APL Staff Review - The Writing Retreat

The Writing Retreat

By Julia Bartz

Five lucky women are selected to attend a month-long writing retreat at the home of, and led by, famous author Roza Vallo.  Upon arrival, they learn they each must complete a full novel in order to participate in the retreat. One novel will be selected for a publishing deal. Soon things start to take a strange turn of events and they realize more is a stake than just writing their novels. 

Hold on to your seats! This is a crazy book that'll have you saying, wait what? If dark, edgy, psychological thrillers are your thing this book is for you!  It's a little over the top at times but still, you'll want to know how it ends.
