The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware
The Turn of the Key is my favorite Ruth Ware book to date. The book is full of creepy plot twists and turns and many surprises, which keep coming and coming as the story unfolds. What I like about this author's writing is the realism of the characters.
I know I've stumbled upon a good book when I can't figure out the mystery. The story is not a cookie cutter mystery, and it is not obvious what is happening; the story is suspenseful and unpredictable.
Writing to her lawyer from prison, Rowan struggles to explain the events that led to her incarceration. The plot weaves through the creepiness of the technology-enhanced house to unexplained events and previous owners and their history and when the reader thinks the story is going one way, then "bam" the plot turns and goes down a different path.
A good book overall, and the ending, for me, was shocking.
Until next time, happy reading, and have a wonderful weekend.
