The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley


n a remote hunting lodge, deep in the Scottish wilderness, old friends gather.

The beautiful one

The golden couple

The volatile one

The new parents

The quiet one

The city boy

The outsider

The victim.

While I enjoyed this book it is by no means something we’ve not seen before. A group of old friends have gone to a remote Scottish lodge for New Years Eve and end up being trapped by a snowstorm when one of them is murdered. 

It is started with the finding of the body and it then goes back to 3 days before from when the friends first arrived and switches backwards and forwards every couple of chapters. During the 3 days we find out more about each person their past relationships with each other but not really what they are like so much now.

 It’s written from the perspective of 3 of the female friends and even thought he same moments are shown through each persons eyes at times at no point does it feel repetitive. 

The main story, apart from the murder of course, is can you really stay friends with people for that long. The characters have been friends since university and are now well into their 30’s. The have changed and grown, They are each at different points in their life and don’t necessarily know each other that well any more. 

This book was slightly predictable and I could see the ending coming but that doesn’t mean i didn’t enjoy it or wouldn’t read it again.
