Big Little Lies
The #1 New York Times bestseller that Entertainment Weekly called “a surefire hit.”

NOW AN EMMY-WINNING HBO® LIMITED SERIES STARRING REESE WITHERSPOON, NICOLE KIDMAN, SHAILENE WOODLEY, ALEXANDER SKARSGÅRD, LAURA DERN, ADAM SCOTT, AND ZOË KRAVITZ FROM THE DIRECTOR OF WILD AND DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, JEAN-MARC VALLÉE, AND WRITER DAVID E. KELLEY

 
Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal...
A murder…a tragic accident…or just parents behaving badly?  
What’s indisputable is that someone is dead. But who did what?

Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).

Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.

New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.

Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

One of the Top Ten Books of the Year—People
 
At the heart of The Husband’s Secret is a letter that’s not meant to be read…
 
My darling Cecilia,
If you’re reading this, then I’ve died…
 
Imagine your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret—something with the potential to destroy not only the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. And then imagine that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive…
 
Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all—she’s an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. But that letter is about to change everything—and not just for her. There are other women who barely know Cecilia—or each other—but they, too, are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret.

Truly Madly Guilty

THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, FROM THE AUTHOR OF BIG LITTLE LIES, now an HBO series.

Winner of Goodreads Choice Award for Best Fiction
Entertainment Weekly's Best Beach Bet
A USA Today Hot Books for Summer Selection
A Miami Herald Summer Reads Pick

Here’s the best news you’ve heard all year: Not a single page disappoints....The only difficulty with Truly Madly Guilty? Putting it down.Miami Herald

“Captivating, suspenseful…tantalizing.” ―People Magazine

Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It’s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?

In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty turns her unique, razor-sharp eye towards three seemingly happy families.

Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit busy, life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If there’s anything they can count on, it’s each other.

Clementine and Erika are each other’s oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last-minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don’t hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vid’s larger-than-life personalities there will be a welcome respite.

Two months later, it won’t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can’t stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadn’t gone?

In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don’t say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.

Pequeñas mentiras (Spanish Edition)

Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley y Laura Dern son algunas de las protagonistas de la nueva miniserie de HBO basada en el libro Pequeñas mentiras

Algunas veces las pequeñas mentiras son las más letales

Madeline es una fuerza de la naturaleza. Es divertida, mordaz y apasionada, lo recuerda todo y no perdona a nadie. Ni a su exmarido y su nueva esposa, que se acaban de mudar junto a ella.
Celeste posee el tipo de belleza que hace que el mundo se pare a mirar. Aunque a veces puede parecer un poco nerviosa ¿quién no lo estaría con ese par de gemelos traviesos? Ella y su marido llevan una vida de ensueño, pero los sueños tienen un precio, y Celeste tiene que decidir cuánto está dispuesta a pagar.

Jane, madre soltera y nueva en la ciudad, es tan joven que la confunden con la niñera. Además alberga preocupaciones impropias de su edad y tiene ciertas dudas secretas sobre su hijo. Pero... ¿por qué?

Pequeñas mentiras es una extraordinaria historia sobre estas tres mujeres en una encrucijada, sobre exmaridos y segundas esposas, madres e hijas, escándalos de patio de colegios y las peligrosas mentirijillas que nos contamos a nosotros mismos para poder sobrevivir.

La crítica ha dicho...

«Es un libro realmente bueno. Divertido y siniestro a la vez. Da en el clavo con las relaciones entre madres.»

Stephen King

«Irresistible... Moriarty se ha convertido en una especialista en dejar al descubierto las grietas de lo que aparenta ser perfecto... Su perspicaz humor y agudo ingenio te hará seguir pasando las páginas hasta que descubras lo que ocurre.»

People Magazine

«Leer una novela de Moriarty es un poco como beberse un Cosmopolitan aderezado con arsénico... Pequeñas mentiras es una lectura divertida, entretenida y, a veces, perturbadora.»

USA Today

«Una novela que te convertirá en un ávido devorador de libros... Moriarty ha escrito otro éxito absorbente y satírico.»

The Huffington Post

«Fascinante e inteligente... Una estupenda lectura llena de agudos destellos sobre las múltiples variedades de las relaciones humanas: madre-hijo, marido-mujer (y exmujer) y, fundamentalmente, sobre el poderoso vínculo de la amistad femenina.»
