Description

Not all fairy tales have happy endings...

A small group of family and friends head to a beautiful, secluded location in the mountains of Mallorca for the wedding of Alex and Maddie. The Finca Incantata is a magical place-a castle with a cobbled courtyard, a deep, cold, fresh-water pool and a high tower that looks out over the surrounding wilderness.

The guests arrive bringing with them their pretty dresses, their smart suits and their private thoughts about the upcoming marriage. Among them is one guest who is determined to ensure the wedding does not take place...

Who is the malicious presence? Why do they hate so fiercely and so specifically? And just how far will they go to prevent Alex and Maddie tying the knot?

I love thrillers with a wedding theme, especially when set abroad so this sounded right up my street. I found this book to be enjoyable. I liked the multiple POVs and the story was interesting. The pacing was very good and every chapter advanced the plot.

I did think there were a few too many characters - some were barely relevant to the story at all so I'm not sure why they were included. I also wasn't crazy about the ending, but that's personal preference.

Overall, I would recommend this book.

A good story that I'd recommend as an easy read. I liked the writing style and the characters and raced through this story xx

The perfect day of wedding is definitely juxtaposed with secrets and lies, I loved the pace of this book.

This was not in any sense what I was expecting and I loved it.
I love a trope, I really do but this book has them about, but gives you so much more. A wedding in paradise, The conflicts of families, obsession and violence.

I really liked Maddy, I enjoyed reading how she ended up here getting married to Alex. The characters stepped off the page and I was wary of them. Alex’s family being gangsterish could have ruined this, but instead it added.
I loved the writing of complex women, I am so thrilled to have read every single one of them and I will be looking forward to this author’s further work. I was happy to read a situation where women had been pitted against each other and they instead had each other’s back

Finally, the cat. I cannot express how well and how beautifully the cat was written, what a book!

I received this book as an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review which this is.

Thanks to NetGalley and Atlantic Books Corvus for giving me an advance copy.

I felt the characters came together best at the end of the book and wonder if the unravelling would have been better sooner. Saying that, the story was well executed and clever. The setting was good, the final could have been a little less focused on numerous descriptions but I enjoyed this, some parts making me laugh out loud.
