If there’s such a thing as the perfect whodunit, this is it. I absolutely loved this one. It’s got everything: suspense to the very end, deliciously complex characters with mysterious motives, a lavish and exotic setting, and terrific…

A dark mystery set on a island reserved for a lavish wedding. Behind every character is a hidden motive and behind every motive is the need to survive!

A dark and foreboding mystery that will keep you constantly guessing. Each guest has their motives, secrets, and surprises.

An easy read that holds your interest. Interesting structure. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Mystery full of shocking twists. You will not see it coming. I love how the chapters are titled by and written from the perspectives of the guests.

This book was a pleasant surprise! Enjoyed the depth of each character. Plot twists and a page-turner!

This book was so atmospheric and well-written, and those twists totally got me. It's Jules' and Will's wedding, and they're having it on a remote Irish island. The guest list is long, and with so many people mingling from different parts…

This book was so atmospheric and well-written, and those twists totally got me. My favourite part of this book is the atmosphere. It was just so perfectly written to transport me into this world and onto this island, which is another one…

An exciting mystery with some nice "say whaaaaat?" moments. Foley does a fabulous job of laying out the main characters and their backstories, bringing each of them to life. It's almost near the end of the book before the actual victim is…

3/5, pretty average thriller. Foley paints a mysterious setting, but the plot is predictable and characters are a bit cliché. It's difficult to grow attached to any of them, and the plot twists don't make 100% sense and seemed to be…

The Guest List was definitely more mystery than thriller, with a story that unfolded slowly rather than made me jump out of my seat. If you like slow burn mysteries with a decent amount of character development and a remote, creepy…

The Guest List is a delectable blend of Agatha Christie inspiration and modern day psychological suspense. This is a "locked room mystery" built for the readers of today: a story concerned with secrets among spouses, partners and…

I guessed 1 of the twists in this book about 1/2 way through, and almost stopped....but am so glad I didn't! Kept me guessing and saying "how did she tie this all together?!" until the final pages!

Predictable, flat. Characters are one-dimensional: cartoonish without depth. The author's forays into character's casual chats about sex left me a bit queasy. A blah of a book.

This is a thriller that I didn't know I would like as much as I did. The island itself lends to the atmospheric tone of the story. The author did a good job including the creepy storm at just the right time.

Predictable movie of the week, issue of the week type book.

Slow start but picked up later when the number of suspects increased with every chapter.

A quick read. Suspenseful, if a bit cheesy, writing style. It reminded me a bit of an older "Agatha Christie" type mystery.

For all the hype, I didn't like this book. Very contrived. A wedding but Not One Happy Person.
Feb 22, 2021peggydalberto rated this title 2 out of 5 stars
It's a shame trees were destroyed to print this book. I guess I have gotten to expect a better written story.

Another recent novel told from multiple perspectives - this time, 6 - with the names of each at the top of each relatively short chapter. Each of the perspectives is told in the first person, present tense, so there is no jarring…

The book held my attention, I was interested in how it would end. Although I figured out the ending about midway through, that is, who the murderer was and why. The victim was also pretty obvious to me. I read it to the finish to see…

It flipped back and forth a lot but it was informative and interesting. Lots of secrets revealed.
