I finished this quickly one, because it was a library book (I just got in under the wire); and two, Liane Moriarity is always engaging. I really, really wish she didn’t hate fat people so much though I know she’s a middle-aged white lady and that’s the “low-fat and diet everything” generation, but it’s really pervasive. She also has the “tough it out” mentality about marriages that really should end, but that’s a boomer battle cry, too. All this sounds like I didn’t like the book when I loved it. I kind of figured out what was going on, but that doesn’t take anything away from the author’s planning; I’m just kind good at figuring out the pattern of stories lol. I was hoping one aspect wouldn’t be there, but it honestly only made sense, too. Moriarity is a master at misleading and misdirection, and this one didn’t disappoint.
