CHARGE (What is the author trying to say?): To solve a murder after four women confess to the killing.
FACTS: A society wedding party books an exclusive spa and resort for a week of festivities. The action switches back and forth from the perspective of four wedding guests who ultimately confess to the same murder. Old college rivalries, family dysfunction, abuse, and financial crimes all contribute to the mystery. Expected solutions are derailed as the facts fall into place. It’s not great literature, but it is a pleasant read.
VERDICT (Was the author successful?): Guilty, as charged. Imaginative twists and turns.
