From the no. 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Husband's Secret and Big Little Lies. The retreat at health-and-wellness resort Tranquillum House promises total transformation. Nine stressed city dwellers are keen to drop their literal and mental baggage, and absorb the meditative ambience while enjoying their hot stone massages. Watching over them is the resort's director, a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired bodies and minds. These nine perfect strangers have no idea what is about to hit them... With her wit, compassion and uncanny understanding of human behaviour, Liane Moriarty explores the depth of connection that can be formed when people are thrown together in... unconventional circumstances.

I read the comments and didn't have high expectations of this book. I absolutely loved it. She did a great job of developing different characters. I thought the book was pretty humorous at times. This book is different from the way she has written before, but is still an enjoyable, worthwhile read. Several people in my book club also enjoyed it.

Read about 1/4 of the book then took a nap as it was boring. Did not finish it.

Usually like her books. Just could not get in to it at all. Could not even finish, which is rare for me.

Started off asa great read, I was so engrossed, then it took a turn and was all downhill from there. Very disappointing.

Terrible book. Worst of her books. Avoid.

The book started off good then took a weird turn. It was too unrealistic, it dragged on way too long, and you didn't know what was real! I have read several of her books and loved them all. This doesn't even feel like it's from the same author.

Classic Moriarty!!

Nine Perfect Strangers quickly bond during a 10 day wellness retreat at the remote and highly rated Tranquillum House. Each person has a different reason for needing some extra TLC and a bit of healing. The exotic, beautiful owner and her loyal staff know just how to reach each and every guest to ensure their stay is truly life changing….or do they? This retreat will definitely produce some changes, but are they the ones these clients have been hoping for?

The more you learn about Frances, Tony, Jessica, Ben, Carmel, Lars, Heather, Zoe and Napoleon, the more you will fall in love with each and every one of them. There is sadness, depression, anxiety, animosity, insecurity and love….always love.

Pros: A particularly heart wrenching story line was handled beautifully. Mixed with humor and a bit of romance...this book has it all.

Cons: Some highly unlikely scenarios occur...so what...it’s fiction...just sit back and enjoy!

I have loved most of Moriarty’s books and I feel she is back on track with this one.

I love Liane Moriarty's books but this one was definitely not her best. It still entertained me thought.

This book had great potential in the beginning. It dragged in the middle, then became bizarre and had too much of a fairy tale ending “.....and everybody lived happily ever after”.

Not a book I would recommend.

I kept hoping I would like this book. But now I can't wait to get it back to the library. Bummed I wasted my time on it. I've enjoyed her other books, but this one is a dud.
