Ruth Ware doesn’t disappoint with her newest novel, The Turn of the Key!! Edge of your seat thriller, captivating, and keeps you wondering....
Rowan Caine is a young lady that has worked as a nanny and in a daycare center. Rowan responded to an ad for a live in nanny that she saw in the newspaper, and was swept up to Heatherbrae house in Scotland for an interview. Things seem too good to be true while she is at her interview - the children are well behaved, the mom is attentive and friendly, and the family is incredibly wealthy and offering an astounding yearly salary to Rowan. Rowan excitedly accepts the job and wraps things up in London to return to Heatherbrae. From here, things rapidly get strange. Rowan is left to care for the children and piece together what is causing the problems - is Heatherbrae haunted by the ghosts of its past, or is there a more earthly explanation for these troubles?
One of my favorite things about Ruth Ware’s books is how different, yet captivating, they all are. The Turn of the Key is written in a completely different style from her previous books, as it is a collection of letters written by Rowan. The letters start out short and choppy, as Rowan can’t quite decide how to start. However, they rapidly move into longer letters that unveil the nail biting tale that unfolded at the Heatherbrae house. I couldn’t put this one down, and was continuously working to piece together the clues given to us. However, the ending still surprised me, and I reread it just because I was so surprised!!
Another great thriller from Ruth Ware- I need you people to hurry up and get this book when it is published (August 6th) and quickly read it so we can talk about it!!!! Thanks to Simon & Schuster for the advance copy!!
