Three Chicago women have been found strangled, embalmed, and posed as if still alive. Doubting the findings of the local PD’s profiler, the FBI calls on forensic psychologist Zoe Bentley to investigate. Zoe quickly gets off on the wrong foot with her new partner, Special Agent Tatum Gray. Zoe’s a hunter, intense and focused; Tatum’s a smug maverick with little respect for the rules. Together, they must descend into a serial killer’s psyche and untangle his twisted fantasies, or more women will die.

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies, comes her newest audiobook, Nine Perfect Strangers: 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. Amid all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these 10 days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next 10 days are going to be.

Perhaps she accidentally published the draft?

This book was a supreme letdown and I am pretty positive we read the draft! The potential was there but the storyline was disjointed and random thoughts were thrown in at various points and seemed like their primary function was just to lengthen pages. It seemed like the author couldn’t quite figure out what type of book she was writing or where she wanted to go with the character development and plot, and finally just threw something together. Like “oooh this sounds interesting maybe I should write that! And then ooh this too, let’s put that here! And oh I just remembered I wanted to write that let’s add it all the way at the end!” I started and stopped this book four times before I finally made it all through because of how poorly connected all the details were. Every time I thought “wow this is about to get good” some ridiculous thought was entered and the climax fell flat.

As for the narrator I didn’t think it was as horrible as the others said and to test that idea I also read the book in paper. The story sucks and the narrator tried to save it. The only irritating thing about the narration to me was that she ended each sentence in an up-note, like the sentence was a question rather than a statement. I agree the reading could have been sped up because doing so would have made the book sound more interesting but again if you are really paying attention to the development of the story rather than a feeling of excitement from rapidly read details, then you’ll be able to hear through the speed and realize that the book simply missed its mark.
