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!!!!

    Kept me guessing until the end.

    I liked this book, it was fun and had lots of surprises. I gave it a 4 star instead of a 5 star because I thought it was a slow start. I also did not love the narration. The narrator voice was so low that I had to turn it up. And I found Will's voice was too old and did not portray his character as I envisioned. All in all, it was a fun read entertaining.

    So I really wanted to love this book after seeing all the 5 Star reviews, but for me, it just didn't get that interesting or suspenseful until about 7 hours in. It was just ok, the ending was good which is why I'll go with 3 stars, could be a 3.5 if that were an option. Narration was ok, except Will's voice was much much older sounding than it should have been, and the general story telling narrator's voice was very quiet, had to turn up the volume every time he was on just to be able to understand him. Didn't love the narrators jumping around from present to past so often, seemed distracting to the story vs building suspense like it was intended to do.

    Really great book, started off a little slow but i understand it was preparing for what was to come which overall made it that much more surprising when you start connecting the dots! I will be basing my Halloween murder mystery party off of this book!

  • Chloe C.

    Absolute cliff hanger. Wow.

  • Lisa Anderson

    Great story. The narrator's are great. I listened to it in 2 days. It would make a great movie.

    Great listen! Cliff hanger
