Cecilia Fitzpatrick, devoted mother, successful Tupperware business owner and efficient P&C President, has found a letter from her husband.

"For my wife, Cecilia Fitzpatrick, to be opened only in the event of my death"

But Cecilia's husband isn't dead, he's on a business trip. And when she questions him about it on the phone, Cecilia senses something she hasn't experienced before. John-Paul is lying.

What happens next changes Cecilia's formerly blissful suburban existence forever, and the consequences will be life-changing for the most unexpected people.

              This book was much better than I expected. I had read a newspaper article about the author and how she was really not very well known in Australia but very popular overseas so I was expecting a much less well written book. However, I really enjoyed this. I could easily identify with the characters and the sting in the tail of the story was a complete surprise. I gave it to a friend as soon as I had finished and she couldn't put it down either!

                I was agreeably surprised by this book. I thought it would be a silly chick lit but it was really well written, had a good plot and was very interesting. I won't be so judgemental in future and have ordered another of her books.

                          I discovered Liane Moriarty after reading one of her books for our book club. I find her books very readable with interesting twists and moral dilemmas. I like the fact they are set in places I have lived.
