Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty is a book that I started reading a few days ago and I am finding it very hard to put down. Each of the main characters are so well-developed and the mystery of the murder is so intriguing. The Australian setting is also idyllic and it has me lusting for a holiday. The plot really reminds me of Desperate Housewives and if the book is anything like the HBO mini-series, I am going to be all over it!

A murder...A tragic accident...Or just parents behaving badly? What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place.
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the little lies that can turn lethal.
Book Quotes: Big Little Lies
“That doesn’t sound like a school trivia night,” said Mrs. Patty Ponder to Marie Antoinette. “That sounds like a riot.”
She read the text: Merry Christmas, Mum. Dad, Bonnie, Skye and me all here at the shelter from 5:30 a.m.! I’ve already peeled forty potatoes! It’s a beautiful experience being able to contribute like this. Feel so blessed.
“She’s never peeled a freaking potato in her life,” muttered Madeline as she texted back: That’s wonderful darling. Merry XMAS to you too, see you soon, xxx!
