“I loved this book. It gave me the same waves of happiness I get from curling up with a classic Christie...The alternating points of view keep you guessing, and guessing wrong.” — Alex Michaelides, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient
"Evok[es] the great Agatha Christie classics…Pay close attention to seemingly throwaway details about the characters’ pasts. They are all clues.” -- New York Times Book Review
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?
In the captivating thriller "The Guest List" by Lucy Foley, a seemingly idyllic wedding weekend on a remote Irish island takes a sinister turn when a guest turns up dead. As the investigation unfolds, it becomes clear that each attendee harbors secrets and motives that could have led to murder.
The story unfolds from the perspectives of multiple characters, each with their own unique take on the events that transpire. As the body count rises, the guests become increasingly suspicious of one another, and the line between friend and foe blurs.
Foley masterfully weaves a web of intrigue and suspense, keeping readers on the edge of their seats as they try to unravel the mystery. The remote island setting adds an eerie atmosphere to the story, isolating the characters and heightening the sense of danger.
With its complex characters, intricate plot, and stunning setting, "The Guest List" is a gripping read that will appeal to fans of Agatha Christie and Ruth Ware. It's a perfect choice for a weekend escape or a cozy night in with a good book.
