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.

Not a great one. I kept reading thinking it would get better but it kinda just gets weirder, disappointing and confusing. I did enjoy the characters and found most to be humorous. I wouldn’t recommend this unless you really have nothing else better to read....

Very funny, with enough intrigue to keep you interested.

An enjoyable read, especially for how it pokes fun at the wellness industry and what we think will make us happy. Maybe too many characters, but while it doesn't expand your horizons, it does wrap up well.

The plot dragged for half of the novel, and then everything afterward felt unrealistic and rushed.

Weird, weird, weird. First half was OK but then it got very weird but I was determined to finish it to find out the conclusion. I would not recommend this book to others

I thought this book was preposterous and disappointing. Would not recommend it.
