What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware’s suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller.
Leonora, known to some as Lee and others as Nora, is a reclusive crime writer, unwilling to leave her “nest” of an apartment unless it is absolutely necessary. When a friend she hasn’t seen or spoken to in years unexpectedly invites Nora (Lee?) to a weekend away in an eerie glass house deep in the English countryside, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. Forty-eight hours later, she wakes up in a hospital bed injured but alive, with the knowledge that someone is dead. Wondering not “what happened?” but “what have I done?”, Nora (Lee?) tries to piece together the events of the past weekend. Working to uncover secrets, reveal motives, and find answers, Nora (Lee?) must revisit parts of herself that she would much rather leave buried where they belong: in the past.
I started this book last week after Reese Whitherspoon talked about it on her Instagram, no I am not a stalker! ha! She described it as scary and I was in the mood since it is October and all!
SO was it scary? No, I don’t think it was BUT it was a thriller for sure. This is a Bachelorette party gone wrong but then again it didn’t start off right to begin with either. This book did keep me guessing…. What happened? Who did it? What will happen next? And since I was anxious to find out all the answer I read it in 3 days!
I do recommend this book, it’s a great fun, easy read!! Happy Reading!
