Liane Moriarty Reveals New Book Called Apples Never Fall

Liane MoriartyExciting news for fans of Liane Moriarty as it has been announced her new book for 2021 is called ‘Apples Never Fall’ and will be released on 14th September 2021.

‘The Sunday Times’ and ‘New York Times’ Number One international bestselling author’s eagerly awaited novel will once again take us behind the closed doors of seemingly tranquil suburbia.

What the back cover says –

From the outside, the Delaneys appear to be an enviably contented family.

Even after all these years, former tennis coaches Joy and Stan are still winning tournaments, and now they’ve sold the family business they have all the time in the world to learn how to ‘relax’.

Their four adult children are busy living their own lives, and while it could be argued they never quite achieved their destinies, no-one ever says that out loud.

But now Joy Delaney has disappeared and her children are re-examining their parents’ marriage and their family history with fresh, frightened eyes.

Is her disappearance related to their mysterious house guest from last year?

Or were things never as rosy as they seemed in the Delaney household?

The author of ‘Big Little Lies’ and ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ expertly peels away the layers of a family to reveal heartfelt truths, deeply felt wounds and moments of humanity with her signature wit and expert observational powers.

‘Apples Never Fall’ is set to be one of the biggest books of the autumn – 3 million copies of Liane’s books have sold in the UK and over 14 million worldwide. Her previous novel ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ has sold nearly half a million copies since its release in 2018; the paperback spent 20 consecutive weeks in the top 10 and was the biggest paperback fiction title released in 2019. The TV adaptation, starring Nicole Kidman alongside Melissa McCarthy and Luke Evans, recently finished filming and is due to be released this year by Hulu.

I’ve loved all of Liane’s books and eagerly look forward to this release.

You can pre-order ‘Apples Never Fall’ from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 14th September 2021.

Nine Perfect Strangers By Liane Moriarty

Nine Perfect Strangers‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ is the latest book by Liane Moriarty.

The retreat at health-and-wellness resort Tranquillum House promises total transformation. Nine stressed city dwellers are keen to drop their literal and mental baggage, and absorb the meditative ambience while enjoying their hot stone massages. Miles from anywhere, without cars or phones, they have no way to reach the outside world. Just time to think about themselves, and get to know each other. Watching over them is the resort’s director, a woman on a mission. But quite a different one from any the guests might have imagined. For behind the retreat’s glamorous facade lies a dark agenda.These nine perfect strangers have no idea what’s about to hit them.

I read this book a while ago and it’s taken until now to finally write down my thoughts.

Liane Moriarty has become one of my favourite authors, after reading ‘The Husband’s Secret’, I had to read every book by her and her latest book was just as addictive, so much so that Nicole Kidman has brought the rights to the book to bring it to screens.

As per Liane’s style of writing, the book starts just at the moment that something major has happened and the story then flashes back to the key moments leading up to the event.

The narrative is seen through the narrative of nine guests who have come to Tranquillum House, hoping to have a relaxing time and an escape from the problems that have been affecting them. Masha, the owner of the resort, using alternative medicine, treatments and her unique personality will help the people face their demons, but in true Liane’s style twisted way of writing, nothing is ever straightforward for the unfortunate characters.

There’s a great mix of personalities in this story, from the eccentric Masha, Francis the struggling author who has fallen in love with the wrong man, whilst Napoleon and his wife and daughter are grieving the sudden death of their son. All the people who have signed up to this retreat, are hoping the programme will change their lives for the better.

A claustrophobic tale riddled with uncertainty and suspense, ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ is a tense page turning thriller that gets even more dramatic with every line!

You can buy ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
