Another quick post from me about an absolutely creepy thriller that kept me turning the pages even though I am completely sleep deprived 🙂 Ruth Ware, author of In a Dark, Dark Wood, took me to sea in The Woman In Cabin 10. A cruise trip gone wrong for the main character Lo. She is sent on assignment onto a gorgeous cruise ship. While aboard she meets a young woman who is in the cabin next door. She needs a quick beauty rescue and has quite an abrupt interaction with this woman which seemed odd to Lo. That evening she hears a thud and sees a blood stain on the side of the boat. When she goes to see if everything is ok with her neighbor she discovers she is gone. As the book develops Lo is tested as the rest of the ship never recalls seeing this women making Lo as well as everyone else question her sanity. But she is sure she this woman exists and will stop at nothing to prove it.
This book, like Ware’s debut, is a phenomenal thriller. Ware is excellent at what she does and how she captures the essence of a good mystery is on point. I highly suggest both novels as you will become an instant fan of hers. What’s even more exciting is In a Dark, Dark Wood is coming to the big screen! Not only do I love a good thriller but I love a thriller motion picture even more!
