Publisher's Summary

What could be worse than your ex-boyfriend marrying your childhood best friend? Getting accused of her murder… From the author of My Sweet Girl comes a dangerously addictive new thriller about a lavish Sri Lankan wedding celebration that not everyone will survive.

When Amaya is invited to Kaavi’s over-the-top wedding in Sri Lanka, she is surprised and a little hurt to hear from her former best friend after so many years of radio silence. But when Amaya learns that the groom is her very own ex-boyfriend, she is consumed by a single thought: She must stop the wedding from happening, no matter the cost. But as the week of wedding celebrations begin and rumors about Amaya’s past begin to swirl, she can’t help but feel like she also has a target on her back. When Kaavi goes missing and is presumed dead, all evidence points to Amaya. However, nothing is as it seems as Jayatissa expertly unravels that each wedding guest has their own dark secret and agenda, and Amaya may not be the only one with a plan to keep the bride from getting her happily ever after…

"Filled with kaleidoscope twists and turns I could not turn the pages fast enough in this delicious follow-up to My Sweet Girl. When Amaya receives an invitation to the lavish Sri Lankan wedding of her ex-boyfriend and her ex-best friend, her decision to attend is only the first mystery at the heart of this unputdownable thriller."  —Greer Hendricks, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of The Wife Between Us

"Whip smart and expertly plotted with perfectly arranged clues and an explosive finale…will have readers guessing who they can trust and who the real villain is in this wickedly good thriller." —Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of Local Woman Missing 

"A rollercoaster of a thrill-ride that will have you guessing at every corkscrew turn. Richly layered and told through multiple points of view...this heady thriller is Knives Out meets The Guest List and will leave a Gillian Flynn-shaped hole daggered through your heart.” —May Cobb, author of The Hunting Wives

Entertaining,

While entertaining, this book is not an easy one to keep you glued to it. I often find myself bored with the constant changing direction the plot followed and the slow building for the story to get somewhere, not very much surprised by the ending, if you are a concentrated reader, you knew what was coming. I found that first part of the book shadowed the second/ending. The characters where predictable, but well described, and the story pintoresque, and vivid like reading some lalaland kind of story, but to much of a preamble for my taste.
Overall, a bit fun but challenging to finish.

Second narrator ruined the book!

This could’ve been a great book, i don’t even know bc I couldn’t stand the second narrator so much I stopped on chapter 12. I listened to the sample & that’s the main narrator, she did great, but the second one speaks in some sort of horrific fake African accent, it’s hard to understand & so annoying to listen to I stopped. I tried. I actually very rarely quit mid book, even when they’re not great. Waste of a credit. Don’t do difficult accents in an audible book! Or at least not SO MUCH of it. A few lines here & there, but entire chapters ? No. The accents are not needed to tell the story. It actually took away from the story.

You're Invited...to read this review!


Set on the island country of Sri Lanka, influencer and Columbo sweetheart, Kaavi is about the marry American entrepenuer Spencer, in a lavish wedding that has the whole island abuzz.

While stateside Kaavi's ex-best friend, Amanya, tries to remake a life for herself after her self banishment from her homeland only to be surprised by an invation from Kaavi to attend her wedding to Spencer...who just so happens to be Amanya's ex-boyfriend.

Amongst sari fittings and makeup tutorials, family secrets spill out threatening to destroy the lives of all involved. The wedding approaches as Kaavi goes missing, presumed dead, leading all fingers to point at Amanya.

But everyone has secrets of their own...so the question is, whose secret is worth killing for?


'You're Invited' is told primarily from the perspectives of Amanya and Kaavi, with police statements from various other charecters interpersed, which can be an impactful storytelling tool but in this instance becomes more repetitive than propelling. I listened to this as an audio, and found the start of the book to be strong, losing steam around 1/3 of the way in before picking up again in the final few chapters. But there in the middle I kept upping the speed of the audio book so I could get through it quicker as I found myself losing interest due to the repetition of passages. That being said, Jayatissa ended the book wonderfully twisty to which I appalude her and do look forward to reading more from her as she continues to grow as a writer.

Twists & Turns

This book is a really fun read. The characters are believable and the different personalities are very well written.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I am anxious to read other titles.
I loved the location. I have never read anything using Sri Lanka as the setting. The descriptions of the city and local customs were most enjoyable.
I don’t always recommend what I listen to but if you’re looking for some good entertainment then this book is for you.
