'Audiobook narrator Caroline Lee’s voice is an irresistible, visceral joy; like the best audiobook narrators, her delivery is endlessly malleable, shifting nimbly across accent, register and tone to create a sense that one is inside the story rather than peering in from the outside.' -- Farhad Manjoo, The New York Times

'[Lee] adds a crisp warmth that makes for an easy and absorbing listen.'- Alan Rosenberg, The Providence Journal

'Australian narrator Caroline Lee is an amazing performer who digs so deeply into her characters' personas that listeners will become addicted to each witty, insightful, and gutsy one.' -- AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award Winner

From Liane Moriarty, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Little Lies and Nine Perfect Strangers, comes Apples Never Fall, an audiobook that looks at marriage, siblings, and how the people we love the most can hurt us the deepest.

The Delaney family love one another dearly—it’s just that sometimes they want to murder each other . . .

If your mother was missing, would you tell the police? Even if the most obvious suspect was your father?

This is the dilemma facing the four grown Delaney siblings.

The Delaneys are fixtures in their community. The parents, Stan and Joy, are the envy of all of their friends. They’re killers on the tennis court, and off it their chemistry is palpable. But after fifty years of marriage, they’ve finally sold their famed tennis academy and are ready to start what should be the golden years of their lives. So why are Stan and Joy so miserable?

The four Delaney children—Amy, Logan, Troy, and Brooke—were tennis stars in their own right, yet as their father will tell you, none of them had what it took to go all the way. But that’s okay, now that they’re all successful grown-ups and there is the wonderful possibility of grandchildren on the horizon.

One night a stranger named Savannah knocks on Stan and Joy’s door, bleeding after a fight with her boyfriend. The Delaneys are more than happy to give her the small kindness she sorely needs. If only that was all she wanted.

Later, when Joy goes missing, and Savannah is nowhere to be found, the police question the one person who remains: Stan. But for someone who claims to be innocent, he, like many spouses, seems to have a lot to hide. Two of the Delaney children think their father is innocent, two are not so sure—but as the two sides square off against each other in perhaps their biggest match ever, all of the Delaneys will start to reexamine their shared family history in a very new light.

    I hate to pay for a book and not finish it, but I am halfway through, and it’s too dull to finish

  • Savannah S.

    Maybe I'm just not interested in tennis enough, but this was one of my least favorite Liane Moriarty books. I just didn't find this book as relatable, gripping and hilarious as all her other books. I enjoyed it, and loved the narrator as usual, but this book didn't have as satisfying of an ending as I would have liked.

  • Vicki K.

    If Liane Moriarty writes it, I’m going to read it and love it! This was such an entertaining book; with a great reader who’s also always wonderful, as well! It kept me guessing until the end. I love the family dynamic and the character development. I cared about all of them.

  • Kristen N.

    Moriarty and Lee are just getting better and better. My only disappointment is the book ending and the long wait for the next one. I would give them both 10 stars if I could.

  • Kristi Tiseo

    Not good at all. listened to as much as I could and finally quit. It didn't hold my attention, it goes off into so much minor detail in many different areas so you aren't sure if you're coming or going. The narrator was a bit too much for this book, maybe a little better with a male voice with less accent. This one is just a NO for me.

  • Christine L.

    Good book! Horrible narrator- had it not been for the plot-characters and writing, I would have had to put it away due to the horrible scratchy screeching voice.

  • Jennifer B.

    Great book! As exciting a read as Big Little Lies. I think I liked it even better!! The narrator does an amazing job and really brings the story to life. Do not miss out on this one.
