The Guest List posted by Robyn

The Guest List by Lucy Foley begins with a vicious storm during a wedding on an isolated island near Ireland.  By the reception’s end, a murder victim is found.  This introductory scenario sets up a page turning thriller.  Five first person accounts tell of things that happened starting the day before the wedding, beginning with the arrival of the wedding party.  The bride is a successful magazine publisher, and is marrying the handsome famous TV celebrity groom.  They are the picture perfect couple, and no expenses have been spared for the posh island wedding – an elaborate red velvet wedding cake with pearl handled knife will be the striking centerpiece.  This group story is told by the bride, the best man, the maid of honor/sister of bride, a plus one, and the wedding planner.  Well developed characters in a sinister setting make for an Agatha Christie-like read which leaves the reader guessing until the very last page!
