A REESE’S BOOK CLUB PICKINSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER“Are you ready for the roller coaster ride that is The Club? . . . A beautifully written, densely plotted murder mystery that takes place at a private club off the coast of England. Read about a luxurious, celeb-only island during a weekend of partying and ultimately murder.” —Reese Witherspoon (Reese’s Book Club March ’22 Pick)From the author of People Like Her comes a smart and sinister murder mystery set in the secretive world of exclusive celebrity clubs.Everyone’s Dying to Join . . . The Home Group is a glamorous collection of celebrity members’ clubs dotted across the globe, where the rich and famous can party hard and then crash out in its five-star suites, far from the prying eyes of fans and the media.The most spectacular of all is Island Home—a closely-guarded, ultraluxurious resort, just off the English coast—and its three-day launch party is easily the most coveted A-list invite of the decade.But behind the scenes, tensions are at breaking point: the ambitious and expensive project has pushed the Home Group’s CEO and his long-suffering team to their absolute limits. All of them have something to hide—and that’s before the beautiful people with their own ugly secrets even set foot on the island. As tempers fray and behavior worsens, as things get more sinister by the hour and the body count piles up, some of Island Home’s members will begin to wish they’d never made the guest list.Because at this club, if your name’s on the list, you’re not getting out.
This is told in a multiple POV which is quickly becoming my favorite. I also love the whole VIP club, only for celebrities and the A list people .. everyone wants to join and the people working there feel so lucky.There is backstabbing and secrets, gosh I love secrets. I will say it was rather a slow build for me.. but overall with sticking around for.I did enjoy this book. There was one mystery but then more seemed to develop as one was revealed. I just love a mystery in the world of luxury.Thank you netgalley for the ARC
Most of the characters in this book are despicable. The story line kept me reading as there is a good bit going on simultaneously.This story takes place over a 36-48-ish hour timeframe, so things are moving quickly.You’ll cheer, you’ll jeer, you’ll want to throw something, but you’ll read until the end and I recommend it.
—In a world of celebrity, exclusive clubs located in private beautiful destinations providing luxuries and recreation offer members a “safe” space, free from paparazzi, fans, and “work”. And because these club members have been carefully screened and specifically chosen, they have paid exorbitant premiums to maintain their membership. For most of the members, Home has offered freedom and pleasures, which have not always been as easily available. However, Home is not always what one imagines and on the grand opening of the newest destination, some members receive new contracts and terms for membership that threaten the future of their careers and lives. Fast, riveting read—-
An OK read. While this book kept my attention through the whole thing, I often found myself skipping unnecessary, long drawn out details and really having to concentrate on all the different characters to keep them straight.
I read it in two days, could of finished it in one. I couldn’t wait to see the ending. Easy to read, very enjoyable.
