Book Review: Woman in Cabin 10


BOOK: The Woman in Cabin 10

AUTHOR: Ruth Ware


Stars: ⭐⭐⭐ and 1/2

After reading (AND LOVING) Turn of the Key, I felt like I should read more by this author. The premise of this book was interesting and for the first half to three quarters of the book, I really did enjoy it. You will have to watch my video review of what didn’t work for me, but overall this book was really solid. There is a certain element of what is real and what is in Lo’s mind and imagined that moves the story along in a fun way. 

Plus you could see this happening. With all the stories of people falling overboard on cruise ships lately, the premise seems very plausible.  


Short Synopsis (from Goodreads):

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.
