Penguin Random House Blog Tour for YOU’RE INVITED by Amanda Jayatissa

I’m so happy today to take part in the blog tour for this twisty and suspenseful new novel from Amanda Jayatissa. Poor Amaya gets more than she bargained for when she heads to Sri Lanka for a wedding of an old friend. She wants to stop the wedding, but will she resort to murder to do it?


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…

I love these suspenseful, psychological thrillers and I love trying to figure it all out before the last page. This one had the benefit of adding in the beauty of Sri Lanka and its culture. I could NOT put it down! Yes, I figured it out, but it was good and it kept me guessing until near the end!

This was my first novel by this author but I will look for more!

Highly recommended! Thank you for my e-copy and having me as part of the tour!

Here’s a bit about the author:

Amanda Jayatissa grew up in Sri Lanka, completed her undergrad at Mills College, CA, and lived in the UK before moving back to her sunny little island. She works as a corporate trainer, owns a chain of cookie stores, and is a proud dog-mum to her two spoiled huskies.
