"For anyone who has ever suspected something sinister lurking behind the craze of new-age spirituality, Jessica Grose has crafted just the tale for you. With the delicious bite of satire and the page-turning satisfaction of a thriller, Soulmates is a deeply compelling, funny and sharply observed look at just how far we will go to achieve inner peace." Lena DunhamA clever, timely novel about a marriage, and infidelity, the meaning of true spirituality, perception and reality from the author of Sad Desk Salad, in which a scorned ex-wife tries to puzzle out the pieces of her husband s mysterious death at a yoga retreat and their life together.It s been two years since the divorce, and Dana has moved on. She s killing it at her law firm, she s never looked better, thanks to all those healthy meals she cooks, and she s thrown away Ethan s ratty old plaid recliner. She hardly thinks about her husband ex-husband anymore, or about how the man she d known since college ran away to the Southwest with a yoga instructor, spouting spiritual claptrap that Dana still can t comprehend. But when she sees Ethan s picture splashed across the front page of the New York Post "Nama-Slay: Yoga Couple Found Dead in New Mexico Cave" Dana discovers she hasn t fully let go of Ethan or the past. The article implies that it was a murder-suicide, and Ethan s to blame. How could the man she once loved so deeply be a killer? Restless to find answers that might help her finally to let go, Dana begins to dig into the mystery surrounding Ethan s death. Sifting through the clues of his life, Dana finds herself back in the last years of their marriage . . . and discovers that their relationship like Ethan s death wasn t what it appeared to be.A novel of marriage, meditation, and all the spaces in between, Soulmates is a page-turning mystery, a delicious satire of our feel-good spiritual culture, and a nuanced look at contemporary relationships by one of the sharpest writers working today."

#AbbainAugust When Dana married Ethan she believed it was 4EVER so there‘s a definite #HoleInYourSoul feeling when your Mr. Always walks away with the yoga instructor. And even more shocking, Ethan & his new love have been involved in a suicide pact?!? “Nama-Slay”?!?? Have not read this book, but it sounds entertaining...low Litsy ratings mean #BorrowNotBuy or #Wait4KindleDeal I hate when the publisher offers VERY different cover designs 🙄

On my walk I passed this window, which fit so perfectly with the title of the book I‘m reading, which is a twisty psychological suspense story about relationships and how well we can ever really know ourselves and others. What are you reading this weekend? #currentlyreading

I really liked this book. New age spirituality, or cult like? It's very much a thriller with a few twists and unexpected turns. I got really into it, and finished the book in 24 hours. The ending, wow. Very detailed book, well written.

Was a good, fun distraction on audio for our road trip to the AFL grand final - but the ending bothers me

Jessica Grose is the editor of the Lenny Letter. I was excited to read her somewhat satirical account of a yoga couple's death and the woman who searches to find out what happened to them. It was fast paced and fun but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it on merit. The twist at the end made me laugh.

Stuck in a train station and a book comes to the rescue! SOULMATES is a clever mystery that involves yoga and a woman trying to solver her ex-husband's death. Lena Dunham calls it "delicious and satisfying"

Meh. This one had a great potential and a fun plot but it didn't quite pull it off. I think what bothered me the most was the multiple 1st person narratives which all sounded the same (save for the dad) and Ethan's book about why he left Dana, which I just could not buy as anything other than a convenient plot device. I did appreciate the ending though, that was a nice touch.
