The Lying Game- Ruth Ware

I love Ruth Ware. I was a huge fan of both In A Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman In Cabin 10 and have previously done reviews on both. So, naturally, I bombarded Scout Press and they were kind enough to send me an advanced copy of her latest, The Lying Game, coming out July 25th.

Our story follows four best friends reunited by a text in the middle of the night. “I need you” from their friend Kate can only mean one thing, something is very very wrong. Our lead, Isa, rushes to her friends aid bringing her back to her old boarding school which holds quite a few memories, even some that are criminal. A bone has been found near Kate’s childhood home and the four women will do anything to protect not only their friend, but their own lives from being torn apart by this discovery.

The Lying Game is 370 pages long and took me 4 days to read.

Again, I love Ruth Ware and enjoy her writing style so much! I really enjoyed this story and the loops it took me through so I’m giving it a 4 out of 5. I highly recommend this book to any and everyone!

Thank you so much to Scout Press for sending me this copy!

Here’s to the adventure of finding a novel novel!

The Woman In Cabin 10- Ruth Ware 

I’m a big fan of Ruth Ware. The stories she presents to the world are both imaginative and immediately suck you in which is why she has become a New York Times Bestselling author.

Right after having her apartment broken into while she was asleep, Lo Blacklock is scheduled to go on a cruise for her job writing for a travel magazine. This isn’t a normal cruise but a luxury cruise for the extremely wealthy. Naturally, she is still shaken up from her break in and is on edge when she arrives on the Aurora. The first night on board is semi successful but Lo feels she may have drank slightly too much in order to calm her nerves. In the middle of her first night she is awoken by a scream next door and a loud splash. When she voices her concern that she is certain a woman was thrown overboard she is met with criticism. She is told everyone on the Aurora but Lo knows what she heard. How can she prove to those on the boat what she believes without tarnishing her career?

The Woman In Cabin 10 is 340 pages long and took me 3 days to read.

I’m giving this book a 3.5 out of 5 for Ruth Ware’s ability to make you anxious while also forcing you to press further into the story. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to any mystery lovers!
