I loved The Husband's Secret, so after finishing it I immediately read What Alice Forgot, which I also loved, and The Hypnotist's Love Story, which I did not love at all. Months passed, and then I read Big Little Lies and loved it, so I thought I'd try another older one. I think The Last Anniversary could have been a good 50 pages shorter - at times I felt like I was reading the same thing for the second or third time, just in slightly different words - but overall, it was satisfying. Not as good as the three that I loved, but better than the Hypnotist's Love Story. As usual, serious issues (post-partum depression and verbal abuse, just to name two) are dealt with in a light and easy but still credible manner. The multitude of characters did get just a little confusing at times, but they were all interesting enough. And the ending made me happy.
