Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The gimmick of intertwining the police questions with the events leading up to the murder didn't bother me that much. Even better was that there was some real ambiguity until the murder itself as to who it was (so many possibilities, each equally valid). But the predictable stuff, like who the bully was or whether Jane would come out of her shell, lessened the impact of that goodness. Add to that a lack of a real sense of place, despite our being told several times about the beach setting, and you get a three-star.
