Ruth Ware, author of In a Dark Dark Wood is back with The Woman in Cabin 10 (july 19th) and I could not be more excited for this. When I saw it listed on gizmodos books to read list, I silently whispered
a common sign that something incredible is about to happen and one must give it proper attention. Now is an amazing time to hop aboard the hold train to make sure your library has this book in stock when it comes out. It sounds like it’s going to be a great summer read.
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. (via amazon)
