The "twist" wasn't much of one for me; I figured it out long before the end. However, I really enjoyed the writing style and thought the story was well done overall.

95% character development.
Where is Pete?
She really screwed Johnno and let Aoife off?
Was it Aoife’s shoe? I couldn’t remember who wore those.
Hannah never got closure?

I mean, sure I liked this book but it seemed that the last 30 pages were the actual story and they didn’t even tie it up into a pretty bow. Lol

Really good atmosphere in this book (a castle on an island in Ireland, only able to be reached by ferry); and an intriguing tale of murder and mystery, set against the backdrop of a wedding. This multiple perspective novel starts with the gruesome discovery and then backtracks to the day before, telling chapters through various lenses: the wedding planner, the bride, the plus one, the bridesmaid, the best man...to a satisfying cohesive whole.
