Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: During the languid days of the Christmas break, a group of thirtysomething friends from Oxford meet to welcome in the New Year together, a tradition they began as students ten years ago. For this vacation, they've chosen an idyllic and isolated estate in the Scottish Highlands--the perfect place to get away and unwind by themselves. They arrive on December 30th, just before a historic blizzard seals the lodge off from the outside world. But after a decade, the weight of secret resentments has grown too heavy for the group's tenuous nostalgia to bear. Amid the boisterous revelry of New Year's Eve, the cord holding them together snaps. On New Year's Day, one of them is dead, and another of them did it.

    A group of London friends arrive at exclusive Loch Corrin in the Scottish Highlands for a New Year's get-together and find the location a bit too remote—it's a mile to the main road, Wi-Fi is unreliable, and, when they get snowed in, things turn frightening. A prologue reveals that a guest has been found dead, and the ensuing chapters switch back and forth between the days leading up to the death and those just after, all the while uncovering the friends' past misdeeds and entanglements. Anyone who's grown apart from old friends will recognize the yearning depicted here to make everything as it was; Foley (The Book of Lost and Found, 2015) tempers the sentimentality with the guests' efforts to best one another and the social clash between them and the workers at the lodge. Readers are left wondering until the end which guest has died as well as who the killer is; they will be well rewarded by the story's ending. A great read-alike for this is Shari Lapena's recent An Unwanted Guest (2018). Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
