The number one bestseller Big Little Lies is now a HBO series starring Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Alexander Skarsgård and Shailene Woodey
Perfect family, perfect house, perfect life; Jane, Madeline and Celeste have it all . . . or do they? They are about to find out just how easy it is for one little lie to spiral out of control (from the publisher's description)
Absolutely brilliant, even better than The Husband's Secret. Loved it. Liane Moriarty has that rare Anne Tyler thing of being able to make fun of people while clearly having compassion for them. (Louise Candlish, Sunday Times bestselling author of SINCE I DON’T HAVE YOU)
The author of last year's bestseller, The Husband's Secret, is back with another sure-fire hit. Unputdownable (The Sun on Sunday)
It's not often that a book about murder mingled with domestic and sexual violence has you howling with laughter, but Moriarty pulls it off here ... Her ironic turn of phrases infuses even poignant moments with humour. Blending romance, comedy and mystery, this is a wonderful book - full of brains, guts and heart (The Sunday Mirror)
It all reads terrifyingly real, with the viciousness of the women at the school gates and the hell they can make each others' lives. It's a fine book (The Sunday Sport)
Moriarty is happy to thread a thin line between mummy lit and fluffy thriller. It's easy to get stuck into this book, thanks to neat plotting that keeps you guessing. Just dive right in because this book slips down as easily as a strawberry soufflé (Irish Independent)
A brilliantly plotted story with characters to care for who kept me reading, utterly gripped (Woman and Home Magazine)
Here at Company HQ we're all obsessed with Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. This juicy seaside-town murder mystery will be one of the biggest books this autumn (Company Magazine)
This fantastically written story, with its little clues casually dropped in along the way, will keep you guessing until the very end ... Another compelling, funny and thought-provoking winner from Liane Moriarty. Do whatever you can to get your hands on a copy - it's brilliant (Heat Magazine)

Big Little Lies
Now an HBO limited series
Perfect family, perfect house, perfect life; Jane, Madeline and Celeste have it all or do they? They are about to find out just how easy it is for one little lie to spiral out of control.
From the author of Truly Madly Guilty and The Husband's Secret comes a novel about the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
Jane hasn't lived anywhere for longer than six months since her son was born five years ago. She keeps moving in an attempt to escape her past. Now the idyllic coastal town of Pirriwee has pulled her to its shores and Jane feels as if she finally belongs. She finds friends in the feisty Madeline and the incredibly beautiful Celeste, two women with seemingly perfect lives - and their own secrets.
But at the start of a new term, an incident involving the children of all three women occurs in the playground, causing a rift between them and other parents. Minor at first but escalating fast, until the whispers and rumours become vicious and spiteful, and the truths blur into lies.
It was always going to end in tears, but no one thought it would end in murder.
Don't want Big Little Lies to end? Then why not order Liane Moriarty's new hit, Truly Madly Guilty.
Liane Moriarty is the author of seven novels: Three Wishes, The Last Anniversary, What Alice Forgot, The Hypnotist's Love Story, the worldwide phenomenon, The Husband's Secret, and Big Little Lies and Truly Madly Guilty. She lives in Sydney with her husband and two children.

Although this novel is set in Australia, the school, parents, children, situations and playground politics will be all too familiar to any parent – accusations of bullying, cliques of mothers gossiping in the playground, children being excluded from parties or play dates, competitive parents, the ‘class toy’ and volunteering at the school are all covered in this book, which weaves its way through the six months leading up to the implosion of events at the trivia night.
As well as looking at life through events at the school, we also read of the lives of the women; especially the three main characters of Madeline, Jane and Celeste. Although there are very serious issues tackled in the storyline, much of this book is also extremely funny. I have to say that I was completely gripped and loved every page. The characters, the situations and feelings of the women were all authentic and it is sure to appeal to anyone who has found that taking your child to school is not always simply about their education. Highly recommended, often moving and darkly humorous, this would be a fantastic choice for book groups, with much to discuss. Lastly, I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, for review.
So is it overhyped? Not at all.
I completely devoured this book. It was a gripping story. I really enjoyed the way it was written knowing from the beginning that somebody is going to die, and the inclusion of snippets of police interviews between the chapters. An most importantly I was kept guessing until the end.
I can’t recommend this book enough!
Trigger warning: Domestic Abuse
Single mum Jane has just moved to town. She's got her little boy in tow - plus the secret she's been carrying for five years.
On the first day of the school run she meets Madeline - a force to be reckoned with, who remembers everything and forgives no one - and Celeste, the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare, but is inexplicably ill at ease. They both take Jane under their wing - while careful to keep their own secrets under wraps.
But a minor incident involving the children of all three women rapidly escalates: playground whispers become spiteful rumours until no one can tell the truth from the lies.
Which is when the secrets come out - and now someone is going to pay with their life . . .
