Event Details

Registration required visit: 85 Queen: Marissa Stapley

In conversation with Lyndsey Butcher, Executive Director SHORE Centre.

We all have thirteen secrets. Five stay buried forever. The rest will be revealed…

To the guests at The Harmony Resort, Doctors Miles and Grace Markell appear to be a perfect celebrity power couple. They run a couples’ therapy retreat in a luxurious resort in the Mayan Riviera where they help spouses deal with their marriage struggles.

Johanna and Ben’s relationship looks great on the surface, but in reality, they don’t know each other at all. Shell and Colin fight constantly but what has really torn them apart is too devastating to talk about. When both couples begin Harmony’s intensive therapy program, it becomes clear that Harmony is not all that it seems—especially Miles and Grace. What are they hiding, and what price will these couples pay for finding out their secrets?

A gripping exploration of relationships, loyalty, secrets, and trust, The Last Resort is a propulsive read about the truths we hide, even from ourselves, and how far we’ll go to protect those we love.
