STAR RATINGS GUIDE

THE BIRDICT

This was my first Liane Moriarty listen and cemented me as an instant devotee. I was immediately intrigued by the concept and the setting. It's always nice to be transported to a glamorous world, especially through Alice's sharply observant gaze.

The way the story unfolds is smart and engaging and engrossing. I wanted to know how the marriage had changed so drastically. I wanted to solve the mysteries posed along the way.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

Caroline Lee has read all the Liane Moriarty's audiobooks and it's easy to see why. She has this languid Australian drawl that sweeps along dreamily and is pure ear candy.

Obviously Moriarty's other books are similar in feel, probably The Husband's Secret most of all. I'd also say this was like a more upbeat Little Fires Everywhere.

ABOUT

What Alice Forgot

THE BLURB

When Alice Love surfaces from a beautiful dream to find she's been injured in a gym, she knows that something is very wrong – she hates exercise. Alice's first concern is her baby – she's pregnant with her first child, and she's desperate to see her husband, Nick, whom she knows will be worried about her. But Alice isn't pregnant. And Nick isn't worried. Alice is the mother of three children and her hostile husband is in the process of divorcing her. Alice has lost ten years of her life.

In the days that follow, small bubbles of the past rise to the surface, and Alice is forced to confront uncomfortable truths. It turns out forgetting might be the most memorable thing that's ever happened to her.
