  • A very unique mystery, highly enjoyable!

    I read The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley and really enjoyed it. And after reading The Guest List, which I enjoyed, I feel like I could almost use most of my review from The Hunting Party to describe The Guest List. Not that it’s a bad thing that the books are so similar, just an observation. Both The Guest List and The Hunting Party remind me a lot of the Christopher Pike books I read as a teen, but it’s as if those books have grown up. There are a lot more adult relations and problems, but still all the twists and draw dropping reveals that I’ve come to expect from Pike, and now Foley. In The Hunting Party the only likeable characters were the two people who ran the lodge. In The Guest List there were more likeable characters and characters that I felt sorry for in regards to circumstances that others, as well as themselves, had brought upon themselves. There are still a bunch of rich, narcissistic, and psychopathic people in this book, and I am not ashamed to admit I was happy to see some of them get their comeuppance. In The Guest List, the story is told between some of the guests and the wedding planner and switches time periods, but it’s never hard to follow. The way Foley ties everything up is done masterfully, even if one must suspend their belief in order for it to be believed. But that’s what is great about reading fiction, you get to just enjoy the story. I did see some of the things coming since Foley left some big clues if you’re paying a bit of attention. But when it came to two of the female guests, I enjoyed the twists for them. And while not everyone got to kill off the jerk (and we actually don’t find out who is murdered until late in the book), they way it happened and who is charged for the crime was the perfect ending. I’m already looking forward to Lucy Foley’s next book, and highly recommend you read The Hunting Party and The Guest List.

  • A mystery with a psychological twist

    I really enjoyed this story. The author planned this story so events were opened up a little at a time. The setting on the stormy, windy islandoff the coast of Ireland and a splashy wedding left you wondering that something was going to happen. And, it did. It was easy to follow as each main charater had their own chapter. So going back and forth in time was not as complicated as some current reads. I loved it

  • A great whodunnit

    The Guest List is a whodunnit that will have you guessing right to the end of the book. I had a hard time putting it down. The setting is a weekend wedding off the coast of Ireland on an isolated island. The bride is a well-known successful magazine publisher. The groom is a handsome TV star. They make such an attractive couple - one to be envied. The guests are made up of family and friends, all who have a remarkable history with the bride or groom. Many are carrying secrets. Traumatic events from the characters’ past are slowly disclosed. There is an endless supply of alcohol and drugs. Then someone on the island is found dead. The book is told from two alternating time periods: “then” and “now”, which creates a suspenseful framework that works well. The location of the wedding has a “haunted mansion” type of vibe, complete with a peat bog that has been known to swallow anything that ventures near it. I listened to the audiobook version of this story and thoroughly enjoyed the ensemble cast of actors ( Jot Davies, Chloe Massey, Olivia Dowd, Aoife McMahon, Sarah Ovens & Rich Keeble) who bring a voice to these well-developed characters. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy a great mystery read. I look forward to reading more from the author.
