The Guest List by Lucy Foley
Genre: Suspense, Mystery
BUG Rating: 4.5/5
Overall: WOW! I enjoyed Lucy Foley’s prior book The Hunting Party- but I LOVED the guest list!!! What an epic read! 🙌🏻 It has the same structure as the hunting party- alternative POVs as we switch chapters, and dual timeline …lead up to the wedding, and the day of the wedding.
The character development was fantastic and I loved ALL of the characters (even the ones we’re suppose to loathe 😂)
The build up of suspense was intense! We’re left constantly wondering who gets killed, why and by who 🕵🏻♀️ .. so many have motive 😳 I loved finding out about all the back stories as we try to uncover the mystery 🕵🏻♀️
My heart was racing with each page, and I loved all the twists, just SO MANY twists.
An addictive, domestic, suspensy, whodunnit that you won’t want to miss. And if you enjoyed the hunting party – this is WAYYY better!
The bride ‧ The plus one ‧ The best man ‧ The wedding planner ‧ The bridesmaid ‧ The body
On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.
But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.
And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?
