Book: The Guest List
Author: Lucy Foley
This is my 112th read for the year
This is the story of several people who are part of a wedding on a remote island in Ireland. - The bride, the groom, the plus one, the best man, the bridesmaid, the wedding planner. When the bride and groom invite their friends and family to their exclusive wedding, the last thing they expected is that it would end in murder. The story begins with the discovery of a body and then goes backward to bring about what caused the murder. Jealousies, old loves, and secrets are all brought to light with the 6 narrators of the story. In the end - someone loses their life and trying to figure out why.
This book was okay. It has 20,000 reviews on Amazon and is a Reese Whiterspoon Book Club Pick (which is my guess on why so many reviews), but it wasn't a good book. It is one of those books that keeps the reader in the dark for no reason what so ever. I didn't really like any of the characters. And once it was discovered who was murdered and why - I didn't even care. I listened to this as an audiobook to pass some time while I did some painting in our house, and that would be the only reason to pick this one up - to pass time.
