They went away as friends.
They came back as suspects.
Rachel and Jack. Paige and Noah. And Will. Five friends who’ve known one another for years. Then along came Ali, Will’s new fiancée.
The three couples travel to Portugal for Ali and Will’s destination wedding. The weekend away at the gorgeous cliff-top villa is a chance to relax and get to know Ali an little better. She seems perfectly nice—and Will seems happy after years of bad choices.
But when Rachel discovers a shocking secret about Ali, everything changes. As the wedding weekend unfolds, the secrets each of them holds begin to spill, and friendships and marriages threaten to unravel.
In Sandie Jones’s explosive new suspense novel, jumping to conclusions can become the difference between life and death.
The Guilt Trip is about three couples on a destination wedding trip. Lies and secrets are revealed, threatening the relationships.
Will and Ali are getting married. Rachel is married to Jack, Will’s brother. The other married couple is Paige and Noah, an old friend of Rachel. There are six characters, but the story is told from Rachel’s point of view. The characters are all hiding something, and none are particularly likable.
I’ve read other books by Sandie Jones, and enjoyed them all. The Guilt Trip wasn’t quite as thrilling as I was hoping, but it was still an enjoyable read. Good for fans of dramatic domestic suspense novels.
I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
