"From New York Times bestselling author of the "twisty-mystery" (Vulture) novel In a Dark, Dark Wood, comes The Woman in Cabin 10, an equally suspenseful and haunting novel from Ruth Ware--this time, set at sea. In this tightly wound, enthralling story reminiscent of Agatha Christie's works, 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… (més)

I was very excited when Gallery/Scott Press sent me an email with a link to this book on NetGalley. I loved Ruth Ware's In a Dark, Dark Wood and I am looking forward to re-reading it. When I got the link and early access to The Woman in Cabin 10, I was jumping up and down.

The book is about a woman named Lo Blacklock who is a magazine reporter. After being robbed in her home which makes her feel jumpy, she receives an exclusive invitation to board a new Norwegian luxury cruise line.

On the first night, before dinner, she knocks on the door of the cabin next to her (Cabin 10). She sees a woman and asks to borrow some mascara. That evening after drinking a lot and still shaken after the break-in, she awakens to a noise outside of her cabin room. When she walks outside onto the veranda, she hears the sound of a body dropping into the water and sees blood on the side of the ship. When she calls security, the cabin is bare and there are no bloody streaks. Was it just a drunken dream? Was it something else? All she has is the mascara to prove it wasnt a dream. It is now up to Lo to investigate what happened to the woman in cabin 10.

The fun part about this book is that the entire book takes place on an enclosed ship. No one is getting on or off and there is a time limit to the investigation. It is like one of the old Thin Man or Agatha Christie novels. The ship has all sorts of twists and turns, one way doors, and there are only a handful of people to keep track of. The ship will also get smaller the more Lo gets deeper into the mystery.

The other fun part is we have an unreliable narrator. Lo is a pretty heavy drinker, she is paranoid from the break in, she has a history of panic attacks (it seems to be the new thing in novels), and she is on medication that mixed with alcohol can produce images. She is absolutely sure she saw something, but is hazy on the details, can't describe the woman, and was completely drunk when she saw the event. I am a sucker for an unreliable narrator.

I am not going to talk about the twist, but I actually groaned when it was revealed. I will be honest in my review here. Then I thought that if Ware was trying to emulate an Agatha Christie type book, the twist makes perfect sense. If not, it was truly groan worthy.

The book itself moves pretty quickly in the beginning and at the end. The beginning of the middle has a bit of a slowdown, but it revs back up. We get onto the ship very quickly and the dream/murder/drunken images happen very quickly after that. I know it is cliche to say, but this is the perfect beach type read or Saturday type read.

It was a hard call to rate this one because I still had her first book in my head and Ware's sophomore book was good, but not great. Some of the characters are not developed and I even confused a few with one another.

I gave this one 3.5 stars.

I received this book for free from the publishers and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Lo Blacklock is a travel journalist who goes on the maiden voyage of the AURORA BOREALIS, a luxury cruise chip, for an assignment in the Norwegian fjords. Lo witnesses what she believes is a woman being thrown overboard, yet all passengers remain accounted for, and no one believes her. A fast-paced thriller and page turner--and a very easy read. However, there were too many deus ex machina moments and places where i had to truly suspend my disbelief. Still--a fun, watery romp. #claustrophicinwater ( )

This page-turning mystery-thriller tells of a murder that takes place onboard a yacht-sized luxury cruise, but no one believes the main character when she says she heard a splash of a body in the night and saw blood on a glass door. The language is direct, and it kept me interested to find out what happens. We get to know the primary character, Lo, since the story is told from her point of view, but I found it hard to keep track of some of the minor characters who were suspects. I thought there was a missed opportunity for self-reflection at one point when Lo had a bit of time on her hands, which would have provided more insight into deeper aspects of her character, her actions, and her desires. Overall, it was a quick, entertaining, and enjoyable reading experience. Recommended as a “beach book” (but I’d avoid taking it along on a cruise.) ( )

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Laura "Lo" Blacklock is a journalist who writes for a travel magazine. Her new assignment is a week on a luxury cruise-ship (The Aurora) with only a few lavish cabins, traveling the picturesque North Sea.

This is a dream come true for Lo until she witness a horrifying event, a woman thrown overboard. The problem (is) no one believes her. Tides begin to turn as events elevate. She beings to question her own sanity and suspicions of those aboard The Aurora.

The story moves at a steady pace with a who done-it-feel leading to a slow burn. With everyone aboard questionable, Lo's feelings and fears coming to light, I was hooked from the first page. I recommend The Woman in Cabin 10 to those who enjoy mystery and psychological thrillers. ( )

Devoured it in a weekend, but very upset by the multiple red herrings that seemed to be more a lack of good editing than good writing. ( )
