Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty





I was so excited when I saw that Liane Moriarty had a new book out. I have read all her other books and I can say I have not met a Liane Moriarty book that I did not like! Nine Perfect Strangers is no exception. I read this with my group of Traveling Sisters and it was a great book to do as a group read. This book was a long one so we did two check in points on the way and then a final thoughts. There was so much to talk about! Please pop over and see what Brenda and Norma at Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee have to say about our group read!

Nine strangers, hence the title, check into a wellness retreat with a reputation for it's life changing results. Tranquillum  House just sounds relaxing doesn't it? Or is it? As you can imagine nine strangers spending ten days together  has quite a mixture of personalities going on. Every person has a reason that they have sought out this specific retreat.

I must admit I was a bit concerned when I saw there was going to be so many characters involved in the story. Normally this would have me grabbing a piece of paper and a pen to jot down notes because I can never keep track of that many different people. The thing is Moriarty somehow developed each character so profoundly that I did not need to worry! It is so easy to keep track of everyone and their stories. Each person is so well developed that you feel like you know them. I personally loved Frances and felt like I could relate to her on so many levels. She was funny as hell! She was also a very well known author, so I enjoyed seeing things through the eyes of an author, such as her take on bad reviews. She literally had me laughing out loud.

Highly entertaining book, that touched on some very serious and sensitive subjects. Moriarty pulled it off in her normal fashion and had me flipping through the pages! I can't wait to see what she comes out with next. Thanks so much to my Traveling Sisters for this fantastic group read!
