I read this book in 6 HOURS.  It was that GOOD!  The first book I read by Ruth Ware was “In a Dark, Dark Wood”, which was fantastic!

Travel reporter Lo Blacklock is given an amazing assignment, a week-long cruise aboard an exclusive luxury ship. Only ten cabins, so the small group of guests will be pampered as they sail from England to Norway. The excursion is lovely at first, but Lo’s fun comes to an end within the first night when she sees a woman tossed overboard from the cabin next door.

I really enjoyed the setting of this mystery. A small ship, alone on the chilly North Sea, spotty internet, seemingly cut off from the rest of the world, possibly with a killer on board. Very eerie and ominous atmosphere. With all passengers and crew accounted for, the others doubt Lo’s story. Then odd things start to happen.

I enjoyed this clever mystery very much. It made me nervous, but it was a good kind of nervous. Lo’s character was kind of a mess, always teetering on the brink madness, which was understandable given the circumstances. Loved the ending too, including the final twist!!
