Once again Liane Moriarty uses her unique, razor-sharp observational skills to sift through the emerging fault lines of seemingly happy families.
If only they'd said no....
What if they hadn't gone? That's the question Clementine can't stop asking herself.
It was just a backyard barbeque. They didn't know their hosts that well. They were friends of friends. They could so easily have said no. But she and her husband, Sam, said yes, and now they can never change what they did and didn't do that beautiful winter's day. Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One yapping dog. It's a normal weekend in the suburbs. What could possibly go wrong?

Loved this book the authors best work
Okay listen but not the best, too longwinded
Yes, the fact that for most of the story you do not know what has happened at the bar b q. It is like listening to a story but not knowing what it is about. It is far too long with not enough happening. So much time is spent on different aspects of their lives such as the audition and it's just not that interesting.
It takes too long to get going and I wasn't keen on most of the characters, I didn't find them particularly likeable. When you did find out what had happened in all its detail it was quite a good plot but by that time I wasn't really that bothered.
The narration takes a bit of getting used to but it is easy to differentiate between the characters.I liked Erica's mother at the meal, she was funny!
No, apart from reach the end.
It was a good listen in parts but the almost tedious detail spoils it. For me it needed more to happen early on or to be a bit shorter.
