Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Amanda Jayatissa!


Thrillers and psychological suspense, usually including cultural elements from Sri Lanka, where I am from. My most recent novel, YOU’RE INVITED, follows a woman who discovers that her ex-best friend is marrying her ex-boyfriend and would go to any length to stop the wedding, until the bride is presumed dead, and she’s blamed for the murder.



When I’m not reading about murder, writing about murder, or dreaming up interesting ways to murder someone (which takes up 90% of my time) I run a cookie shop (such a cliché, right?), run corporate trainings, and am a doting dog mother to my two exuberant huskies.


What Im looking for in my ideal reader match:

  • Someone who
  • loves to play detective
  • watches “Say Yes To The Dress” AND “Dateline”
  • enjoys morally ambiguous characters
  • likes reading about different cultures and experiences
  • prefers a. Their food extra spicy or b. Their hero a little salty


What to expect if we're compatible:

I absolutely live for those “did that just happen?” moments, and my main goal as a writer is to keep my readers on their toes. Expect a web of secrets, dark pasts, lies, and a dash of murder. I’m also known not to shy away from discussing various women’s issues in my writing, and You’re Invited is no different— we touch on friendship breakups, classism, and the lasting impacts of gossip in closed societies.

YOU'RE INVITED by Amanda Jayatissa

You're Invited

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 weeklong 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…
