  • Didn't care for it

    Matthew and Charlie invite new book club member Rachel to the house for dinner one night. Just a quiet night at home with the two of them and their teenage son Titus, whom she met when she came upon him being bullied and she ran the guys off. Dinner ends with Matthew dead and Rachel gripping the bloody knife in her hand as she calls 999. I had a bit of push-pull of emotions over this book, not especially strong ones either way. At best, I liked it ok, something I am glad I read because the cover was intriguing but I will never want to read it again. At worst, I found it at times a bit boring, unnecessarily complex, and I felt like the last chapter was completely unneccessary. I know this sounds harsh and I apologize, but I am just trying to be honest. Overall, I would give it a 2-1/2 to a 3, so I will round it up to a 3. .

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Gripping read! Strongly recommend!

    This has been such a terrible enjoyable read. From the beginning I got the feeling that I was being transported into a Desperate Housewives-esque setting and the tension was amped up to the max. I don’t really understand how some people might have DNF’ed this since the structure that B. P. Walter undertook serviced for the whole novel to be a mystery until the end. Without to spoil anything B. P. Walter sets himself up as being one of the best authors who manages to tease its reader by giving them a piece of information and then straight away not giving it to them. 🙊

  • Pages turn themselves

    The Dinner Guest grabs you from page one and does not let it go. Matthew is dead but who stabbed him; it's one of the three at the dinner table. Rachel, Titus or Charles? I suspected all of them at one point, can't say I was right. Follow the twists and turns, a few red herrings and you have a great read where the pages just fly by. Add an ending that is just the icing on the cake and what more could you ask for. Add The Dinner Guest to the top of your TBR pile , you will be glad you did.

  • Will keep you guessing till the very last page!

    Four people walked into the dining room…but one would never leave…at least not alive… Told from multiple points of view with a deadly countdown, The Dinner Guest is a highly character driven mystery with the cast having so many secrets, you will be guessing the motive behind the murder up till the very last page! Dear reader, I thought for sure I had it all plotted out, but the author reminded me that revenge is a dish best served cold. I’ll not spoil the fun in solving the mystery in a review…you will just have to snag your own copy! Loved and highly recommend! **I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. **

  • A Luxurious Mystery

    THE DINNER GUEST by B.P. Walter was a fast-paced luxurious mystery. The identity of the players involved in the final whodunit are revealed right away, and the rest of the book slowly unravels their secrets. I loved that this book had multiple timelines - before the murder and after - and also really enjoyed the multiple perspectives. Like I mentioned before, this book was fast-paced and was constantly moving the reader, whether that was ahead or behind because there was A LOT of catching up to do! The characters were all extremely interesting, but, as a reader, I found them difficult to trust. There were several side plot points that I didn’t really enjoy, though I understand their intention was to add some unease to the story, but they feel a bit unnecessary upon reflection. The overall motive for the murder also fell a bit flat for me. I think there were many other ways it could have gone that would have been more believable. Overall, this was an extremely intriguing mystery with a lot of secrets, but it still fell a bit short in terms of the overall execution. Publication Date: April 01, 2021 *** special thanks to NetGalley and One More Chapter for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
