Mini-Review: The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley

Categories: Thriller, Mystery


In The Hunting Party, a group of old friends gets together in an isolated hunting lodge in Scotland to celebrate the New Year, as they do every year. Although they seem to be excited and happy to see each other, old and new grudges escalate the tensions between them, and on January 2nd, a body is found.

This is one of the best mysteries I’ve ever read! I fell in love with the writing from the first chapter, so atmospheric and engrossing. This book came highly recommended from my sister, who is the best source of thriller recommendations, honestly. Each of the characters has secrets, the guests who claim to be friends but seem sometimes to actually hate each other, and also the people working in the lodge. Every story line, every secret, every character was so interesting, I could not stop reading this! It was also super intriguing to not really know who died until quite far into the book, keeping the reader guessing who killed whom and why, suspiciously analyzing the actions of everyone. It was so fun to read and reminded me a lot of the way I devoured Agatha Christie books when I was younger. This was absolutely brilliant and I can’t wait to read Lucy Foley’s The Guest List!

  1. Ooh, this sounds great! Foley has been on my radar lately for her new releae, The Guest List, but actually this one sounds even more appealing to me. I think I’ll add it to my list. Glad you loved it! 🙂

    • Yes, I only got to know her because of the buzz around The Guest List, but this one sounded more appealing to me, too. My sister loved this so much. I’ve been hearing that The Guest List is even better, and I can hardly wait for it to come out.
