Nine Perfect Strangers

Nine Perfect Strangers

by Liane Moriarty

Overview: 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 canít even admit to themselves. Amidst all of 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 best-selling romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House nursing a bad back, a broken heart, and an exquisitely painful paper cut. Sheís immediately intrigued by her fellow guests. Most of them donít look to be in need of a health resort at all. But the person that intrigues her most is the strange and charismatic owner/director of Tranquillum House. Could this person really have the answers Frances didnít even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer Ė or should she run while she still can?

Itís not long before every guest at Tranquillum House is asking exactly the same question.

Leslie Swichkow (06/10/19): This is the first Moriarty book I have read and it definitely will not be the last. She tells the story of nine strangers who meet at a Wellness Retreat, of sorts. The characters are nicely developed, and it is interesting to see them interact with each other and grow in some unlikely ways. There is a point, about 3/4 of the way through, that the book became a bit slow, but overall, it was a great read. There is some humor, a bit of intrigue, and definitely many opportunities to recognize characteristics of yourself (or your friends) in some of these "strangers."
Rating: ****

Debbie Weiss (12/11/18): This was a thoroughly enjoyable read! Nine people head to Tranquillum House, a spa with an excellent reputation. What starts out as an innocent visit to a facility for self-improvment turns out to be so much more than expected - but in unexpected ways. Liane Moriarty's writing is simple and fun. All of the individuals in the book are well-rounded and interesting; each with a story to tell. Their unique experience bonds them together and none will leave quite the same people as they were when they entered. This book is a winner!
