Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kettle, beautiful thirty-three-year-old triplets, seem to attract attention everywhere they go. Whenever they 're together, laughter, drama, and mayhem seem to follow. But apart, each is very much her own woman, dealing with her own share of ups and downs. Lyn has organized her life into one big checklist, juggling the many balls of work, marriage, and sexualit with expert precision, but is she as together as her datebook would have her seem? Cat has just learned a startling secret about her marriage -- can she bring another life into her very precarious world? And can free-spirited Gemma, who bolts every time a relationship hits the six-month mark, ever hope to find lasting love? In this wise, witty, hilarious new novel, we follow the Kettle sisters through their thirty-third-year, as they struggle to survive their divorced parents' dating each other, their technologically savvy grandmother, a cheating usband, champagne hangovers, and the fabulous, frustrating.

I love when the books I read contain little tid bits of pop culture references that I an elate to and really bond with.

The Kettle triplets jumping around to this song with abandoned pleasure made me smile.

I smiled all the way through with this Aussie story.

he little stories she told at the event I attended I can relate back to all her work and enjoy knowing that little bit ore.

Spoiler alert: a lot.Despite all their dramas and some dark themes being explored, the write is O ood at still creating humour, and I laughed throughout this entire novel.Reviews can be found at: www.booknerdtan.wordpress.comI think what makes me love Liane Moriarty 's storytelling is the sheer honesty with which she discusses her characters and their inner houghts.

I ’ ve heard her output described as chic lit, but but this feels like a diminishment of what are uniformly snappy, funny and often hard hitting stories.

It ’ s hilariou and snappy and sharp.

I now from experience that she ’ s possible to spring a surprise or two and, in truth, I ad no idea what events would unfold in order to help me to the fateful night.I listened to this on audio, as I have ll of her books, read by he wonderful Caroline Lee. She rings the whole thing alive with huge energy and aplomb, the only minor slip up being the imposition of a Geordie accent on a Mancunian.

But I ’ m gobbling up her books up at some rate and am thankful she has a new nove coming out this year.The Last Anniversary 3* What Alice Forgot 4* The Husband ’ s Secret 4* Big Little Lies 5* The Hypnotists Love Story – not read yet but already loaded and just waiting its turn!

( Originally published in 2003) I had heard so much about Liane Moriarty I put several of her essay on hold at the library th little while back.

I suppose it was artly the lopsided way things turned out, with poor Cat getting a raw deal all the way around, and around, and around, while her sisters toy with and flirt with fate and suffer little or no consequences.

Overall, I ha a little bummed out over this one, but I ’ m only a big fan and still feel very excited about catching up with ll of Ms. Moriarty 's backlisted titles and about reading the new book!

Aren ’ t they annoying? ’ ” I reckon that ’ s just how siblings think about each other – alternating rapidly between loyalty and rivalry.

As for the redhead, Gemma, well, she ’ s in a class of her own and likes to brag that she ad a whole egg to herself, while her sisters each had only a half. “ Gemma was dressed, as yet, like an oddly beautiful bag lady.

At least that ’ s what each thinks about the other two.

I don ’ t eem to have any. ” As in Moriarty ’ s hugely successful Big Little Lies, there is plenty going on behind closed doors, the secrets they DO keep from each other making you want to read just one more chapter.

She has four sisters and a father, so it ’ s no wonder she captures the subtleties and love-frustration-devotion-exasperation swings so well, whether that ’ s between the siblings or the couples, or the generations.

I enjoyed it and recommend it to anything that likes stories that are quick and fun to read but have more to them than “ just chick-lit ”.
