The Wedding Party by Tammy Cohen
In my opinion...
In a very Mama Mia sort of way, this aspirational wedding has a lovely Greek setting and is an influencer's dream- all the bride wants is that everything is Instagram perfect, and at first I assumed that this was going to be a very superficial story.
Instead I came across a cast of horribly credible characters and a fast paced story, where I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough.
I was gripped and in my mind's eye I can still envisage the glamorous location. The novel moves at great pace, everybody seems to have a secret, most are quite unpleasant and as the story progresses, everyone is a suspect. Certainly I didn't trust anybody, and half way through still hadn't guessed who had done what!
Probably all a lot of us want to do at the moment is jet off somewhere exotic, and maybe it was my longing to travel that made it even more realistic. If there's a sun lounger somewhere that has your name on it, this is a great one to have as your holiday read.

Till death do us part....
Lucy has dreamt of her wedding day for as long as she can remember.
And now the day is almost here. Her nearest and dearest are gathered on an idyllic Greek island and she just knows it's going to be perfect. It has to be.
But even the best-laid plans can go horribly wrong. Why are her parents behaving so strangely? Why won't the rather odd lady from the airport stop hanging around? Who is the silent stranger her sister brought as a plus-one?
And then they find the body.
It's going to be a day to remember.
