A celebrity wedding reception on a remote island during a storm so nobody can get to or leave the island, a power outage, a load of wedding guests with some mysterious pasts... There's almost no better mixture for a murder!
I couldn't put this book down. I believe it took me a whopping two days to read. It is full of interesting characters, some more likeable than others, with all sorts of realistic flaws. Each chapter is written from a different character's point of view. I find that to be a tough mechanic to pull off, but Foley nails it. The timing with the "earlier/later" sections (another mechanic I find tricky) is pretty much perfect. The references to the mysterious events of the stag party add an interesting angle to the story. I felt there were maybe a few coincidences too many at the end, but I was still satisfied (and somewhat surprised) with the answer to whodunnit.
