“Apples Never Fall” by Liane Moriarty

Genre: Domestic Fiction/Mystery Apples Never Fall
Publisher: Henry Holt & Company
Pub. Date: September 14, 2021

The four gorgeous red fruits on the book’s cover represent the four children of Stan and Joy Delaney, who founded a sought-after tennis academy.  All their offspring, including themselves, are “almost” good enough to make it to Wimbledon. The family falls apart questioning each other when Joy disappears.

Moriarty stumbles throughout this story.  The family dynamics are interesting yet the plot is unbelievable. Especially at the end when all is boringly explained.   And, we learn what the title is all about: the importance of parental love and guidance. Corny.

I received this Advance Review Copy (ARC) novel from the publisher at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
