I have gone through the entire day thinking it was Monday, but in reality it’s Tuesday. Those three day weekends are nice, but damn they throw off the whole schedule!
Thanks to Gallery Books for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review.
THE DEATH OF MRS. WESTAWAY – Ruth Ware (out today!)
Check back for the #allthebookreviews thoughts on this one 🙂
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
I’ve loved reading Ruth Ware’s books and she has become an insta-buy author for me. So, naturally, when I saw she had another coming out I had to grab it! THE DEATH OF MRS. WESTAWAY is more in the psychological suspense genre and I flew through it.
Hal, a tarot card reader, has received a letter explaining that she has just been granted a substantial inheritance. After investigating a little further, she quickly realizes that this was sent to her by mistake, but that there is the potential she could still claim the money. The more time Hal spends with the late Mrs. Westaway’s family, she begins to feel uneasy about the entire situation. Is this truly a case of mistaken identity?
Ruth Ware does a great job with the flow of this book. It’s the right pacing that will keep you flipping those pages and will pique your curiosity. I found the tarot card element really interesting, mainly because that’s not something I know too much about. While this didn’t have the crazy twists in it, I was still invested in Hal and in the story. If you’re looking for a twisty thrill ride, then this might not be the right one. However, if you’re looking for an eerie and suspenseful read with a sense of unease and dread, then grab this one for the summer!
If you’re a fan of Ruth Ware then you can’t miss this one.
