It's been a very long time since I had the pleasure of reading a book that I absolutely did not want to put down, that is until I read The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.
After the first quarter of the book, the intensity picked up and all I wanted to do was keep reading and reading. Every spare minute I had was spent with my nose in this book.
It is a page turning, psychological thriller, with so many spine-tingling twists and turns that you are left questioning everything until the final page.
In this book, we meet our main character, Lo Blacklock. She is a travel writer who just happens to score the job of a lifetime that could skyrocket her career. There is a new luxury cruise ship, the Aurora, embarking on its maiden voyage and Lo has been assigned. She couldn't wait for the quiet, calm waters and clear skies, with a few networking opportunities with guests. Anything to take her mind off of the crime that took place in her home just a few short days before.
As soon as she boards, she loves how elegant everything is, even the guests rooms are spacious with wide open doors looking out at the sea. However, the first night at sea, Lo is awakened by a splash out her window and what appears to be a body disappearing below the waters. Yet upon investigation, everyone on board is accounted for and no other person recalls seeing the woman Lo had met.
Lo knows she didn't imagine it, and is on the hunt to find out who the woman in cabin 10 was and what happened to her. Was she killed? And if so, does that mean that she is in danger now?
Ruth Ware has such a way with words that you are easily drawn into the world she has created. You feel as though you are on that maiden voyage of the Aurora with her, wandering through the claustrophobic under dwellings of the cruise ship, feeling as though your life is spinning out of control. Her main character, Lo, is so well laid out and it is easy to feel as though you know her personally and can easily empathize with what she is going through.
The plot is as churning as the waters in the seas and it takes you on a wild ride searching for the truth.
This book is the best book I have read in a very long time and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read! There's suspense, mystery, and possibly murder, but you will have to read it to find out!
