Australian writer Liane Moriarty's eighth novel Nine Perfect Strangers has just hit the shelves, and already the film rights have been snapped up by Nicole Kidman, who'll produce and star in the adaptation.

One of her previous novels, Big Little Lies, was turned into a hit TV series by Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon and a second season of the show has just been filmed with Meryl Streep joining the cast.

Liane Moriaty's books have sold 14 million copies worldwide, been translated into more than 40 languages and three of her titles have reached number one on The New York Times bestseller list.

Nine Perfect Strangers is set in a remote health resort where a group of stressed out city dwellers are trying to reinvigorate their lives, watched over by an evangelical resort director.
