Liane Moriarty has a new mystery book for your book club

Liane Moriarty has a new mystery book for your book club

Liane Moriarty, the author of Big Little Lies and Nine Perfect Strangers, has a new twisty crime fiction tale of mystery and family drama.

If you’ve enjoyed her bestselling books that became award-winning, star-studded TV shows, you’ll be glad to hear Liane Moriarty has penned another book following the same vein.

Apples Never Fall, out now, flits back and forth between past and present (like in Big Little Lies), following four siblings in search of their mother who has gone missing and the period just before when a stranger entered their lives.

“From the outside, the Delaneys appear to be an enviably contented family,” reads the book’s description. “Even after all these years, former tennis coaches Joy and Stan are still winning tournaments, and now that they’ve sold the family business they have all the time in the world to learn how to ‘relax’. Their four adult children are busy living their own lives, and while it could be argued they never quite achieved their destinies, no-one ever says that out loud. But now Joy Delaney has disappeared and her children are re-examining their parents’ marriage and their family history with fresh, frightened eyes. Is her disappearance related to their mysterious house guest from last year? Or were things never as rosy as they seemed in the Delaney household?

As with Big Little Lies and Nine Perfect Strangers, it’s a bending, slow-burning tale with a suspenseful ending that will keep you guessing, with family resentments and page-turning tensions.

Apples Never Fall will also make it to the small screen, having been optioned for TV by Heyday Television, a joint venture between NBCUniversal International Studios and Harry Potter and Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood producer David Heyman.

Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty is out now.
