  • Tammy Cohen - The Wedding Party

    All her life Lucy has dreamt of the perfect wedding. It took her 18 months to plan everything to detail so that her nuptials to Jason would be the most spectacular moment. The wedding party arrives on the beautiful Greek island of Kefalonia already a couple of days prior to enjoy themselves and to prepare for the big day. Yet, from the start, things do not run as smoothly as expected. Lucy’s sister Jess appears with a stranger in tow, her parents behave strangely and her wedding planner Nina is asking repeatedly for the pay of the last bill which Lucy simply couldn’t settle as she has been overspending and is totally broke. It is only her best friend Shelly who supports her unconditionally. But this is only the beginning, with the strange woman Vivian, a doomy omen seems to have arrived at their luxurious hotel threatening not only to destroy the best day of her life but her whole family. I have been a huge fan of Tammy Cohen for years and thus was looking forward to reading her latest novel. Again, she did not disappoint me but created a gripping plot which had me struggle to put the book down once I had started. Brilliantly crafted, suspense is high from the beginning as you know that something absolutely terrible is going to happen, yet, the big question is: what? Lucy just wants her wedding to be perfect, not necessarily for herself, but much more for her Instagram followers and colleagues. She seems to be doing everything right except for spending money she does not have and not telling her husband-to-be about it. Her sister, on the contrary, is more on the rebel side of life not caring too much about outer appearances and following her own ideals. That she might spoil her sister’s wedding by bringing a total stranger does not really occur to her, it is just her way of having a bit of fun. Their parents, too, seem to have fallen apart, even though the girls do not have a clue why this might be. Just for the sake of the wedding, they all try at least to play their assigned role for a couple of days longer. Even though it could be a carefree week under the sun, smaller and bigger secrets surface one after the other leading to an increasingly dense atmosphere among the party and opening up all doors for speculation about what might happen. From the police interviews interjected, you can only guess so much, but this is this theorising that makes reading the novel great fun. Wonderfully depicted characters who all have their flaws and shortcomings mixed with a lot of drama and suspense – a perfect summer read.

  • Oozes Suspense

    In The Wedding Party, Kefalonia has been chosen as the place for Lucy Collins's wedding to Jason, and the guests arrive a few days before the ceremony due to take place on 15 June. The story is told from the perspective of a number of different guests giving the tale some interesting dimensions. Upfront, the reader knows that someone will die but not who. The focus of the tale is on the events leading up to the unfortunate person's death. Tammy Cohen's writing really wows and this is not my first book by this author but my second. Her descriptions of the locale were impressive I was transported there, experiencing the ambience of the Greek island. The characters were difficult to like but played their parts well. Written with style and flair, the plot execution was tremendous and the pacing was comfortable. There were no disappointments and I was completely gripped from the outset, loving the twists. Brilliantly crafted, the suspense was level was set to high from the beginning as you know that something dreadful will happen, all the while wondering exactly what. The Wedding Party was everything I wanted from a tip-top, tense, drama style thriller, and I enjoyed reading how things played out in the finale. I will be looking out for more from this talented author. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Random House UK, Transworld Publishers, Black Swan via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • A story to keep you on your toes

    I really enjoyed reading this book because there were several characters and flashbacks. You have to guess who will be the victim and who will be the murderer.
