Read Online The Guest List Book. A REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK


“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.” — Alex Michaelides, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient

"Evok[es] the great Agatha Christie classics…Pay close attention to seemingly throwaway details about the characters’ pasts. They are all clues.” -- New York Times Book Review

A wedding celebration turns dark and deadly in this deliciously wicked and atmospheric thriller reminiscent of Agatha Christie from the New York Times bestselling author of The Hunting Party.

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.

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, why?

    Remarkable intuitiveness. Fast paced, however, too early telegraphing of the villain. Despite such, like Agatha Christie or the game of Clue, which one would have stopped the monster. Well done. Five stars.
  • Great book!

    By Gate eat
    This book was a great read. I did not find it predictable whatsoever and it kept me interested the whole time
  • Good book but slow.

    By BonniePinder
    I thought the end of this book was impossible to put down. The beginning was a bit slow. Overall I enjoyed it.
  • Entertaining page-turner

    Started off a little slow, but the twisted plot is quite mesmerizing. Good visual imagery. Reminiscent of “Girl on a Train” style, so if you liked that, you’ll enjoy this book.
  • Wonderful Read

    By alygwynne
    Thrilling. Twists and turns. Wonderfully written.
  • It’s not like you know. It’s worse.

    A house, full of lies, a groom, full of chills, a bride, full of wisdom..and guests. Full of hate. You may think it as a thriller, it is, that’s fair. But I think it as a most... peculiar...GAME. It’s all to simple. It’s not who you suspect the least..nor whom you suspect the most. Look for details. In between the lines. But..maybe...instead of just a killing...justice is also done. Maybe, someone could finally rest. Or, maybe...there still out there. Seeking goals. play.

  • Glued to the end

    By KV's10Smom
    It takes a lot to engage me in a book. I was an acquisitions editor for a publishing house. If a manuscript didn’t grab me in the first sentence, it usually wouldn’t interest me past the first page, much less to the end. I lasted to the end. I could be a little nit picky, but I won’t. I wasn’t her editor. I really enjoyed the book, from the first line all the way to the end. Well done. You got me!
