“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.


  • Good but not my fav of hers

    By HeatherOKC
    This book will stay with me because the storyline was unique. Her writing is always good. I didn’t sink into it like her others but I won’t forget the story anytime soon.
  • Nine Perfect Strangers

    By Brunetta4u
    What. A. Trip. (You'll understand what I mean if you are smart enough to pick up this book) Couldn't put it town. So tantalizingly woven, so heartbreakingly real, these stories of strangers who become bound together for life. LM exposes the human condition with the skill of sushi chef laying out perfectly filleted vegetables (oh, you know what I mean!)
  • Disappointed

    By Reader of all
    I love this author but this is not her best work. Really hard to get through it - kept hoping it would get better but it did not.

  • Never gots going

    By Jmhalvo
    There should be SOME narrative at the half-way point. I think I’ll quit....
  • I hate this book

    By fuji1234567
    Most ridiculous story
  • Awful!

    By DSkolnick
    I am a big fan of hers. I couldn’t wait for this book. It was awful. Story and characters are flat. I got 40% through the book and gave up.
  • Odd

    By Drcbartlett
    It was off. I’ve enjoyed her books in the past, but this was out there. I had a really hard time getting into it, and then found it weird and unbelievable. Disappointing.
  • Don’t waste money

    By Cmtulsa
    Read this book when it goes to the bargain book section, I was so disappointed I spent the money on the audiobook because usually her books are a given for being excellent, not so for 9 Perfect Strangers
  • Boring

    By Arabrab3039
    One of the worst books I have ever read. Boring! Sorry that I wasted my money. Bevans
