The bride ‧ The plus one ‧ The best man ‧ The wedding planner ‧ The bridesmaid ‧ The body

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.

And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?


A slow burner that failed to hold my interest.

I liked the premise of this book and even though the writing was quite good, I still struggled to get invested in the characters, which made it all the more difficult to care about who did what and for what reason. Most of the twists were rather predictable and the finale was a bit too hasty for my liking.

This book was not my cup of tea but I’m sure a lot of people will find it quite entertaining!

I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the Author for sending me a copy of this book.
