Description

Fran’s sister Jenna disappeared two years ago on a wellness retreat in Gozo that went terribly wrong. Unlikely scenarios and dangerous situations might have scared off some, but Fran is determined to learn the truth at any cost. The same night, Fran’s sister Jenna went missing, her death ruled a suicide, and now Geraldine wants answers. The sibling rivalry forced onto the sisters by an overbearing mother, and that overwhelming feeling that the other sibling is the favoured child, while you are considered the family disappointment, must have built such thick walls between Fran and Jenna, it was no wonder they weren’t the best at communication.

She meets the couple Kate and Tom who ran the retreat in Gaza along with three others who were also there. Tom Wade and his wife Kate used to run wellness retreats under the name SoulShrink, for people unhappy with some aspect of their lives. A few years ago, Jenna took a wellness retreat on the Maltese island of Gozo and committed suicide under mysterious circumstances. Jenna was bored by her job, her boyfriend had cheated on her, and Fran had inadvertantly pulled the rug out from under her feet, when she decided to go on a retreat to try and get her equilibrium back. On paper it doesn't sound like a lot is going on but under the surface you do get a fair amount of interesting narration from Fran, Kate, and Jenna.She disappeared and the local authorities judged that she had committed suicide jumping from a cliff. We also discover that some characters appear in both time lines, leaving me wondering, again, what secrets people were hiding. I’ve been a fan of CL Taylor from her first thriller but think this one is one of the best – brilliantly flawed characters – almost no one can be trusted. Two years ago, Fran's sister, Jenna, disappeared on a wellness retreat in Gozo that went terribly wrong.

They might have found a way to cover up your sister's murder but they're not going to intimidate me into letting this drop. I liked the other book I read by Taylor as well, and am planning on picking up a couple other books by this author. Generally I don't mind suspending belief in the cause of a good story, but there was just too much in this novel that beggared belief. Well CL Taylor has done it again, another addictive and twisty thriller than kept me guessing right until the very end. Fran, an ICT teacher watches proceedings carefully as her younger sister Jenna disappeared from the Gozo retreat.Tom has been tight lipped about Jenna, but Fran wants the truth, and is soon attending Tom’s next retreat. Overall, I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to those who like mysteries and domestic suspense. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook).

And I was worried when I struggled to make it through the first half due to the slow, boring pace that I had made the wrong choice. 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. Another twisty, chilling and unpredictable thriller, I inhaled Her Last Holiday, reading late into the night because I couldn’t put it down. An average read overall, but there was just nothing unique enough to make it stand out from every other domestic noir.Fran is a middle-aged single schoolteacher who is bullied by her domineering mother Geraldine into signing up for the first retreat led by controversial life coach Tom Wade since his release from prison after two participants died after a cleansing ritual on the Mediterranean island of Gozo, two years earlier.
