Summary

You come to the retreat to be healed. You don’t expect to die. 

Two years ago, Fran’s sister, Jenna, disappeared on a wellness retreat in the Mediterranean that went terribly wrong.

Tom Wade, the now infamous man behind Soul Shrink Retreats, has just been released from prison after serving his sentence for the deaths of two people. But he has never let on what happened to the third victim: Jenna.

Determined to find out the truth, Fran books herself onto his upcoming retreat - the first since his release - and finds herself face to face with the man who might hold the key to her sister’s disappearance. The only question is, will she escape the retreat alive? Or does someone out there want Jenna’s secrets to stay hidden?

The master of suspense is back. Prepare yourself for the latest heart-in-mouth roller-coaster ride from the international best-selling author.

Critic reviews

"An absolute belter of a novel." (Elizabeth Haynes)

"A sensational novel!" (Gillian Mcallister)

"Another twisty-turny and unputdownable read from the queen of psychological thrillers. Her Last Holiday is a chillingly plausible tale of why you should never, ever go on a wellness retreat." (Susi Holliday)

Another great book by CL Taylor

I devour books and I seem to have read a lot of psychological thrillers lately which all share a similar theme; Charming but ultimately abusive husband gaslighting wife type thing.
It was great to read something different and unexpected.

interesting and engaging

Good story with believable characters. plot line was good and not quite predictable. I liked the (near) ending (not the final bit) which was generally happy, but with a bit of a twist (final bit) which I did think was superfluous and so ignored. some of the touchy feely stuff got a bit sickening at the end

Get better

The story seemed disjointed at first.
The main character is a bit bizarre but interesting. Once it gets going makes more sense and is all tied up nicely. The retreat is a bit cult like…

An Easy Listener.

I have only listened to one other audible by this author,"The Escape'. Personally, I preferred the storyline in that one.But this one was on the whole good .Lots of twists and turns that keep you guessing to the very end. And quite a few surprises.Definitely worth choosing .The Narrator was very good.

Unbelievable

wooden empty characters, it was a soul less story. I couldn't warm to any of them. The story was not believable. The narrators voice was fast, clipped and breathless, even on normal speed. I really wish I had not bothered.

Good aspects!

A couple of things which disappointed me, people from Gozo are called Gozitans not Gozonians!! Also the accent given to a local did not sound Maltese or even Gozitan. Otherwise good story although ending seemed rushed!

Confusing array of characters

So many characters..some with aliases, which added to the confusion. Who was who? it was hard to keep up. That spoilt
the story which had much promise in parts.....

Dull! Don't bother

I gave up on this with 5 hours of audio time left. A really dull and painfully slow story with a narrator who couldn't have sounded less bored if she'd tried
