The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty
Liane Moriarty has become one of my favorite authors recently, and this book did not disappoint.
Did you let the good one get away? That’s what Sophie is afraid has happened when she thinks back to her old boyfriend, Thomas. When Thomas unexpectedly calls her, she wonders if her luck is about to change.
Thomas is actually getting in touch with Sophie to let her know that his great aunt has left her house to Sophie. This is shocking to Sophie because she only briefly met the aunt but also because Thomas’s aunt and most of the rest of his family are the only ones who live on Scribbly Island, the home of the unsolved Munro Baby mystery.
Sophie’s life turns upside down as she get to know Thomas’s family and she takes the time to figure out what her role in all of this will be.
This is another quirky family full of laughter, secrets, heartbreak and more. I love how Liane Moriarty is able to take these characters and turn them into such complex beings who you feel like you have known forever.
