💭MY THOUGHTS 💭
I knew there was a reason I wanted to get my hands on this book. It’s bloody amazing that’s why.
Think about it. It’s the perfect setting for a mystery. A deserted island, cut off from the mainland. A storm is lashing away causing huge waves. There’s a cave in the cliffs for people to sneak off to. Around the island the guests need to watch out for peat bogs that they could accidentally sink into. This island is a dangerous place as it is without throwing in a load of people with deep dark secrets, revenge on their mind and lots and lots of motives.
Lucy Foley has written a masterpiece in drawing in the reader into a tangled web of mystery.
The story opens on a wedding night, the guests are in full swing. The cake has been cut. But, with the storm blowing a gale the lights go out, and a scream is heard. From that point it’s our role as the reader to piece this mystery together. We are told the story from the viewpoint of different characters from the wedding party. Their stories start from the day before the wedding and works up to the main event.
I love this format as it builds up each character and we get to form an opinion of them through their interactions with each other. Lots of secrets are discovered along the way, and we uncover a few stories that could warrant revenge and murder!
What I enjoyed was that we didn’t even know who had been murdered. So, it was a double mystery.
A fantastic story full of mystery, lies and secrets. Plus an island that was steeped in history and made for even more creepiness.
