You're Invited by Amanda Jayatissa

Why would your former best friend that you hadn’t talked to for ten years invite you to her wedding to your ex-boyfriend?

Amaya was very confused since Kaavi’s family forbid her to contact them over some incident years ago.

Amaya also couldn’t believe Kaavi was marrying Spencer.  She knew she had to stop the wedding.

Both Kaavi’s mother and father were furious when they saw her…did Kaavi have some plan Amaya and others did not know about or was she just rubbing it in?

There is an undertone with all the characters that seems to hint that everyone is hiding something.  So who really did stop the wedding by attacking Kaavi?

We follow the police interviews of each guest and hear comments that could incriminate any of the characters.   No one held any resentment or gossip back during the interviews.

The book dragged on a bit, and didn’t get “meaty” until 40%, but I kept reading and guessing.
Some twists and surprises.

Be aware there are some disturbing habits the characters have.  3/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.


  1. I am always happy when I see a new Sri Lankan author on the horizon. I will be looking out for this one.

    1. Enjoy when you read it, Mystica.

      Thanks for your comment.

  2. If it didn't draw you in until 40% I don't think I'd have finished. Good on you for hanging in there.
