Apples Never Fall Summary
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’m a fan of Liane Moriarty, but her latest book Nine Perfect Strangers didn’t impress, so I was apprehensive about losing my favorite author but decided to pre-order Apples Never Fall and found this book enjoyable. Moriarty’s wry humor and complex family dynamics are back. Enjoy the book!
1.0 out of 5 stars Returned for refund

Full disclosure, I returned this book for a refund having not gotten very far into the book. Boring. Boring. Boring. I don’t care what happened to the mother. I hope she ran away and is living her best life. I don’t care who the mystery girl really is. I don’t care if the children get divorced or not or solve whatever other issues they have. This is the first book I’ve ever read where I don’t care about a single character. I wish I could add more, but there was nothing about this book to keep my interest even though I tried several times. I suggest downloading a sample first before buying. I mean, one chapter ends with one of the brothers getting a bad leg cramp while getting a pedicure. Was that supposed to be a cliffhanger of sorts? 😂🤦🏻
2.0 out of 5 stars So not worth the wait

I had anxiously been awaiting the release of this book. It was one of the most boring, anticlimactic nook of hers. It was like someone else wrote it. I struggled to make it through the ridiculous plot. I would have given it only one star, but tennis was a central theme in the book, so I gave it two stars. I do not recommend unless you are an insomniac and need help falling asleep.

Liane Moriarty is the author of 3 of my favorite books. She is usually a wonderful storyteller. This book is a big “who cares”. The characters were all unlikeable, the plot was so boring it was near impossible to get through and the ending was incredibly anticlimactic. What happed? Where is the author I love? Don’t waste your time on this one. 100% not worth it. Time and money I can never get back.
2.0 out of 5 stars Smooth and Sweet but No Nutritional Value
Reviewed in the United States on September 16, 2021
Apples Never Fall, the new book by Liane Moriarty is the very definition of empty calories with no redeeming value. Liane Moriarty is talented, skilled and experienced and thus produces a professional product even though upon any kind of close examination this novel is less than the sum of its parts. Moriarty has been very successful writing good domestic thrillers but this reader got the impression that Moriarty needs new challenges for her prodigious talents. I hope she finds them but Apples Never Fall isn’t it.
Just what is wrong? Shallow characters, no character development and muddy motives mar every section of the book. The plot is nonsensical and the lack of comprehensible plot growing out of character actions makes the entire book fall flat. Because of these flaws the book is neither a domestic thriller or a literary examination of family dysfunction. The book ends up being nothing much at all. I’m tired of the taste for O’Henry endings, but the supposed twist just isn’t believable and is telegraphed from the beginning. Because Moriarty is so skilled the reader doesn’t notice unless thinking critically. It is the literary equivalent of drinking soda or eating a candy bar, but not as a special treat. Instead this book is the kind of thing you’re sorry you ate as you struggle with disappointment and nausea. This reads like a waste of time, money, calories and treats. Apples Never Fall is a true disappointment because Moriarty has excelled at balancing genuine insight into people’s behavior with an engrossing read in the past but she failed here.
