I am usually pretty good at figuring out twists and turns when reading books. Not this time. Author Lucy Foley got me and not just once. Her new novel The Guest List is filled with so many twists and turns you don’t see coming. It might just be the book of the summer.
The story centers around one weekend when Jules and Will are getting married. The wedding is taking place on an Island off the coast of Ireland. The guest list includes family and friends of Will’s from school. Each chapter is told from the perspective of a different character before the wedding, during the wedding and after it’s over.
Each main person seems to have a secret and as the weekend moves along they all come out. Sex, drugs, alcohol and someone dead is at the center of the story. To say anymore might giveaway one of the many twists and turns that happen in the book.
I can guarantee you will not be disappointed after reading this book. Available in stores on Tuesday, June 2nd from Morrow.
