The Last Resort

Marissa Stapley. Graydon House, $15.99 trade paper (368p) ISBN 978-1-525-82354-1
In the gripping latest from Stapley (Things to Do When It’s Raining), celebrity marriage counselor Miles Markell and his wife, Grace, run the Harmony Resort, located on an island off Mexico’s Mayan Riviera, where unhappily married couples can enroll in a two-week course designed to rebuild troubled relationships. District attorney Ben Reid and his social worker wife, Joanna, come hoping to reestablish intimacy in their two-year-old marriage. Also present are mining industry executive Colin Williams and his wife, Shell, who longs to reconnect with her workaholic husband. Nothing is as it appears. Underneath the surface, everyone is hiding secrets that could put them all in peril, more so than the category 4 hurricane barreling toward the island. A teasing prologue reveals that Miles goes missing after the hurricane strikes. The question of his fate will keep readers guessing to the end. Stapley shows a real knack for suspense. Agent: Samantha Haywood, Transatlantic Literary. (June)
