I loved ‘What Alice Forgot’ when I read it for the first time years ago and subsequently have pre-bought every book Liane Moriarty has created - she really is the queen of domestic suspense, so I had high hopes going into ‘Nine Strangers’ and I'm happy to report I was once again delighted and madly swiping the pages into the wee hours of the morning.
I love that literally Nine Strangers come together at a wellness resort... however as it’s a Liane Moriarty creation, there's a heap of secrets waiting to be revealed and unlike her other reads this was funny!
The premise is so unique, literally nine strangers head off to a health resort, hoping to return home different people. Set in Australia, Tranquillem House is a health and wellness resort that many clients claim transformed their lives. The latest batch of arrivals get considerably more than the diet, light exercise, therapy and spa treatments they had signed up for...
There is plenty of sly humour and wit in Moriarty's story and I just simply can’t say much more without spoilers... however I have to say made me think twice about trying a health retreat!
