Lucy Foley's modern day whodunit is an impressive piece of prose that kept me guessing all the way till the end. It's a must read. I liked reading the story through the 1st person narrative of the different characters and how the past and the present came together. Note though, that the Guest List is a slow burn. The payoff doesn't come until near the end of the book. However, IMO, the payoff is worth it because of the painstaking way Ms. Foley has built the backstory of the main characters. Also, you are not going to care for several of the main characters. I believe that is by design,
Ms. Foley has written a really crafty and c;lever novel. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I very happily give it 5 stars.
