The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Posted

I selected this book because it was chosen by librarians as the #1 LibraryReads “Favorite of Favorites” for 2016 and I hadn’t read it yet. It did not disappoint. It is a riveting mystery that earned Ware many comparisons to Agatha Christie. 

Travel journalist Laura “Lo” Blacklock has an unexpected opportunity to go on the maiden voyage of a luxury cruise ship. If all goes well, it could mean a promotion. Lo has some personal issues which make others view her as a less than reliable witness to what she says was a murder on the ship. She’s sure she saw someone thrown overboard in the middle of the night, but no passengers are missing and there is no evidence to support what she thinks she saw. She was seen publicly drinking way too much just hours prior to the supposed incident and hadn’t had enough sleep, so maybe it was a dream. 

Lo is determined to prove that she is right and bring justice for the victim. Everyone on the ship becomes a suspect in her eyes. But the deeper she digs, the more dangerous the stakes, and Lo could end up losing much more than just the promotion she was hoping to get from this trip. 

This is an exciting mystery that keeps you guessing until the last page. If you enjoy this book, the library has several other books by Ruth Ware – check them out!
