The Woman in Cabin 10

The Woman in Cabin 10The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I loved Ruth Ware’s In a Dark Dark Wood, so I had high hopes for her second novel but I don’t think it’s anywhere near as good. It follows a similar format, writer trapped in isolated social situation, in this case a luxury boat, where someone dies. But the cast of characters in The Woman in Cabin 10, is a bit bigger than the cast of characters in In a Dark Dark Wood, so you don’t get to know each character (and pretty much all of them are suspects in the death) as well, so it feels much less involved. It is a clever idea, the main character believing she’s witnessed a murder aboard a boat, when not many other people on the boat believe her and it did pick up towards the end but it was a little meh.
