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 audiobook, 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 audiobooks a go-to for any listener looking for wickedly smart, unpausable 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.

Praise for Nine Perfect Strangers:

'A deeply satisfying thriller. Moriarty delivers yet another surefire winner.' — Publishers Weekly

'The interwoven stories of a group of guests at a health resort in Southeast Australia are delightfully narrated by Melbourne performer Caroline Lee, who never falters in her characterizations of this varied cast of characters and who works in concert with the author to imbue them with vivid personalities and intriguing interactions.' — SoundCommentary

A beautifully narrated book that Moriarty has so elegantly written by weaving the lives of nine strangers in a bizarre week of strange events and beyond. The writer keeps you wanting more, can’t wait to read other if her works.

I love Liane! She is one of my favorite authors for 4 years now. I’ve now read all her books and this was definitely my least favorite. Never felt pulled in like her other books. It took me a long while to finish it because I really got board. That being said, she is a great author and I recommend any of her other books. I LOVE the narrator! She narrates a few others of Liane’s books. :)

I love all of Liane’s other books but this one is disappointing. The narrator has a distracting tone that makes it difficult to really get into the story but even when I tried to get past that I realized the story isn’t that great either. I’m having a hard time finishing it :(

Too slow and no suspense. A lot of character development and too little plot. Disappointed in this book.

I was disappointed. I’ve read all Liane\'s books and didn’t like this book. Too far out there and not at all practical.

Not gonna lie the narration aggravated me for the first 3 hours then I was absolutely hooked. I didn’t ready up on this book so I was continuously thrown on different directions as I grew to know each character. Gave me the feels with a rainbow of emotions. Absolutely wonderful to the very end so glad for this random purchase ❤️

Some foreshadowing but still had no idea what was coming for the ever elusive *twist*. Was genuinely surprised and excited to hear what happened next. A few cliches but overall enjoyed the story. Narrator was great except the voice for Marsha was a little annoying at times and seemed inaccurate.

It was good, but not as good as Big Little Lies. Lots of twists
