Happy Book Pub Day to Ruth Ware’s “The Woman in Cabin 10”!!!
(pic taken from Amazon.com)
After reading Ruth Ware’s first novel “in a dark, dark wood” I fell in love with her writing style and immediately pre-ordered this one, even though I didn’t read the blurb about it.
In this tightly wound, enthralling story reminiscent of Agatha Christie’s works, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong…
After reading this, it has made me very excited to get to this one. And a little extra excited since I will be going on a cruise in the spring.
Now the only question I ask myself, do I read this now or save it and read it on my cruise???
By the way, the dusk jacket is fricken amazing!
