BBQ Haze (20)

TRULY MADLY GUILTY by Liane Moriarty
Erika and Oliver take Clementine and Sam to Tiffany and Vid's house for a barbecue with the kids, but something goes wrong and no one wants to talk about it though that day has changed all of their lives. Told in nonlinear chapters from present day and "Day of the Barbecue," revelations are made about the families, their friendships, safety, and guilt. Told in multiple points of view, this novel may not has been as suspenseful if not for the order of the revealed events, but the characters are compelling, the narrative can be bitingly funny, and the insight into "regular suburban families" is well done. (Flatiron, 2016)
