The Guest List Summary
Here is a The Guest List Summary: On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.
But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.
And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important.

The Guest List Book Reviews
Alex Michaelides, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient
“I loved this book. It gave me the same waves of happiness I get from curling up with a classic Christie…The alternating points of view keep you guessing, and guessing wrong.”
5.0 out of 5 stars
Quite the list…

I typically don’t enjoy multiple POV novels (the back and forth can be tedious and tiresome), but this all came together deliciously. It was a great way to let off a bit of steam vicariously. I’m afraid to say more for fear of spoiling anything, but a great, smooth summer read. Truly enjoyed it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Jolly Good Fun
Reviewed in the United States on June 5, 2020
Good craic from start to finish. A wedding on an isolated island that seems to want its own revenge. Walk right and you fall from a cliff, walk left and you drown in quicksand. Try swimming and you’re caught in riptides. And what about the bodies buried in the bog? Not an especially safe place for drinking and cavorting (which the guests do non-stop). The author could have a franchise based on her characters: Death at the Stag, Who Smothered Mother, Bullies I Have Known! (no spoilers here) Into this menacing locale come our heroes, aging schoolboys, unhappy wives, dis-functional families, all of whom seem capable of homicide. So who dies, who kills the victim, and why? Read the book and enjoy the journey of discovery.
5.0 out of 5 stars a different kind of who done it

each chapter is from one of guest at the wedding it gives an insight in who they are it is not until the near end you will find out who is the victim
5.0 out of 5 stars As good, if not better, as The Hunting Party

Impossible to put down, amazing and intriguing characters that kept surprising you until the very end
5.0 out of 5 stars A sharply written, surprisingly funny whodunit
Reviewed in the United States on June 10, 2020
Well written whodunit told from multiple points of view, centered on a high profile wedding set at a remote island. One thing I haven’t seen mentioned is the wit and insight the author shows, providing many “out loud” laughs throughout this dark thriller. Especially amusing is the social climbing, entitled Bride-zilla at the center of the proceedings. This is my first Lucy Foley book but I find myself wanting more.
5.0 out of 5 stars Foley strikes gold again!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 26, 2020
Intriguing and captivating. I think that some of the reviewers who gave this book one star may have bad intentions. Read it and judge for yourself. I thought it was great!
5.0 out of 5 stars Good

I pre ordered this book as I’d read the hunting party, yes the basic story is similar ,a lot of people thrown together this time for a celebration, I guessed some back story before the end, which didn’t spoil the story at all , I actually cared and disliked some of the characters, which is no mean feat, enjoyed this book immensely, I’m just annoyed with myself that I read it so quickly!! When’s the next book out?
