Summary:

A REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK

“I loved this book. It gave me the same waves of happiness I get from curling up with a classic Christie...The alternating points of view keep you guessing, and guessing wrong.” — Alex Michaelides, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient

'Evok[es] the great Agatha Christie classics…Pay close attention to seemingly throwaway details about the characters’ pasts. They are all clues.” -- New York Times Book Review

A wedding celebration turns dark and deadly in this deliciously wicked and atmospheric thriller reminiscent of Agatha Christie from the New York Times bestselling author of The Hunting Party.

The bride – The plus one – The best man – The wedding planner  – The bridesmaid – The body

On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.

But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.

And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?

    Very entertaining! Similar but equally impressive as her other book "The hunting party".

    About: A celebrity wedding on a remote island in Ireland. Everybody wants to be there. Or do they? Things start out normally. Everybody is preparing for the wedding. Everybody is happy and getting along. Everything is perfect. Until the secrets start coming to the surface. Plot: This book was really intense! It was told from multiple points of view in the past and present times. I felt like it kind of read like Big Little Lies did. I found out that it's also a Reece Witherspoon Book Club read! It was definitely full of a lot of unexpected surprises. My advice is to pay attention to the small backstories that don't seem to really make sense. Characters: I really related to Olivia the most. Hannah too. They were very introverted people trying to fit in with an extroverted group of people. Will seems to be a decent groom. He has a bit of a playboy image but appears to be harmless. His best man, Johnno seems to be going through something that he's constantly self-medicating to forget. The bride, Jules, is overly selfish and beyond judgmental. She also seemed to have an anger problem. Narration: This book was narrated by a cast of six people. One for every point of view it seems. I think it was a brilliant idea. It brought the characters even more to life and made their personalities more distinct and alive. They all did a wonderful job! Suggestions: Without giving too much away, I was very disappointed with the ending. There were a lot of ends that should have been tied a little better. Things that should have been explained. Recommend: Yes!!!!

    Overall, a great listen! It took a while to get to the gist of the thing. But once things started to unravel, I couldn't wait to find out what in the blue flamingoes was going on!

    Not enough character building and way too much swearing.... would have been much better with it.

    The Guest List Author: Lucy Foley The guest list is a very mysterious thriller novel.It starts with a wedding taking place in an isolated island.The groom is a celebrity actor and the bride is the ambitious woman working as CEO of digital magazine. They both invited all the family members,friends,colleagues and many more from past and present.The party was a lavish grand celebration with food and alcohol.All the celebration things were planned well but all planned things do not go as expected.The bride,groom and their friends started playing the school days games but to their shock suddenly light went off and there was a scream of a woman heard by everyone.As soon the light came one woman was found in blood and died at the spot.I loved listening to the audio and was pleased to hear such thriller suspense story. This one is a story about solving a murder case at the party with too many people present having their own secrets and gossips. Happy reading!

    Great book but there were some parts I felt they rehashed a bit too much.

  • Amanda B.

    I enjoyed listening. Each narator developed their character well. The story kept me engaged and the ending was a delightful surprise.
