Seven of the best thrillers set at weddings

Amanda Jayatissa loves to read disturbing books with shocking plot twists, so it seemed logical to her that she should attempt to write disturbing books with shocking plot twists. When she isn’t recovering from a self-induced book hangover, she works tirelessly as the chief taste tester at the cookie shop she co-owns. She grew up in Sri Lanka and has lived in the California bay area and British countryside, before relocating back to her sunny island, where she lives with her husband and two Tasmanian-devil-reincarnate huskies.

Jayatissa's new thriller is You're Invited.

At CrimeReads she tagged seven top thrillers set at weddings, including:
Her Dark Lies, by J T Ellison

When modest and mousy artist Claire Hunter agreed to marry the handsome, wealthy Jack Compton, she didn’t expect the extra additions to her guest list—an intruder the night before they leave, literal skeletons in the closet, and a ruined wedding dress. Add in a raging storm, a power outage, and a killer on the loose, and you have a twisty locked-room thriller with an ending you’ll never see coming!
