Goodreads: Four Women. Four Confessions. One Murder.
Something has gone terribly wrong at the Banks wedding. A man is dead. Four different women rush to offer confessions, each insisting that they committed the crime — alone.
Ginger is holding her family together by a thread, and this wedding weekend is not the fabulous getaway she anticipated.
Kate has enough money to buy her way out of anything. Well, almost anything.
Emily can’t shake her reputation or her memories, and she’s planning to drown this whole vacation in a bottle.
Lulu’s got ex-husbands to spare, and another on the way — as soon as she figures out what the devil the current husband is up to behind her back.
Why would they confess to the same murder? Only they know — and they’re not telling. This page-turning novel explores the depths of friendship and the truths we love to ignore.
Ope’s Opinion: I picked this book up on a whim at the Book Expo 2019. I had not read this author before and didn’t know much about the book. The synopsis sounded cute and thought it would be a fun read.
The introduction to each character at the beginning of the book was clever. It gave you insight to each person, their relationship to the wedding and a little background, so you could understand them.
There wasn’t a reliable narrator – which was frustrating. Who was really telling the truth? The murder seemed to be a side story. The relationships are at the center of this book.
The ending and epilogue left me with more questions then it answered – not really satisfying.
Sorry you didn’t like the book, I think I’ll pass on it.
