Review:

This book was highly recommended by so many amazing bookstagrammers and friends and it didn’t disappoint. From page one I was transported to a story full of twists, drama and mystery.

The story is told from the point of view of several of the main characters, changing with each new chapter, and it also jumps around its timeline from the night of the wedding to the days’ prior to the big day. This slightly complicated narrative just makes the plot build up more interesting and we are never sure about what is going to happen. I really liked the character development throughout the story and how there were links between each of the guests that are revealed or discovered.

I am not going to lie… I didn’t like some of the characters but I think this is what was intentional by the author. Every single character brought something important to the story and this made it easy to read. The writing was really good and made me feel like I was in the story, like I could see and hear everything that was happening in the scene.

The end was excellent but somehow I just wanted to know a bit more about the characters and the story after the murder.

Do I recommend this book… Definitely!
