NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“If three characters were good in Big Little Lies, nine are even better in Nine Perfect Strangers.” —Lisa Scottoline, The New York Times Book Review

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Little Lies

Could ten days at a health resort really change you forever? In Liane Moriarty’s latest page-turner, nine perfect strangers are about to find out...

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. 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. She’s immediately intrigued by her fellow guests. Most of them don’t 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 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?

It’s not long before every guest at Tranquillum House is asking exactly the same question.

Combining all of the hallmarks that have made her writing a go-to for anyone looking for wickedly smart, page-turning fiction that will make you laugh and gasp, Liane Moriarty’s Nine Perfect Strangers once again shows why she is a master of her craft.

  • Things get weird

    I really like this author but this was a strange one. Starts off developing each character, seems like there’s going to be some intriguing breakthrough, but things just get bizarre. Then once the weirdness is over, it just rushes through the end. Don’t want too give too much away so I won’t write more details. Just feel disappointed with this one though. Not one I’d honestly recommend.

    I’ve read and loved all of Liane Moriarty’s books. This one was truly bad. The more I read, the worse it got. Definitely not worth the time or money.

    Couldn’t finish. Ridiculous story, ridiculous twist. I actually did like some of the characters but couldn’t bring myself to find out what happens to them because the story was so bad.

    I loved this book so much! Laughed out loud several times. Being a health professional myself, I could appreciate the obsessive behaviors that some others in my profession sometimes manifest when working with others. I especially love Frances.
  • Disappointing

    Not what I expected. Nothing like her usual writing. I didn’t like it.
