The Engagement Party by Darby Kane

No one wanted to go to the engagement party of a college friend who had been engaged numerous times.

When they arrived, one of the friends who was not one who had attended college with everyone, wanted to immediately leave.

The group had to park and get to the venue via a water taxi that can only move safely when the tide is out.

Would they make it to the island?  

They made it to the island, but would they make it back off the island?

The minute they arrived, everyone felt uneasy and then a car was found in the garage with a dead body in the trunk.

Not just any body….it was the body of one of their friends who did something awful years ago.  

Along with the body was a note that said: Time to tell the truth.  

That note referred to the disappearance and murder twelve years ago of their friend Emily.

Why did their friend want to have the engagement party on this remote, not easily accessed island?

Who was really behind this invitation and what were they up to?

A tense read with the reader wondering who if any of these friends killed Emily twelve years ago and who killed the man in the trunk.  5/5

Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this book.  All opinions are my own.
