#review The Hunting Party by @lucyfoleytweets

I re-read this whilst on holiday in the Highlands and loved it just as much second time around.
Seven friends – three couples and one singleton, travel to the Scottish Highlands to spend New Year’s Eve in a hunting lodge. And during the trip one of them winds up dead, but who and why isn’t revealed until towards the end.
This was an enjoyable and fun mystery that’s fast-paced and easy to read. The narrative switched between Doug the game keeper who is harbouring a secret, the lodge manger Heather who is hiding from a tragedy and of course the pretentious characters. It also flits from the past and present to give you the back story of the friends and also sow the seed as to who-dunnit.
Great premise, great stetting and the just right mix of pretentious characters that you will love to hate, and honestly I was glad when one of them ended up dead! But in a good way!
About the Author:
I live in London, but love traveling – both in real life and on the page (hence the appearance of some far flung locations in my writing).
My latest novel is The Invitation – set in the film world of the 1950s, along the Italian Riviera.
My debut novel, The Book of Lost & Found, published in early 2015.
**I would like to thank NetGalley for my ARC in exchange for an honest review.**
