One retreat. Three victims. No escape.
You come to Soul Shrink to be healed. You don’t expect to die. Two years ago, Fran’s sister Jenna disappeared on a wellness retreat in Gozo 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?
C.L. Taylor is a Sunday Times bestselling author whose psychological thrillers have sold over a million copies in the UK alone, been translated into over twenty languages, and optioned for film. Her previous two novels, The Fear and Strangers, were also huge hits with our readers back in 2018 and 2020.
Now the master of suspense is back with her latest heart-in-mouth page-turner, Her Last Holiday. What a read this was! It’s clever, chilling, utterly addictive and had me hooked from beginning to end – Taylor’s fans are in for a treat.
The novel follows three brilliant female leads: There’s Fran, a teacher who is haunted by her sister’s death and won’t move on until she finds answers. Then there’s Kate, Tom’s resourceful wife, who really is the brains behind the entire Soul Shrink operation. And Jenna, who, dealing with her own personal issues, attended Tom and Kate’s retreat in the hopes of being healed… yet things didn’t exactly go to plan.
In true Taylor style, Her Last Holiday is a polished, fast-paced and tightly plotted read that’s jam-packed with twists and turns you won’t see coming. Just when you think you’ve figured it out, she throws another curveball your way. Tense, gripping and brilliantly crafted, this standout psychological thriller reminds us once again why Taylor sits atop this genre. I’m off to hit up her backlist while I eagerly wait for her next novel.
