Ruth Ware is one of my favorite female authors. Her new book, ‘The Turn of the Key’, does not disappoint. Not as good as her other books, but still worth reading.
We meet Rowan, a young woman who accepted a live in nanny position in Scotland. The book is written as a series of letters to a lawyer from the perspective of Rowan. She has been arrested for the murder of one of the children she was hired to care for. As the story unfolds, we find ourselves in a ghost story and murder mystery. By the end, a twist comes in to bring everything into perspective.
It’s a fun October read. Creepy ambiance, a poison garden, a remote location, angry teenagers, ghosts, strange noises in the house, an untruthful nanny. What else could you ask for when the weather turns cold and rainy and you need to cuddle up with a book and a cup of warm apple cider?
