Book review: The Guest List by Lucy Foley


Julia and Will are the picture perfect couple. Will is a television star and Julia owns a magazine. The wedding is planned at an island off the coast of Ireland. Throughout the weekend, many unspoken feelings, past issues, and secrets surface and then someone is found dead. What happens to lead up to this?

My Thoughts:

The book shifts from past to present and throughout several characters. If you read The Hunting Party, it is set up very similar. The book starts out rather slow, but the purpose of this is to set up every character’s background story in order to understand the motives for each character’s actions. Once the prior knowledge is confirmed, the plot was really engaging and suspenseful.

This was one of Reese Witherspoon’s monthly picks for June of 2020. Reese hasn’t failed me with any of her picks yet, and she didn’t fail me in June either!
