READ MY BOOK REVIEW
The Last Party by Clare Mackintosh is a slower paced murder mystery. While I did enjoy the writing and the clever twist at the end, I found this book to be way too long for what the story was telling. I think its because the author added way too many side characters who could have done the deed and all these characters boggled down the actual mystery. It just stopped mattering to be because there were so many people and so many stories within the story to keep up with. Had a few of these side characters been eliminated from the story and we stuck to just a few of the important ones then I think the story would have had more appeal to me. However, I feel like the 400+ pages for this type of murder mystery was just too long.
Will I read the next book in the series? I might! Especially if it isn’t as lengthy as this one because I did enjoy both Ffion and Leo and would love to see how their story progresses from here. I also enjoyed the setting and how descriptive it was. I felt like I was in that icy cold lake while reading!
