The Guest List by Lucy Foley (a book blurt)

A mystery with so many turns you feel like you’re in a maze, but there is a satisfactory end. Two bigger-than-life personalities matched perfectly. An unforgettable wedding that will have people talking for years. Not because of the Gaelic island setting or the $3,000 wedding cake or hell-raising pranks of the groomsmen, among other memorable sights and events. But because a murder happened during the wedding celebration. Who done it? You will eventually know, as each chapter alternates primarily among four key characters – the bride, the bridesmaid, the plus-one, the wedding planner, and the best man. A few interspersed  chapters are told in the third person. The lively writing and well-developed characters make for a good read as well.  Of all the weddings that have been going on this year, this is one not to miss. No RSVP needed.

Littlest one got missed,
Jiji is one of the pack;
He can melt hearts too.

Jiji loves to sleep,
But he has a strange craving—
He tends to eat grass.

Mooman likes to cuddle,
Marmalade enjoys eating,
Case scares easily.

What about Babee?
She is special to the cats–
By annoying them.
