**TW Mentions of suicide  

What a wild ride!  Olivia, Liv's, is an actress who had a bit of a breakdown and needs a break. Enter The House of Light, a spiritual center with yoga and meditation. When Olivia arrives and meets Ava she learns there's something strange about the place. Theres series suicides that are two common to be a coincidence.  Olivia leaves the House of Light, does research and starts a podcast to try and figure out if or how the House of Light is connected to the deaths.

I very much enjoyed this story.  I loved how the storyline went from present to podcast recordings, to conversations or interviews with people.  True crime podcasts are so popular that I think that really appeals to readers.  It's a cult-like story that is dark, mysterious, fast paced and engaging.  It was such a fun read. I really liked Liv's character too even if she was a bit unlikable in the storyline.
