Publisher's Summary

"My darling Cecilia, if you’re reading this, then I’ve died...."

Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all - she's an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia - or each other - but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret.

Acclaimed author Liane Moriarty has written a gripping, thought-provoking novel about how well it is really possible to know our spouses - and, ultimately, ourselves.

    "Preformance"

    It oddly skipped over a few words at a time. When switching chapters, it's seem to be a problem. Other than that it was great.

    "Rather boring"

    Story
    "Presents poor examples of reality that do help"

    Successful relationships require trust, commitment, introspection, and open communications. In most Western Cultures 50% of divorces are the result of infidelity. Most often people stay together claiming they don't wish to damage the children. These marriages are damaged and children are not stupid. They want security, but parents who remain cordial, make sure they continue to both remain active in the children's lives, sometimes add stepparents, additional grandparents, and stepsiblings who all also love them, can really benefit.

    Being blindsided by someone you loved and thought it had been reciprocal causes pain that is almost impossible to repair. There's almost always an excuse offered. But the reality is that personal desires were more important than protecting the relationship. You come in second or less in value. Parents can work together and protect the children without​ locking themselves into the prison of a mediocre. DON'T settle - all the women in this novel let the love of children rob them of their dreams, and children end up healthier by learning coping skills for real life problems.

    "Great story"

    I found this book a built difficult to get into but then suddenly I couldn't put it down. It was interesting how the story came together.
    Also I loved the epilogue. Makes you think how life can change in an instant. Great thought provoking story.

    "Delicious Lies Build a Complex, Engaged Plot"

    Nicely Written Novel. It was a little slow to start, but kept my interest until I was hooked. Makes a great summer read.

    Story
    "Lots of dull stereotypes, reasonably enjoyable"

    Like most Liane Moriarty books, the storyline was well crafted and gripping enough to keep you listening -- but tired of gender roles, and stereotypes can induce some eye rolls, in this one its mostly directed at one particular 'overweight' character. Over and over the author flippantly remarks on the character's presumed unattractiveness. It's wildly boring and incredibly frequent.

    Otherwise, there is some surprisingly good observational writing in here and ha story has enough twists and turns to keep the listener engaged.
