    Ingenious plot

    Ruth Ware’s writing is easy to read. The plot seemingly simple to follow until the end when it unravels.

    A Sensational Read!

    This was my first Ruth Ware Novel and it was a sensational read! The story was set in Heatherbrae House which was a jarring blend of all things Victorian with the tech additions and conversions that made it a smart home. With cameras everywhere and state of the art controlling systems, strange and eerie happenings created a creepy, menacing and ghostly atmosphere within Heatherbrae. Disconcerting and unnerving, Ruth Ware portrayed the setting and surrounding environment of the story beautifully. I certainly felt at times that I was in the Scottish Highlands at Heatherbrae House, sharing Rowan's harrowing and alarming experiences alongside her. Rowan was in prison awaiting her trial, concerned with her legal representation, and writing a letter to a solicitor, Mr Wrexham, proclaiming her innocence of the crime she has been charged with and laying out the circumstances which led to her nightmarish predicament. She was an extremely unreliable narrator and the characters were almost universally exceptionable, adding sustenance to the story. All in all, a masterpiece of a story with a flourishing and fantastic finish! Thank you to Ruth Ware and Pigeonhole for giving me the opportunity to read this book. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Turn of the Key

    Really 3.5 star. A mystery/ghost story, an original idea written in the first person as a letter. Unfortunatly the main character is'nt very appealing, and the author just hasn't perfected their craft yet

    A mystery in the Scottish Highlands

    This is another great instalment from Ruth Ware. She really can hold suspense and keep the reader hooked right up until the very end. This is a dark mystery, it's eerie and very very creepy, The setting is wonderful, in the highlands in Scotland. The house is old but has been totally modernised with state of the art technology to become a smart home. Rowan the lead protagonist is thrilled when she is offered a job that seems too good to be true, as nanny to four children in Scotland. The pay is excellent but the work load is heavy as the parents, Bill and Sandra, both architects work away from home a lot. Something is amiss however as many nannies before her have abruptly vacated their positions. Rowan the nanny gives her version of the tale in a series of letters to the solicitor Mr Wrexham proclaiming her innocence and giving her account of all the strange and unusual events that happened at Heatherbrae House, the home in which she was employed, that led to the death of a child and her subsequent imprisonment. She isn't particularly endearing as a character and even admits in the letters to some of her short comings as a nanny, Ruth Ware does evil and twisted very well and succeeds here in telling a very twisted tale. It was an easy thriller to become immersed in, it kept me guessing and I enjoyed it a lot. 4 stars from me!!!
