The Guilt Trip by Sandie Jones

 

The Guilt Trip is a slow to start novel with all the pieces coming together in the last few chapters.  There is  a destination wedding where friends and family fly to Portugal.  Rachel and Mark are a married couple as are Paige and Noah. They are flying to Portugal with Ali, Mark's future sister-in-law. Ali seems like a gorgeous ditz and Mark has concerns about her marrying his brother. 

The secrets between friends are refered to and there is much back and forth over what they want to share with one another.  Lots of miscommunication and it reminded me of a television show where everyone misunderstood one another.  Jealousy, betrayal and murder are the themes.

While I didn't love ths book it wouldn't stop me from trying another by this author.  I just felt it could have been shorter and some "issues" were rehashed more than they ought to have been. In my opinion.

Publication date August 3, 2021 by  St Martin's Press.  Genre: Women's Fiction, Mystery and Thrillers.

Thank you to NetGalley for the advanced reader's copy of this book.  I was not compensated for the review, all opinions are mine.
