Moriarty had me with “Big Little Lies”… and than again with “What Alice Forgot”. I could not wait to get my hands on this one. Page after page, there is only one question you will keep asking: What happened at the BBQ? Actually, that’s what kept the pages turning. I loved her back and forth in time style of writing, as with previous books. However, you do get to a point where now you’re just annoyed because you still don’t know what happened at the BBQ, and you are nearing the end of the book!! Her character development with the main characters Clementine and Erika is remarkable, especially as we get to see a shift in their relationship towards the end of the novel. It would have been nice if she developed some of the other main characters more. Overall, she does a great job exploring the underlying theme- how life changes forever by one event that occurred in the blink of an eye. Not my favorite Moriarty book, but if you are a fan of hers, you will like it if not love it!
