The House Party is set on the Isle of Wight – insular,claustrophobic, and with nowhere to run. Mary Grand has written a heart-stopping novel of secrets, betrayal and desire, perfect for fans of Louise Candlish and Lucy Foley.
This has been a good read. I have found it’s full of tension and suspense. The plot is interesting, although slightly different to anticipated I have enjoyed reading this one and found it has been a unique read.
I have liked the characters in this book, they have seemed real and likeable. Grand has given them personalities that become clear as you read this one.
Although this is a book which is more slow paced than I usually prefer. I have found that the ending has really picked up the pace and thrown surprises in which have left me speechless.
This book has held my attention and kept me guessing so I would recommend this one.
