Review: The Midnight Feast - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

 Secrets. Lies. Murder. Let the festivities begin…

It’s the opening night of The Manor, the newest and hottest luxury resort, and no expense, small or large, has been spared. The infinity pool sparkles; the “Manor Mule” cocktail (grapefruit, ginger, vodka, and a dash of CBD oil) is being poured with a heavy hand. Everyone is wearing linen.

But under the burning midsummer sun, darkness stirs. Old friends and enemies circulate among the guests. Just outside the Manor’s immaculately kept grounds, an ancient forest bristles with secrets. And it’s not too long before the local police are called. Turns out the past has crashed the party, with deadly results.


Everyone’s got a secret. Everyone’s got an agenda. But not everyone will survive…The Midnight Feast

Review: The Midnight Feast

Review: The Midnight Feast

A glittering resort’s grand opening spirals into a weekend of terror, leaving only ashes and death in its wake.

Francesca Meadows spares no expense on The Manor’s grand debut—a luxury resort built along the Dorset coastline and backing into a dense bristle of forest. Touting specialty cocktails, wellness amenities, crystal pouches, and custom totes for each guest—The Manor feels like a dream with its glimmering lanterns. But as the linen-clad guests mingle under the midsummer sun, old enemies deceitfully lurk, and the ancient forest, disturbed by the revelry, seethes for reparations of transgressions past.

“Keep the birds happy!” Francesca’s grandfa warned.

As the solstice celebration approaches, cloaked enemies reveal themselves, and black feathers ominously flutter across the property. By morning, the resort is reduced to ashes, and bodies are discovered.

Through multiple perspectives, the story alternates between past and present, weaving a sinister narrative infused with folklore (reminiscent of Hitchcock’s The Birds). As identities and connections unravel, we question: What really happened? Is it ‘The Birds,’ a specter from Francesca’s past, or something else entirely? Who is dead, and what truly happened at the midnight feast?

Foley masterfully crafts a narrative shrouded in menace and mystery. Despite what sometimes felt like a bewildering array of characters and shifting timelines, the story accelerates to an exciting and shocking set of final chapters.

Everyone hides something in this locked-room mystery teeming with myth, murder, secrets, and scores to settle—a deliciously dark summertime escape.
