The retreat is a story about four women who attend a weekend wellness retreat. Each of these women has their own lives and their own secrets they don’t want to be uncovered. Everything seems to be going well until a shocking discovery is made by some of the guests!

The writing was excellent, the character development was on point (even though some characters were quite unlikeable, I think that was the point of the story), and the ending left me gasping! You can definitely expect some unpredictable twists and turns!

This book was such a fast-paced, action-packed, and suspenseful thriller! I highly recommend it.


Four women.

Four secrets.

A weekend that will change them forever...if they survive.

Katie Manning was a beloved child star until her mid-teens when her manager attacked and permanently scarred her face, effectively ending her career and sending her on a path of all-too-familiar post-Hollywood self-destruction.

Now twenty-seven, Katie wants a better answer to those clickbait "Where Are They Now?" articles that float around online. An answer she hopes to find when her brother's too-good-to-be-true fiancé invites her to a wellness retreat upstate. Together with Katie's two best friends--one struggling with crippling debt and family obligations, one running away from a failed job and relationship--Katie will try to find the inner peace promised at the tranquil retreat. But finding oneself just might drudge up more memories than Katie is prepared to deal with.

Each woman has come to the retreat for different reasons. Each has her secrets to hide. And at the end of this weekend, only one will be left standing.
