The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley Review

I absolutely loved this book! The story takes place in an isolated estate during winter, it was so very well described and atmospheric that I felt cold and wanted to drink hot chocolate the whole time! 

The book starts out by the reader knowing that someone has died and has possibly been murdered. However, we don't know who the victim is up until the very end! Throughout the book we are trying to figure out who dies and who could have killed the victim, therefore the story pulls us in every direction and keeps us guessing all the way through! 

This definitely was a page-turner and super entertaining read! The story kept going back and forth from the past to the present and was narrated using different POVs. I really love that kind of storytelling because I feel like you get the most out of the story! The only reason this isn't a 5 stars read for me is just that the twists were a tad predictable, but still very well executed! Additionally, I really enjoyed the ending of the story! This was a great read!

Thank you to HarperCollins Canada for providing me with an ARC of this book. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


All of them are friends. One of them is a killer.

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.

Two days later, on New Year’s Day, one of them is dead.

The trip began innocently enough: admiring the stunning if foreboding scenery, champagne in front of a crackling fire, and reminiscences about the past. 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.

Now one of them is dead . . . and another of them did it.
