The story is set in Ireland at a nearby island where you need to take a ferry to get there. We meet five people, the Bride, the Bridesmaid, the Best Man, the Wedding Planner, and the Plus-One.
Little do they know, apart from knowing the soon-to-be newlyweds, they are all entangled around one person who is the root cause of all their pain and problems.
The theme is very dark, mysterious, and ominous. The author does a great job of portraying this in the descriptions of the castle-like building and the sea below.
We read many different perspectives of the wedding party, as well as venture into the past to analyze why certain characters constantly feel the way they do. It focuses a lot on loyalty to family and friends, online dating, online presence, jealousy between friends, bullying, relationships altered by an egotistical man, and just a lot of drama that I personally like reading in books.
There were quite a few OMG moments where I had to reread certain pages. The book is all about finding the murderer and let’s just say it was but it also wasn’t, a surprise.
Initially it was hard to read the story and I felt that in some parts it dragged on with lots of extra details. However, because the story is written in multiple view points, it made it more interesting and easier to follow the chain of events leading up to the point where we readers find out who the murderer was. I found it really cool that the story was set in a different country so we could see the different ways they spoke (Expressions and vocabulary) and a little glimpse into what the weather was like. I would love to visit Ireland one day!
