The premise is absolutely fantastic! I love locked-room mysteries, and 1920’s themed party at a secluded island seems like a perfect setting for it! I can already tell that the characters have some deep-seated resentment toward each other, and now they are sealed off from the rest of the world for a whole week. What can possibly go wrong? It reminds me a bit of The Legacies by Jessica Goodman, which was also featured on BookishFirst a while back. I'm so excited to find out what happens next!

The cover design is absolutely perfect with its royal purple hues, tangled pearls, and gleaming golden knife, it definitely gives off a sense of glamour and deadly intrigue! It grabbed my attention right away!
