Well that was a much better read for me than the author’s first book, IN A DARK, DARK WOOD as it was slow-moving for me and just didn’t maintain my interest. This one though was fast-paced and had me entertained and engaged right from the very first chapter.
THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 by RUTH WARE was a chilling and suspenseful thriller with the perfect setting for a mystery on a small luxurious cruise liner with only 10 cabins set to sail from London to Norway. I was really intrigued with the setting and plot of this novel as I have always wanted to take a vacation on a Luxury Cruise Liner.
I fell in love with THE COVER of this book when I first seen it and have been obsessed with reading it ever since, that is the main reason that I chose this book to read. Awesome embossed cover of water spots on a porthole window with the ocean waves in the background!
THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 isn’t all that creative of a TITLE but is fitting as there is a mystery that develops as we follow along the voyage of the Aurora about who the woman in Cabin 10 is that Laura (Lo) Blacklock seen and believes to have been murdered. Her sanity is questioned here as Cabin 10 was unoccupied but she is determined to prove that someone was indeed in Cabin 10 and murdered.
This novel was filled with a few CHARACTERS and I had a little bit of problem at times keeping track of who the secondary ones were, but it didn’t really disrupt me from the storyline though. RUTH WARE delivers an atmospheric and suspenseful story here with a few good twists that had me questioning and guessing what actually happened and who was involved. Although there were a few things that happened in this book that I felt were never answered or missing from the plot.
The ENDING was intense, exciting, and very satisfying with a surprising twist for another enjoyable read.
To sum it all up it was an entertaining, enjoyable, suspenseful, fast-paced, quick and easy read with a twist ending. Would recommend!!
