Welcome, friends! Barring any unforeseen circumstances, you should all have arrived by 4:00 p.m., and well meet on the Oceanside Terrace shortly after Opening Night. We understand you may be tired from a day of travel, but the inaugural exercise isnt optional (none of the scheduled activities are). Dont worryyoull have plenty of time to relax tomorrow. The Harmony Resort, La Hacienda, promises hope for struggling marriages. Run by celebrity couple Drs. Miles and Grace Markellauthors of the bestseller Revering Your Marriage and Renewing Your Lovethe last resort offers the chance for couples to repair their relationships in a luxurious setting on the gorgeous Mayan Riviera. Johanna and Ben have a marriage that looks great on the surface, but in reality, theyre deeply alienated from one another. Shell and Colin fight constantly; after all, Colin is a workaholic, and Shell always comes second to his job as an executive at a powerful mining company. As both couples begin Harmonys intensive therapy program, it becomes clear that Harmony is not all it seemsand neither are Miles and Grace themselves. What are they hiding, and what price will these couples pay for finding out? As a powerful hurricane descends on the coast, trapping both the hosts and the guests on the resort, secrets are revealed, loyalties are tested and not one single personor their marriagewill remain unchanged by what follows.

Don't let the serene, bright, sunny cover fool you! This story is tumultuous and dark, just like the storm clouds brewing in the distance. The writing gave me a creepy, unsettling vibe and the constant feeling of an ax about to drop. A totally engrossing, compulsive page turner by the talented Canadian author. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #netgalley #goodreads #seasonalreadingchallenge #damselindistress

#BFC week #4 went well. I surpassed my step goal by a 1, 878 and I finished 2 books. I've also haf some success with practicing mindfulness. I'm working on incorporating a full body scan at least once or twice a day to try and work on recognizing the tense spots. Wishing everyone a fun and positive week 5. #BFCr2 #feelingcontent #bookfitnesschallenge #everylittlebithelps

Week 2 check in another goal is to get a journal and start yoga!
Step goal met except the 2 days of major earthquakes I did make up earlier in week so they balance out. My reading goal is okay I need to step up my audio I am behind in that goal. I stopped worry about my weight and going with how I feel. I hope everyone is doing well!!

What a lovely evening listening to Canadian author Marissa Stapley talk about her latest book, The Last Resort. I have to say, I love meeting authors (and meeting up with fellow book bloggers like my friend Margaret from Just One More Chapter.

4 ⭐️- Set in the beautiful Mayan riviera, the book focuses on a group of couples who attend a marriage boot camp retreat who get more than they bargained for. Well-paced, creepy bad guy and loaded with deceit and secrets, this is a great summer pick. .

Appropriately paced with an interesting multiple POV perspective. There‘s enough intrigue to keep the reader vested and the premise and setting were also interesting. She employs some interesting tactics to move the plot—TMZ news releases, a dialogue between "him" and "her" and alternating between past and present. With themes of loss, love and an exploration into relationships and what it takes to make them work, Stapley has come into her own.
