Pickpick

A fun & engrossing read that is best consumed in one breathless, nail-biting, heart thumping sitting to avoid breaking the tension. A clever twist on the whodunit - you're also guessing who they dunit to! Characters are nicely despicable & everyone has motives aplenty to top any/all of the others so there's plenty of very enjoyable guesswork to be had with lots of juicy red herrings. Pacing is spot on, tension & suspense build really well ⬇️⬇️⬇️

readingjedi Cont. from above.... and secrets reveal themselves in a slow but satisfying manner. I genuinely did not guess who did what to who till right at the end. A really enjoyable read. 6d

A group of nine friends decide to spend New Year‘s Eve at a remote lodge in the Scottish Highlands. Each have secrets, and for one of them, this will be the last New Year‘s Eve they celebrate. I loved the writing but didn‘t have the warm fuzzies for the characters. The narrative changes perspective between the characters - I suspected who the victim was about halfway through, but couldn‘t guess the killer until the end. Worthy read!

MidnightBookGirl I really liked this book too! 2w

I enjoyed this murder mystery and the remote setting but it dragged a bit. Some of the characters were intriguing and some were not filled in sufficiently so it could be unveiled at the end. Took me too long to get through this though

A New Year‘s reunion for 8 friends in the remote Scottish wilderness and one is a murderer and one won‘t make it out alive! Historic blizzard seals the lodge from the outside world. Story is full of suspense, secrets and surprises. Interesting characters that find out how keeping your friends close can be harmful! Reminded me of Agatha Christie‘s Orient Express mystery. Kept me guessing all the way thru! Recommended for mystery thriller lovers!

I‘m sure this is a fun winter mystery, but it‘s not something I want to read now. A group of privileged self-absorbed middle-aged friends meet to celebrate New Year‘s at a remote Scottish castle. Someone dies and one of the friends is likely the killer. Meh. Not bad, but just not for now. It‘s springtime after all! 🥶 🔪 🌸 🏰

I had gotten this from a Goodreads giveaway and enjoyed it even more than I thought I would. This book had twists of every kind and the writing was just so good. The author did a good job of concealing everything until she wanted you to know what was happening and I didn‘t guess the outcome. It was suspenseful and exciting and I highly recommend this one.

College friends have a yearly tradition of being together on vacation during for New Year‘s Eve. This time they are in an isolated lodge with just two employees and two strangers. We know early on there is a missing guest but with the alternating past and present time lines we don‘t find out who until the end. There were a lot of secrets and characters. I did audio and there was a full cast with fabulous accents.

Shaking off my #dayfromhell by dissolving into some great books. Finished this debut novel from British author Lucy Foley & I quite enjoyed it. Set on a huge estate in the Scottish Highlands At Hogmanay(NYE)it‘s a whodunnit when everyone had a reason to want her dead. Guessed it halfway through, but as a debut it‘s pretty good.

Helping our youngest move into her very first rental so lots of boxes, clothes & tears. From me mostly. She‘s our baby, our last left which means hubs & I are now empty nesters.😢 Taking a moment while she goes to buy more coat hangers & milk & starting this Scottish thriller about 9 old friends celebrating Hogmanay until a dead body is found in the snow & old secrets are brought to the surface.

I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would based off of other reviews. This is not a fast paced thriller, but instead focuses on the secrets between a group of college friends. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy murder mysteries in a contained setting as well as books focused on interpersonal relationships between friends. This book wound up being a pick for me!

I should technically be reading this right now since it‘s due back soon...but I‘ve been sucked down musical memory lane and think I‘ll just keep watching music videos of all the bands I listened to in high school instead 😅 I blame my brother for asking me today about the music I listened to at his age. Sorry book, another time. 🎶🤘🏻

WorldsOkayestStepMom So now I'm curious what bands were on your playlist! 2mo
gradcat I can really relate to that...when I start listening to music, hours can go by without my even realizing it!! 2mo
RainyDayReading @gradcat It‘s crazy how fast time goes by when you‘ve got music going! I have a bad habit of going on YouTube to look up one song and then I just keep clicking and clicking....next thing I know I‘ve got 10 new bands to listen to and 3 hours have gone by! 2mo

RainyDayReading @WorldsOkayestStepMom Oh so many haha. I fell down the alt rock/emo rabbit hole that night.

I also had a lot of hard rock and metal on my playlist (Seether, Nightwish, Shinedown etc.) 2mo

A fun somewhat locked room mystery with a group of old friends getting together at an isolated hunting lodge for New Years. One ends up dead, and you flip back in forth in time and perspective to learn what happened. A few parts were predictable, but overall a fun read!

Well so far 2019 has been abysmal when it comes to reading. I‘ve finished a bunch of manga but only ONE book 😪 So here‘s some books that I want to read this month... because that‘s been going so well...hopefully by posting them here it‘ll help motivate me to read again. This is part 1 of my TBR, I‘ll post part 2, which is just manga and graphic novels, later. On top of these I have 6 other books I‘m in the middle of that I need to finish 😖

I can see why this got a 43% rating. One major thing I did not like is the slow pacing of the book.I had already guessed who had gotten murdered well before the 30% mark. However, the author chose to do the big reveal in one of the last chapters of the book. Totally boring and frustrating. Also, all of the so called friends are terrible people. Bunch of wankers. The lot of them!

There were many (many) similarities to Ruth Ware's In a dark, dark wood to make this one feel fresh for me, but I did enjoy it. It's a firm 3-3.5 star read for me.

I preferred Foley's The Invitation to this one. That felt like it had more suspense to it yet The Hunting Party is the one getting a huge amount of hype.

Penny_LiteraryHoarders @Hestapleton I really liked Foley's The Invitation. That book was so wrongly blurbed it was just stupid. But I'm looking forward to getting into this one. I think it's another mistakenly blurbed "thriller' when it's not at all a thriller. Which is great because I'm not looking for a thriller. ?? 3mo

If you enjoy a mystery, antics of characters, learning that the characters really didn't show their true colors, and waiting for the “ball to drop,” THE HUNTING PARTY will be a book you will want to read.

Ms. Foley's writing is very descriptive and beautiful.

If you can describe writing as lush, that is how beautiful the sentences flowed and created a picture.

HAPPY PUB DAY!!

An annual reunion of friends on New Year‘s Eve at a new location with the added beauty and terror of a huge snowstorm that cuts everyone off from the rest of the world is where the THE HUNTING PARTY begins.

All of the friends have something to hide, and one turns up dead.

Which friend is the killer?

This was a bit crime by numbers. I never felt surprised by the plot twists. There was an attempt to deepen the main characters, to round them beyond their stereotypes but at the end of the day rich, spoilt, beautiful people are hard for me to get all that worried about. But it is competently written and someone looking for a pacy little mystery might do worse.

9 friends meet at a remote hunting lodge in Scotland for New Year. Secrets, lies, & murder ensue.

Told from several viewpoints, I thought it was well written but I found the plot very predictable. Rating: 3⭐️

While I must admit I didn‘t really find any of the characters particularly likeable, This a real whodunnit like Agatha Christie‘s books. Lucy Foley has written a slow, smouldering, tension building tale which will keep you reading into the early hours. I can thoroughly recommend it...

I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest revie
