The Guest List by Lucy Foley is exactly the type of mystery that I enjoy the most! It has many components that I love: A remote island ✅, two timelines ✅, multiple points of view ✅, what seems like murder but the identity of the victim and the perpetrator are unknown ✅, and dark secrets from many years ago that are about to be revealed ✅✅✅
Jules, a successful journalist/entrepreneur, is getting married to the famous TV adventure star Will at a remote in Ireland, hosting 150 guests and among them, we have Will’s private school mates, Jules’ sister Olivia and her best friend, Charlie with his wife Hannah. All of them, with secrets and sorrows to hide. What is meant to be a nice weekend away celebrating love, ends up changing the life of the guests.
If I hadn’t predicted the twist/s so early on, I would have given it 5 stars. But, nonetheless, I couldn’t put it down until the end!
My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 Book #16 of 2020 | Goodreads Challenge Prompt: A book which genre stars with a letter in your name: Mystery / Mai!
