The Hunting Party
Old friends from Oxford have an annual New Year reunion, this time based in a remote Scottish lodge, miles from anywhere, and with an extreme weather event on the way. As the snow closes in couples bicker, friendships and loyalties are reconsidered, and one of them ends up dead. But who did it?
Great mystery thriller in sort of updated Agatha Christie style. She even keeps the identity of the victim hidden for most of the book!
Score: 8.5

The Guest List
Jules and Will are getting married. Posh wedding on a remote island, with some ex-public school boys included amongst the guests, who seem determined to have some wild fun. Also some dark secrets are uncovered from pretty much everybody's past. Then, with the weather deteriorating fast, a body is discovered...
Pretty entertaining, nicely written, clever plot, bit like her other one.
