A REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“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?

Good but...

I finished this book in a day. It’s a page-turner to be sure. The style and different perspectives worked well. My only problem is the ending. Everything else was paced so perfectly until the ending which was rushed to the point of confusion. I kept scrolling over thinking there had to be more, but unfortunately there’s wasn’t. I do love endings that don’t tie everything up in a nice bow and this certainly fits that bill. However, after all the build up the ending felt flat and mostly unresolved.

Twists and turns

This book moves back and forth as it tells the story through the perspective of various characters over the course of 2 days. The story builds to an unlikely conclusion keeping the reader captivated as each character develops. An interesting writing style and good read!
