The Guest List by Lucy Foley - Blog Tour Review

Another murder. Another mystery. 

Guests are called to a remote island off the Irish coast to celebrate the wedding of the year – the marriage of Jules and Will. Everything has been meticulously planned, the scene is set, old friends are back together.

It should be the perfect day. 

Until the discovery of a body signals the perfect murder. 

A groom with a secret.
A bridesmaid with a grudge.
A plus one with motive.
A best man with a past.

It could be any, it could be all . . . But one guest won’t make it out alive. 

My Review

So it is only February and I think I have just read my book of the year. From start to finish I absolutely loved it! The Guest List is one of them books that leaves a lasting impression. Well written, gripping plot and packed full of mystery.

I can't say too much about the plot without spoilers but this book is right up my street. It's crammed with secrets, lies and characters who are not entirely likeable but are great to read about.

I haven't read The Hunting Party yet (I know where have I been!) but after reading The Guest List, I really need to push it up my reading list. Lucy Foley is an outstanding author and her style of writing made this a real page turner. I read it in two sittings (children need feeding apparently) and was so engrossed I couldn't stop until I reached the end.

The setting for the story is perfect. An isolated island with a storm (in more ways than one) on it's way. All the guests are gathered together and secrets that many of them are holding on to.

The Guest List is a outstanding book and it's one that I will be recommending to everyone I know!
