those books were great), it was a struggle to get through this one. it legitimately felt like a chore. why did i not stop reading it? because i was hoping it would redeem itself in the end, which it very slightly did (but not enough to categorize it as a good book). if you're absolutely bored out of your mind, give it a go. if you've got other books that you're interested in reading, read those first. all of them.

    Cozy read for a lazy weekend

    A lot of characters to keep track of, which was a bit tedious and jumbled up sometimes. But some good twists in the plot. Somewhere between OK and good story.

    The Last Anniversary

    This author is usually excellent, but I really struggled to get through this story. Too many words for so little substance. Really disappointed!

    Okay

    It was okay, it wasn't overly exciting. I had a little trouble finishing it, I liked some of her other books better.
