Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can't even admit to themselves. Amid all the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be. Frances Welty, the formerly bestselling romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House and is immediately intrigued by her fellow guests, including the charismatic owner and director. Could this person really have the answers Frances didn't even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer--or should she run while she still can? And it's not long before every guest is asking the same question. -- adapted from summary on book jacket.

Great start, well most of the book, then seemed to get lost, plot fizzled. But I liked her writing and will give other books a try. An easy read.

Not my favorite of hers, but still a decent read. It definitely kept me in suspense, but I was still waiting for more to happen. Think I wanted a greater backstory for all the characters, except Frances, where there was too much of the story centered around her.

I liked this book...good characters,really different plot with several twists. I thought it was a satirical view of what "therapy" is and who are the "professionals " who give the therapy. An entertaining read.

I was with her throughout most of the book but I hated the weird turn it took near the end, and the ending is atrocious. It's a breezy read, though.

Was really into the book, thought there was a good "story" behind it...didn't care for the end!

Read in audio format/CD. It's a hoot! It kind of reminded me of a Carl Hiassen story except instead of the swamps of Florida, it's in the barrens of north Australia, except with a beach view. Strangers get to know each other at a retreat as nefarious things are imposed on them by the spa-owner-and-minions. Thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a late 2018 best-selling non-fiction bestselling author twist, which I'm not revealing because it was fun to guess and be surprised.

Disappointed. Long and boring.

I found Moriarty’s latest book disappointing. It didn’t cause the “I must know Now!” reaction I had with her other books. It was tepid and I was disappointed in the plot, although some of the characters were endearing.
