This wasn’t my favorite book that Ruth Ware has wrote, but it was good enough that I had to stay up late into the night to find out what happens in the end. My all time favorite that I’ve read from her is “In a Dark, Dark Wood“!
One morning a woman is walking her dog by the coast, when her dog finds what appears to much, much more than a stick……opening up an old missing persons case file. The next morning, Fatima, Thea and Isabel receive a text that they hope would never come from Kate….saying “I need you.”
The girls had met at a boarding school and became extremely close. They would play a game called “The Lying Game”, whom each would win points for being the most convincing in a lie as long as they don’t ever lie to each other. Soon their little game turns into something more sinister and the girls are expelled from their school surrounding the mysterious death of Kate’s father, who just happens to be the school art teacher as well.
There are several twists and turns in the story that will keep you reading at a pretty good pace. It’s not as ‘chilling’ as her other books, but it still is a great story. The ending will shock you, but it’s almost fitting in a way.
