Island: off the coast of Ireland

First sentence(s):
The lights go out.

On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom a rising television star. The bride
a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine in a remote location. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?

My two-bits:

Multiple points of view of unreliable and unlikable characters in a wedding celebration setting make this an intrigueing read.

There is a tinge of Irish folklore and hints of a haunted isle that create a creepy vibe.
