The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware ~ “Beach Bites”


Another quick post from me about an absolutely creepy thriller that kept me turning the pages even though I am completely sleep deprived ūüôā ¬†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!

Happy Halloween fellow bliss seekers and book worms!  Quick post today for book readers who dare.  I finished up in a dark, dark wood by Ruth Ware this week for my inaugural book club meeting with my fellow Simmons College gals.  What a spooky, suspenseful, thriller worthy of all its current accolades.  The story takes place on a hen, which is a british version of a bachelorette party, where a group of people do not know the weekend that lay ahead.  Murder, mystery and a house picturesque for a horror movie, are the perfect blend of macabre for this fantastic read.  Luckily for us readers, Reese Witherspoon bought the rights and will be making this thriller into a movie!  Once you read it, you will see its the perfect book to keep you on the edge of your seat in a theater!  Enjoy your evening ~ trick or treat?!
