At a Glance
Title: The Guest List
Author: Lucy Foley
Published: June 2, 2020 by William Morrow
Genre: Thriller, Mystery
Goodreads Rating: 4.01out of 5
My Rating: ★★★★
The Guest List, like Foley’s release last year The Hunting Party, is a solid thriller. Unlike last year this one is less on the psychological side and more on the murder mystery side.
There are a lot of point of views in this story however they’re all such different characters that it’s fairly easy to remember them. They’re also each developed well with flushed out backstories and history which makes it all the easier to invest in the story.
There are some sensitive topics touched on through the story such as abortion, so be weary of that. Otherwise this is a strong thriller that will keep you guessing until the final chapter.
