The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! C.L. Taylor’s sensational suspense thriller, Her Last Holidayis now available in the US & Canada (HarperCollins), and we are so excited for readers to get their hands on it.

Her Last Holiday is the latest offering from six times Sunday Times bestselling author, C.L. Taylor. Her previous thriller Strangers shot right into the Sunday Times bestseller list during a nationwide lockdown, also reaching #3 on the Amazon charts and #1 on the Apple charts. Before that, her thriller Sleep was also a Sunday Times bestseller and a Richard & Judy Book Club pick. Her books have sold a total of over 1.2 million copies, translated into over twenty languages, optioned for television, and have hit No. 1 spots on Amazon Kindle, Audible, Kobo, iBooks and Google Play. Recently, C.L. Taylor was longlisted for the CWA Dagger in the Library, for a body of work by an established crime writer that has long been popular with borrowers from libraries.

In the run up to publication, this brilliant new thriller about a woman who books herself onto a wellness retreat in order to solve the mystery of her missing sister has received some wonderful press attention, from this exciting giveaway competition run by the Sun, to the Financial Times’ roundup of ‘the best new crime fiction‘. Her Last Holiday has also recently reviewed in a number of magazines including New magazine, Big Issue North, and it was also included in Her magazine’s list of ‘85 brilliant books that we can’t wait to curl up with in 2021‘.

The striking cover for this new novel was exclusively revealed by Good Housekeeping in this tantalising feature, and it was celebrated on social media with these bold assets:

Early readers have been raving about the book, and gave these glowing endorsements:

Now, without further ado, we invite you to step inside the world of Soul Shrink…


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?

A huge congratulations to C.L. Taylor on this very special day. We are so thrilled for you! US and Canadian readers can now order a copy here. And if you are based in the UK, you can pre-order a copy here, in time for the exciting UK publication on 29th April.
