characters Her Dark Lies

At the wedding of the year a killer needs no invitationJutting from sparkling turuoise waters off the Italian coast Isle Isola is an idyllic setting for a wedding In the majestic cliff top villa owned by the wealthy Compton family up and coming artist Cla In Her Dark Lies artist Claire is about to marry extremely wealthy Jack Compton on his family's private island in Italy Then the bad things start happening Do you like excessive descriptions of landscape and locations? Would you like to read page after page of details about the island and house? Do you like it when the protagonists gloss over the major events of the book so they can continue to describe their environment? Then Her Dark Lies is the book for you I stuck it out to the end but this book majorly drags There's a lot of good ideas here and many of the twists have potential Unfortunately they never uite clicked Things that should have been dealt with in detail by the characters like the ruined wedding dress mentioned in the synopsis are all just waved away Perhaps this is supposed to reinforce the idea of a secretive powerful family but it felt like something was missing There were a few twists you could see coming from a mile away and not because I'm some great detective but because they've been famously done before I think there is an audience for this book I might possibly recommend it for someone who liked The Guest List as a the power goes out at a location wedding readalike but Her Dark Lies wasn't for me Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review
