The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty REVIEW + NEW RELEASE

The Last Anniversary      Amazon     Website   Facebook

From the bestselling author of The Husband's Secret comes a compelling story where nothing is as simple as it seems.

Seventy-three years have passed since sisters Rose and Connie Doughty found an abandoned baby in the only other house on their little island, Scribbly Gum. And since then the 'Munro Baby Mystery' has brought them fame and fortune.

But now, with Connie dead and newcomer Sophie Honeywell inheriting her home, and everyone around them tirelessly trying to solve the mystery, Rose begins to wonder if they made the right decision all those years ago. How much longer they can cover up the truth behind the mystery that has sustained their community for four generations? And what other secrets might be revealed?

Review ahead!

Okay, so I'm willing to admit I have writer's crush on Liane Moriarty. It all began with The Husband's Secret and now I'm here. As can be expected with every Liane Moriarty book, there's a mystery involved, and again as can be expected it's a good one.

This story has two beginnings, the death of Connie and the birth of the Munro Baby. From the second that the "Munro Baby Mystery" became news it has turned into a profitable family business for the small island Rose and Connie live on.
The Munro Baby is now a great-grandmother and we get to interact with her grandchildren as they deal with adulthood. Through one of her grandchildren, Sophie is introduced to the family with Connie leaving her house to her in her will. 
Along with the other inhabitants of the island, Sophie is about to find out the secrets she's always wanted to know.

The book also focuses on issues such as exploring sexuality and post natal depression.
