The Guest List – Haley – Staff Review

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

The novel takes place during a wedding weekend on a remote island off the coast of Ireland. Friends of the famous couple join together for what is to be a lavish event. Between the past experiences of the wedding party, the alcohol and the ominous storm setting in, the wedding becomes anything but festive. After a body is found dead, the wedding turns into a nightmare.

I was not a fan of the book at all. I found the characters of the wedding party to be dislikeable and was not vested in their story. A few of the weaves of the tangled storyline web were too far fetched to make the overall novel realistic. While I have enjoyed other novels by Lucy Foley, this one is better left on the shelf.
