The Guest List by Lucy Foley
‘The Guest List’ is a 373 page, fast and furious mystery-thriller! The story is set at the wedding of golden couple, Julia and Will, on an isolated island off the coast of Ireland. A storm is brewing, emotions are running high and tightly held secrets threaten to bubble over during the course of the weekend.
Then, as the celebrations get into full swing and the full force of the storm reaches the island, someone is murdered and the motives are about as long as the guest list for this high-end event.
‘The Guest List‘ is a succinctly written yet multi-layered story with a thrilling plot and lots of surprising twists along the way.
There are several main characters and each has their own compelling story to tell. The story unfolds through each of their perspectives, but even with so many characters, it is easy to follow and keep up with the snappy pace of this thriller.
Whilst it lacks the depth of other popular thrillers such as ‘Gone Girl‘ and ‘The Girl on the Train‘, it is a quick, engrossing and exciting read, making it a great book to pick up on your summer holiday.
Cheers to that!
