Bella travels in disguise to the opening weekend of The Manor, an opulent resort in Tome on the Dorset coast in England, to settle a score with the owner, Francesca. The book switches back and forth, chapter by chapter, covering Francesca, Owen, Bella, Eddie, and DI Walker's views of what led up to the time when a woman is found on the beach after falling from a cliff and the resort burning. Bella's and Francesca's stories occur 15 years ago and in the present. Owen's, Eddie's, and DI Walker's stories occur primarily in the present. Owen is Francesca's husband and the architect of The Manor who is keeping secrets about his upbringing. Francesca is also keeping some very dark secrets of her earlier life. Eddie is a young man from an impoverished local farm who works as a dishwasher and whose brother became a drug addict and disappeared 15 years ago. DI Walker is from London and specializes in cold cases, but has come to investigate this one. He is also hiding a secret. The legend of The Birds that mete out justice to those who hurt others and/or the land runs throughout the story.… (mere)

This is by far my favorite Lucy Foley book! If you’ve read her other work, you’ll have an idea how it’s set up and general premise as a whodunnit. I felt this was much more intricate than the Guest List or Hunting Party. There were so many layers and twists. I wanted to rate this 5 stars on that fact alone, but honestly it was a little slow at times. Going to keep this at a 4 star because while I seriously appreciate all the work that went into weaving this story together, I found myself bored from time to time. If you like her other work, I would definitely recommend this one!… (mere)

This one feels like a rewrite of The Club mashed with Foley's own Guest List. It's not bad and there were two good twists, but it felt so familiar. A fancy resort celebrates its opening, but many guests have secrets. The flashback sections of the novel unfold a dark history on the resort's land. I did like the ending and was entertained, but it's not a new favorite.
