Book Review: The Guest List by Lucy Foley

Hello, my name is Judith! Welcome to my blog, ReadandReview.

I was so excited to be approved on NetGalley to read The Guest List after I read and loved her previous novel, The Hunting Party.

Well, The Guest List is even better than The Hunting Party.

The Guest List is a thrilling closed-circle murder mystery novel. On an island just off the Irish coast, guests gather for the celebrity wedding of the year. The wedding seems to go smoothly – until someone is found dead. A a furious storm approaches, leaving the guests trapped on the island – trapped with a murderer.

The Guest List was, quite simply, excellent.

The introductory chapters and characterisation were very good; I clearly knew each character’s personalities, motivations, andI was intrigued to learn what secrets they were keeping from one another. The descriptions were so vivid and immersive that I could imagine everything inside my head perfectly.

In addition, the pacing was just right throughout, and I thoroughly enjoyed my reading experience. I couldn’t put the book down, but I also didn’t want it to end!

The Guest List is full of excellent twists and turns and, due to the well-crafted chronological structure of the book, I was kept guessing until the very final chapters.

I can’t wait to buy a physical copy of The Guest List, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Star Rating: 5/5 Stars
