What I Loved: The mystery surrounding the woman was so very intriguing. I was really trying to guess what was going on, and I wasn’t able to do it.
How I Felt: Overall, this book was just ok for me. It was a good book, I would recommend thriller lovers reading it. It just didn’t have as much suspense as I would have liked. I didn’t really like the main character, Lo. She just didn’t do much for me. There wasn’t anything bad about her, she just didn’t have a stand-out personality.
The beginning of the book had Lo’s home being broken into while she was there. I was expecting that to be connected to something else in the book and it wasn’t, (or I didn’t catch that it was). I would have liked to see that tie into the overall story. That would have pushed this to a 4 star for me.
The plot overall was good. It was hard to guess what was happening and the story made sense. I didn’t find any plot holes and the ending was a good one.
To Read or Not To Read: If you are a Ruth Ware fan, you should definitely read this. It’s a good book for readers of suspense and mystery.
Lo Blacklock has just woken up and realized there is a man in her home. He’s dressed with a face mask and gloves and she’s terrified. He locks her in her bedroom where she sits unable to call for help, terrified. After he leaves, she goes to a neighbor and calls for help.
With this very recent burglary still on her mind, she must head to a boutique cruise liner for a week to cover the maiden voyage for her travel magazine. She’s not sleeping much and is awoken in the night by a scream and a splash. She gets to her balcony in time to see a white female hand floating down into the water. She knows she has just witnessed a murder, but no one believes her!
As she tries to get help, she finds that the room next to her, Cabin 10, never had a guest. She knows that someone had been there though, she met her. Now, with a murderer on her heels, can she prove the murder and stay safe until the book docks on dry land?
