LoM Reads: "The Guest List" by Lucy Foley
Updated: Jan 11
Starting today, I'm starting a new feature on this newborn website and it will be called "LoM Reads". Where I will announce a book that I will be reading and then subsequently give a review of said book after completion.
The first book on my radar is, "The Guest List" by Lucy Foley, which seems to have a very Agatha Christie-esque type of atmosphere that I crave. This book was released earlier this year in February 2020 and is on Barnes & Noble's Top 100 bestseller book list, also from the reviews looks like its a real page-turner. Sign me up!
A wedding celebration turns dark and deadly in this deliciously wicked and atmospheric thriller reminiscent of Agatha Christie from the New York Times bestselling author of The Hunting Party. 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?
