Book Review / The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

In this tightly wound story, 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. 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 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…

With surprising twists and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another intense read.

After reading In A Dark Dark Wood, I knew I had to pick up this one up as soon as I could.  In fact, I was so excited to read this one I sat down on a quiet Sunday morning to read for an hour or two and ended up not really moving from that spot until the very last page.  I just could not put it down.  Although predictable in places, this book kept me hooked wondering what on earth was going on.  Being only 340 pages this book was packed to the brim full of twists & turns and surprises.  

What I loved the most has to be the twist in the plot nearer the end of the story where there is a big reveal, you find out what has been happening but the story's not over yet.  There's a few more twists and turns that are yet to be discovered.  I must have spent the entire time reading this book wondering what was going to happen next and who was responsible!
