Big Little Lies Book Summary



From the author of Nine Perfect StrangersTruly Madly Guilty, and The Husband’s Secret comes the #1 New York Times bestselling novel about the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

A murder...A tragic accident...Or just parents behaving badly? What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place.

Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the little lies that can turn lethal.

  • Loved it!

    By CeceDonnie
    I have been waiting all summer for a book this good! Seriously could not put down. Can't wait for her next book!
  • Another hit!

    By VinoDiva8
    I read Husband's Secret & What Alice Forgot & enjoyed them, so when I had a chance to pre-buy, I did. I love her style. The "mystery" factor that the books I've read have, is what draws me, and I love the OMG, factor, when you find "something" out and it just gets yelled out! This book also had me yelling out loud, and my husband is used to being ignored when I read a book from this author... Because I want to "know" the "mystery" and to the author"s style, it really doesn't happen till close to the end!
  • I LOVED this book!

    By FinnAli
    Oh boy can Liane Moriarty tell a story. I’d read “What Alice Forgot” and “The Husband’s Secret” so I knew she was an excellent author. “Big Little Lies” is now my favorite of the three. I downloaded it onto my iPad on Friday afternoon and finished Saturday evening. I couldn’t turn pages fast enough! A MUST READ!!!


  • To crazy but oh so true

    By SweetGraphix
    This book was off the chain. That means good to those. (that don’t know) I collect books that I consider to be a “classic” & one I’ll read numerous times. It’s going in my library for sure. Girl’s ya gotta get it. Easy read with a glass of wine...or not.
  • Impossible to stop turning the pages

    By Kennerrrr
    I tried this book in an effort to rekindle my love for books. I picked this book up on a Thursday afternoon and had it finished by Monday night. I am a full-time college student who also has busy weekends. I couldn’t stop thinking about what would happen next in the plot line. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes an eerie drama.

    By Am book reader
    What a great book! Read in in one rainy weekend. The buildup to trivia night is delightful with the snide comments of the school mums and dads. I definitely enjoyed it and recommend it highly.
  • Entertaining and enjoyable

  • Great book

    By PJSwindle
    I thought the show was good but then decided to read the book just to see if it were better. The book, by far was better than the show. I recommended this book to many.
  • Amazing book

    Love this book.
  • !!!!

    By Bj_Watson12
    The best book I’ve read! If not the best, definitely Top 3! I read this after I watched the show, and I could NOT put it down! Love the characters, the storyline, the writing. Everything about it was amazing! A few differences from the show, but still great. I hope to write something even half as good one day!
