Guest List

I devoured The Guest List while on a recent vacation. It is a fun, fast-paced beach-read mystery. And I rather enjoyed it even though it was a little over the top at times. The story follows various people in a wedding party for a high-profile wedding that will take place on a remote island off the coast of Ireland. Readers hear from the bride, a woman who is a plus one, the wedding planner, the best man, the bride’s younger sister, and the groom. It is supposed to be the perfect wedding for the perfect couple: the bride is a smart and glamorous magazine publisher while the groom is a rising television star. The wedding venue is luxurious and remote and the guest list is strictly A-list. But then things start to go from bad to worse, all the more so when someone turns up dead… A few of the twists were a little over the top, like I mentioned, and the characters weren’t all fully developed, but the book kept me guessing with the interweaving story lines, changing timelines, and slow teasing out of the pieces of the mystery. An all around fun summer read.
