I didn’t realize I was reading this early as it was my Book of the Month pick! (I love when BOTM gets things early!!!) It’s set at high-profile, beautiful power couple Jules + Will’s wedding on a tiny, secluded island off the coast of Ireland. Jules owns a digital magazine and Will is a rising actor. On paper, they are perfect… and in person, they are gorgeous together. It’s a fast-paced, Agatha Christie style thriller. We know right from the start that there’s been a murder, we just aren’t sure who was killed… or who did it! It’s told via the perspectives of the bride, the best man, the bride’s sister, the wedding planner, and a plus-one. While I did guess the biggest twist, there were other little twists throughout that completely shocked and blindsided me. I will say that the first half of the book was a little slow (all the characters and the Irish names/phrases took me a little while to get into) but once I did, I fell in love with the book and couldn’t stop!
